HealthBarn(R) USA Founder Shares Secrets For Healthy Eating With Rachael Ray

Antine's Hands-On, Innovative Farm Program Gets Children to Eat More


WYCKOFF, N.J., March 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Stacey Antine, MS, RD and founder of HealthBarn(R) USA was honored today on The Rachael Ray Show as part of Ray's Incredible People & Healthy Eating series sponsored by The American Egg Board ( Antine joins an all-star team of people recognized for their important contributions to helping communities lead healthier lives at the grass roots level.

"It's gratifying to be recognized by Rachael Ray's Incredible People & Healthy Eating series," said Stacey Antine, founder and CEO, HealthBarn USA, Inc. "We've seen first-hand how HealthBarn USA, the leader in proven, hands-on healthy-lifestyle education for children and families, can transform children's eating habits benefiting the whole family."

Antine went on to say that "We empower children with fundamental knowledge about healthy food and nutrition. We've found that when kids take part in growing and preparing a variety of different vegetables and other natural foods, they start asking their parents to serve more veggies and fruits at home."

Moreover, by teaching thousands of children ages 3-15, and their families, over the past three years to grow, cook, and taste a variety of fresh, seasonal foods and dishes, Antine and her team of nutritionists have identified secrets to getting children to eat vegetables. Here are some tips she shared with Rachael Ray on today's show:
-- Be a Role Model: Kids eat vegetables, often it's parents who don't;

-- Listen to Kids Opinions: If a vegetable or food gets rejected at the

table, ask why? At HealthBarn USA, we learn directly from the children

what works and what doesn't;

-- Use Positive Language: YUK! is a four letter word at HealthBarn USA.

Kids give the thumbs up or down only after trying new foods;

-- Be Creative with Food Preparation and Presentation: Kids love to cook

and eat hands-on recipes, e.g. add bell peppers to the typical

scrambled egg breakfast, wrap it up, and it becomes an exciting

breakfast burrito -- watch their faces light up;

-- Go Fresh: Serve a variety of raw seasonal vegetables because they

taste better all-natural before being altered in the cooking process.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a growing body of research shows that fruits and vegetables are critical to promoting good health. "The key to our success lies in HealthBarn USA's healthy-lifestyle philosophy rooted in common sense and fun for the whole family," said Antine. "There's a lot of focus on obesity, diabetes, and chronic disease among children and adults; but what's different about HealthBarn USA is that we are helping children and their parents learn how to read labels to make better food choices and to cook simple, nutritious and delicious meals for the whole family. Taking time to eat together as a family completes the HealthBarn picture."

HealthBarn USA, located at Abma's Farm, Wyckoff, NJ, developed the hands- on innovative curricula in conjunction with Rutgers Cooperative Extension and its esteemed advisory board. The core concept is to educate children, ages 3- 15, and their families through year-round farm programs, summer camp, and school assemblies and workshops. Information on the programs including the one-of-a-kind recipe book -- a "must-have" for parents 'in the know' -- can be obtained online at
