Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) September 01, 2016
In light of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month this September, Livliga®, a patented line of portion control dinnerware, will partner with Center for Children’s Healthy Lifestyles & Nutrition (CCHLN), 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 CCHLN throughout September. Through the partnership, Livliga will also provide unique news and information surrounding healthy eating for families through an e-book, while providing recipes, games and giveaways, all in support of the fight against childhood obesity and helping children live healthier lives.
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 CCHLN, 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 the Center for Children’s Healthy Lifestyles & Nutrition 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 CCHLN we are able to make a meaningful impact in our joint effort to raise awareness and offer solutions.”
Director of The Center for Children’s Healthy Lifestyles & Nutrition, Dr. Ann Davis states, “Both The Center for Children’s Healthy Lifestyles & Nutrition and Livliga recognize the critical need to further research and focus the nation’s attention on childhood obesity, which is why we’ve partnered during National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. The month of September is a great time for us to highlight children’s health and the proven ways we can help children live healthier lives.”
The Livliga and CCHLN partnership will last through the entire month of September. For additional information on Kidliga or to find out how you can help support CCHLN, please visit, http://www.livligahome.com/Kidliga.
