The Savvy Path

    When A Pop-Tart Fanatic Grows Up

    Founder's Note: How often will we wonder "When will I see results? Is change happening?" or "How hard should I try?"  Do you hear a tiny voice chiding, "Are we creating mini-monsters who will rebel against our high standards?  Or are we raising responsible healthy citizens?"

It isn’t always easy. I spend a lot of time reading labels to determine if the ingredient list is safe, and I feel let down when I learn that a company I once thought was eco-friendly actually isn’t.
