21 Day Healthy Snack Challenge

Don't forget to register for the 21 Day Healthy Snack Challenge between January 11 and 24, 2016. The challenge runs between January 25 and February 14, 2016.


Counselor's Corner

They 21 Day Healthy Snack Challenge has reminded me how difficult it is to provide healthy food to kids on a regular basis. Here are a few ideas that I hope you find helpful.

1. Make one or two changes. Start small. You're human and you're busy. Pick one or two ideas that you feel are manageable and go for it!

2. Cook at home. Most fast food restaurants are very unhealthy. If you eat at home you have likely made a better choice.

3. Get your children involved in cooking. Kids are typically more excited to eat something they have helped prepare.

4. Let your children pick out healthy food and snacks at the grocery store. You might be surprised what they are willing to try if they have selected it!

5. Keep healthy foods and snacks available. When kids are truly hungry they will eat what is on hand, even if it's healthy!
