Dr. Geary also has extensive training in developing countries and the needs of children, both ongoing and especially in crisis. Trained in medical anthropology, psychology and pediatric medicine she has devoted her time to the needs of impoverished children both in the USA and abroad.

The goal is to provide relief and ultimately sustainable support for children in need.
“The story for me is that I have spent years and years as a mother and pediatrician reflecting on the impact of nutrition on children and on this country. It scares and appalls me the level of nutrition-related illness that this country supports, enables and subsequently pays for. Children deserve a better start and parents need to be supported in their efforts to try to give their kids healthy food without making it a full time job. GOOD nutrition does not have to taste bad or be “no fun”. GOOD nutrition is a lifetime commitment that is an investment in your health that must start from the very beginning and be a family commitment. Steve Jobs once said in a meeting “we don’t ship junk” referring to his phones being more expensive then others etc. I believe we don’t SHOP junk when it comes to kids nutrition: eat right, it’s an emergency!”
