Boulder, CO (I-Newswire) June 29, 2012 – ZisBoomBah.com, the leader in making food fun for families, today announced they will be partnering with five food brands to make healthy eating a joint effort. Applegate® Organic and Natural Meats, Just BARE® Chicken, Allens® Veggies and Hooray Purée® are all premium food producers that will collaborate on “True Foods We Trust” recipes, coupons, games, blog articles, videos and printables for kids. Currently reaching more than10,000 kids and parents, and expecting to grow to more than 100,000 by the end of 2012, ZisBoomBah is the future when it comes to the digital platform for healthy eating.
“We are thrilled to connect kids, parents and healthy food companies in order to make nutrition decisions at the store easier,” says Karen Laszlo, ZisBoomBah founder. For children, this is offered by way of games such as Flip It! and recipes that will create awareness of healthy products when shopping at the store with their parents. The brands will also be incorporated into quests- virtual adventures- and challenges. “Our hope is to spark more interest in today’s youth to learn what makes certain foods good choices.”
As the online resource for all summer picnics and family dinners, ZisBoomBah presents just as many opportunities for parents to get involved. In the Parents Ultimate Food Guide, recipes will be featured from each partnering brand, along with nutritional information on the products. As part of “True Foods we Trust” , the ZisBoomBah blog will feature healthy seasonal recipes incorporating ingredients from the four brands. ZisBoomBah has created specific blog articles inspired by Applegate, Just BARE, Allen’s Veggies and Hooray Puree, along with links to enticing aspects of the food companies website.
“These four brands are approved by our team of experts and we are proud to serve them to our own children.” says Karen Laszlo. In addition, all four brands provide components for a nutritionally well-rounded “Five star meal based on our Pick Chow plate . The Pick Chow! plate was awarded Grand Prize in Apps for Healthy Kids sponsored by Michele Obama’s Let’s Move & the USDA in 2010 . Food producers in this campaign also meet the ZisBoomBah 3-S standard: moderate amounts of sugar, saturated fat, and sodium.
