Pleasing the taste buds of Picky Eaters
CC Minton, the creator of Daddy's Greek Potato Pie, visits schools, libraries, and bookstores to speak to children, educators, and parents about how to encourage healthy eating.
She emphasizes the benefits of decreasing sugar intake by incorporating targeted food choices and an active lifestyle into children's daily lives. Her presentations engage children and parents to think about how it is never too early to live healthily and about how small acts make a difference to the body. The presentation usually includes the reading of Daddy's Greek Potato Pie book, making the pie, and other healthy treats.
CC's passion for a healthy lifestyle took her from the kitchen of her home to The White House. Invited by the Press Office of First Lady Michelle Obama to cover The White House Kids’ State Dinner, she took readers on a visual journey inside the East Room and outside of The White House Kitchen Garden.
An award-winning lifestyle advocate, she is the recipient of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition Community Leadership award, CC resides in northern New Jersey with her family and divides her time between Dallas and the City of Paris.
