Jennifer Tyler Lee is a mom and the creator of Crunch a Color™, the award winning healthy eating game that makes mealtime fun. Challenged by trying to get her kids (ages 5 and 7) to eat healthy meals, she decided to take matters into her own hands. In a few short months, Crunch a Color™ has gone from her kitchen table to nationwide stores and winner of the Dr. Toy and Parent Tested, Parent Approved awards for one of the best children’s products of 2011. She’s giving profits back to support kids nutrition, including Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, FoodCorps, and Alice Water’s Edible Schoolyard.

Her story has been featured by Jamie Oliver, ABC’s 7Live, and CTV’s CanadaAM. To hear Jennifer’s kids talk about how they turned from picky eaters to healthy eaters, watch this video.
