Every time you purchase a Bisoufoods product, we donate to charitable organizations in Metro Detroit.
Bisoufoods' overarching mission is to leverage the power of social entrepreneurship to improve Detroit’s collective wealth by increasing access to childhood nutrition education and healthy food.
Why childhood nutrition?
Well, no one can dismiss the world is facing a weight crisis. And it’s bad. Over the past 20 years, there’s been a dramatic increase of obesity in the U.S. Over a third of American adults are obese, and about one out of every 5 kids. Not just overweight – obese!
As parents, we want what’s best for our children. But when you calculate the calories consumed from the typical foods most kids eat in America, less than 5% of their total calorie intake comes from natural foods like fruits, vegetables, beans, raw nuts and seeds. There’s so much information out there, so many different diets, that we just don’t know anymore what’s best. All those “healthy”, "good for you" processed, sugar-filled snacks... and yet, is that really what Mother Nature intended us to eat?
Most obese children will become obese adults. And we all know that adult obesity is associated with a number of preventable chronic diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. An average meat-eating man stands a 50% chance of having a heart attack, while his vegetarian counterpart has less than a 15% chance. The risk of contracting breast cancer is over 3 times greater for women who eat meat daily than those who consume it less than once a week. Shocking, right?
Eating healthy won’t simply prevent diseases, it’ll help kids reach their maximum potential for health in their early, formative years.
So again, why childhood nutrition? Because eating habits established when kids are very young usually last a lifetime. We don’t want to miss this window of opportunity. It’s normal to educate kids about the dangers of drugs and smoking, but it’s not politically correct to educate them about the harm of the typical disease-causing diets and foods. We want to change that. We need healthy kids to be able to make a healthy Detroit.
