I try very hard to be all about healthy living in our household, I try. We still have a lot of improvement needed in our house. We eat a lot of vegetables and fruit but we aren’t the most active family out there. I’d love it if it didn’t rain so much here and if the average temperature was a little warmer. But since I can’t change the climate and we’re not going to move I need to make do with what I have. We need to come up with a family exercise program. Currently we use the Xbox Kinect as our exercise program and I have to admit it is a lot of fun.
Walmart’s Healthy Living initiative aims to help families like mine. They are giving 9.5 Million in grants to help organizations that are helping families to have healthy nutritional eating habits. Through these organizations like Share Our Strength, the National 4-H Council and Action for Healthy Kids, the Walmart Foundation plans to reach nearly 300,000 people across the nation: They are going to teach families how to eat healthy on a budget, give cooking demonstrations and teach them how to make healthy choices. You know, Share Our Strength is one of my favorite programs I’m so glad that Walmart will be working with them. They plan to provide $4 million for grocery store tours to 7,500 participants through Shopping Matters which helps low-income families learn how to shop healthy on a budget. Be sure to check out the Walmart healthy living Program yourself for a full list of organizations they are helping and all the amazing things they are doing.
