Explorer's Bounty Puffed Fruit Snacks Helping Parents Battle Summer Obesity
Date:2/11/2010

MIAMI, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- When the last school bell rings in a few months, heralding summer vacation, kids will be putting down their pencils and papers in favor of video games and pool lounging. That aimless freedom, however, may come with a price. That's because children may be picking up something a lot less beneficial in those educational tools' place: extra pounds around the waistline. With a summertime stash of Explorer's Bounty's Gallop-A-Loozas line of 100% organic crunchy pure fruit snacks on hand to replace the candy and chips kids tend to gravitate toward during the summer months, parents can help nip this alarming trend in the bud.

According to a June 2008 "New York Times" article titled "School Is Out and Nutrition Takes a Hike," "Data [as reported in the 'American Journal of Public Health'] from kindergarteners and first graders found that body mass index increased two to three times as fast in summer as during the regular school year." Just two months later, "The Boston Globe" backed up this claim with an article titled "In Summer, Obesity Rules," where it pointed out, "Specialists who treat overweight children say that the summer months are emerging as a leading suspect in the epidemic of childhood obesity."

How do parents get their on-the-go youngsters to eat healthy while their best friends are grabbing potato chips and candy bars? They pack their summer lunch bags and cupboards with healthy snacks that are flavorful and fun, like Gallop-A-Loozas puffed fruit snacks from Explorer's Bounty. Available in organic taste-tempting flavors like banana, pineapple, cinnamon and plantain, Gallop-A-Loozas 100% pure fruit snacks contain only 90 calories per serving and eliminate the heart-unfriendly fat and salt while maintaining all the crunch and flavor children crave.
