Can't Get Your Family to Eat Vegetables? Healthy Nation Has the Solution

Company Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Introduce Healthy, All Natural Dipping Sauces That Make Vegetables Taste Like Kids' Favorite Foods Such as Macaroni and Cheese, Pepperoni Pizza, and Ranch

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2015) - Healthy Nation, LLC today launched a Kickstarter campaign for Vegy Vida, a new line of all natural dipping sauces that will make it easier for moms and dads to get their kids to eat their veggies. Vegy Vida is a 100 percent natural, low-fat, low-calorie sauce that combines a patent-pending bitter-blocking formula with natural flavors to make vegetables taste like kids favorite foods, including macaroni and cheese, pepperoni pizza, garlic bread, taco, ranch, and bacon. The company is using crowdfunding to raise funds for nationwide distribution of its products. The campaign goal is $50,000 and supporters can back the project at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/514182986/vegy-vida-liven-up-veggies.

Creating Healthier Eaters at Early Age
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, children age 2-8 years of age should eat between one and 1.5 cups of vegetables a day. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 93 percent of children do not eat enough veggies. Vegy Vida is focused on reversing the trend with sauces that kids can dip, spread or squeeze on their vegetables. The sauces come in six delicious flavors and contain a bitter-blocking formula, along with a small amount of olive oil, to assist in the body's absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, which naturally occur in vegetables.

Liven Up Veggies
"We uncovered the science behind why kids don't like to eat their vegetables," said Heather Young, a food scientist and creator of Vegy Vida. "Kids have approximately three times the amount of taste buds as adults do, which makes bitter foods such as vegetables, taste much more bitter to a child than to an adult. Our bitter-blocking formulation reduces the bitterness so all you taste is deliciousness! Our sauces liven up veggies, and literally change the dining experience by making them taste great in a healthy and natural way."

Josh Young, co-founder and CEO of Healthy Nation, added, "We are ready to take Vegy Vida to market. We have the product developed, branding and packaging completed, and our manufacturing is in place and ready to begin. We now need the help of the Kickstarter community to get us to the next step and get Vegy Vida on grocery store shelves across the country. We are determined to make this world a healthier place by getting everyone to eat more vegetables in an enjoyable and healthy way."
