Filmmaker and Mom, Amy Kalafa of Weston, CT, made the movie, ‘Two Angry Moms,’ because she was fed up with her children eating highly-processed food filled with additives and preservatives at school.
Now, a local Mom, Rachael Hilliker, wants other Lansing Moms to come together to look at what our children are eating in our schools, and learn what we can do to ensure they are eating food that is better for them.
A growing number of kids aren’t getting enough vital nutrients, the kind found only in real, whole food. If your kids are eating pizza, chicken nuggets and100-calorie snack bags, chances are they aren’t getting the right kind of nutrition for proper growth, academic and athletic performance.
