COOPER CITY, Fla., Mar 21, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Eating for Two, Inc. today introduced the first nutrition bar created to meet the dietary needs of health-conscious pregnant, nursing and postpartum women. Mommy Munchies(TM) Nutrition Bars, designed by an active mom for active moms, contain necessary protein, calcium, folic acid and iron for a balanced and healthy pregnancy diet. As part of its initial distribution, the nutrition bars are available online at www.eatingfortwo.net and in select stores within the Florida region. Eating for Two, Inc. plans to expand its distribution throughout the United States in 2005.
Health fanatic and founder Tammy Krutchik, a Davie, Fla. mother of four children under the age of six, created Mommy Munchies to satisfy her own need as a pregnant and health-conscious woman, as well as for women in general.
"I was four months into my fourth pregnancy and preparing for a Mother's Day family function. I was struck with a sudden hunger attack, the same kind I often experienced with previous pregnancies and while nursing. I called it the "mommy munchies." Since I was trying to get a five-year-old, a three-year-old and a nine-month-old all ready to go, I didn't have the luxury of stopping to prepare a healthy meal for myself. I needed a quick, but nourishing snack to hold me over. That's when I realized that there just wasn't any food product specifically made for pregnant or nursing women."
Eating for Two, Inc. resolves that dilemma, providing a nutritious, wholesome snack that addresses the unique requirements of pregnancy and nursing. "With all the mommy myths out there, we just wanted to do something that helped women like us," Krutchik explained.
Made with high-quality, all-natural ingredients, Mommy Munchies Nutrition Bars are a delicious, convenient and healthy alternative to candy or fast food. Fortified with protein and 19 important vitamins and minerals (such as iron, calcium and folic acid), that a pregnant or nursing woman needs, these nutrition bars are initially available in four delicious flavors: Lemon Creme, Chocolate Mint, Cinnamon Bun, and Vanilla Creme.
In addition, Mommy Munchies are an excellent source of fiber, which is beneficial for digestion, and provides a full and satisfied sensation. Eating two Mommy Munchies Nutrition Bars per day provides the same vitamin and mineral content as top-selling prenatal vitamins.
From now until Mother's Day on May 8, 2005, Eating for Two, Inc. is offering free shipping on all orders of two or more boxes of Mommy Munchies when purchased at www.eatingfortwo.net.
Krutchik plans to expand the product offering to include other food items, as well as fitness and wellness tools, specifically designed to help mothers adjust physically, emotionally and psychologically to the world of motherhood. Her business partner, Angelique Swann, who is currently expecting her second child, works as a television producer of a nationally televised health series for women.
"Everyone experiences hunger pangs, but it's more difficult for pregnant women," explains Swann. "On the other hand, you know better than to gain too much weight early in pregnancy. You need to eat healthy for your baby's sake. So Mommy Munchies resolves that complex dilemma."
Before starting any dietary regimen, please consult your physician.
