A few years ago my mom was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This moved me to search for a way to assist children in making better food choices by using characters as motivation. So with the help of a few friends, I created stories showing the characters overweight, with bad eating habits. Then showing them making a conscious effort in changing the way they ate along with exercise, thus living healthier lives. The music we created are fun, meaningful songs made to inspire them. In order to familiarize children with our message, we visit schools to do interactive book readings along with fun exercises to get them active. Our goal is that these efforts will assist them to make better lifestyle choices so as not to develop juvenile diabetes and other related health issues. My mom is doing great because of the changes that she made, and she really enjoys what we have created as well. Part of the proceeds we derive will be donated to the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital for diabetes research. We will make a difference one child at a time!
