Kashi pledge to eat healthy

Kids in the Kitchen
Kashi foods has agreed to donate $2.00 for every pledge received to the Association of Junior League's International hallmark project, Kids in the Kitchen. The initiative began in 2006 with the goal of engaging kids in the preparation of healthy meals as a means to educate them and their parents regarding nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices. Junior Leagues in more than 200 locations provide lessons and demonstrations related to preparation of healthy meals and snacks in partnership with local community organizations, chefs and nutritionists.

Here are their suggestions:

Adding an extra fruit, veggie, or whole grain to at least one meal per day
Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are the foundations of a healthy diet, adding more to your diet is a great first step to healthier living!
Choosing to make a homemade meal once a week
Making meals from scratch using fresh ingredients is a great first step towards a healthier diet. You may not have time to cook every night, but once a week is a great start!
Shopping at a local farmer’s market once a week
The produce sold at farmer’s markets is nutritious and usually grown locally. These markets are also a great way to build community with your neighbors and discover new healthy foods!
