March is National Nutrition Month. With so much going on and now that we have a lot of time home with family, I am am using this time to help my youngest make healthy choices and show her how to carefully cut fruit and vegetables to make yummy nutritious treats.
By using this time to make healthier choices, I want to help her develop good habits for make great snacks while we are in the house. Have you heard of Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK)?
Through grant funding, programmatic support, online resources, and a parent ambassador network, Action for Healthy Kids makes an impact in schools and communities with the greatest need. According to a national survey by AFHK, 76% of parents say they have improved their own habits based on something their child told them about health and well-being, which is another reason why it’s so important children learn about health and nutrition at school.
You can take action for your kids by joining the movement at www.actionforhealthykids.org/take-action

To help you bring some new healthy options to your family, I wanted to share these awesome healthy options with you.
Wondermelon Cucumber Basil from WONDER MELONTM Juice
Looking for a 100% organic cold pressed juice with all natural ingredients, no preservatives or additives, no artificial colors or flavors? Then you have have to try an ice cold Wondermelon Cucumber Basil.This juice is expertly blended with Watermelon Juice, Lemon Juice, Apple Juice, Cucumber Juice, and Basil for an incredibly refreshing juice that’s perfectly sweet with a touch of tartness and light herbaceous. I love that it is only 80 calories a bottle! It has a uniquely delish taste and is also excellent for hydration.
