nutrition information blog for families

About Maggie

I am a nurse and a mother of two.  I am also the founder of Nourish Interactive. I am very concerned about the health and well being of our children.  I started the Nourishing Thoughts Blog so that I could help parents keep up on the latest trends in children’s nutrition and exercise. 

I know that much like reading and writing is the foundation for learning, nutrition is the foundation for healthy children.  But with so many new studies, products and trends constantly being reported it is hard to keep up.  I just want to make it a little easier for parents by doing some of the legwork and providing you with up to date information.

Healthy lunches are about quality over quanity

When I was growing up, I pretty much ate homemade lunches. We did not have a regular school lunch. I remember a couple of friends who sometimes did not have lunch. I was young and really did not think much about what this meant to these kids. I ...

How many kids are affected by local Farm to School programs- you may be surprised!

National Farm to School Month Brings Back Family Memories

I grew up in the city of San Francisco. Needless to say, I did not have access to farms. That was something I read about in my favorite storybooks. Back in those days, (don't want to age myself) we did not have farmers markets. However, if you t...
