Eat to Win was honored to be among the exhibitors (affiliates) participating at the National Black Child Development Institute’s (NBCDI) conference in Fort Lauderdale, FL October 6-9, 2012. This was the 42nd Annual conference for the NBCDI and is one of the country’s leading professional development gatherings for those working to improve the lives of black children and their families.
The annual conference reaches out to 2,000 individuals from around the country, who serve 2.5 million children and families in their respective communities.
"We were so thrilled to meet some of the key leaders in the country who are heavily involved in working to fight childhood obesity,” said Gary Gabel, the Co-Founder of Eat to Win.
The Southern Obesity Summit was held October 14th through the 16th in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Summit came about because leaders in the fields of education, government and healthcare feel there is a need to develop a plan that will address the obesity epidemic plaguing the South. Representatives from sixteen Southern states met to share experiences and explore issues they face in confronting obesity.
Participants were able to see how Eat to Win games can help parents and schools teach children healthier eating habits. The FuNutritional Board Game is a 2012 Parent Tested Parent Approved Award winner and helps children learn the importance of nutrition, healthy eating and physical activity. The Weight Loss Reality Game, Creative Child Magazine’s 2012 Game of the Year, is focused on the specific universe of children who are overweight and need to find an innovative way to change their eating habits. Attendees also previewed Eat to Win’s Classroom Flash Cards for Preschool through Fifth Grade, expected to be released by mid-November.
One participant, Kristen Kieren, Assistant Director, Louisiana Health Care Commission said, “This is a fantastic line of products. I look forward to passing on this information to everyone I work with.”
Jammi Roscoe, of Eat to Win summarized the Summit as “an important opportunity for those of us who care about childhood obesity to share our strategies.”
