Run over and enter my giveaway for a free bottle of POMx Tea PLUS a free bottle of POM Wonderful juice if you haven't already!
I've got some great links to share with you this week! First, a couple of wonderful resources for parents.
Healthy Child, Healthy World has a wonderful site loaded with information. Their Eat Healthy section has great articles, advice from well respected nutritionists, recipes, tips, links and more. Spend some time looking around this site!
Another resource that I have just started to explore is Nourish Interactive. The site is dedicated to helping kids and families learn about nutrition in a fun way. They have a kids' section with nutrition games and more information aimed at kids, a parents' section with tips, tools and more, and an educators' section with handouts, tools, lesson plans, etc. I'm looking forward to exploring this site.
Next, snacks and recipes! What do you snack on when you travel? It can be hard to eat healthy while on the road, but with a little forethought, eating healthy while traveling can be done! Check out these road trip snack ideas from Guideposts.com. (Pssst...these snacks would also be great to pack in a lunch box!)
Do you have some fresh vegetables from your garden or farmers market lying around? Eat. Drink. Better. has a great looking meatless recipe for Classic English Bubble and Squeak with Farm Fresh Vegetables. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks so good! And with a name like "bubble and squeak," how can my kids refuse?
A while back, Kid Appeal was on an oatmeal kick. Check out her delicious recipe for Peaches N Oatmeal. YUM! What a great way to use late season peaches!
Last, a great site chocked full of fun and cheap learning activities for kids. What Do We Do All Day? consistently has creative activities for kids that help them learn about the world around them using household materials and their powers of observation. A recent favorite of mine (might be a project for this weekend here) is making an old fashioned whirligig. If you're looking for a project to do with your child or just want to pick up some good ideas, check this blog out!
Have a great weekend!
