What We Are

Real Kids Real Food’s goal is to reduce childhood obesity, chronic disease and malnutrition through after-school programs that promote healthy food choices and lifestyle changes.

  • Gardening and harvesting
  • Hands-on food preparation of delicious recipes
  • Learning about eating right


Optimum Health Solution is a non-profit (501 c3) devoted to feeding our children a healthy future. Our Mission Statement is to prevent obesity, chronic disease and malnutrition, especially in children, through education and advocacy of healthy living.

Why It Matters

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.

In 2012, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. 70% of obese youth had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Obese adolescents are more prone to pre-diabetes. You can contribute financially, take photos or work with our team to help launch Real Kids, Read Food events and e-books to communities nationwide.

Founding of Real Kids Real Food

My passion for healing the world one person at a time began with my own recovery from crippling arthritis and substance abuse through the living food lifestyle. The Real Kids Real Food program began at the Martin Luther King School, located in Dorchester, MA. My adult classes, since 2008, are based on my book “Eat to Thrive-10 Weeks to Lifelong healthy habits and healthy living”. In these classes I address health issues and introduce a healthy lifestyle as well as train staff for Real Kids Real Food.
