New Kids Line To Help Combat Childhood Obesity, Celiac Disease, Autism
Dr. Praeger's Sensible Foods launched the Dr. Praeger's Kids Littles line of frozen, fun-shaped, bite-size spinach, broccoli, sweet potato and potato pancakes in time for back-to-school season. The sensible frozen food leader also is proud to announce new veggie meatballs, several new bite-size appetizers (broccoli, potato, sweet potato and spinach) and a gluten-free veggie burger.
Each of new frozen products are low in saturated fat and cholesterol, contain no artificial flavorings, colors or preservatives, are certified Kosher and are a perfect addition to any healthy lifestyle. In addition to the new gluten-free Veggie Burger, the entire Kids Line of Littles, except for the brand's Lightly Breaded Fishies, will be gluten-free, making them perfect for children with Celiac's disease or Autism.
"With childhood obesity rates at a frightening high, and more kids than ever suffering from Autism and Celiac's disease, we felt it was our duty and responsibility to encourage healthy habits in America's children," noted heart surgeon, President, CEO and Founder of Dr. Praeger's Sensible Foods, Dr. Peter Praeger. "Many of the foods on supermarket shelves that target children are high in sugar, saturated fat and offer no nutritional value. Through our Dr. Praeger's Kids Littles line and our new products, we are helping parents and schools offer more smart choices for children."
According to the Centers for Disease Control, one out of every three children in the U.S. are overweight or at risk of becoming overweight. This puts nearly 25 million kids at risk for a future riddled with diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.
