International nonprofit Feed the Children and Nature Made® use partnership to promote a healthy lifestyle for children
Developing healthy habits for your children is important, especially at a young age. The first 1,000 days of life (conception through the age of two) is the most crucial time of a child’s growth and development. With poor nutrition contributing to nearly half of deaths in children under the age of five around the world, educating parents of young children on the importance of nutritious food is vital.
Feed the Children is dedicated to ensuring children receive the much-needed nutrients required for proper development. That’s why it partners with organizations and communities in the U.S. and in 10 countries around the world with the goal of providing children with vitamins, supplements, nutritious food and the resources needed to obtain these important items. Through its recent three-year partnership with Nature Made®, a leading national vitamin and supplement brand, the nonprofit strives to educate and provide a holistic health and wellness experience to families across the U.S.
“Together with Feed the Children, we want to promote the importance of good nutrition from a young age,” said Dr. Susan Hazels Mitmesser, Vice President of Science & Technology for Nature Made. “Encouraging healthy habits in early childhood not only ensures children receive the crucial nutrients they need for proper development, but also provides a foundation for a lifetime of good health.”
Many times, families living in low-income households in the U.S. have to choose between paying monthly utility and household bills or buying nutritious food. However, through a few simple tips, families can provide a brighter future for their children and help them to grow into healthy adults.
- Eat meals together: Studies have shown that eating together tends to promote more sensible eating habits. When kids eat with their parents, they are more likely to consume the USDA recommended daily amount of fruits and vegetables. Additionally, it helps them handle the stresses of daily life and tends to lower the rates of obesity in both children and adults.
- Eat a balanced breakfast: Even if a child just has an apple with a glass of milk in the morning, it makes all the difference. Choosing a breakfast that is rich in fiber and protein jumps starts the brain and makes it easier to maintain energy throughout the day, which is vital for school-age children. They can better concentrate in class and participate in physical activities without potential exhaustion.
- Make sure children have plenty of protein: Growing children need ample protein. Children who don’t get enough protein can suffer from poor concentration, joint pain and fatigue. According to a Harvard study, millions of young children don’t get enough protein due to food insecurity. Parents who provide their children with lean meats, eggs, nuts and low-fat dairy products, can greatly improve their child’s digestive system. However, our bodies can only absorb about 30 grams of protein at once, so it should be consumed it in small amounts multiple times a day.
- Get your child involved: One of the best ways to get children to play an active role in their nutrition is to involve them in the process of grocery shopping and cooking. While parents are having a balanced meal with their children, they can use this time to have an open dialogue about the importance of their health. By nature, children voice their likes and dislikes concerning food. Parents can use their opinions to craft a healthy routine for their future.
“It’s perfectly fine and actually good to indulge with your family from time to time, but it’s also important to establish good eating habits and promote a healthy lifestyle for your child’s development,” said Katie Van Es, Sr. Program Officer-Food & Nutrition and Health & Water for Feed the Children. “If you eat healthy meals with your children, they are more likely to grow up making healthier choices.”

Forget Tacos On Tuesdays. Taco Bell® Wants Fans To reBELL And Enjoy Tacos Any Day
Taco Bell fights calendar inequality so fans can boldly celebrate tacos any day of the week with Party Packs, now available for delivery from participating locations
In an open letter, Taco Bell is challenging the long standing tradition of eating tacos on a predetermined day of the week: Tuesday. Should any one day have all the taco glory just because it makes for a good hashtag? No. Times are changing and so are societal food norms. Which is why Taco Bell wants fans to reBELL against this alliteration and enjoy every taco day like it’s Tuesday. It’s time to elevate tacos, and Taco Bell Party Packs, to their rightful place as the go-to party food on their rightful day: any day.
Taco Bell is bringing this taco liberation to life in its newest campaign, “Taco reBELLion,” that encourages fans to break away from Tuesday customs and enjoy tacos with their crew any night of the week. Launching on 4/21, the :60 second spot shows three taco gangs (the Hard Shells, the Soft Shells and Los Locos) coming together to rebel against the tradition of tacos on Tuesdays and together they fight, in the form of an epic dance-off, for tacos any night.
Chief Global Brand Officer Marisa Thalberg has a rallying message for taco fans everywhere: “Of course we love that there is a day of the week dedicated to tacos, but we believe it’s time to challenge societal norms and for our fans and their friends to feel empowered to enjoy tacos without limits. When you think of tacos, you should think of getting together with friends any day, not just one day of the week.”
To further empower squads to join the taco uprising, Taco Bell is also launching a new line of reBELLious merchandise. Available on the Taco Shop, the new shirts and patches allow taco nonconformists to show off their taco pride and pledge their support for “Taco Any Day.” Because every rally needs fuel, Taco Bell is offering 15% off one Party Pack when you order online or on the app through June 8. Valid for in-store pick up only at participating locations*. It’s time to reBELL and empower groups to party with tacos from Taco Monday to Taco Sunday.
Whether fans like them crunchy, soft, or locos (Doritos® Locos Tacos to be exact), Taco Bell is breaking the monotony of at-home party food with a taco offering too good to get delivered just on Tuesdays. No matter the occasion or who’s in your crew, Taco Bell Party Packs offer the ultimate taco customization, including vegetarian and vegan options, making it the go-to food for gatherings. Feed your pack of reBELLs with any or all five Taco Bell Party Packs (Taco, Supreme® Taco, Variety, Supreme® Variety and Grande Meal) which can include Crunchy Tacos, Soft Tacos, Crunchy and/or Soft Tacos Supreme®, Doritos® Locos Tacos, Doritos® Locos Tacos Supreme® and even Bean Burritos. Be sure to visit TacoBell.com or the Grubhub app for Party Packs pricing, which varies (tax extra).

The North Face Launches a Global Effort to Make Earth Day a National Holiday
The brand will close its stores on Earth Day, launch a global petition to make Earth Day an officially recognized holiday and celebrate exploration through city takeovers across the globe
Beginning today, The North Face will activate “Explore Mode” in major cities leading up to Earth Day on Monday, April 22. Throughout the week, The North Face will partner with musicians, artists and culinary influencers to host a series of one-of-a-kind experiences that encourage people to disconnect digitally and engage with their surroundings.
The week will culminate with The North Face and 15 organizations around the world partnering to launch a global Change.org petition to make Earth Day an officially recognized holiday. The North Face will also shut down 113 stores in the US and Canada, as well as its global headquarters on Earth Day to provide opportunity for employees to disconnect and explore.
“The North Face is no stranger to exploration and this Earth Day we are proud to join our partners and fellow explorers in a global effort to make Earth Day a national holiday,” said Global General Manager of Lifestyle at The North Face, Tim Bantle. “We believe that when people take time to appreciate the Earth, they feel more connected to it and are more likely to protect it. Explore Mode urges us to unplug from our digital lives to connect in real life to the world, each other, and ourselves in the effort to move the world forward.”
The North Face partnered with influencers including singer and songwriter Ella Mai, chef Angela Dimayuga and model and activist Gabrielle Richardson to host bespoke events in New York City that will reflect the brand’s spirit and the mindset of exploration in music, food and art, along with encouraging exploration in the outdoors. These experiences will only be accessible to those who put down their phones and digital devices to be present in the moment.
Explore Mode experiences are rooted in inspiring and enabling people everywhere to unplug from their digital lives and connect in real life to the one another and the world around them.
- Tuesday, April 16: Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Ella Maijoins with vintage fashion collector and curator, Brian Procell, to throw the ultimate 90s throwback party – a mash-up of music and streetwear. Mai will pay homage to the hits and looks of past decades that inspire culture today, while Procell’s collection, including vintage looks from The North Face, is on display.
- Wednesday, April 17: World renowned chef Angela Dimayuga will go off menu and bring a select number of consumers along for the ride as she explores the many flavors of NYC that bring her inspiration.
- Thursday, April 18: Model-artist-activist Gabrielle Richardson takes over Skylight Soho to curate an art exhibition under the theme of exploration. Guests are invited to participate in a “live” piece onsite with Gabrielle and her partners through an interactive display of artistic exploration.
The brand will also activate Explore Mode in other major cities globally including London, Manchester, Munich and Paris.
“Exploration drives creativity. It is important to me to find musical inspiration from all the world’s aspects,” said Mai. “I’m excited to partner with The North Face to celebrate the many forms of exploration and show New York City what exploration means to me.”
Before closing stores, The North Face will also switch its retail locations into Explore Mode where customers can find all the resources they need to spend Earth Day off the grid, exploring the outdoors. Customers who choose to take part in The North Face exploration activities will be rewarded with an exploration kit that includes analog gear to stay present and capture memories without the need for digital devices.
The North Face is committed to social good through programs like the Explore Fund, as well as conservation efforts since its founding in 1966. For more information on Earth Day as a national holiday or to sign the petition visit:
