The SlimGenics Foundation
The SlimGenics® Foundation is leading the NObesity® movement to foster healthier families and communities. We support organizations and innovative programs that work alongside us to provide nutritional education to help prevent rising childhood obesity and malnutrition in communities across the nation.
Healthy nutrition is a cornerstone of life. To strengthen the communities we serve, we provide individuals and families with relevant information about daily nutrition that leads to better health and a boost in energy.
Childhood Obesity Prevention
We sponsor programs and outreach to help solve our nation’s growing childhood obesity problem. We believe that children deserve a childhood rich in nutritious food that will lead them into a healthy adulthood.
Childhood Malnutrition Prevention and Support
Though we live in a prosperous nation, the sad reality is that many children remain hungry or under nourished. The SlimGenics Foundation sponsors programs and initiatives that take fresh approaches to tackling childhood hunger and malnutrition.
