Mary Weiler is enthusiastic about everything in her life. Raised in a world of morning-to-evening adventures with little technology and lots of time outdoors, she has raised her own children to embrace summer camps and time away from electronic devices. Mary's love of the natural world is now balanced with her desire for the increased knowledge necessary to advance the science of nutrition. Her passion for life and activity helps fuel her efforts to develop pediatric and maternal nutrition products to optimize health for this and future generations. Her life's satisfaction lies in improving others' opportunities. Let’s get to know her. You'd describe your childhood as … Pretty idyllic! My mother set us loose in the morning to play with friends in the neighborhood and we returned for dinner. Board games and a little television was our definition of technology for entertainment. Being unplugged has its advantages. I sent my kids to camp every summer and they were forced to check their phones and computers at the door. They thanked me later for the context it provided to their life.
