We live in a land of plenty, and that can be both a good and a bad thing – for very different reasons. JP is at an age where he is picky about how and what he eats. It's hard to make him understand that he is very fortunate to have his favorite yogurt snacks and plenty of fresh fruit, because so many children out there don't have those options. At his age, when he eats, he's also exploring his food – it has to be hard for a 3 year old to ignore the fact that mashed potatoes are just like play doh.
Reasoning with a him also has its challenges, but we're working on!
The worst part is this – I cringe when I swipe off what he doesn't want to finish into the trash. On the same token, what am I supposed to do? Force him to eat it? No.. Certainly not..
Through October 12th, shoppers will be able to generate meal donations for feeding America by purchasing select products from participating food suppliers (General Mills,Kellogs, Unilever, Kraft Foods and ConAgra Foods). On the packaging you'll notice how you can engage and see what you can do to participate using the mobile app. Sounds fun to me! Yes, I love playing around with new apps – why not play with one that helps fight hunger?
Also, last but not least – be a participant in the Golden Spark Promotion for a chance to win 50K for your community! It sounds like an all around win to me! It's definitely something I'll be checking out next time I'm in-store.
