Top tips for reading labels

Are you unsure about what foods are really healthy and what foods are not? You are not alone. Grocers line the shelves with natural, organic, low carb, low fat, gluten free, and many other types of foods – it’s all so confusing. Much of what is on the front of a food package is marketing. The words natural, heart healthy, and low fat are advertising buzz words based on the latest fads. The best way to decide if a food is healthy is to practice ingredient reading.

Give the gift of an experience

I read an article by a mom who was asking people NOT to buy her kids TOYS for Christmas/Birthdays… she expressed the same sentiments I have for years now… Let’s see if anyone else has this happen…

  • Kid wants toy for Christmas/Birthday and talks about it all the time.
  • Kid opens toy for Christmas/Birthday and immediately rips it open and starts to put it together & play.
  • 2 days later kid is asking for new app on their iPad, and you suggest they go play with that awesome toy they wanted so bad… They say they don’t feel like it.
  • One week later, toy is shoved in the back of their cupboard, never to be seen again… UNTIL you do a pre-Christmas clean out the following year when said toy is then donated because the child expresses that she no longer likes it.

This year, why not make a Christmas/Birthday list filled with EXPERIENCES, not toys.
There are so many options of experiences you can use. Little Cooks Cooking Classes, a paint night, a pottery class, a date to the movies a trip to the zoo, Haarties Cable Way or a surf lesson.

How about a favourite book of yours with a personalized note of why you love it & her. THE EXPERIENCES and MEMORIES your children simply will NOT forget! This is also a great tradition to start with family members and a group of friends.

It’s simply about spending quality time making memories. I think that’s what kids really CRAVE anyway!!! TIME with the ones they love, experiences they can have with them, trying NEW and exciting things, and creating special memories that live on forever! Flip, I think that is what we ALL CRAVE!  Why not this year switch things UP!
