Healthy Essentials™ and Breakfast Club of Canada have a shared passion for health and well-being. Now we also have a shared goal! Here’s how liking our Facebook page can help give Canadian children a nutritious start to their day.

We started the Healthy Essentials™ program to bring together Canadians who want to live well, keep healthy, and improve the lives of others. Whether it’s saving you money on cough medicine that gets your child through the night, or sharing a few tips to keep your home allergy-free, Healthy Essentials™ is about more than just self-improvement – it’s about improving the lives of those around you as well.

This is truer than ever as we launch our Healthy Essentials™ Canada Facebook page. We see this as an opportunity to reach beyond our membership and have a positive impact on even more Canadians – which is why we’re proud to announce our partnership with Breakfast Club of Canada.

For our Facebook launch, Johnson & Johnson Inc. will, for a period of time, donate $1 to Breakfast Club of Canada for every “like “ of the Healthy Essentials™ Canada Facebook page, up to 20,000 likes. Your likes will help “the Club” continue to serve breakfast to school children across the country each morning – leading to healthier, happier school days.

Shannon MacDonald, Vice President Communications, Public Affairs confirms the excitement that Johnson & Johnson Inc. has about this partnership; “At Johnson & Johnson, our vision is to care for Canadians and help them live healthy, vibrant lives. This includes a belief that every child should have access to a nutritious breakfast so they can learn, play and grow. That is why we are delighted to partner with Breakfast Club of Canada as they work to ensure that children from coast-to-coast enjoy a healthy start to their day, and the best opportunity for overall health and well-being.”

Since 1994, Breakfast Club of Canada has been serving morning meals in Canadian schools, driven by the belief that all children should have the opportunity to start their morning with a nutritious breakfast. The program helps to improve the academic success of participating students, and now helps close to 152,000 Canadian kids each year.

“We are very excited to be adding Johnson & Johnson Inc. to the Breakfast Club of Canada family of corporate supporters. The club is dedicated to creating positive long-lasting change through food access, education, and improved child health. Johnson & Johnson’s shared values and commitment will enable us to assist more children and communities across Canada.” - Lisa Clowery, Director of National Corporate Relations.

But there is so much more that can be done. At the conclusion of our Facebook launch campaign, we’ll continue working with the Breakfast Club of Canada to help them fulfill their goals and further enhance the health and well-being of children in Canada. Look for more initiatives in the future!
