2. It's SPRING! What plans do you have for your family to get moving and eat well?

(Submit by May 31st or before).

The birds are chirping, and Spring is in full force! This means more outdoor time if you live in a northern climate. In all areas, it also means different seasonal and fresh ingredients are available. What does your family look forward to doing in the spring? How do you embrace the season and encourage movement with your kids? Do you have Spring recipes that use seasonal ingredients? Tell us how the season of Spring motivates you in different ways!

For a little inspiration on this topic, check out our free lesson titled Happy, Healthy, Active Children found in the Keeping Your Family Healthy category.


3. How do you budget for groceries?

(Submit by May 31st or before).

As the costs rise for. . .everything, how do you budget for groceries? Do you use any methods to help keep your costs down? How about store advertisements, loyalty programs, or coupons? Do you have any kind of budgeting ideas you can share with other parents? How do you use meal planning or schedules to keep your grocery budget in check? We would love to hear how you make the most of your money in the grocery checkout lane!
