Founded in 2011 by Katie and Bradford Willcox, Healthy is the New Skinny (HNS) is dedicated to teaching girls about the harmful effects of media manipulation and offers a healthier, alternative perspective. HNS aims to change the game of body image and challenge beauty “norms.” It serves as a platform that promotes a healthy and body positive lifestyle through the education and empowerment of girls and women around the world.
As HNS grows, we plan to bring more content to our followers and provide them with the tools to be educated and empowered individuals. Our goal is to help girls and women to think for themselves towards a positive and healthy lifestyle.
Our blog includes information provided by an expert panel to help broaden the way we view the world around us. Covering topics from media manipulation to food science, HNS wants to help educate and bring light to topics that aren’t discussed on a daily basis.
Our blog, much like every one of us, is unique. We are not one dimensional beings. There are many aspects that make us who we are and as we expand we want to celebrate those things that make “us.” The HNS blog serves as a platform for education and empowerment through the topics of health & wellness, life & style, travel, and all things female empowerment. The HNS blog acknowledges that our followers are very different from another and come from all walks of life and we are truly grateful that we can come together for the purpose of empowerment and healthy living.
