LET'S TAKE PLASTIC OFF THE TABLE AND PUT HEALTHY FOOD ON THE TABLE

Our focus is to promote food security and healthy eating habits for all children.

In fact, a study in the October 2019 Pediatrics, “Food Insecurity, Health and Development in Children Under Age Four Years,” reinforces earlier findings that link food insecurity with fair or poor health and developmental risk among very young children.

Community


Ahimsa is based in Indianapolis, which is ranked worst in the nation for access to fresh foods, so even if resources are available, access to fresh food is not. The Patachou Foundation serves nutrient-dense meals that are made from scratch using local and fresh ingredients. Additionally, The Patachou Foundation teaches students how to make healthier choices through hands-on lessons that accompany these meals. Almost 80% of kids attending the schools that The Patachou Foundation serves live at or below poverty and are faced with daily food insecurity and hunger. 

Partnership

We are excited to announce our partnership with The Patachou Foundation! 1% of all sales will go to programs dedicated to serving healthy food and teaching healthy habits to children who need it the most.

You can also donate here directly or find a similar organization in your community to support.

Volunteering at a local food pantry is another way you can help in your hometown. Let's work together to eliminate childhood food insecurity. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are 9 million to 45 million cases of the flu each year. And with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to do what we can to stay healthy. To fight the flu, healthcare experts suggest that everyone get an annual flu shot. In addition to following medical guidance, you can also stay healthy by eating certain immune-boosting, antioxidant-rich foods.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, The World Health Organization and The Endocrine Society are among the many medical communities that are sounding the alarm. Synthetic (made by humans) endocrine disrupting chemicals are found in everyday products - particularly in our food system. These chemicals look like our everyday hormones that allow us to grow, develop, reproduce, balance our body’s salt and water level and many more significant functions that keep us healthy. The chemicals in products look like our natural hormones and interrupt these normal signaling pathways. This is particularly important in children as they are still growing and developing rapidly - many organ systems are not even fully developed in that first decade of life.

Last month, a fantastic NPR podcast highlighted the problem with plastic which I will summarize here: “According to a 2017 research article, more than 40% of all plastic made is packaging, which is used only once or twice before being thrown away. According to a recent analysis examining global plastic waste generation between 2010 and 2016, the United States was responsible for more plastic trash than any country in the world. That’s millions and millions of tons of plastic waste. Per capita, that boils down to nearly 300 pounds of plastic trash per person(!) per year. It’s estimated that only about 9% of plastic waste generated in the U.S. is recycled. The rest ends up in landfills, incinerators, and, unfortunately, marine environments such as rivers and oceans. And there, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, it will remain for hundreds of years.”

Getting back to school is all about learning new routines, so now is a great time to develop healthier snacking habits. Packaged snack foods can be an easy, convenient choice for after school but often provide too many added calories and not enough nutrition. Snacks don't have to be complicated!
