Leading premium blender manufacturer partners with American Heart Association.
Blendtec is pleased to announce its partnership with the American Heart Association and Healthy Kids Concepts in teaching kids the benefits of healthy, locally grown foods through the Kids Cook with Heart program.
Blendtec, a leading manufacturer of high-end commercial blenders and consumer blenders, has donated blenders to Kids Cook with Heart—with a commitment to provide many more as the program rolls out to more schools throughout the country.
Kids Cook with Heart offers school programs that teach children how to prepare healthy foods in a way that’s fast, fun, and easy.
Nicolla Ross, senior director of community health at the American Heart Association, expressed her appreciation for Blendtec’s partnership. “The blenders have empowered teachers and kids to go from the garden to the classroom with tasting activities and kid-friendly recipe preparation,” she said. “We are so grateful to collaborate with Healthy Kids Concepts and Blendtec to empower students to eat healthy.”
Reed Beus, Blendtec chairman and CEO, reaffirmed Blendtec’s commitment to healthy eating. “We understand that the best way to prevent obesity is to establish healthy eating habits during childhood,” he said. “We’re proud to join in these efforts to raise the next generation of strong, healthy kids.”
