Alina Morse is now 10, but at the age of 7 invited the candy that was served just last week at the White House Easter Egg Roll.
Her idea was to create a candy that was good for your teeth. This new candy is called Zollipops and it helps reduce the risk of tooth decay and neutralize acid found in the mouth after a meal.
“Our business is doing really good right now,” she says. “Our company sales were up 378 percent year over year and we expect to triple in our sales this year.”
Her success story is a good reminder to believe in our kids ideas, even when they say something that could seem a bit wacky like, “Dad what if candy was good for you?” Encourage them to explore, learn and create! Who knows you might have a future entrepreneur and inventor in your hands.
Her friends are her main taste testers, so you can bet Zollipops are kid approved!
