Teenage eating for joyful adulthood

About TEJA

At TEJA, our mission is to create great-tasting supplements tailored to the needs of teens while also empowering them with the knowledge and skills they need to become joyful adults. Founded in 2021 by Sriteja Kataru, TEJA grew out of his personal journey toward better health and understanding its contribution to long-term well-being. In addition to making his own nutritious foods, Sriteja recognized that many teens lack basic knowledge about nutrition, sleep, stress and exercise — all integral aspects of teenage health. That's why he created a four-part online workshop on these topics for young people looking for guidance and advice. With every bite taken or lesson learned from TEJA products or services, we are helping today’s teenagers build healthy habits that will pave the way for lifelong joyfulness!

Our Roots

Sriteja's mother, also a physician, put him in touch with her colleagues who taught him about nutrition. He used their advice to make his own protein bar, which he optimized over time. During the process, he learned a lot about nutrition and a healthy teenage lifestyle. During his research, Sriteja realized there are many people in the world who are struggling with being overweight or having issues with their diet, and thought those folks should - at the least - have access to healthy snacks.

DECA Club Project

As part of his DECA Club project, Sriteja started TEJA as a small business. TEJA has a two-part mission: To create healthy products and to educate teenagers about nutrition and the multi-dimensionality of their health.TEJA's products include protein bars, fiber energy bars, and gummies. (Sriteja used his experience with candy to create gummies with vitamins and fewer chemicals.)

TEJA's Products

TEJA's products are made with natural ingredients and no artificial sweeteners. Sriteja's friends tasted the fiber bars and gave positive feedback. One of the surprising flavor elements of the bars is tart cherries! It turns out, they break up the nuttiness of some of the other protein-dense ingredients. The bars also have some crunchiness, thanks to pumpkin seeds. Sriteja's goal is to promote a health-conscious and forward-thinking lifestyle for teenagers while promoting eating "everything in moderation."Join us on our journey to better health, one delicious bite at a time!
