As many of you may know Thrive pick up days are now on Wednesdays.  The new pick up day started last week and the next Thrive day will be December 14.  This means that this will be the week before Christmas.  If you are planning on having Christmas parties or gatherings, you may want to plan ahead and order a few extra things.

Again, we have available for order:

  • Tortillas
  • Eggs
  • Cheese

More Sugar than a Twinkie

Hey Thrivers,

 

Just wanted to share a quick story on this blog I read today.  It talks about how much sugar they are putting in cereals. http://breakingnews.ewg.org/report/sugar_in_childrens_cereals/more_sugar/

According to the blog of EWG, it says: “Kellogg’s Honey Smacks, at nearly 56 percent sugar by weight, leads the list of high-sugar cereals, according to EWG’s analysis. A one-cup serving of Honey Smacks packs more sugar than a Hostess Twinkie, and one cup of any of 44 other children’s cereals has more sugar than three Chips Ahoy! cookies.”

So parents, take a serious look at the cereals we are feeding our children and ourselves for that matter.  Especially, as diabeties and other health related issues continue to climb in our city and nation.
