On May 20th, au pairs met for their monthly meeting at Smoothie King at the Waugh Chapel Shopping Center. The girls enjoyed a healthy and nutritious drink that is made by mixing real fruit, nutrients and proteins in a blender, otherwise known as a Smoothie. This company has a genuine commitment to helping people live healthier lives through nutrition. Since the company was founded more than 30 years ago, it has expanded to offer a wide selection of healthy snacks and high quality nutritional products. We had the privilege of having a nutritionist, Linda Bourdelaise, speak with our au pairs about healthy eating habits and offered alternative snack ideas for children. In today’s high paced busy and hectic schedules, Linda suggested some great quick and easy ideas on what to give children to eat that will not fill them with empty calories. By providing children with pre-cut carrot sticks with ranch dip or peanut butter with apple slices our children are provided with good energy alternatives rather than the quick fix of offering cookies or fries.
