PIFS - Children & Nutrition

 

Special thanks to Dr. Erik Cohen and Dr. Vidya Anegundi from Next Generation Pediatrics and to Hala Si-Ahmed of AaHa Restart Cleanse for meeting with parents at PIFS on Wednesday to discuss nutrition. If you missed the program, please take a look at the family friendly recipes!

Also, please stop by Mike’s Organic Warehouse MRKT on Thursday, April 26, 9:00 a.m.-Noon and pick up fresh, organic produce, grass-fed meats and dairy, plus other local goodies. Mike is donating 10% of sales during that time back to PIFS! Support our school and stock up on healthy groceries at the same time.”
