Who is Vivi LeDish™? Where did she come from?

Vivi LeDish™ is a pint-size powerhouse who's about to revolutionize the way kids play with their food. Our site offers FREE, fun, interactive tools designed to give children a daily, digestible dose of wellness. We want kids to make a quick stop every day and get back out and play!™

She inspires kids ages 3-8 to learn in a healthy, active, whimsical way only Vivi can deliver. An overzealous aspiring chef, she is excited about trying new foods and being active --- and her enthusiasm is contagious! Her adventures and the lessons she learns along the way are soon to be chronicled in her daily, interactive web site and books.

Vivi Le Dish was born from a group of moms not willing to settle for anything but the best for their children. Moms with an entrepreneurial spirit who recognize that while many television and consumer groups are heading in the right direction as it relates to healthy lifestyle, none provide a tool for both parents and children to learn together how to eat and live healthfully. We want these lessons to set the tone for the rest of their lives.

Do children see content on the Mama LeDish Blog?

If the child can read, there's a chance they will find their way to the Mama LeDish blog. Our goal is to keep our content relevant and our tone positive.

Are all the recipes safe for children to make on their own?

Most recipes will be designed for both parents and child to make together. We want our recipes to get the whole family involved. They are designed to be fun, simple and educational while encouraging children to try new foods.

While we will make sure to notate areas where children should have parents do the work (i.e. cutting and use of stove or oven), we do not claim responsibility for what happens in the kitchen.

Are the recipes created by a Doctor or Nutritionist?

We are not doctors or nutritionists. We are moms trying to navigate the super-information highway of differing expert opinions and balancing it against what we learned from the way we were raised (both good and bad).

Our recipes are based on USDA Dietary Guidelines. We focus on using natural foods and limit processed foods as much as possible. We are also committed to teaching portion control and developing a healthy emotional and physical relationship with food. The bottom line is, we're in this together and we want to learn with you.

This site is great! It seems too good to be true. How can you offer this website for free? (What's the catch?)

Our site is born of a commitment from our team to develop and maintain a site that fulfills our mission and vision to entertain, educate and inspire you to Grow Your GiggleTM with Vivi LeDish™TM! Through a unique business structure and advertising dollars, we are able to achieve this goal. No catch.
