Who Fills Your Grocery Store Shelves and Why? Thurs. 1pm ET

supermarketshelves
Do you ever wonder who decides what brands and flavors of cereals are offered to you in your grocery store?
How do they select ones they want to sell from the hundreds made by food companies? How do they evaluate the quality, or do they? How about pasta? When you add up the number of kinds, shapes and brands, the choices filling store shelves are enough to make you dizzy. Why do they pick the ones they pick? Also, how do they stay ahead of the trends so you can find the latest and greatest when you walk in to pick up a few things. If you think about it, someone has already shopped for you, deciding what choices you will have when you shop. Who is that person and how do they decide what to put on their store shelves for you, their customer? An expert on this subject, Errol Schweizer, Senior Global Coordinator for Whole Foods Market, will be here to answer these questions for you as his job is always to be ahead of the curve in the food industry. He is known as a key influencer so don’t miss the chance to hear directly from him what’s behind the scenes in the food market world!

Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen with Errol, Co-Host Carolina and me as we explore the decision making process used by those who fill your grocery store shelves! Thursday, 1pm ET, on W4WN.com and W4CY.com.

Farmer Lee Jones, Chefs' Garden

Farmer Lee Jones, Chefs’ Garden

In a nod to the source of all great food we are starting- literally- from “the ground up”  with Farmer Lee Jones, a pioneer of the sustainable agricultural movement,  whose family’s 300-acre vegetable farm, The Chef’s Garden, in Huron, Ohio, grows specialty vegetables, herbs and micro greens shipped to restaurants around the world. We first met Lee at The James Beard Foundation Awards. You couldn’t miss his trademark overalls and red bowtie among all the tuxedo clad guests. Working alongside his dad and brother, Farmer Lee guides his dedicated team to find new ways to become more sustainable while producing the best quality ingredient for their “growing inventory.” Follow Lee:  @farmerleejones  @TheChefsGarden

Katrin-Naelapaa, Director Wines from Spain

Our second guest is Katrin Naelapaa, Director of Wines from Spain since 2001, where she oversees all marketing, advertising and promotion for Spanish wines in the U.S. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Katrin some years ago and enjoyed many an evening over a glass of sparkling Cava, a tantalizing Toro or a rich Rioja at events such as the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. Katrin’s work is significant in the wine world. Her role involves not only linking producers in Spain to importers in the U.S, through programs such as The Spanish Cellar, but also bringing greater awareness of Spanish wines to consumers through programs through dinners, programs such The Great Match: Wine & Tapas.

Supplements for Kids. YES or NO? Dr. Bob Sears. Thurs. 1pm ET on W4WN radio

supplementsforkids,yes or no

The great debate: should kids be given supplements or not? Does age make a difference? When are they necessary, if at all? If so, what and how much? Also, how do you know which ones are reliable? What foods best take the place of supplements? Some see taking vitamins as an insurance policy, especially for picky eaters. What should a mom or dad do for their babies, toddlers and school children? We are so fortunate to have Dr. Bob Sears from the Sears Pediatric family as our guest in the Family Food Experts Kitchen this week to discuss the medical facts about nutrient supplements. He will give you guidelines to follow when making your own decisions. In other words, he will educate you so you can customize what is best for your family!
Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen with Dr. Bob, co-host Carolina Jantac RD (Kid Kritics Approved)  and me to join the supplements for kids discussion! Thursday, 1pm ET, on W4WN.com and W4CY.com.
