Alina is a 9-year-old who, with inspiration from her dad, came up with the idea for a lollipop created from healthy ingredients that is just as good for you as it is to eat. Alina tells us:
"I got the idea when I went to the bank one day with my dad. The teller asked me if I wanted a sucker. My dad always told me that I should not eat candy, because sugar is terrible for your teeth. So on the car ride home I asked my dad if we could make a healthy sucker that was good for your teeth. I kept asking him, and finally we made the first batch.
Both of my parents are very encouraging, and willing to help. They volunteer suggestions on flavors, colors and packaging. My dad is my consultant. I am the idea person. I ask him questions, and he helps me find answers. My mom helps me manage my time and also gives me suggestions about marketing to moms."
