Michelle Obama launches company to promote healthy food for kids

WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama announced Wednesday that she has co-founded a company to make and sell healthier food and drinks for kids, products that she says will be less detrimental to their long-term health because of their lower sugar and higher nutrient content.

The former first lady’s work with PLEZi Nutrition was an extension of her efforts to improve child nutrition when she was in the White House.

Obama said she is a co-founder and strategic partner of PLEZi Nutrition. She will work behind the scenes on its educational and philanthropic efforts, according to aides, who stressed that

Vitamins and minerals

According to a 2017 review, some research suggests nutritional deficits may play a role in the development of ADHD symptoms. These deficits may include long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and trace
