WATSONVILLE, Calif., March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordic Naturals®, the leading manufacturer of fish oil in the United States, is pleased to announce its 2012 cause partnership with Healthy Child Healthy World©, the nation's leading organization dedicated to protecting children from harmful chemicals in the environment.
At the heart of this dynamic partnership is the desire to empower parents to make lifestyle choices that will ensure their children's healthy growth in an environment that allows them to thrive and flourish.
"For us, the relationship makes great sense," said Keri Marshall, Nordic Naturals Chief Medical Officer. "We are committed to delivering the world's safest, most effective omega oils, in part so that parents can provide their children with this essential omega nutrition with confidence. In recognizing the core values we share with Healthy Child Healthy World, we are excited about working together to better convey the message of proactively nurturing sound health and vitality in our children."
For Healthy Child Healthy World (Healthy Child), the alliance has keen synergy. According to Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff, Executive Director and CEO of Healthy Child, "Much like Nordic Naturals and the care they take to provide a pure product that is backed by the latest science and research, Healthy Child translates the science around environmental contaminants and empowers parents to create healthy environments where families can flourish."
Nordic Naturals' campaign "Grow, Thrive, Flourish" kicked off at Natural Products Expo West with a media breakfast featuring Sarnoff as a keynote speaker. During the morning, Nordic Naturals announced that for every bottle of Children's DHA™ 180 count and Baby's DHA 2 oz. sold at the show, it would donate $1 to Healthy Child. Additional fundraisers, promotions and events are planned throughout the year to celebrate the relationship between Nordic Naturals and Healthy Child and further their shared goals.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Healthy Child Healthy World began in 1992 after five-year-old Colette Chuda died of a rare form of non-hereditary cancer linked to environmental factors. Playing a leadership role in one of the most important public health and environmental movements of the 21st century, Healthy Child Healthy World today ignites the movement that empowers parents to protect children from harmful chemicals. Healthy Child Healthy World is a national, nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization headquartered in Los Angeles. See www.healthychild.org.
