Our EzBites Mission
EzBites intends to provide nutritionally balanced bite size entrees to individuals of diverse backgrounds who have experienced a decline in cognitive functions such as memory loss, loss of dexterity, and certain regressive disorders due to various physical, mental, and central nervous system conditions.
EzBites LLC aims to reach out and build a stronger community through sharing our nutritional solution as well as educating families, children, adults, friends and caregivers. We hope to raise awareness in the community to be a part of one day discovering a way of eradicating the prevalent apraxia disorders that affect individuals, fight for future diseases, and foster a healthy choice.
