Learning ZoneXpress, an Owatonna-based education company has been named to the 2013 Inc. 5000, which showcases the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States. The list represents the most comprehensive look at an important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Learning ZoneXpress joins LivingSocial, Edible Arrangements, CDW and Lifelock, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
Learning ZoneXpress (LZX) is a leading source of nutrition education teaching tools. “The key to our success is our drive. We are constantly striving to create solutions for nutrition professionals. School foodservice directors look to us for educational materials around new USDA school lunch and breakfast guidelines, public health professionals come to us for MyPlate resources,” says founder and CEO Melanie Nelson. “We are committed to making their jobs easier and promoting health through education."
An important factor for Learning ZoneXpress has been keeping up with the latest research that supports nutrition and nutrition education. The USDA plays a great role in this. With the replacement of MyPyramid and announcement of MyPlate in 2011, Learning ZoneXpress was one of the first to answer the demand for educational resources. Not only did they have MyPlate materials ready to distribute 24 hours after the announcement, they had also previously developed the 1 Great Plate product line. 1 Great Plate, graphically similar look to MyPlate, is also focused on making half your plate fruit and vegetables and carefully balancing other food groups and exercise for a healthy lifestyle.
More recently, Learning ZoneXpress has helped lead the charge to promote healthy breakfasts, especially for kids, with a series of colorful posters, incentives and teaching tools to support balanced breakfasts both at school and at home. Learning ZoneXpress school resources are used in the classrooms, the lunchroom, doctor’s waiting rooms and other places where good health is taught.
