Jennifer Anderson is a mom, wife, and registered dietitian.

She has two little guys who are 3 and 5 and is happily married. They live in Maryland and in her words, "does mostly stereotypical "boy stuff" (think extreme dirt and rocks) in their free time."

When she was a new mom, she learned that feeding kids is sometimes tricky. Her first kid fell off the growth chart and she learned how much effort can go into feeding a child.

At the same time, she's learned to remind herself that she's a great mom, regardless of whether her kids eat their veggies (or whatever food) today. If she focuses on small improvements and little changes, big things can happen in the food department.

That’s when Kids.Eat.In.Color was born, and now Jennifer empowers mommas all around the world to help their kids eat more color, in a fun, freeing, non-pressured way!
