Speak- ers, workshops and demos are all focused on the theme creating a healthier diet for ourselves and our children.

She is the author of several New York Times best selling books, includ- ing "The Joy Fit Club." For more information, visit the home," Meyle says.

Eleven-year-old Brooklyn chose to become vegetarian a year and a half ago because she found meat hard to digest and she didn't like the thought of eating animals.

"I like to eat food that is good for my body so I can grow strong healthy bones and have nice skin and hair," says 9-year-old Jaiden. "I also don't get sick, hardly ever."

And even better, kids care, too. Linda Freeman is a freelance writ- er living in Marlboro.
