Healthbarno Usa Partners With Go4thegoal Foundation To Bring Its "appetite For Life" Hands-on Workshops To Pediatric …

MERCHANTVILLE, N.J., Aug. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In its continued efforts to bring practical resources to children affected by cancer and their families, Go4theGoal Foundation[1] has formed a new partnership with HealthBarn USA[2], a proven leader of healthy-lifestyle education for children and families. The first workshop will be held on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York, Hyde Park, NY.

The hands-on workshops are based on the new book, “Appetite for Life, The Thumbs-Up, No-Yucks Guide to Getting Your Kid to Be a Great Eater[3],” by Stacey Antine, MS, RD and founder of HealthBarn USA. Each workshop will be a fun, educational experience specifically designed for the needs of children and their caregivers at major pediatric cancer hospital across the country. Cooking demonstrations with some of the 100-plus delicious, nutritious recipes from Appetite for Life will be a prominent feature of every session.

HealthBarn USA has taught more than 30,000 children to eat and live healthy. “We know from working with kids with cancer and their parents that eating healthy is an important part of their immediate medical outcomes and long-term health,” said Stacey Antine, MS, RD, founder of HealthBarn USA. “Through our partnership with Go4theGoal, we will bring our unique approach outlined in Appetite for Life to families looking for a proven, how-to lifestyle resource,” added Antine.

“As the parent of a child who battled cancer, I know first-hand how the nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices we learned from Stacey and her team have positively affected our family. Thankfully, my daughter is now healthy and has retained her good eating and lifestyle habits,” says Gina Buffa, Go4theGoal team member and mother of 11-year old Blake, a rhabdomyosarcoma survivor.

“The information that the children and their parents will acquire at the workshops need to be practiced at their homes to be successful. Appetite for Life can be used as a guide for parents to continue to keep their kids excited about eating healthy,” added Antine.


Go4theGoal Foundation[4] is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charitable organization founded in 2006 by Dr. Richard and Beth Stefanacci, soon after their oldest child was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Together with funds raised privately and it’s many unique awareness and fundraising campaigns, including National Dress 4 Pediatric Cancer Day(R)[5], Lace-Up 4 Pediatric Cancer(R)[6] and Richard’s Run(R) 5K runs,[7] Go4theGoal provides children undergoing cancer treatment and their families with financial assistance, runs fun hospital-based programs, grants special wishes and supplies state-of-the-art electronic products to children and pediatric oncology units in over 40 hospitals across the country. Since 2007, G4G has funded over $500k in innovative pediatric cancer research.


HealthBarn USA[8] is a proven leader of healthy-lifestyle education for children and families. Founded in 2005 by Stacey Antine, MS, RD, author of “Appetite for Life: The Thumbs-Up, No-Yucks Guide to Get Your Kid to be a Great Eater” published by HarperOne, HealthBarn USA has reached over 30,000 families through its year-round after-school programs, school and scout field trips, summer camps and its “Try It, You’ll Like It” school assembly nationwide.

      Begin by giving up fast food it is so full of fat, sugar, carbs, and all the wrong things for you. My daughter gave up soda and lost 20 pounds because it is loaded with sugar. Eat fish not fried 2 to 3 times a week, chicken 2 to 3 times a week skinless, lots of vegetables, and fruit and you will be getting there.

    What Would Happen If Everyone Started Living A Healthy Lifestyle Tomorrow? I’ll start the list:

    + Monsanto would go bankrupt.
    + McDonald’s and KFC would go bankrupt.
    + There would be a huge decline in heart disease and diabetes.
    + There would be a huge increase in commercial and private organic gardening.

    What else would happen if tomorrow everyone learned how to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle?
