In honor of National Nutrition Month, supermodel and actress Karolina Kurkova recently wrote a blog post for Feeding America, a non-profit organization that connects those in need to food banks nationwide. Karolina is a member of Feeding America's Entertainment Council, which also includes Mario Batali, Ben Affleck, and 50 Cent.
In her blog post, Healthy Living for All, Karolina explains why she has joined Feeding America’s efforts to make sure that healthy food and nutrition education is available to all Americans.
Below, a portion of Karolina Kurkova’s post for Feeding America:
When I moved to the United States from the Czech Republic, I was shocked to learn that access to healthy and nutritious food was not available to everyone. While the diet in my country is a little different from what’s common here, where you lived or how much money your family made did not dictate one’s ability to have a fresh, balanced, and nourishing dinner each night.
For me and my family, making healthful choices is a part of our everyday routine. I have worked hard to instill in my son, Tobin, the benefits of a balanced life. I’m lucky that I am able to offer him fresh and natural food. I also encourage him to get involved in making his experience and the world around him a more sustainable place. We plant our own herbs and have a small garden, we work to recycle as much as we can, and do our best to talk about why these choices are better than others.
