Your health and the health of your children is a family affair

Dianne Warren

Author / Publisher

In 1996, Dianne began offering workshops on health and nutrition at early learning conferences in Florida, but still faced an uphill battle.

Over the last 30 years Oasis Publications has attended numerous early learning and nutrition conferences around the US and Central America. National and state-wide WIC (women, infants, children), Healthy Start, Montessori, national, regional and local Head Start, Zero to Three, Childhood Obesity Prevention, Florida Early Learning Coalitions, NAEYC (national association of the education of young children), APHA (American Public Health Association), AMCHP (American Maternal and Child Health Program) and many other regional and state-wide conferences as an exhibitor and/or presenter.

As a result we have over 1 million books in use in the Americas. Our audience has grown with the introduction of prenatal health, teen pregnancy prevention and parenting books, which all still have early childhood health and fitness as their focus.

There is still much, too much, work to be done. Until we can get all aspects –national, local and personal — of our lives on the same page, the results of poor food and drink choices and inactivity will dominate our news cycles…and our own personal health stories.

Oasis Publications

Produced in the United States

Oasis Publications was established in 1996 with two goals: educating parents and children about the importance of nutrition to all our healthy habits and doing this while having fun! By using entertaining materials, messages are delivered without a heavy hand and healthy practices are supported by the games we play and books we read in everyday life.

Everyone knows how difficult it is to change bad habits. Getting kidz off to a healthy start and preventing the problems in the first place also helps other family members make the necessary life style changes to enjoy better health.

Your health and the health of your children is a family affair. Children will follow in the footsteps of their parents. Healthy choices will lead your family in the right direction.

All materials offered by Oasis Publications are produced in the United States and meet, or exceed, US Toy Safety Standards. All inks are vegetable based and environmentally friendly and every precaution is taken to minimize any choking hazard.

Ensuring our children practice healthy habits is one of the greatest gifts we can give them. Eat well, sleep well, stay active, smile and be grateful!!
