Livliga Announces Special Partnership to Help Kids be Healthier




September is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. Livliga is pleased to announce a special partnership to raise awareness and through donations to help kids live healthier lives. Livliga, a patented line of portion control dinnerware, serveware and glassware, and Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK), an organization which makes schools healthier places so kids can live healthier lives, are partnering during the month of September in an effort to help combat the growing epidemic which effects approximately 12.5 million children in the United States. Livliga’s children’s brand, Kidliga, and AFHK will work to raise funds in support of this cause, with 10% of all Kidliga sales being donated to the organization throughout September. As a special thank you from Livliga--the first 25 to place orders of Kidliga will receive a 10% discount.

Through Kidliga, which features child-friendly plates, bowls and mugs, along with an award winning children’s book entitled, Sammie & Sax in the Land of Quinoa: The Search for a Balanced Meal and a children’s jigsaw puzzle reinforcing its theme, kids are introduced to the concept of eating well-balanced meals with appropriate portion sizes, every time they sit down for a meal or snack. The complete product line also helps to engage families in an interactive experience through visually intuitive dishware, the jigsaw puzzle, the nutritionally-focused adventure book—which features a captivating story line and recipes—and coloring pages and mazes that are available on the Kidliga website.

Founder and CEO of Livliga, Sheila Kemper Dietrich, developed the adult and children’s line out of her personal desire to embrace a healthier lifestyle, and in an effort to provide families with everyday tools to make healthy eating easier. As the former Executive of the American Heart Association in Denver, CO, Sheila has worked with leading groups and experts in the field who have shared their own concerns on the growing epidemic. “The Center for Disease Control (CDC) came out with the statement that we are now living in a generation where parents are going to outlive their children because of obesity,” said Sheila. “As a mother of three, I felt compelled to become an active participant in the fight to keep kids healthy. Through our partnership with Action For Healthy Kids, we will not only raise awareness on a growing concern that can, and I believe, will be solved, but will generate funds in support of the solution.”

Rob Bisceglie, CEO of Action for Healthy Kids adds, “we value the opportunity to partner with a brand like Kidliga, which holds ideals and values that align with ours, to provide families with the information and tools they need to lead healthier lives. National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month is a great time for us to shed light on this issue, and further promote a cause in which both AFHK and Kidliga are invested throughout the year.”

Help us spread the word and raise money for our kids to lead healthier lives. Now is a great time to buy Kidliga for birthdays, upcoming holidays and "just because" for the young kids you know and care about. As we all are aware, the greatest gift we can give is the gift of health. When you purchase Kidliga in the month of September other children will also benefit. With your support we will raise awareness and donations to help kids live healthier lives. To our children's health! Live Vibrant!
