Choose your Honey according to their Bee social circles!

Did you know that honey bees stay within 2 to 4 miles of their hives?  Along with knowing the species, you can determine the quality of the honey.  Fortunately, Wholesome Sweeteners' honey is bred by bees living in an organic environment.  Kid Kritics thought their raw honey was the bees knees! Find out more about sweeteners you can eat when tuning into www.BetterFoodChoicesRadio.com from 12-12:30pm ET, Friday, 4/29 or listen later on iTunes.

Performance Food: Asparagus fuel your Bones, Muscles and more!

You may be surprised to know that those pointed green stalks are loaded with nutrients that feed your brain, blood, bones, heart, lungs, mouth/teeth, muscles, and skin!  The thinner they are, the more tender and flavorful they taste.  And, they take minutes to cook – steaming is best.  Season them with butter, lemon juice, a little sea salt and some sauteed garlic!  For kids, chop them finely and put them in salads or mix them with some rice.  Avoid the thicker ones as they are tough and a harder sell, especially to children.  Always remember, a little goes a long way so every bite counts!  Asparagus are in season now so enjoy them!

Grocery List: Young Turkey Roast by Plainville Farms!

   

The Kid Kritics could not get over how juicy and flavorful the Plainville Farms Young Turkey Roast was when they taste tested it.  We simply filled the cavity with an apple, orange, carrots, onions and fresh parsley.  The top was lightly coated with olive oil and sea salt.  That was it. Super easy! (We also like to add curry to the topping for a little extra flavor enrichment.)  Truth is, it is how the turkey is fed and lives that makes the nutrient difference for that moist delicious mouthful experience. If you are serving turkey this weekend, you will be overjoyed with this turkey choice as it will more than please everyone!

Healthy Kid Survey by YMCA… time to take action!

"Most kids don’t come close to getting enough exercise daily and don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables: 62% of 1,630 parents with children ages 5 to 10 say their kids eat junk food one to four days a week. Only 14% of parents say their kids eat at least five fruits and vegetables a day.These results shed light on the reasons for the childhood obesity epidemic. About a third of children in the USA are overweight, which puts them at higher risk for type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and other health problems."*

We know you care.  That's why we have the Kid Kritics program so you can serve you family healthier foods they will like!  Lean on it to up your kid's 
consumption of fruits and vegetables and to down their odds of being overweight and sick.  By the way, hundreds of YMCA children are Kid Kritics!

Come see us at the Boca Raton, FL. YMCA "Healthy Kids Day" event this Saturday! Or, find one in your neighborhood and have some fun with your  kids!
