What's your favorite FLIK recipe?

What's your favorite spice or flavor? 


As an RD with our schools division, what's one piece of advice you would give for getting kids to try new foods and flavors? 

When introducing a new food to kids it’s OK if they don’t want to try it. Encourage them to explore the food with their other senses like site, smell, and touch. Simply discussing the colors, smells and textures are a great start.

What's one simple family wellness tip you live by? 

You can take your child to the store and have them pick out a fruit, vegetable or whole grain to cook with and then find an online cooking video (like our Teaching Kitchen videos) to follow along with. 

Tell us you're a dietitian without telling us you're a dietitian...

On weekends I enjoy going to the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market and trying less common vegetables like kohlrabi, celery root and garlic scapes.
