Frequently, kids need to be introduced, even up to 9 times, to a new food before theyre really accepting of it. Sometimes, too, kids may like one form over another. And adults, too, for that matterIm not a big cooked carrot fan but Id eat raw carrots all day long. So, really look at dierent ways to introduce new, healthy foods into your kids diet but also in a variety of dierent ways and dont give up if they dont like it the first time.

We could do nothing for patients with melanoma back in the early 70s. Whats been pretty incredible to have seen over a 40-year period of time is a disease that, when it was advanced, had almost no treatments available to now having genuinely meaningful treatment. We have options we never had before and thats in part because of research that was funded by the American Cancer Society.- Dr. Leonard Lichtenfeld, our Deputy Chief Medical Officer.
