Local Peas going to Washington DC!
Representing the great state of Florida, doctors and sisters Jamelah Tucker and Dorielle Price (affectionately known as "The Peas"), are going to Washington DC this month as finalists in the Small Business Association's InnovateHER contest.
EasyPeasie Veggie Blends are simply dried and ground vegetables, specially blended to give families an easy way to instantly make any meal "veggier!" The blends have a mild-flavor and can be added to any food or drink kids enjoy (applesauce, milk, oatmeal, pancakes, pastas, ketchup)! Parents and pediatricians know that kids need repeated exposures to new flavors (especially vegetable flavors) before accepting them. With EasyPeasie Veggie Blends, families have another tool in their toolbelts to get those repeated exposures in. Learn more on easypeasie.com!
SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet said of InnovateHER applicants, "We continue to recognize and support these visionaries who dare to innovate, take risks, create and transform the marketplace for the better." The InnovateHER final competition will take place on Thursday, October 26th in Washington, DC. Root for your home team "Peas" at the InnovateHER Final Challenge!
