Whole Kids Foundation is dedicated to helping kids eat better—and enjoy it! Visit their website for information on how they support schools and inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness.

It’s no secret that parents like to snap photos of their kids at every turn, from their spaghetti sauce-covered smiles to their freshly washed faces on the first day of school and everything in between. And we’re glad! We love seeing these happy moments.

Whole Kids Foundation is calling all photo happy moms, pops, nanas, grandpas, aunties and uncles to participate in our Earth Month photo contest on Facebook. We want to see how your family celebrates our wonderful planet.

Inventures: Rocklin videogame company shows out of this world growth


ROCKLIN, Calif. – It may seem like a fancy frat house, but it's actually a home base for 5th Planet Games, a videogame company in Rocklin.

"We started just a group of friends that would play games together in their spare time," 5th Planet founder and Chief Executive Officer Rob Winkler explained.

That was back in 2009. Winkler and his friends launched their first game in 2010 on Facebook.

"It was kind of the Wild West," Winkler said. "We could put something out there and felt like it could do well."

And it did. Now, they're up to five games and working on a sixth one. You can play the game on their website, other gaming sites, Facebook and on mobile.

It's grown to a 70-person company. The startup raked in $10 million last year. It's pretty amazing considering the games are free to play. The company makes money when players pay for virtual goods and upgrades.
