What is Eat Better Live Better (EBLB)?
We are a 501(C)3 non-profit focused on improving child health via an array of offline and online nutrition education delivery models. Our training programs are offered in collaboration with academic, community, and health centers across the United States.
EBLB is mission-driven and results-oriented. We take great pride in the work we do everyday to improve children’s lives.
Why are we so passionate about healthy eating?
Our programs provide the skills and tools that children need to create and maintain a lifelong habit of healthy eating.
According to the USDA, in 2018 only 2% of American children maintained a healthy, nutritious diet. If this pattern continues, these children will be at significant risk for the following conditions:
- Endocrine disorders & early on-set puberty
- Cardiovascular disease
- Respiratory problems
- Skin disease
- Sleep apnea
- Tooth Decay
- Overall decrease in life-expectancy
In addition to these often chronic health issues, poor nutrition frequently leads to increased rates of depression and anxiety. It comes at no surprise that unhealthy children also suffer from bullying at school and school drop-out, and they tend to commit more petty and even serious crime.
Nutrition education not only embodies the modern mantra of preventative healthcare – reducing costs and improving long-term outcomes – but it fosters a greater sense of self-sufficiency and everyday quality of life for our children.
What is our Mission?
The mission of Eat Better Live Better is to improve nutrition for children and fight childhood obesity and other diet related health conditions.
The Legacy of EBLB:
Our non-profit was founded in South Florida by Debra Tendrich after she was inspired to use her nutritional knowledge and expertise to benefit America’s children. Starting small and local, she was eventually able to bring clinical, psychological, and behavioral expertise to the company. The EBLB team provided tested, evidence-based curriculum to children in need. EBLB was helped by a number of generous corporate and community contributions, and it continues to receive accolades from its locations served and results achieved.
As of 2019, EBLB is proudly serving many thousands of children across the United States via collaborations with academic, community and health centers and its combination of unique offline and online nutrition programs.
