Help Fund This Year’s Real Kids Real Food
Thanks to the generosity of many supporters
We raised $6,287 on the Opening Day of our campaign which will enable us to publish a “How To” e-book to launch Real Kids Real Food in communities around the country!
Our goal now is to raise $13,815
more to fund our existing 2014-2015 Real Kids Real Food Program.

What We Are
Real Kids Real Food’s goal is to eliminate childhood obesity, chronic disease and malnutrition through after-school programs that promote healthy food choices and lifestyle changes, including:
- Gardening and harvesting
- Hands-on food preparation of delicious recipes
- Learning about eating right & staying active
Publishing an E-teaching manual of our proven program with lesson plans, health tips and recipes will enable organizations to bring Real Kids, Real Food successfully to their communities. We need your help to bring wholesome, nourishing food to children everywhere!
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.
Your contribution to this project will enable us to distribute our book nationwide to communities that have expressed a desire to launch this program. This will make a difference in the lives of thousands of children by preventing and reversing obesity, chronic disease and malnutrition.
Now, that we have funding for the e-book, we ask your help to fund next year’s 11 month program from October 2014 to the end of August 2015 which includes Summer Camp. The cost of the program is $13,815. We are applying for grants, but can not count on them. Your help is desperately needed.
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.
Optimum Health Solution is a non-profit (501 c3) devoted to feeding our children a healthy future. Our Mission Statement is to eliminate obesity, chronic disease and malnutrition, especially in children, through education and advocacy of healthy living.
