Blendtec is pleased to announce its partnership with the American Heart Association and Healthy Kids Concepts in teaching kids the benefits of healthy, locally-grown foods through their Kids Cook with Heart program.
Blendtec, a leading manufacturer of high-end commercial and consumer blenders, donates blenders to Kids Cook with Heart—with a commitment to provide many more as the program rolls out to more schools throughout the country.
Kids Cook with Heart provides schools with programs that teach children how to prepare healthy foods in a way that’s fast, fun and easy.

Reed Beus, Blendtec chairman and CEO, reaffirmed Blendtec’s commitment to healthy eating. “We understand that the best time to prevent obesity is when eating habits are established during childhood,” he said. “We’re proud to join in these efforts to raise the next generation of strong, healthy kids.”
