CommonHealth Kids is all about pursuing the great health of every child, everywhere.
All parents want it for their children: focussed brains, balanced moods, strong immune system, and happiness!
However, every day, parents battle the influence that junk food media imposes upon their precious families, turning their sweet little offspring into junk food junkies, who are repelled by good fruit and vegetables!
Author, creator and nutritional therapist, Louise Elliott, founded CommonHealth Kids to create a fun and empowering platform for inspiring parents and kids to enjoy making informed, health-giving diet choices.
Junk food marketers are predators of young peoples greatest attributes,’ explains Louise. ‘They know that young children have vivid imaginations, strong morals and are highly impressionable, and so they gear their marketing efforts to exploiting these vulnerabilities. I created ‘The Amazing Army’ nutrition programs and school show to engage the same qualities in children, but in a healthy and positive light.’
In a vivid tale of good against evil, Louise captivates children with the story of The Amazing Army who live inside everyone’s body. Captain Immune leads the Army’s battle against the Bad Bugs of illness. The story explains how The Amazing Army’s powerful energy comes from the colourful fruit and vegetables delivered by Major Energy, but is weakened by the sweets and treats of junk food temptress, Sneaky Sweetie.
Louise highlights that most parents already know that fruit and vegetables keep growing bodies and immune systems strong. And, there is enough education in the media to help them understand that sugary, processed foods compromise their child’s immunity and contribute to conditions like obesity and ADHD. However, more often than not, it’s the ‘battle of wills’ with their children that brings parents’ efforts for healthy mealtimes unstuck.
‘I developed The Amazing Army story to “cut parents a break”,’ says Louise. ‘As a mother, I know too well how draining it is trying to persuade your child to eat well; especially, when they are bombarded with manipulative advertising from junk food companies. However, if my Nutrition Programs can create in children a willing attitude and eager appetites for fruit and vegetables, then parents’ jobs of raising healthier families will become a breeze. We all need that break!’
