For most families, eating healthy during the holidays is a challenge and unfortunately, the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s often becomes a time for weight gain and over-eating.

"The holidays are a great time to re-connect with friends and family, but can be tough on waistlines and wallets." said Jason Langheier, MD, MPH. "I helped develop a weight loss program for pre-diabetic children at Boston Medical Center; we noticed that providing a Prescription for Healthy Living-- personalized recommendations for how to eat healthy on a budget-- had a dramatic impact on families. That inspired me to found Zipongo, and we're thrilled to launch our new healthy grocery savings app, to help you Health Yourself."
