Fight Child Hunger Down-Under This World Children’s Day


Gold Coast, QLD (November 10, 2020) — To celebrate its launch, Gold Coast kid’s nutrition start-up, Sprout Organic, is hosting a kids treasure hunt in honour of World Children’s Day to raise proceeds for Australian child-hunger relief charity, Feed the Little Children.


What: World Children’s Day Treasure Hunt

When: Saturday, November 21 – 10 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Where: Broadwater Parklands, Southport

Host: Sprout Organic

Event Details: Participate via gold coin donation to Feed the Little Children. All participants will receive a prize and there will be three major prizes. All families welcome. Participants must have adult supervision. Best suited for kids aged 4-12.


Among the founders of the new kids nutrition start-up are two well-known Gold Coast entrepreneurs, Sel Berdie, former Gold Coast Titans player, and INBA Mr. Universe winner, Billy Simmonds.


“We’re thrilled to be hosting a fun family event for a good cause”, said Berdie. “Ensuring that kids have access to nutritious food is a cause which aligns very deeply with our mission and we admire the work that Feed the Little Children does to provide emergency hunger relief for kids in Australia”.


“100% of raised funds from this event will be donated to Feed the Little Children, and we’ll also be donating some boxes of our new healthy snack bars to kids in need” Berdie added.


“It’s been a while since we’ve been able to enjoy a fun community event like this and we’re excited to bring some well-needed smiles to kids’ faces and get them out in the fresh air to make a happy memory in honour of World Children’s Day”.


Sprout Organic is the first plant-based kid’s nutrition company to launch in Australia. Advised by leading paediatricians, dietitians, and food technology experts, its first commercial product will be a healthy kids snack bar range launching this November, followed closely by a plant-based toddler, infant, and follow-on formula in 2021. The forecast for Australia’s plant-based food industry shows tremendous growth, with the CSIRO estimating the plant-based foods market to be worth more than $6 billion by 2030 positioning Australia as the third fastest growing market in the world.

About World Children’s Day
World Children’s Day was first established in 1954 as Universal Children's Day and is celebrated on 20 November* each year to promote international togetherness and improve children's welfare. November 20th is an important date as it is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Since 1990, World Children's Day also marks the anniversary of the date that the UN General Assembly adopted both the Declaration and the Convention on children's rights. World Children's Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children's rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for children.
