About FNV
: FNV, a brand focused on increasing fruit and vegetable consumption and sales, is led by the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) and a collaboration of companies, celebrities, athletes and foundations. For years, fruits and veggies stood by passively as the marketing machine cranked full throttle, selling you everything from shoes to barbecues to shiny new sports cars. But now, we’ve officially joined the party. Taking over billboards and airwaves. Enlisting athletes and celebs. Shamelessly pushing peaches and sweet potatoes onto the public. FNV is here.

About PHA: The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) is devoted to working with the private sector to ensure the health of our nation’s youth by solving the childhood obesity crisis. In 2010, PHA was created in conjunction with – but independent from – First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! effort. PHA is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that is led by some of the nation’s most respected health and childhood obesity experts. PHA brings together public, private and nonprofit leaders to broker meaningful commitments and develop strategies to end childhood obesity. Most important, PHA ensures that commitments made are commitments kept by working with unbiased, third parties to monitor and publicly report on the progress our partners are making.
