  1. Hi,
    I’m Melinda Kelley, one of the managers of the We Can! program – you posted on our FB page a couple of days ago (I responded this morning). I wanted to let you know that we are working with Let’s Move to train community leaders in our Parent Program – which focuses on the behavioral objectives of eating more healthfully, being more active, and reducing screen time. Anyone can be trained to run our program, you don’t have to be an RD, health educator, etc. The bottom line is we are trying to educate more parents to improve their family’s lifestyles – but we need community leaders to do the hands-on teaching (we can only “train the trainers”). If you are interested in joining our next webinar, it will be on August 28th. We’ll have more in the fall. You can find a link to sign up for the late August training – as well as see future dates as we add them – on this page: http://www.hhs.gov/partnerships/letsmove/.

    As a native Kentuckian (I am from Winchester :-)) I applaud your efforts!!
    Thanks, Melinda

    thanks,

  2. Interested in guest posting on kyhealthykids.com

    Hi,

    It’s so nice to meet you! I came across your wonderful site, http://kyhealthykids.com/ , while doing some research on healthy living, and I was very impressed! I noticed a few posts from outside contributors and am wondering if you still allow guest authors?

    The reason I ask is because I would love to contribute to your blog and give your readers another piece that would be worthwhile. As a health enthusiast, my writing mostly covers personal health and fitness. I personally love encouraging others to improve their lifestyles. Please feel free to take a look at some of my writing samples here: http://www.shannonlochwood.jux.com

    If you’re interested at all, I would love to send along a few topic ideas so we can get started. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

    Have a wonderful day and thank you for your time!

    Warm Regards,
    Shannon Lochwood

  3. Hi Casey,

    I just learned about your blog, and I think it’s great!

    My name is Laura from Veggi Rider. We’re a grassroot mom-and-dad company and we’ve recently launched the Veggi Rider iPad app. Veggi Rider is an app that inspires families to cook healthy, sustainable meals at home. Apart from plant based recipes, how-to pics (over 500), stories and playful design, Veggi Rider also features a crash course on nutrition, featuring subjects like fat, sugar, protein, food additives, healthy weight, gardening, salt, fiber, calories, drinks, portions and much more. Veggi Rider is a valuable tool for any household, empowering parents and children to take action and to make healthy choices.

    Since we both share the same mission, I hope you have time to take a peek at Veggi Rider and (if you like it:) tell your friends and readers about it.

    Fore additional info, see the landings page: http://www.veggirider.com, which also features a Press release with extra info.

    Best regards,

    Laura Emmelkamp
    Co-founder Veggi Rider

    PS: A free trial version on Veggi Rider is available to all; this trial version features about 30% of all content. The complete version can be purchased for $2,99. We would have loved to give you a promo code, alas Apple doesn’t support promo codes for apps with in app purchases.

  4. Hi Casey,
    My name is Jenn, I’m an intern for Sarah Wilson (www.sarahwilson.com) and her program I Quit Sugar (www.IQuitSugar.com). I’d love discuss the I Quit Sugar Kids Cookbook with you. Do you have an email address that I can reach you on? Or would you mind emailing me jenn@iquitsugar.com please? I’ll tweet you as well…
    Many thanks! Jenn
