June 2011 Newsletter 
Happy June,
Schools almost out and we've still got a full schedule of activities coming up for children and families. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming programs.

The Purple Asparagus team 

 Dine at the Signature Room in June and Support Purple Asparagus
Sig RoomWe're so grateful to have been named the Charity of the Month by the Signature Room at the 95th. The Signature Room at the 95th offers a monthly, four-course dinner menu, known as the "Signature Selection" menu. Purple Asparagus receives 10% of the sales from this menu, which is offered throughout the month of June.
In conjunction with our Charity of the Month status, the Signature Room has also graciously donated an event in their private dining rooms. On Thursday June 23, we're hosting a Friendraising breakfast from 8:30-10:30am. If you're interesting in learning more about Purple Asparagus and how you can support our important work in the schools, please RSVP to info@purpleasparagus.com.
Visit with Author and Nutritional Detective Kelly Dorfman, June 25

If you could quickly and effectively cure your child's ear infection, moodiness, or frequent colds with food instead of drugs, which option would you choose? In WHAT'S EATING YOUR CHILD? leading nutritionist Kelly Dorfman empowers Kelly Dormanparents to become Nutrition Detectives by revealing simple ways to uncover the clues behind a child's health problems and find an accurate, nutritional treatment immediately.


Refreshingly different from ordinary nutrition books, WHAT'S EATING YOUR CHILD? pairs practical, scientifically-supported advice with fascinating case studies that read like medical mysteries. Here, you'll meet the toddler whose violent mood swings and frequent colds disappeared after dairy was removed from his diet, the 8-year-old whose persistent rash was cured by a fish oil supplement, the tiny adolescent who rapidly shot up from the bottom growth percentile after taking zinc, and many other incredible stories.


Kelly Dorfman, MS, LND is a leading nutritionist with twenty-nine years of clinical experience and a mother of three. Her specialty is developing nutrition and lifestyle strategies to address complex health problems from autism to bone loss to rare genetic disorders. Physicians and other medical professionals refer cases to her for insight when traditional methods do not attain optimal results.
