Host Karyn Foley at the Calabasas Library with authors
Katie and Micah Smith,
discussing their book, "Sweets
the Witch and Her SweetSwitch".
and Micah Smith, wrote the children's book "Sweets
the Witch and Her SweetSwitch" to inspire families to choose a
healthy way of living and to help decrease the amount of sugar our
children are consuming.
In 2012, Katie was diagnosed with high grade brain cancer. At that time
there was not a lot of options to choose from. One of the few things she
could control though, was the way she lived her life going forward. The
first thing she did was to radically change the way she and her family
ate. A self confessed “junk food junkie”, she immediately cut out all
sugar, soda and junk food of any kind and switched to organic, healthy
alternatives. It was a drastic change, but she was highly motivated!
Getting the children on board with the plan was a bit more of a
challenge, so she and Micah are always trying to find inventive ways to
keep the fun but avoid so much sugar... and
Sweets the Witch was born!
Children will love the tradition of
Sweets the Witch and will look forward to their
SweetSwitch every year.
Katie and Micah
hope to inspire you to fill your children up with love and to make new
and fun traditions that will give them the best start in life.
