Hillary Feerick and Jeff Hillenbrand have been married for 15 years and have two young children. Months before their first child was born, they began to delve more deeply into infant and maternal nutrition. Health and wellness were priorities for their family, and they wanted to give their children the healthiest start possible. Six years later, compelled by the difficulties of raising healthy children in a fast-paced, junk-food-filled world, they decided to combine their expertise in health (Jeff holds a BS in exercise science) and writing (Hillary holds a BA and MA in English and is an English teacher) to create Mitch Spinach, a healthy role model for children. They wrote the first book in the series, The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach, with a passion to help abate the trend in nutrition-related diseases, such as type II diabetes, childhood obesity, ADD, ADHD, and chronically low immune systems.

Many people are unaware that teens and preteens can be brought from detention and correctional facilities to juvenile court in leg irons, belly chains and handcuffs, often even before a youth is charged with any wrongdoing. The practice of shackling rarely occurs with adults in criminal court, but is a common sight in juvenile courts across the country and its use is frequently unrelated to any identified safety or flight risks. Shackling interferes with due process and increases poor outcomes for youth. Numerous jurisdictions have successfully reduced or stopped the use of shackles without increasing risk to their communities. On this episode of Spotlight on Youth, guests will discuss why shackling is harmful, explain the national movement that exists to end the indiscriminate practice, and share their efforts and experiences in changing the norm for kids in juvenile court.

On It's Story Time: Dreamtime Man by Margot Finke & Emma Learns to Sprout by Shir Guez and read by Author Agy Wilson.
Dreamtime Man ~ lyrical rhyming verses take us back in time, to how Australian Aboriginal tribes lived for tens of thousands of years. Their belief in the Dreamtime shaped their lives. What happened to these vibrant people when they first came in contact with white settlers had tragic consequences, and their culture and way of life was changed forever. Finke's story is based on a fascinating part of Australian history. www.amazon.com/Dreamtime-Man-Margot-Finke/dp/1503276988 Margot Finke’s site: www.margotfinke.com

A little girl is presented with a different sort of a meal when her mom serves her green gooey goop. Interesting and icky ingredients appear one by one as the little girl decides what's in this noxious-smelling concoction. The little girl creates a flood, and her dog's fur turns green. Suggested age range for readers: 0-8
This book was written to capture the moment when a child is confronted by healthy food that, while nutritious, may not appear to be delicious. Many children react imaginatively to new foods, and the child in this book is no exception. She envisions the ingredients as other than what her mother describes in the first part of the book in an attempt to get out of eating the food. When she realizes she must eat it anyway, it spills onto the family dog, who may or may not be green forever!
I hope you enjoy starting a conversation with your child about the value of eating healthy foods that also taste delicious. Thank you for reading Green Gooey Goop!
