Description: Join Dr. Sina McCullough and her 7-year old son, Hunter, as they walk you through simple hands-on science experiments designed to teach you about potentially harmful chemicals contained in common candies.  Help them make a “healthier” candy alternative and decide for yourself if the alternative is a better option using a product comparison.  Each participant will go home with a handful of “healthy” treats, as well as a copy of the recipe and product comparison!


Suggested Age: Adults and children 6 years and older; Children under the age of 6 are welcome to participate with parent supervision.


Admission: $5 per participant RSVP required due to the hands-on component.


About the Instructors: Dr. Sina McCullough is the author of Hands Off My Food!: How Government and Industry Have Corrupted Our Food and Easy Ways to Fight Back.  She holds a Ph.D. in Nutritional Science and a B.S. in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior, both from the University of California at Davis.  She taught Biochemistry and Bioenergetics at UC Davis before becoming the Director of Research and Development for a supplement company.  Dr. McCullough currently homeschools her two children and writes when inspired.  Her articles have been featured on Dr. Axe, Natural News, See Kids Thrive, and Neapolitan Family Magazine.  You can connect with her at


Hunter is 7-years old and loves Minecraft, playing with his friends, and conducting chemistry experiments.  When he learned about the hidden chemicals in our food that were making our family sick, Hunter decided he wanted to help other kids by providing them with “healthier” alternatives.  So, he created his own dessert line, Rattlesnake Treats: Take the Bite Out of Sweets. Now kids have a choice: “We can eat treats that have hidden chemicals, or we can eat the foods that God gave us.  Which will you choose?”
