In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk to Grace Vilches, marketing coordinator at Produce for Kids. Grace shares her journey from picky eater to healthy eater. She shares advice and tips on how to get kids to try new foods and gives parents everywhere some relief that a picky child doesn’t have to grow up to be a picky adult.

As south Florida native, Grace grew up in Miami surrounded by delicious Cuban food and a love for family. When she isn’t connecting with the Produce for Kids audience on social media, you can find her watching cooking videos, catching up on her favorite Netflix series, and looking for new foodie spots to check out on Yelp.
