As moms we all strive to be the best we can for our families.
I try to make healthy, environmentally-friendly and socially-conscious choices and lead by example for my kids. It’s not always easy to make these choices when you are busy because convenience is important.
Here are tips for making healthy (for you, your family, others and the world!) food choices as an on-the-go mom:
Have lunches and snacks ready. During the week I am running here and there doing different errands often times in the middle of the day. In the evening, when the kids are home, many nights we have baseball and softball games times during dinner time. It’s so easy to prepare a few lunch box meals to keep in the fridge, that way if you are running out the door for an errand or a baseball game, you can grab a meal instead of going through the drive-thru. Pack foods that travel well: whole fruits, sandwiches and snack-sized bags like Nourish Snacks.
Keep snacks in the car. I just started keeping a basket in the car for healthy snacks. Nourish Snacks travel well, have no GMO’s, no artificial anything, gluten free, dairy free, less than 200 calories and packed with nutrients like protein, fiber and antioxidants.
Go reusable when you can. I used to buy plastic water bottles and we could go through a case a week. Did you know U.S. landfills are overflowing with 2 million tons of discarded water bottles alone? (Source: idswater.org) It’s so easy to re-fill your own water bottle and you will probably end up drinking more over the course of the day!

Support fair trade and social good companies. It is important to buy products that are fairly made. I’ve compiled a list of 150+ social good companies that you can search for gifts, food and other items that you can easily switch out with the brands you currently buy.
