  3. 3. Follow Me! Healthy Parents, Healthy Kids was founded by Laura Miller a single mother who was born and raised inColumbus, Ohio. Laura had her son, Taylor, at 18 years old and has been determined to live against the stereotypeand be an excellent mother and parent. Through the years she has developed an extensive background in marketing,branding and events with the past five years focused on the parent market.Four years ago, Laura got really sick. The doctors told her that she had everything fromsevere hypoglycemia to possible lymphoma. She monitored her diet closely to try tomanage her symptoms with her son watching closely and concerned for her health.After three years the doctors finally determined that Laura had a severe gluten allergywhich was causing all of her health problems.A couple years ago, Laura was at the grocery store with her son Taylor. While shoppingshe noticed Taylor had picked up a drinkable yogurt smoothie and was reading thenutrition label. He then called down to her and said “Mom, this has 52 grams of sugar!This isn’t good for me!” and then put it back on the shelf and walked away. She thenrealized that everything that she had been going through and the example that sheset for Taylor in her diet and how it affected her body directly rubbed off on her sonand influenced him on the choices he made with his health, diet and activities.From there Follow Me! Healthy Parents, Healthy Kids was born and with strategicdynamic partnerships with active community leaders like COSI, Commit To Be Fit/10tv,The Ohio State University, Easton Town Center, Columbus Blue Jackets, ColumbusClippers, Columbus Crew and Nationwide Children’s Hospital we have started to makea strong headway has been made in the fight against childhood obesity in Central Ohio.“I am pleased to recommend Laura Miller and her work with Follow Me!
