LOS ANGELES, September 6, 2005 - Dr. Richard Visser, CEO and founder of SimplyH (TM), LLC, manufacturer of the balanced nutritional drink mix, Toddler Health (TM), will speak at the Natural Products Expo East tradeshow and conference, September 15-18, 2005, at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Visser will present "Raising Healthy and Fit Kids" on Saturday, September 17, 2005 from 10 to 11 a.m. in room #147A.
Visser will share current national statistics on children's health, as well as explain how the dismal results of his own childhood obesity research led him to forge a new children¹s market category; one that provides parents with alternative low-sugar beverages for their toddlers and preschoolers.
"In order to successfully raise healthy and fit kids, parents need better access to healthier children's foods and beverages," Visser states. "Natural products industry members have the opportunity to be trailblazers in the effort to bring more natural, health-conscious children's products to market."
Natural Products Expo East, www.expoeast.com, held each fall in Washington, DC, features more than 1,700 exhibiting companies and 20,000 attendees. It has served the industry for more than 20 years by bringing the leaders in every field to educate participants on the latest trends, products and information concerning natural and organic products.
SimplyH, www.toddlerhealth.net, is based in Los Angeles, Calif., and is a division of Visser Holding Group, established in 1967. The company stands firmly on a foundation of quality by striving to offer products that contain all-natural and organically grown ingredients. SimplyH is the first manufacturer to specifically address the inadequate nutritional intake of children ages 13 months to 5 years with the development of a powdered drink mix as a healthy alternative to added-sugar juices, sodas and milk- and soy-based drinks.
