Cranford Church Hosts “Stirring the Pot: How Food Makes Us Sick, Keeps Us Well and Drives Us Crazy”
Sponsored by Fearless Parent (FearlessParent.org) and The Thinking Moms’ Revolution (ThinkingMomsRevolution.com), “Stirring the Pot: How Food Makes Us Sick, Keeps Us Well and Drives Us Crazy” is a community event to be held on May 3 from noon to 5pm at the Calvary Tabernacle Church in Cranford. On hand will be local diet and nutrition experts to help answer some of the pressing food issues faced by our families today and provide realistic strategies for parents. The event costs $25/($36 including lunch option) before 4/25; $35 after 4/25 (no lunch option).
Moderated by Louise Kuo Habakus of Fearless Parent, the event features Kelly Brogan, M.D.; Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo, a leading health and nutrition informational website; Jennifer Fugo of Gluten Free School; and Camille Miller of the Northeast Organic Farmers Association of New Jersey (NOFA-NJ). The panelists will offer practical solutions to common food issues and special diets and will discuss the science behind gluten-free and paleo diets. Parents will learn how to feed their families nutrient-dense foods on a budget and learn the facts about genetically modified foods (GMOs). A health-coach round-robin will offer straight answers to diet questions and practical strategies to solve diet problems. There will also be a question-and-answer session.
Dozens of local health-conscious vendors will provide samples of their products, and attendees will receive a valuable gift bag. Healthy lunch options are available for purchase with advance registration.
