Author of APPETITE FOR LIFE
Stacey Antine is a registered dietitian who holds a Master’s of Science in Food, Nutrition and Dietetics from New York University. Alarmed by the long list of lifestyle diseases (obesity, heart disease, diabetes, etc.) faced by children today, she founded HealthBarn(R) USA to connect children to natural foods and where they come from.
HealthBarn USA opened its first location at ABMA’s Farm & Market in Wyckoff, NJ in April 2005 and now offers its camp program at Hilltop Hanover Farm and Environmental Center, in Yorktown Heights, NY. Stacey Antine teaches a wildly popular “Try it, you’ll like it” school assembly program nationwide. Due to the success of the program, Life in Sync, an established nonprofit 501c3 organization has approved HealthBarn USA to be its first recipient to receive funding to help combat the obesity epidemic and diseases associated with weight gain. The positive impact of HealthBarn’s programs is proven effective by research conducted by Columbia University’s Teachers College, the leading nutrition education research institute.
With over 20 years of experience in the field of food and nutrition, and a successful track record of helping thousands of families change their eating habits from fast food to natural food, Stacey Antine, M.S., R.D. is an expert who parents and kids can agree on. Stacey Antine has been featured on The Rachel Ray Show, named women entrepreneur to watch by Business Week, and featured as “Our Hero” by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for her dedication to children’s health. She is also a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, where she received certification in childhood and adolescent weight management and is appointed to the Academy’s RD Communications Council for its National Kids Eat Right campaign.
