Posted Nov 12 2009 10:00pm
For immediate release!
I am so excited to share with you our new website and network for moms! Please read the press release below.
Sacramento, California – Cascia Talbert, mother of four and creator of the popular health blog for moms, The Healthy Moms is on a mission to promote health and wellness for families with her new website, the Healthy Moms Network. The new website will bring mom bloggers and health experts together to create meaningful discussions on how to stay healthy and fit. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 16 percent of children (over 9 million) 6-19 years old are overweight or obese -- a number that has tripled since 1980. In addition to the 16 percent of children and teens ages 6 to 19 who were overweight in 1999-2002, another 15 percent were considered at risk of becoming overweight. ("Prevalence of Overweight and Obesity Among Children and Adolescents: United States, 1999-2002"; Oct. 6, 2004) Ms. Talbert believes that by educating ourselves on obesity prevention and passing what we learn on to our children we can reverse these statistics.
Moms can visit the Healthy Moms Network and learn more about health and wellness through an interactive video chat provided by Stickam, an online forum provided by the Blog Frog and an interactive blog for all members to contribute to.
“As my blog, The Healthy Moms started growing I realized that there were a lot more moms out there with the same concerns as I do,” stated Ms. Talbert, “ We all want to feel good and be happy. We also want the best for our children and one of the greatest gifts we can give them is the gift of good health. I created the Healthy Moms Network as a way to bring these mothers together so we can all learn how to take care of ourselves and pass that on to our children.”
The Healthy Moms is an online magazine started by Ms. Talbert in 2007. Seven other moms, including a few health and fitness experts contribute to the magazine. The Healthy Moms Network will provide articles from all members on health, wellness, parenting, pregnancy and other topics concerning today's families. Health and wellness experts are also encouraged to join the network.
I hope all of you join our new website and interact with other moms like you. If you are interested in getting your blog noticed to a larger audience joining the Healthy Moms Network will allow you to do just that. Every member can contribute articles to our blog. We also have three membership levels with different benefits. Visit our site to find out what will work out best for you. I am looking forward to getting to know you better through our new interactive networking site!
