You can grow your own food. And we can help!

StarChild Science Healthy Living Initiative

Spring is right in front of today!

Our new poster image is created for children to allow them to focus on backyard gardens, school gardens. I find that when I have a powerful image for children, whether it is of a flower, an animal or whatever, that makes it infinitely easier for them to understand what I am telling them or reading to them. Backyard gardens are an opportunity to get the children into their habitat in a meaningful way,

Our healthy living poster is now selling well in Europe, but I don't like the things the purchasers are telling us. They say they are buying our Do you hear the call? poster because they don't want their kids looking like our kids. This is really embarrassing. Any suggestions?

Urban Farm Magazine wrote a great article about the poster called Happy, Healthy Children in their Jan/Feb issue page 10. They are working hard to explore all the possibilities for children to focus on healthy living.
Check out our healthy living animations with Chef Timothy Cipriano, Director of Chefs Move to Schools. He loves children and wants to make waves in school kitchens. Go to: and our and pages. He is very cool!
