“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.”
- Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
The produce section is having an identity crisis. Fruits and vegetables have long been stigmatized by kids. It’s a shame because they give you a tremendous amount of nutrition—AKA, power! Mighty Munch™ is a growing collection of trading cards that is changing the way kids eat for the better. The bodily benefits of each piece of produce have been summarized into single power cards that are rewarded to kids for trying corresponding fruits and vegetables. As their palates expand, so does their collection of cards.
Bang for Your Buck
When you purchase power cards, you're not just cultivating a love of healthier food amongst your own children. You're also helping fund my mission to get these cards to kids across the country whose parents may have not been able to afford them.
The first batch of eight cards is currently for sale. Every month, a new batch will be released.

Hello! I’m Annalisa, a graphic designer and type 1 diabetic. In short, living with the disease means that my pancreas, the organ that should turn food into energy, does not work. So, I must do all the work for it. I’ve come to realize that what we choose to eat has a tremendous impact on our overall well-being. This fact, though known by many, is extremely underrated in the United States and deserves more attention.
Are you an organization that focuses on making sure our children eat more colorful meals?

This is just the beginning of Mighty Munch so I would appreciate any criticism, feedback, questions, or suggestions you might have.
