That’s why I’m glad to be one of the bloggers participating in the #LoveHealthy campaign. Led by Allison Howe, the blogger behind Don’t Panic Mom, the campaign promotes all kinds of alternative, healthy ways to celebrate the day.
Between now and February 14th, I and some of your other favorite healthy family bloggers will be sharing posts on this theme. Here’s the line-up:
- Sally @ Real Mom Nutrition
- Stacy @ School Bites
- Bri @ Red, Round, or Green
- Donna @ The Hanging Spoon
- Jill @ Just the Right Byte
- Kia @ Today I Ate a Rainbow
- Natalie & Amy @ Super Healthy Kids
- and yours truly!
My post, regarding a really sweet middle school initiative called “No One Eats Alone” will appear the day before Valentine’s Day, February 13th, and Sally’s post is already up on Real Mom Nutrition – “Three Healthy Moves for a Happy Valentine’s Day.”
If you “like” the #LoveHealthy Facebook page you can easily follow all the posts as well as enter giveaways from companies like Applegate, Kids Konserve, and Laptop Lunches. You can also follow our Pinterest board, which is full of even more fun and healthy ideas.
And, by the way, have any of you noticed that Valentine’s Day candy is coming into stores earlier and earlier every year? Check out this great post from Dana Woldow in Beyond Chron, in which she examines how the confectionary industry has turned pretty much every holiday into “candy day” — and makes sure our store shelves are always stocked with the latest seasonal sweets.
Finally, since we’re talking about the impending Valentine’s Day sugar deluge in schools, don’t forget that you can download at any time my totally free, 40-page guide on getting junk food out of your child’s classroom.
