Karen Gardner

Karen lives in Washington, DC with her husband and two children. She works for a national literacy nonprofit, is a health and fitness enthusiast, and enjoys spending time with friends. Her boys; Joseph, 3 and Ryan, 9 months old, have very different approaches to eating and varied food interests. Ryan, the baby, has usually eaten his meal before Joseph, the three-year-old, has taken his first bite. Ryan will eat most anything, Joseph is more discerning and will also change his mind frequently.

Karen will join the consumer panel discussion on Day 1.
