The World’s First Healthy Eating Doll

We just love bringing new and exciting products to the attention of our readers especially when they have an impactful meaning. We were so intrigued when Dessi, the founder of Good For Kids connected with us to let us know about her Kickstarter Campaign which launches on May 8th, 2018.

Without further ado, we are delighted to introduce you all to The World’s First Healthy Eating Doll and Children’s picture book, Healthy Foods Are Fun To Eat. We got the first exclusive interview with Dessi and we are excited to share it!

  1. Tell me a little bit about yourself.

I am a big dreamer and a mom to two amazing girls. I am also the Founder of GOOD FOR KIDS, a socially responsible start-up dedicated to launching products that are good for kids. Several years ago, I came up with the idea of creating a healthy eating toy and book that can inspire children to make healthy food choices. As a mom, I’ve struggled to keep my kids away from sugary junk and to get them to eat more fruits and veggies, so I decided to turn my idea into reality. Over the last year, I put an enormous amount of effort and passion into creating “The World’s First Healthy Eating Doll” and writing an adorable healthy eating picture book. I am delighted that both the toy and the book are now ready to share with the world!

  1. How is your product going to inspire healthy eating? How will it work?

The idea behind the Healthy Eating Doll and the book is to introduce children to the concept of making smart food choices. Reading and imaginative play are two of the most formative forces in childhood and they provide a great opportunity to teach children about health and good nutrition in a simple, fun and unobtrusive way.

Summer, “The World’s First Healthy Eating Doll”, is a smart magnetic doll that can easily tell which foods are good for her. She comes with a set of 20 colorful, wooden toy foods and a cute shopping bag. Healthy foods like apples, carrots, tomatoes, blueberries and broccoli stick to her mouth so she can “eat” them. If the doll is offered a lollipop however, she will not take it. The effect of tasting and touching the foods is accomplished through the use of hidden magnets, that are safely and inconspicuously embedded in the mouth and the hands of the doll. Summer can easily pick up healthy foods with her hands and bring them to her mouth. She really knows what’s good for her!

My children’s picture book “Healthy Foods Are Fun to Eat” is also a lot of fun. The book is filled with bouncy rhymes and gorgeous illustrations made entirely of fruits and veggies. It features food art created by over 10 talented artists from all around the world! We custom-printed one SUPER large copy of the book which is now the largest known healthy eating picture book in the world😊 This special, gigantic copy will travel to libraries, schools and children’s museums to spread the positive message of healthy eating.

  1. What inspired you to come up with this idea?

I am a healthy eating enthusiast and I have always looked for ways to get my children to love and appreciate wholesome foods. Unfortunately, it’s not always that easy. We live in a world filled with countless unhealthy temptations that even grown-ups like me find difficult to resist.

I came up with the idea for the healthy eating doll and book when I saw a girl sharing a real apple with her doll and saying: “Here, eat this. It’s good for you!” It was so refreshing to see how this little mommy wanted the best for her “child”. We all want our kids to grow up happy and healthy and this beautiful experience inspired me to create the educational toy and book.

  1. Tell me a little bit about your Kickstarter Campaign and how people can help.

Right now, the doll and the book are available to pre-order on Kickstarter and I would be thrilled if you could check them out. It’s a boundless sea of information out there and Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing fundraising platform (you only get funded if you reach your minimum fundraising goal). If you like the idea PLEASE support on Kickstarter and share, share, share to help me bring this project to life!

  1. Is there anything else that you would like to add for our readers about your company?

Thank you so much for asking! We are a tiny start-up and this is our first product launch. The long-term vision is to develop the company as a specialty children’s brand dedicated to bringing great products to the market, while at the same time giving back to children in need. Our GOOD FOR KIDS business-social formula for success is simple: Good Products for a Good Cause, and we hope that we can make a positive impact on raising a happy and healthy new generation.

We just love this idea and we honestly think the design of the doll and book are adorable!

Children do mimic what they see and if the doll is eating healthy, it can definitely be a great motivator for them to eat healthy too. I know that my daughter got excited when she saw the doll’s photo as I wrote this piece and started to ask if she could get one. When I explained how the doll works, she was even more excited and told me that she wants to eat healthy too. I have to say this is a great start and she doesn’t even have the doll at hand yet! Therefore, this gets our stamp of approval!

If you would like to support the Kickstarter campaign, make sure to visit them here. Also follow them along on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

We would like to give a special thank you to Dessi for giving us at Momma Braga the first exclusive interview on her great product!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Raising the Bar on Family Health

As a mom or dad, we are always concern with our families health and we always try our very best to keep everyone healthy.

This is why I was so excited to be introduced to the Toothbrush Shield by IntelliDent. In all honesty it only came to my realization that we didn’t protect our toothbrushes that we use daily from all the germs that can be found in the bathroom. I also didn’t know why I never thought of protecting our toothbrushes before but I am thrilled to know that there is a product that is available to shield the germs away.

The IntelliDent Toothbrush Shields comes in a package of 10 and each one is disposable and effective up to seven days. It is extremely easy to use and keeps the germs away. The shields also work great for every toothbrush, including for the little ones. So this is a great family friendly product!

IntelliDent is a unique product as its breathable, quick-drying fabric wicks moisture away from the bristles (or dental device) acting like a surgical mask. Compared to traditional methods for covering toothbrushes and dental devices, IntelliDent provides “Protection by Prevention.”

IntelliDent products are patented and proven. They are 99.9% effective barrier and they are laboratory tested! Benefits are that they are convenient and it’s an affordable solution. It prevents bacteria from growing or landing on your brush.

So how was this product idea born? Well, I had a chance to ask IntelliDent themselves.

After Susan’s (President of IntelliDent) husband passed away, she was faced with raising and supporting her two children on her own. She put her past business and professional acumen back to work and spent endless hours of trial and error developing a product, but it would be an important question posed by her father on a family visit that would change her life forever, “Don’t you just hate when you don’t know what to do with your toothbrush when you travel?” That was the moment it all came together that the traditional methods of caring for your toothbrush were not acceptable….Working with similar material for an unrelated product, her father’s question would be the basis of her inventing the patented IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield™.

What an empowering story of a woman who changed her life to help other families stay healthy! This story just made me love this product even more!

So why purchase the Toothbrush Shield? Reason is simple! It is a pro-active measure to keep yourself and your entire family healthy.

Did you know that your toothbrush is a lightning rod for germs, so using a toothbrush shield just makes sense!

This product can be purchased in select Walmart stores and in all Rite Aid Stores in the USA. Currently this product is not available in retail in other countries but it is available online at the following: Drugstore.com; Walmart.com; Walgreens.com.

We have been loving the toothbrush shields and each one of us has it on their toothbrushes. It is so refreshing to know that when I remove the shield from our toothbrushes, it is germ free! It is also great for travelling with!

IntelliDent states, Simple Solution For Raising The Bar on Family Health!!” I couldn’t agree more!

We give it 5 smiles out of 5!

Until next time….Happy Parenting!
