Our Story

How it all began.

 

We have 2 little girls who are now 8 and 4, and we have continuously struggled to get them to try new things, especially when it comes to fruits and veggies.

 

One morning, we were eating breakfast and trying to get our youngest, Ali, to try a banana. I mean what kid doesn’t like a banana, right?!? So one of us said you could earn a banana badge if you try it and the other said you could be in the Food Explorer Club. And you know what … it worked! She actually tried it. She didn’t like it at the time but at least she tried it, so we knew we were on to something. Then we tried it again and got our oldest, Ree, to try salmon – aka, “pink meat” – and it worked for her too!

 

So we got started planning the Food Explorer Club app and putting things into motion. So here we are…with are first version of the app, and we are so excited for you to try it with your kids to see how they respond. We can’t wait to get your feedback!
