March is National Nutrition Month

Did you know that March is National Nutrition Month?

Well, we all know that through the Winter we can let the cold and unfriendly outside keep us inside. As a result, by spring we notice a couple of extra pounds on the scale and the nervous pangs of beach vacations are beginning. Let's celebrate National Nutrition Month and the coming of warmer weather with some fun Barefoot Books activities that parents and kids can do together - and get healthier in the process!

Kids' Garden Card Deck - 40 Indoor and Outdoor Games and Activities!

Get outside and grow with some child-friendly fun with gardening! Kids’ Garden includes forty activities and games and an eight-page booklet that contains information on gardening tools, year-round plant care and garden safety. These step-by-step instructions are enhanced by colorful collage artwork on each double-sided card and they create a fun and easy way for budding green-thumbs to plant, investigate, learn and experiment.
Kids' Kitchen Card Deck - 40 Recipes for Parents and Kids to Enjoy together!
Step into the kitchen for some child-friendly fun with food. The forty recipes in this colorful deck are based around the five main food groups, and offer a healthy and exciting way to learn about cooking.
My Daddy is A Pretzel - Yoga fun for the Whole Family!
Twist your way into this story that introduces both yoga and professions. For example,  “My mommy is a veterinarian. Sometimes my daddy is a dog.” The next page then includes a picture of Downward Dog as well as a series of pictures displaying how to get into the pose.The nine yoga poses show how the practice of yoga relates to everyday life, and encourages readers to stretch both their bodies and their minds. There are tips about practice and preparation, yoga life, and having the right attitude.
Barefoot Books has many more wonderful selections to help us underscore the value of a healthy, engaged, active lifestyle for our children. Lastly, I will also make a donation to a local charity working toward the health and wellness of Virginia families. 10% of sales from this event will be donated, if event sales go above $500 I will donate 25% of the gross totals.
