My name is Sahar Berjis, and I am the author of Lili’'s Strawberry House. My love in the area of nutrition began when I moved to Honduras for an entire year. During my time there I realized the importance of nutrition in disease prevention. After coming back to the states, I decided to dedicate my time in studying nutrition and becoming a Registered Dietitian.
With the rise of childhood obesity I dedicated many years working with children and helping them to eat better and make healthier choices.
Working with the Homeless population in NYC and Substance abuse Women I realized that most of our food habits start very early in life.
This is why it is so important to expose children to vegetables. Lili’s Strawberry house has been an inspirational book to my two girls and has helped them to try eating vegetables.
I believe that there is no wrong way to eat vegetables. The most important thing is to try them and have fun with them.
