CC Minton is an inspirational speaker, author and role model! I had the pleasure of inviting Ms. Minton to Mendham Country Day as a featured speaker for the students. Ms. Minton provided the students with a most thoughtful program that included: Reading the students her book, engaging the students in a robust discussion on healthy eating and career opportunities and to assist the students in the preparation of a tasty and healthy snack.

It's the weekend and Dylan can't wait to share Daddy's special recipe with his friend Drew. Drew is not sure about Dylan's dad's special treat - it's a vegetable pie and he wonders if he'll like it. Dylan and Drew have questions and both learn about why the pie is good for them. After adding the new ingredients to the recipe, they are both pleasantly surprised that a vegetable pie could taste so good.
Now Dylan and Drew both love Daddy's Greek Potato Pie - it's a healthy special treat! Trying to please a picky eater? Pick up Daddy's Greek Potato Pie, and you're one step closer to doing so!
Thank you for teaching us about fruits and vegetables. We appreciate you answering our questions and listening to our comments. We loved your wonderful book, and we learned many new things. Thank you for the delicious pie!

What great nutrition presentations today for grades preK– 5. The sessions were highly interactive and allowed for much student engagement. We just thank you so very, very much. Again, the LA Spencer Nutrition Advisory Council would like to communicate our appreciation to you. Oh, by the way, after the last group had lunch, a 2nd grader came up to me and said, “Ms. James, I ate healthy today”. I said, Great, what did you eat? He gladly responded, “I ate my apple”. You made a difference today Ms. Minton!!!!

CC has provided many different types of literacy, nutrition, community services to our East Orange Child Development Corporation Head Start program. From teaching our teachers to implementing nutrition (workshop) through her book Daddy's Greek Potato Pie using nutrition literacy...to creating healthy snacks... to modeling reading said story to our parents. I recommend CC Minton for the aforementioned skills along with a barrage of other community services activities.
