The Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) is a non-profit organization aimed at giving children resources and tools they need to be healthy – mind, body and spirit.
They want parents and caregivers to take action, whether you choose to participate in a program or take other measures to improve nutrition, fitness and mental health at home: Make a healthy meal together, take the dog for a walk or have a heart to heart discussion about the greatest challenge of the day.
Usually the focus is on what we can teach our children, but sometimes they prove to know a thing or two. In a recent AFHK survey 76% of parents say they have improved their own habits based on the influence of their child.
Join the movement today! Commit to Take Action for Healthy Kids by March 31, 2020 and be entered to win a healthy taste test kit to host a fun and tasty nutrition education activity for students at your child’s school. (valued at $175). There are tons of actions available with ideas to get the juices flowing.
We tried WONDER MELON™ Juices for the first time last summer and fell in love with these delicious and refreshing drinks. They feature a blend of organic cold-pressed juices including watermelon, lemon, apple and cucumber. They are low calorie and packed with vitamins with no yucky preservatives, flavors or colors added. The Watermelon Cucumber Basil is our house favorite. Just what
For breakfast and snacks alike, MadeGood has a good selection of healthy snacks made with real ethically sourced ingredients and free from all 8 allergens (so they’re perfect for school lunches).
These are truly the best snack for everyone as they’re gluten free, vegan, organic and low in sugar in addition to being allergy friendly.
We got to try the MadeGood Foods Apple Cinnamon Granola Bars which contain oat bran, which lowers bad cholesterol and keeps you full longer. When you want a bit of both, the MadeGood Foods Sweet & Salty Granola Bars are perfect. They also have crispy squares, granola minis and crispy light granola in a variety of flavors. Find them in stores at Target, Whole Foods, CVS, Kroger and more and online at Amazon, Instacart, and Walmart.
Most ‘healthy’ salad dressings I’ve found are either too high in fat or flavorless. Not so with Healthy Choice Power Dressings, which each feature vegetables and a delicious mix of herbs and spices with nothing artificial.
Available in Creamy Ranch, Creamy Italian, Garden French, and Greener Goddess all at 45 calories or less per serving!
Shipt is my new obsession. Members can use the program to have groceries delivered right to their door. We used this seamless service for the first time just last week and it was lovely to not have to do the household shopping for once. Our friendly shopper shopped at Target and communicated via text any issues with our order before driving it right to our doorstep.
If there’s anything I’ve learned as a parent is that you need to take whatever shortcuts that are available to you and this one is one I’ll be using time and time again. It’s no wonder that Shipt is the fastest growing online grocery shopping marketplace in the country since its inception in 2014. Normally a membership costs $99 a year but I have a deal for you: Pay only $49 (that’s $50 off) for a one year membership.
I’ve been eating Tribe Dessert Hummus for a while now, and have tried just about every single flavor there is except for one which I have not yet seen on shelves. They’re all delicious and totally guilt-free with only 5g of sugar per serving and no artificial preservatives. This is that better for you dessert that tastes absolutely sinful. Perfect to enjoy with fruit or all by itself!
Tribe dessert hummus flavors are free from all major all allergens including dairy and is vegan, gluten free, kosher and Non-GMO Project verified. Available in the following flavors: Dark Chocolate Hummus, Sea Salt Caramel Hummus, Cake Batter Hummus, Pea No-Nut Butter Hummus, Vanilla Bean Hummus. My favorite is the first one I tried, Dark Chocolate. It goes perfectly with fresh fruit.
The coming weeks will be challenging with everyone being under one roof. I’m so thankful for these new tools and goodies and we plan to use this down time as an opportunity to focus on what’s really important!
