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.
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.
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.
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.
Our audience is parents, teachers and caregivers looking for a simple, yet comprehensive approach to teaching children about nutrition and exercise.
Our commitment is to target advertisers who are kid friendly, health and nutrition related that match the mission and vision of our site.

The safety and privacy of our audience is paramount.
Parents provide the supervision and we'll do our part to comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and industry practices to protect your personal information and safety.
We will not sell or share personal information unless requested by law enforcement.
We will not hesitate to report suspicious activity or inappropriate behavior to the proper authorities (WE HAVE A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY FOR CREEPS).
This site is not intended to be a weight management tool. Our focus is aimed at teaching healthy habits one choice at a time by helping establish a healthy physical and emotional relationship with food and encouraging daily exercise.
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 LeDishTM! Through a unique business structure and advertising dollars, we are able to achieve this goal. No catch.
Congratulations! You’ve just taken the first step on a new adventure designed to help your family establish healthy habits and warm memories that will last a lifetime!
