Celebrity Mom Kimberly Williams-Paisley Gets Kids to Eat Their Veggies
Date:4/30/2008

Debut of Children's Book Celebrates Nationwide Elementary School Lunch

Campaign and Grant Program

OAKLAND, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Actress and mother Kimberly Williams-Paisley wants kids everywhere to eat their veggies. She's even written a book about it.

Williams-Paisley peppers the book with aspects of her own life -- from the farm, reminiscent of her Tennessee home, to the character Huck, named after her 20-month-old son, William Huckleberry.

"Now that I live on a farm, I feel so much more connected to the land and want to share the benefits this environment offers growing children," said Williams-Paisley.
