Avocados From Mexico (AFM) kicked off the new year dedicated to health and wellness with two new partnerships that focus on avocados as a good-fat and heart-healthy fruit. The year-round campaign includes a partnership with global superstar singer, songwriter, author, and entrepreneur Thalia, centered around a "Cooking Healthy with Thalia" challenge to promote the positive impact avocados have as part of a healthy diet. AFM additionally launched an interactive digital partnership with MyFitnessPal to drive home the message that avocados are "Always Worth It."

AFM's "Cooking Healthy with Thalia" challenge will offer consumers a once in a lifetime opportunity to interact directly with Thalia for an entire month, which began on February 28. 

"I am so excited to partner with Avocados From Mexico for 'Cooking Healthy with Thalia," said Thalia. "Exercising and eating healthy have always been important to me and avocados are one of my all-time favorite fruits. I can't wait to share these delicious recipes with my fans."

Users can sign up online to kick off their "Cooking Healthy with Thalia" experience. They can then continue to engage with the program via text, email and voice messages that offer healthy lifestyle tips, avocado recipes and creative ways to enjoy avocados. Additionally, subscribers will have the opportunity to cook alongside Thalia and Chef Pati Jinich via tutorial videos featuring delicious healthy avocado recipes.

"Thalia is admired by audiences everywhere, not only for her music but also for her healthy lifestyle. Born and raised in Mexico, she epitomizes AFM's heritage, making her the perfect spokesperson for this initiative and we are thrilled to partner with her," said Ivonne Kinser, Head of Digital Marketing at Avocados From Mexico.
