Connections Academy is pleased to announce that Robin Miller is currently serving as a guest blogger for the virtual school’s blog, Virtual Learning Connections. Miller, widely known for her cookbooks and Food Network shows, ''Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller'' and ''Robin to the Rescue,'' offers informative tips for busy parents looking to foster healthy eating habits and attitudes -- for the whole family.
Connections Academy launched its blog, Virtual Learning Connections, in December 2009 as a resource for families to support K–12 school from home. Blog posts cover a variety of topics including: how to motivate your student, organizing study areas, establishing student schedules, and now, with advice from Robin Miller, healthy eating for busy families.
Robin Miller, who holds a masters degree in Food and Nutrition from New York University, has published nine cookbooks including her latest, ''Robin Rescues Dinner: 52 Weeks of Quick-Fix Meals, 350 Recipes, and a Realistic Plan to Get Weeknight Dinners on the Table'', published by Potter. In addition to her popular Food Network shows, ''Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller'' and ''Robin to the Rescue,'' Miller has appeared on countless television programs as a guest expert including ''The Early Show,'' ''Regis & Kelly,'' ''The View,'' and ''The Today Show.'' Read Miller’s posts about healthy lunches and the benefits of a hot breakfast.
