Excel, Soar and Thrive -The Natural Way!
Childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes, attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are all terms that are associated all too often with kids today. From preschoolers to teenagers, physical and behavioral health issues in our nation's children are skyrocketing out of control. How we eat, directly affects our concentration, energy level, metabolism, and resistance to disease. Even academic achievers and active athletes feel the strain of a busy and demanding school week, and what they eat affects how they perform. So whether your child appears to be the epitome of good health or is challenged with one or more health concerns, here are a few tips for helping our kids excel in school, soar in health and thrive in life – Naturally!
Believe it or not—there ARE healthy snacks
I know this sounds as far-fetched as the tooth fairy, but I know two companies who not only are dedicated to making natural goodness taste great, their products have passed the “Kid Taste Test.” Having an 8-year-old son means often having a house full of kids. So I KNOW the struggle between providing “nutritious snacks” and “snacks kids will eat.” I realize that our son Ridge has grown up on a diet full of high fiber, less sugar and less fat than many kids, so his palate is probably easier to please with “healthy snacks” than most. However, when the neighborhood kids and cousins show up in our kitchen for snack time, not a one turns down a triple chocolate VitaTop muffin from Vitalicious™ or a handful of Wild Berry Mix from Eden Foods!
Thanks to both of these companies, the snack balancing act has gotten tons easier for parents. Vitalicious makes the most amazingly delicious single-serving VitaTops (muffin tops) and VitaBrownies. Each 100-calorie, preservative-free serving has 5-6 grams of fiber, 2-5 grams of protein and loads of vitamins and minerals.
And if you know me at all, you’ve heard me say more than once, “Eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal or snack.” I realize that this can sometimes be a struggle with kids, but, ta dah…. Eden has magically answered this with their delicious nut and dried fruit mixes. Dried blueberries (my son’s all-time favorite!) cranberries, cherries, pistachios, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds … YUM. Trust me, kids love ‘em!
Adding these healthy snack options to your pantry (not JUST for kids!) is as easy as a “3 clicks.” Use the links here and go directly to their online shopping carts to order your healthy snacks today – all with special discount offers using the “Zonya” discount code!!
