The month of August is Kiwi Fruit Month. Talking about kiwi’s, it is also the Back to School issue for Kiwi Magazine. Kiwi Magazine is full of excellent articles which support powerful ways to help raise healthy families. What I especially appreciate about this magazine is that it does not put a lot of pressure on parents to be “perfect” when it comes getting healthy foods on the table.
- Whatever you can do to support health—whether in yourself, your family, your community, or the planet—is better than nothing.
- Buy organic foods as often as you can (especially the dirty dozen ) , but when you can’t, choose locally grown produce in season and natural brands.
- With busy schedules, we know every meal may not be healthy, so make as many balanced and nutritious meals as you can, and pat yourself on the back for each and every one.
- It’s not easy to control everything your kids eat. Allow them to try out new foods when they go to friends’ houses, and remember what they eat may be up to their friends’ parents!
We all know corporate women are busier than ever – we have work responsibilities, travel, children’s after school activities and curve balls from life in general thrown at us from all angles. Kiwi Magazine allows parents with children ages 1 month to teens to “give and take “when it comes to food, family and health. I say” “Let’s do the best we can with what we can! “
In the meantime I invite you to check out my three recipes in Kiwi’s Back To School healthy lunches under: PACK LUNCH LIKE A PRO! Send your kids back to school with these healthy and innovative ideas from registered dietitians who are also parents. By Liz Schnabolk.
