Betsy Opyt named 2015 Florida Young Mother of the Year

Betsy Opyt has been named the 2015 Florida Young Mother of the Year (awarded to those under the age of 40) by the Florida Chapter of the American Mothers Association. A Naples-based registered dietitian and personal trainer, Opyt recently launched Betsy’s Best, a new line of gourmet and all-natural nut and seed butters (peanut, almond and sunflower seed) that is currently available in all Florida Whole Foods stores, Bristol Farms, and online at BetsysBest.com.

Honorees serve as ambassadors for their states and the Association, focusing particularly on their  efforts to raise awareness of human trafficking, domestic abuse and other issues facing women worldwide.

Profiles of the honorees will be featured throughout the year at AmericanMothersBlog.com. For more information, visit AmericanMothers.org.
