New York, New York (PRWEB) September 01, 2015
In light of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month this September, Livliga™, a patented line of portion control dinnerware, will partner with Action for Healthy Kids® (AFHK) for the second year in a row, to help combat the growing epidemic which affects approximately 12.5 million children in the United States. Livliga’s™ children’s brand, Kidliga™, will raise funds in support of this cause, with 10% of all sales being donated to AFHK throughout September. Through the partnership, Livliga will also provide unique news and information surrounding healthy eating for families through a brand new e-book, while providing recipes, games and giveaways, all in support of the fight against childhood obesity.
Through Kidliga™, which features child-friendly plates, bowls and mugs, and an award-winning children’s book entitled, Sammie & Sax in the Land of Quinoa: The Search for a Balanced Meal, kids are introduced to the concept of healthy, balanced eating. The complete product line helps to educate and engage families in an interactive experience through visually intuitive dishware and the nutritionally-focused adventure book. Kidliga is a primary tool in Livliga’s overall mission to promote children’s health. Through their partnership with AFHK, Livliga’s goal is to reach a wider audience, while educating families on just right portions and healthy eating habits.
Founder and CEO of Livliga™, and former Executive Director of the American Heart Association in Denver, CO, Sheila Kemper Dietrich states, “We are thrilled at the opportunity to partner with Action for Healthy Kids once again to help America’s kids be healthier. We recognize that this is a continual effort – results won’t be achieved overnight. In joining forces with AFHK once again, we are able to make a meaningful impact one step at a time.”
CEO of Action for Healthy Kids, Rob Bisceglie states, “Both Action for Healthy Kids and Livliga recognize the importance of being steadfast in our work to improve children’s health and nutrition, which is why we’ve partnered for a second time to shed light on these issues. We are honored to benefit from Livliga’s commitment to the cause and their efforts to raise awareness around childhood obesity.”
