Jennifer and her family

Blogger Jennifer Kolodziej, author of the successful “Mommy blog,” Tastefully Childish, has written an insightful post about her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis and how it led her to teach her children about the value of a healthy diet. Jennifer, sister of Prevent Cancer Foundation Accountant Elliot Turner, also wanted to broaden her children’s knowledge about other cultures so she used the Foundation community grant-funded Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium Traditional Food Guide and Activity Book that promotes healthy lifestyle choices and nutritional habits among Alaskan children (8-10) at risk for obesity, cancer and other diseases.
