And here we come…channeling MG swag

I’ve always loved a good quote and one that I’ve been thinking about is an oldie, but a goodie from Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”  Simple, powerful and so true.  Well this quote is quite timely for me, and hopefully for you also.  I’ll explain momentarily, but first allow me to introduce myself.

Hi, my name is Marissa.  I am a Mother, Certified Health Counselor, member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and formerly management out there in good old Corporate America.  One of the things that struck me on my most recent resume entry (2010-present) “Mother”, was the sheer amount of important decisions that were necessary.  Even more notable is how much time and energy it takes to investigate and gather reliable information, in order to make these decisions. So often things are not what they appear to be.  Trust experts, yes but not blindly, since each child is different and their care must be customized to suit their needs and the current situation. How great would it be to have some help when making these choices?

With this question in mind, I reflected on how to get an answer out there in an entertaining and easily accessible way that would make a world changing (enter Gandhi stage left) impact one reader at a time.  Mix my love for what is current and relevant (hip), with my passion for bringing to light what is healthy, without being caught in the food marketing/lobbying trap. Add in my zest to research and mi amore for my little one, and we’ve arrived at today…LAUNCH DAY!!!

I am super proud to bring to you this thoughtful compilation of all that is hip and healthy for you and your family.  Hip & Healthy Kids is THE spot for information on how to maximize your child’s health while keeping things fun and hip.  And let’s face it; what’s good for your child is also good for you!
