Fighting Childhood Obesity
Join The Fight Today!

GreenStart Group, Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides a safe, educational, health and a nutritional knowledge base for children across the nation. Our Founder, Celebrity Chef Sonita Oliver’s (CEC), goal is to challenge Childhood Obesity by teaching all children and young adults how to become their own Personal Junior Health Chefs, subsequently, they can prevent illness and overweight.



According to the CDC, childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years. The prevalence of obesity among children, aged 6- to 11-years old, increased from 6.5% in 1980 to 19.6% in 2008. The prevalence of obesity among adolescents aged 12 to 19 years increased from 5.0% to 18.1%.


Our current five-year plan includes constructing dormitories and a culinary and educational facility (GreenstartCulinary Ranch) on approximately 1,000 acres in East Texas, where we will accommodate 250 children for 30 days. A dedicated staff of leaders in Organic Health Culinary Training, Physical Education Specialists and Skilled Volunteers will be available on a year-round basis.

Our mission is to create an unforgettable experience for our young guests while they each develop a healthy lifestyle by learning new culinary skills, playing sports, horseback riding, collecting farm fresh eggs, planting fruits and vegetables, discovering creative self-expression and making new friends. Sharing will be our Greenstarteans’ objective… one group plants the seeds and the next troop will harvest.


Chef Sonita is determined to help overweight children achieve the best within themselves.
