NEW YORK, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On a mission to make healthy fun, Bitsy's Brainfood, the world's first "smart" snack brand for kids, launches a line of organic fruit & vegetable cereals built around its core principles, that healthy bodies and healthy minds are connected and learning to "eat smart" should be fun. Available in three tasty flavor combinations: Fruit & Veggie 1,2,3, Carrot Raisin Crunch, and Banana Squash Squares – the new line offers families a smarter cereal alternative made from real, organic ingredients that kids want and need and packaged in way that's educational and fun. Bitsy's Brainfood cereals are now available in retailers throughout the U.S. and at major online retailers for a suggested retail price of $4.99- $5.99.
Created by Alexandra Buckley Voris and Maggie Jones Patton, two moms who share a passion for kids' health, Bitsy's cereals are made with real fruits and vegetables. All three varieties are fortified with 12 essential vitamins and minerals to support healthy development, including Vitamins A, C, and D, plus Zinc, which helps brain and body cells to develop and grow, Iron, which helps deliver oxygen to the brain and body, and Vitamin B12, which can help support the nervous system and brain function. Additionally, the cereals are certified organic, non-GMO, Kosher, and Vegan. The Banana Squash Squares variety is gluten-free.
"Bitsy's Brainfood was developed to show kids and their parents that 'healthy' can be fun and delicious. We're all about innovating with foods that families eat every day, like cereal. We love making foods better, by baking in organic fruits and vegetables, and calling out those ingredients front and center. We believe traditional food has done a disservice to kids, teaching them from an early age that the only 'yummy' flavors are chocolate or vanilla. Why not 'Banana Squash'? You won't find us hiding any carrots around here," said co-founder Maggie Jones Patton.
"As parents, we understand the practical challenge of getting everyone out the door in the morning, not to mention pulling that off while managing to nurture kids' bodies and minds," added co-founder Alexandra Buckley Voris. "It's one of those things, though—as parents, our lives are busy, so we thought a lot about how to turn everyday experiences, like breakfast, into teachable moments. Learning about what kinds of foods fuel us is so central to our ability to learn and play!"
Bitsy's Brainfood cereal boxes include fun brain games, and its website teaches kids about nutrition and how to "eat smart" with interactive games and characters designed to promote good health. It also features resources for parents and nutritious recipes for the whole family.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
