About Care Bears
First introduced by American Greetings in 1982 through consumer products, greeting cards, and later an animated CGI television show, Care Bears has become one of the world’s most popular and endearing children’s properties. Today, fans of all ages around the world are falling in love with these huggable bears who help kids have fun while sharing and caring, and they enjoy a robust portfolio of thousands of Care Bears licensed products at retailers globally. The Care Bears are no strangers to television screens. They first appeared in their own television specials in 1983 and 1984, and then made the leap to the big screen in 1985-87 with “The Care Bears Movie” trilogy. They also had their own television series from 1985 to 1988, which is currently available to watch on Netflix. The new Netflix Original Series “Care Bears & Cousins” continues to delight fans around the world. The brand also has a robust social media following, has more than 25 million views of new and classic videos on YouTube, and has a portfolio of popular apps for mobile devices.

Care Bears Characters + Mealtime Lessons
Nothing makes Funshine happier than going on adventures, and he makes the most of his days with fearlessness and sunny optimism. Mealtime Lesson: Have fun at mealtime! Making food fun is critical to success with a picky eater. Using fun feeding products like the EZPZ Care Bear Mats and adding cookie cutters, lollipop sticks and candy eyes will help your child become fearless with food!
Wish Bear helps make wishes come true, and although they don't always come true, making wishes and trying your best is still fun. Mealtime Lesson: Wishful thinking can lead to eating! Finding a few foods your child is interested in trying (even if they are not your favourite choices) and exploring them together can be a wish come true for a hesitant eater! When we encourage kids to have a positive + wishful outlook at mealtime, we may be surprised by all the foods they are willing to try.
Share Bear is a nurturing and generous bear, and she is happiest when she’s giving or baking. Mealtime Lesson: Share family meals! Trying new foods together as a family will influence what your children eat. The phrase “sharing is caring” is especially true around the dinner table. But this goes BOTH ways. Johnny may be more willing to try broccoli if you are ready to eat a few bites of his dino-nugget!
