Children's health is so important and we want children to eat healthy food -- but no one is making it fun to teach them about kids nutrition and exercise.
We figure if Sesame Street® characters can teach the a-b-c's and 1-2-3's and Barney® teaches manners & imagination, then surely, Harmony, Halo and the Glow Kids can teach kid good health habits.
The Glow Kids are the nutrients we all need to be healthy:
Ozzie Oxygen, and, of course, we all need
We've done beta tests at Boys & Girls Clubs in Georgia & California and public schools in Nevada; our unique characters are proven to delight and make it fun to learn all about fitness and nutrition.
A mother in Philadelphia told us that her pre-diabetic 4-year old daughter quit eating sugar because, "Harmony doesn't like it."
And a second-grade schoolteacher who used our program said parents reported to her, "Harmony has become a household word."
Now you can introduce your little one to Harmony & Halo! When they learn to eat right, they will grow ... and Glow with good health!

We believe it should be fun to learn about the human body and good nutrition - so we created some questions that are both entertaining and engaging.
Here are some questions:
Your body is amazing. How does each of these relate to your body?

We love to read stories about Harmony, Halo and the Glow Kids to primary school children!
Our presentations for pre-school and primary students use numbers and colors as well as fun facts about foods. Kids relate to our cartoon characters of various body parts - such as Betty Brain, Larry Liver, and Sally Skin. This presentation was for 500 children at Ferguson Elementary School.
As parents, we have a duty to pass on major life skills to our children. We have to emphasize the importance of hygiene and good morals from a young age. One area that seems to be lacking, though, is financial literacy. Being financially literate as a child tends to lead to much better money habits later in life. This is important, considering the number of people living pay check to pay check in the country today. To help your kids get ahead, start teaching them financial literacy at a young age using some of these ideas. Laura Pearson presents some tips to help you get started.
This is one of the classic ways of helping to instill financial literacy in your children, as well as a good work ethic. Teach your children at a young age that working is equivalent to earning. Depending on how many chores (how much work) they do, they’ll receive an allowance. This shows them the value of a dollar, and what it means to work for something.
When you’re out shopping with your kids, involve them in the shopping decisions. This can involve teaching them lessons in buying in bulk, choosing a cheaper alternative, or foregoing something entirely. If you can help them to determine what something is worth as you’re shopping with them, you’re giving them a skill they can use for a lifetime.
Often, children ask for money or items and are given a solid “no” without any reason as to why. When you tell your kids no to something, try to turn it into a learning opportunity. Explaining why they can’t have something makes the response much more valid to them.
When your child wants something, help them set a savings goal for it. If they’re earning an allowance, go over the numbers with them, and help them understand how long it will take them to earn the item they want. Then, as they continue to work towards it, help them track their progress. Setting aside enough money to buy something you really want feels good when you can finally buy it. It might teach them another lesson, too. They may not end up wanting it in the end.
Lemonade stands were a popular option in the past for kids who wanted to make some extra money. Things have changed, though, and starting a business has a lot more working parts. Help your child set up their own small business and teach them how businesses are financed. Teach them about credit, loans, funding through friends and family, and crowdfunding, too! There are plenty of ways to secure the funds you need in today’s market.
Budgeting is a financial task that many adults have a hard time with. Often, budgeting goes undone, only to be performed when a financial crisis is around the corner. If you can teach your children how to budget at an early age, and how to stick to that budget, you’ll be able to help prepare them for adulthood.
Financial literacy isn’t a skill you can learn too early in life. Start your kids young and get them comfortable with money at a young age. They’ll end up thanking you for it in the long run.
