Healthy tips

Take your coffee/tea black – each teaspoon of sugar has 16 calories and one tablespoon of cream has 20 calories. If you take one of each per cup of coffee that is an extra 36 calories per cup. Over the course of a week that could be more than 1000 extra calories!

  • As parents we want our children to be healthy and to do well in school. And in the busyness of the world that we live in both of these things are becoming more difficult.  There is one thing that you can do to boost their health and school performance, and it doesn't cost a thing or require any special equipment.  Walk to school. Yup. That's it. Now while this might be a simple idea, we understand that doesn't mean it's an easy idea. If you would like some tips and ideas on how to start incorporating walking to school visit this article from Fraser Health.
  • We're always looking for fun things we can do inside, for those days where the weather is really bad or we have a small window of time before we have to leave to go somewhere. This game can be played inside or out and you can change the difficultly level so that it's fun and challenging for almost every age. And because all you need are some empty cartons/jugs and a ball, it's also an activity that's easy to put together (although depending on how much milk your family drinks it might take you a few weeks to save up enough jugs).

  • I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for new ideas for my daughters lunch. Simple things that I can make up ahead of time. One of her favorite foods is macaroni and cheese so when I saw this recipe for macaroni and cheese cupcakes I was pretty exctied! One of my favorite things about this recipe is how you can really make it your own by changing what ingredients you add to the macaroni. Leave out the stuff that your kids don't like and add in what they do. Click here to view the recipe.
