Last month, I mentioned that I had teamed up with Champions for Kids and Disney as part of the stuffing a stocking campaign. I am honored to be able to continue my partnership with Champions for Kids and take part in this months service project with Abbott Nutrition.
This month the project is to generate awareness about child nutrition and to create snack packs using Abbott Nutrition products to donate to a family in need, a shelter, or an organization of your choice that focuses on helping families and children.
This project is especially close to my heart as a food blogger and as a parent. So many families in our communities are struggling to put food on the tables for their families. Many of these children could be friends of our own kids, who simply need a little help after a tough year.
In the US alone there are over 16 million children that do not have access or means to healthy and nutritious foods, almost 3 million of these children are under the age of 5.
It only takes 1 person to make a difference in the community and with teaming up with Abbott Nutrition Pack a Snack, we are promoting 3 primary steps:
1. Learn about the needs in your community.
2. Gather friends together to donate foods and nutritional products such as Pediasure, Pediasure Sidekicks, and Zone Bars for kids.
3. Give and donate the products to a location of your choice that is in need of nutritionally packed foods for kids.
I will be posting again later this month following up on where to find the products as well as what I purchased. I will be donating my Abbott Nutrition Pack a Snack to Mend Pregnancy Resource Center. This pregnancy center now only helps mom’s in need who are having a baby, they also follow up with them and continue to help after the child is born. They are there to help with the nutritional needs as well as the necessities the child will need while growing up and to get the mom’s on their feet again.
Share with us, what are ways that you help stimulate healthy nutrition for children in your community?
