Venice-Based Omega3 Innovations Founder Says Back to School Should Mean Back to Healthy Eating

Teenage girls are especially delinquent about eating breakfast before going off to school in the morning. This increases their obesity risk and can lower school performance. Omega3 Innovations founder offers a healthy solution in the form of an omega 3 enriched oat fiber cookie.

I've seen studies saying that 1/3 of all teen-age girls don't eat breakfast, says Dr. Chalmers.

As school bells begin to ring across the country, Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers worries that more teenage girls will become statistics as they sacrifice a daily morning ritual: a healthy breakfast.

Numerous studies done on the effects of not eating breakfast on teenage girls show that not only is the practice unhealthy by making the participants hungrier later in the day, but that the habit actually can lead to obesity, says Chalmers, co-founder and president of Omega3 Innovations.

“I’ve seen statistics that about 1/3 of all teen-age girls don’t eat breakfast,” she says. “And other findings show that nearly one in every three adolescent girls in the United States is overweight. This is a real concern that can lead to a lifetime of obesity.”

Her solution: Make breakfast healthy, convenient, and also make it into a variety of tasty oatmeal-based cookies!

“How much easier can it be than to toss a delicious, individually-wrapped, healthy Omega Cookie into a pocket, purse or backpack,” she asks.

According to Chalmers, one cookie from her Venice-based Omega3 Innovations has the healthful benefits of seven capsules worth of omega-3 fish oil, five grams of fiber, 200% of the daily value of vitamin D and 35% of calcium.

A bonus of consuming high-doses of omega-3 fish oil – according to several other studies – is the link between eating a healthy breakfast and improved memory, higher grades and better school attendance.

“Why wouldn’t you want your children to be at their best in the classroom,” Chalmers asks.

In addition to the Omega Cookie, Omega3 Innovations also is the creator of Omega Cure, liquid omega-3 fish oil; and the Omega Passion, a healthy, frozen chocolate truffle.
