A mom who takes action for better nutrition.
A mom who seeks to redefine the lunchbox.
A mom who advocates for change in the lunch line.
I would love to be that mom, but I have a lot to learn before I get there. Kiwi Magazine and Revolution Foods are two wonderful resources if you're looking to reach this goal.
I started reading Kiwi Magazine sometime last year, and it is awesome. The wonderful articles and resources are designed to help parents raise their children in the healthiest way possible. Kiwi Magazine is where I go to learn more about natural and organic products, "green" living, healthy recipes and fun eco-crafts. And not that this really matters, but I also love the glossy cover and pages.
Revolution Foods is something that I just discovered, and it sounds really cool. It began with a founding team who believed that all students should have access to healthy, fresh food on a daily basis. They promote healthy nutrition by delivering wholesome meals and providing food education to schools across the San Francisco Bay Area and the Los Angeles Metropolitan area. We're talking meals like all-natural chicken teriyaki served with fresh broccoli, carrots and snow peas atop organic brown and basmati rice - sounds absolutely delicious! They also sell a number of tasty lunchbox snacks online and in selected stores. This is a company looking to make a difference, and so far it seems like they doing a commendable job.
Right now, KIWI Magazine and Revolution Foods are searching for hometown heroes that are making a difference in their kids communities through healthy initiatives big or small. Five moms will be selected to be featured in Kiwi Magazine, receive a free Kiwi subscription, and a one year supply of healthy lunchbox snacks for their family. One of these lucky moms will win the GRAND PRIZE of $3,000 in cash to help fund their own healthy School Lunch Revolution!
