Mar 18, 2011, 10:37 ET from Dasha Wellness

NEW YORK, March 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sure, you can lead your kids to nutritional food, but you can't make them eat.

Or can you? With the help of Dasha Wellness and its Absolute Wellness! Nutritional Habits and Your Nanny event on April 5, moms can fight the rising childhood obesity rates and make sure that their nannies are making healthy choices for their kids.

Dasha Wellness will partner with Absolute Best Care nanny agency to host this invitation-only event for moms. The goal is to teach skills that moms can convey to their nannies and show them how to create healthy eating habits for kids of all ages.

Nutritionist Sharon Richter will discuss how to eliminate junk food, successfully encourage kids to eat well using the rainbow method and fun recipes, and what to include in the day bag for trips to the Hamptons.

Dasha Wellness will feature Generation D, its wellness program for children. The curriculum for Generation D consists of comprehensive one-on-one classes to help children achieve four core values: motivation, respect, athleticism and teamwork, all accomplished through physical fitness.

As a special incentive, a free platinum babysitting membership valued at $400 will be given away by Absolute Best Care during this event.

The two-hour event will begin at 7 p.m. on April 5 in the landmark Galleria Building, 115 E. 57th St., Suite 520, NY, NY 10022. The media is invited to attend.

Absolute Best Care specializes in placing the most qualified baby nurses, nannies, housekeepers and babysitters and one of the company's most experienced nannies will talk to parents at the event.

Super Sprowtz is a company that encourages children to eat more nutritiously through the use of books and puppets and will provide recipes to event participants.

Babyganics will discuss safe, child-friendly homecare products at the event and will provide samples of their products.

Gift Hero, an innovative gift buying website,, caters to making purchasing gifts for children simple and easy. Gift Hero will provide attendees with a website coupon.
