First Place Prize
Mary Johnson
San Juan Capistrano, CA
Winning Entry: Champion for Change

 

See how Mary got teens at the school where she works to eat more fruits and vegetables, and how she extends nutrition education from the classroom … to the cafeteria.

And it begins … My name is Mary Johnson and I grew up really liking sweets. As a child I was allowed to eat dessert before I ate dinner and if I wasn’t full after I had my dessert, I would eat the main course. At college I continued the road to eating unhealthy. I would start my day eating a bowl of sugar coated cereal, french toast piled high with brown sugar, a slab of butter, all topped off with what else, tons of syrup. At break instead of eating something nutritious I would find myself munching down a bag of mixed candy. Until one day I was rushed to the hospital because of high levels of sugar in my blood stream. From that that day forward I vowed to myself that I would eat better and tell others of my story. Read More

And it begins … About 10 months ago, my health had hit rock bottom. I was 215 pounds, at only 5’3” tall. I ate horribly-large meals a couple of times per day, and regular soda was my crutch.

I literally was watching the world go by me on that couch. Read More
