NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After attracting huge audiences internationally, NUTRI VENTURES: THE QUEST FOR THE 7 KINGDOMS – the first entertainment brand that encourages healthy eating in kids ages 4 to 8 – comes to the U.S. Wednesday, Jan. 15, exclusively on Hulu Kids.
A total of 29 half-hour episodes of NUTRI VENTURES: THE QUEST FOR THE 7 KINGDOMS will be available on Hulu Kids via the Hulu Plus subscription service, with 11 episodes available to watch for free on Hulu.com. The U.S. debut of NUTRI VENTURES, which is the largest animation project ever produced in Portugal, follows the success of NUTRI VENTURES in 23 countries worldwide.
NUTRI VENTURES: THE QUEST FOR THE 7 KINGDOMS follows the daring journey of heroic Theo, Lena, Ben and Little Nina, who have never known food – only Genex 100, the synthetic creation of the nefarious and ultra-rich Alex Grand. But Theo learns the truth about real food and its importance, and sets off on a quest to discover seven kingdoms where real food remains and bring nutrition back to their world. As they journey, Theo, Lena, Ben and Little Nina – accompanied by their adorable furry friend Guga – gain Nutri-Powers, the benefit of food exaggerated as a super power, and band together to rescue the seven kingdoms and defeat Alex Grand.
Each of the seven kingdoms in NUTRI VENTURES represents one of the main food groups, and is protected by a Nutri-Guardian. But Alex Grand and his monstrous G-Squad aren’t the only obstacles Theo and his friends will face during their NUTRI VENTURES – they’ll also have to navigate through the dangerous worlds of the Kingdom of Fats, the Kingdom of Fried Food, the imposing Salt Desert and the addictive Sugar Kingdom.
As NUTRI VENTURES: THE QUEST FOR THE 7 KINGDOMS debuts on Hulu, kids can become their own Nutri-Heroes online with the Nutri Ventures Virtual World at www.nutri-ventures.com/us. Parents and educators can also visit the site to discover ways to teach children about the importance of nutrition and nutritional habits.
“Nutri Ventures has a simple mission: Engage to educate – make it fun and exciting for kids to learn about healthy eating, and to make children around the world aware that nutrition is one of the most important elements of their lives,” said Rui Lima Miranda, co-founder and managing partner of Nutri Ventures Corp., and the series’ producer. “We’re excited to be making our U.S. television debut on Hulu, and look forward to fighting together with our Nutri-Heroes to improve children’s eating habits”
