UK Athletics Kids Zone

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I found a really neat site for kids who love sports today – UK Athletics Kids Zone. The zone is part of the UK Athletics site – the governing body for athletics (that’s track and field for those of us in the US) in the United Kingdom.

Kids can play games like Long Jump, 200m Spring, and more. There are also screen savers and desktop art to download, athlete profiles, a quiz and more great resources. Check it out today!

Free Soccer Moms Cookbook from Ragu

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Ragu Soccer Moms CookbookOne of the biggest challenges of being the Mom of three athletes, is getting everyone fed – healthy, quick, and something they like.One of my favorite strategies is menu planning. Each Sunday night, I plan the menu for the week. I can make sure we get balanced meals, it saves on groceries, and keeps us away from too much fast food.

Another strategy I have used a lot lately is to make double of our favorite meals and then freeze the leftovers in single serving containers. Since I have one really picky eater, this comes in handy a lot.

Ragu has created a cookbook that is geared toward active families on the go. It is complete with recipes, shortcuts, and other time saving tips. Go to the Ragu website to get one for free.

Thanks to 5 Minutes for Mom for letting us know about this great freebie.
