LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Stayhealthy, Inc., a healthcare technology company dedicated to addressing obesity and its consequent diseases as well as other disease and health states, today announced its partnership with Joy of Mom, a global, online community of over 2.5MM mothers. Originally prompted by the outcry for educational, engaging activities for children the need for apps that occupy restless children during the current coronavirus lock down has become even more in focus, the alliance between Stayhealthy and Joy of Mom has been created to provide blue-chip, state-of-the art resources for mothers concerned about their families' health and well-being.
"While we are living through the devastating effects of this pandemic, it is prudent to remember that obesity, and childhood obesity in particular, is also epidemic. Current trends predict that 250-300MM children worldwide will be obese by the end of the decade. Studies warn that if we don't reverse that trend, the consequences for individuals and society will be severe- the country could go bankrupt, and for the first time many children will not reach the same age as their parents," stated John Collins, Founder and CEO of Stayhealthy. "Mothers have the most influence over children's eating and exercise habits, yet modern moms are stretched very thin, which is why a support community like Joy of Mom is so important. Stayhealthy is grateful to partner our healthcare technology and expertise with such a dynamic organization."
Stayhealthy's portfolio of science-based health apps will be made available to the Joy of Mom community. The augmented reality (AR) coloring app Color Quest AR, now the #1 educational app for children in 25 countries, teaches young children healthy lifestyle habits. Stayhealthy's FDA cleared Body Fact app integrates patent-pending AR and clinically validated data to accurately measure, track, and change body fat, and the upcoming, category-leading OWL (Own Your Wellness & Living) app combines AR and artificial intelligence (AI) to support breast cancer survivors and promote healthy behaviors for cancer prevention.
"Moms are on the frontlines every day doing all we can for our families. We were overextended before this pandemic. Now it is testing all we've got. During these unprecedented times, we need the best information, tools and resources available. We don't have time for anything less. That's why we're excited and grateful to partner with Stayhealthy for their unparalleled expertise, resources, passion, and commitment to our children's health and wellbeing," said Vicki Reece, Founder and CEO of Joy of Mom.
