Winter Snacktivity: Snowmen Energy Balls
If you have young children you can make up the batter and then have them roll the balls in coconut. If you have older children, they can potentially do the whole recipe with a little assistance from you to stay safe with the food processor blade.

Nutrition to Help Kids Grow - and Sleep!
Every year our team of Pediatricians at Schneider Children's Medical Center have 20,000 visits from children with issues relating to growth. Our doctors wanted to find a non-invasive way to help children grow and the nutrition in our shake mix is the result of their efforts. The nutrition in our shake mix was shown in a clinical study to promote growth in 6 months, as well as improve sleep patterns in kids who take at least 1 serving per day.
