Health and Wellness Blog & Booklet
In September 2013, Associated published the Eating Your Colors: A Nutrition and Wellness Guide for Families with the support of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. This booklet is a compilation of the work published in our Health and Wellness Blog.
In March 2012, Associated launched the Health and Wellness Blog as a resource for our families. The blog, also translated into Spanish, highlights a wealth of information and provides resources and tips for ways our familes (and yours!) can lead healthy, well-informed daily lives. The blog is fully funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. Below is just a sample of the information we cover on the blog:
- Monthly “Eat Fresh, Live Healthy” newsletters that highlight a specific fruit or vegetable and provide a delicious recipe featuring the selected produce of the month. The newsletter is prepared by our Director of Nutrition and Food Service, Janet Rose.
- Photos and notes from the classroom—see the health and wellness-related lessons our kids our learning
- Relatable tips for parents on choosing and preparing the most healthy AND delicious foods
- Resources for free local outdoor events for families to enjoy
