Dear Interactive Nourish Visitor,
I was an ICU nurse for many years. During that time, I cared for many types of patients that had life altering experiences. But I can remember being extremely touched by the young teenagers who suffered with morbid obesity and were voluntarily having gastric bypass surgery. This is major surgery in which the stomach is physically altered. I was concerned when I realized that these patients were becoming younger and younger.
Then I received a call from a dear friend concerned that her child was diagnosed as obese. She was very concerned because the doctor told her obesity could lead to other diseases like diabetes and heart disease. She was looking for solutions. After extensive research, I discovered that her child was part of a growing population of overweight children. There certainly were no easy answers. But the one thing I heard consistently from healthcare experts was that the best solution was prevention. I wanted to use my nursing expertise and business background to promote prevention through early education. So in May 2005, I formed Interactive Nourish Inc and began developing this website.
Our website uses interactive video game technology to teach children about the importance of nutrition and exercise. I feel that children need characters and stories that will engage them during the learning process. My goal is to have every child not only learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle but think it is fun. A topic they enjoy and want to learn about.
I have to thank my wonderful husband, Michael LaBarbera, for his unwavering support. This website could not have happened without your belief in me.
Interactive Nourish has been predominantly funded by its founders because of their commitment and belief in the importance of early nutrition education. Other funding support includes clearly marked advertisements and sponsorships from private, public and nonprofit organizations. We also license out our characters to like-minded healthy oriented companies. Advertisements are only allowed on the adult pages and not on the kids section of the website.
We work with some wonderful organizations to promote healthy eating. We are proud to introduce our Partners.
