Ronco Supports Consumers for Every Kid Healthy Week with Health-Conscious Springtime Recipes

Food industry innovator supports nutrition education and physical activity in American schools

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - April 24, 2017) - Household and kitchen products brand leader Ronco Brands, Inc. today announced that it will share its favorite healthy recipes in honor of Every Kid Healthy Week (April 24-28), an annual initiative that encourages schools to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for their students.

For more than 50 years, Ronco has been dedicated to creating innovative products for the kitchen that simplify family meals while encouraging healthy eating. Now, for one week, Ronco will support schools across America by providing kid-friendly and nutritious family recipes. This concept will continue the Company's tradition of educating and informing consumers, and more recently, making its internationally recognized brand and platform available for customer-ownership. An iconic mainstay in American households, the brand has long understood the importance of making great products that are not only easy to use, but also provide an array of healthy eating options.

Every day this week, Ronco's Executive Chef, Paja Sanchez, will share a different recipe that is not only healthy, but simple, convenient and delicious.

"Such a big part of encouraging children to eat nutritiously is showing them that healthy food can taste great," said Chef Paja. "These recipes are designed for just that -- proving to kids that nutritious and delicious can be synonymous." Listed below is Ronco's first recipe of the week, Homemade "Store-Bought" Rotisserie Chicken. Ronco will publish a new recipe each day this week, on the company's Twitter and Facebook pages.

"One of the driving forces behind our innovations is creating products that help families make meals that taste great, but are also good for them," said Bill Moore, CEO and President of Ronco Brands, Inc. "To recognize and support the important efforts of Every Kid Healthy Week, each day this week, Ronco will share easy-to-make and healthy recipes the whole family can enjoy."

In further support of Every Kid Healthy Week, Ronco is offering special prices on various legacy products that were invented specifically to make healthy eating easier and less time-consuming. These products include:

  • The Ronco Rotisserie -- This Ronco staple is designed to lock in flavor while excess fat and grease melts away into a drip tray, providing an easy-to-make, quick and healthy meal. The Rotisserie, often respected as the best way to roast a chicken, is 20% off this week only.
  • Turbo Dehydrator Bundle -- This Ronco favorite is big on healthy and short on time. The Turbo 5-Tray Food Dehydrator dehydrates everything from fruits to jerky in half the time. Snack masters and health-conscious parents will love this special gift set to encourage healthy after-school snacking. The Turbo Dehydrator -- which regularly retails for $69.99 -- will be available for $54.99 and includes free Herb Screens and Fruit Leather Trays. All three Ronco dehydrator models will be discounted during this initiative.

Consumers can use promotion code HEALTHYKIDS to redeem these special offers from April 24-28.

With these promotions and easy Spring-inspired recipes, Ronco continues to simplify healthy cooking and mealtime for families across the country, and make a long-term impact on kids' eating habits.

This follows Ronco's recent announcement around the company's filing of a Regulation A+ (Mini-IPO) offering with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The purpose of the filing is to allow both accredited and non-accredited potential investors, who have already become Ronco's users, fans and supporters throughout the years, the opportunity to participate in the continued growth of Ronco.
