Carma’s Cookery – The Show! Episode 3

Guest Dr. Keith Kantor talks about Nutrition for Kids

With obesity rising in the U.S. and P.E. being taken out of the schools, it has become critically important that parents encourage their children to eat healthfully and have an active lifestyle. In the third episode of Carma’s Cookery, I chat with Dr. Keith Kantor about nutrition for kids.

Dr. Kantor has been an advocate of natural food and healthy living for 27 years. In 1994 he was appointed CEO of Service Foods, Inc., the largest all natural food company of its kind in the United States. He has severa relevant degrees, include a Masters in Nutritional Science from Kaplan University (Summa Cum Laude), and both a Ph.D. in Nutritional Science and a Doctorate of Science degree in Naturopathic Medicine from Corllins University. He also holds undergraduate degrees in biology and chemistry.

More recently, he authored the a family-friendly book for kids and their parents called The Green Box League of Nutritious Justice.
