NEW YORK, April 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Tiny Organics, the early childhood nutrition company today announced its collaboration with Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) to ensure all children will live healthier lives, growing up to be adults free from obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions. As part of its commitment to this shared goal, Tiny Organics is pledging $10,000 annually to support PHA's efforts. Tiny Organics will be announced as a Silver Level Sustaining Partner and participant at the PHA10: Accelerating a Healthier Future Virtual Summit, where Former First Lady Michelle Obama will also deliver remarks.
"We are honored to announce our collaboration with Partnership for a Healthier America as it solidifies Tiny Organics' commitment to ensuring that every child across the U.S. has access to the healthiest foods from the earliest days," said Tiny Organics co-founder and co-CEO, Betsy Fore. "We are proud to partner with PHA to represent the baby food category, as there is deep alignment between our organizations and greater mission."
In response to COVID-19, the Summit, which convenes on April 28, 2020, from 1 to 3 p.m. EST, pivoted from an in-person event to a digital conference and is now accepting registrants at no cost. One of the Summit's key focus areas this year is the 'Shaping Early Palates' Initiative, educating families on the importance of early palate development and giving children the opportunity to acclimate to the taste of vegetables and healthy flavors from the earliest bites.
Tiny Organics delivers 100% organic, plant-based fresh-frozen meals built on vegetables and essential fruits that are free of all Big-8 allergens with the convenience of no preparation necessary. Parents can select a meal plan carefully crafted to suit their child's developmental milestones, with textured foods designed to introduce little ones to their first 100 flavors before they turn two.
"Since 2010, PHA has proudly brought public sector organizations, nonprofit institutions, and innovative private companies together around our collaborative effort to cultivate healthier environments for America's next generation and end the childhood obesity crisis. The work we'll be focusing on with Tiny Organics to shape the palates of our youngest eaters is more important than ever," said Nancy E. Roman, President and CEO of Partnership for a Healthier America. "We are encouraged and invigorated by this partnership, which will continue enabling PHA and our partners to transform our nation's food landscape in pursuit of health equity."
In addition to its pledge to PHA, Tiny Organics launched a special edition "Michelle My Broccoli Belle" recipe as a tribute to Mrs. Obama's Let's Move! initiative and her life-changing work to get kids eating vegetables. For the month of May, 100% of proceeds from the sale of the special edition recipe will be donated to Food Bank For New York City in support of Tiny Organics' founding home in New York.
