Kathryn Kendall Boucher is an editor and author, with a wealth of experience in educational and children’s publishing. She studied English Literature at the University of Sheffield, and began working in educational publishing in 2005. Having a child with numerous food allergies, Kathryn has been interested in food and nutrition for many years. She doesn’t believe in ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods; rather everything in moderation. She hopes that this book will encourage readers to eat as brightly as they can, and perhaps even to try new things.
