For my mother, who was always there to encourage her children to be happy, confident,
and healthy. Thanks, Mom, for sending me outdoors to play, for reminding me that
life’s “little things” will come and go, and for making sure my plate was always full of
nutritious things to eat. You are the best.
—Sharon To my children, who put up with the many evenings I spent in front of the computer
instead of with them, who tolerated my random food experiments while writing the
nutrition chapter—although I may never live down the mashed cauliflower debacle—
and who inspire me daily to be someone who tries to make the world just a bit better
for them and their generation.
