PostHeaderIcon Produce For Kids – Get Healthy, Give Hope

We all buy produce for your kids. I know I do for sure. We go through so many apples and bananas, I am thinking of buying a few trees ;) For MANY years, the boys have always been told, “Fruit is Free” and they may eat it as they wish. Now of course I wouldn’t let them eat a pile of apples in a day. Every parent knows that would be a mess! But they have grown to love things like cantaloupe and watermelon as well. With all the fruits and vegetables that we buy, we can now help others by doing what we do every week.

Produce for Kids has just launched its annual Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign with major supermarket chains across the country. One in my local area is Meijer! They are helping to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

How can you get involved? Now through June 22nd, the more produce Meijer shoppers add to their shopping lists, the more hope they can give to local children. All participating fresh fruit and vegetable suppliers at Meijer stores will make a consumption-based donation to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

You can find more details about this by visiting the Produce for Kids in-store display at your local store. It features easy-to-prepare recipes, helpful materials with additional information on the campaign. You can also find links to visit more than 90 easy Ideal Meals® recipes online! The display also features characters from the popular Sprout health-focused children’s series “LazyTown” and “The Chica Show,” along with tips on healthy eating for kids. We love LazyTown! I wish I could pull off Stephanie’s pink hair as well as she does :)

Looking for some great summer recipes? Below are some fantastic delicious and nutritious Produce For Kids recipes that will help you and your family stay cool as the weather heats up! The banana fro-yo is on my list of things to try this summer! read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Protect Yourself while Christmas Shopping with #LifeLock


Seems like just yesterday we were shopping for back to school. Right after Halloween, stores are already beginning to put out Christmas stuff. It’s crazy! Whether you are an in-store shopper or an online shopper, you are at risk of identity theft. If you are like my best friend, you are sitting there thinking, “That wouldn’t happen to me. Who would want to steal my identity? I have nothing to steal!” Guess what? The day after Christmas last year, someone stole her identity. She didn’t know it for almost 2 months! You can not imagine the headache and hassles included with this. From dealing with banks, the police,  credit cards companies and so on. It took her almost 8 months to get it all cleaned up.

Before I started working with Lifelock, I wondered how people get their in formation stolen. For her, she was standing in line waiting to pay, holding her card and the person behind her wrote down her number. The only reason she knew this was because it was captured on the store security camera. One thing I always do it leave my cads behind my drivers license and my license is always backwards in my wallet. when you flip it open, everyone can see your information.

Christmas is supposed to be a fun and happy time of the year. No one wants to start the new year off fighting identity fraud. We always want the new year to be better than the last in one way or another. LifeLock is a great and affordable way to protect not only yourself, but your family as well, from identity fraud. When I say affordable, I am really not kidding, it starts at just $9 a month or $99 a year. read the rest of this entry »
