In case you couldn't tell by now, I have a huge passion for encouraging kids of all ages (1-100!) to eat wholesome foods and try energizing new exercises.

Join my "Yummy Yoga" party by whipping up these tasty, kid-friendly recipes — and striking a pose. Let's get our kids on a path to good health!
