Nearly two out of five children in the Hispanic community are overweight or obese, as compared to one in three kids overall a fact First Lady Michelle Obama pointed out last month in an address promoting MiPlato, the Spanish-language version of the MyPlate nutrition guidelines. And according to the 2010 U.S. Census, more than 35 million U.S. residents speak Spanish at home. These statistics point to the need for Spanish-language materials on nutrition education, a need that Minnesota-based Learning ZoneXpress has been filling since 2005. In fact, in a partnership with the USDA, Learning ZoneXpress was the first company in the United States to offer MiPlato posters. The company also doubled its Spanish-language offerings in 2011.
Learning ZoneXpress strives to educate all children, families and communities on eating well, says Melanie Nelson, founder and CEO of Learning ZoneXpress, the leading producer of health and nutrition education materials in the U.S. We are proud that our Spanish-language versions of MyPlate and other tools are able to meet a growing need for relevant information about nutrition for the Hispanic community.
Learning ZoneXpress carries more than 50 Spanish-language products that are perfect for the classroom, cafeteria, medical office and more, including:
