Worried Your Kids are going to be Inactive over Break?

Worried Your Kids are going to be Inactive over Break?

Wellspring Camps, the leading weight loss organization for young adults and families across the U.S. , knows how common it is for kids to run back to their televisions and junk food during their spring and summer vacation time from school.  But these unhealthy and inactive habits can cause health problems among kids, so how can you help prevent them from becoming couch potatoes during their breaks?

Wellspring has developed some helpful, fun tips to help keep your kids staying active, and eating right while they are home for break! 

  • Plan a fun activity: With the beautiful warm weather, the spring and summer seasons are the perfect time to engage in outdoor activities.  Whether it’s participating in a game of soccer, or going for an exciting hike in your local park, these activities will keep your kids from lounging around the house.

  • Keep junk food out of the house:  It is always important to limit your children’s junk food intake, but while they are home from school, their access to it becomes greater.  Try to resist purchasing any unhealthy snacks that may sit in your cabinets during their time off.  By not purchasing these items, your kids will have limited access to junk food!

  • Prepare a healthy snack or meal: Everyone knows it’s hard to feed children a healthy meal they will actually enjoy, but Wellspring has developed a plethora of delicious, healthy meals that every kid will enjoy!  Teriyaki chicken kabobs, chicken nuggets, and even French toast, can all be enjoyed with their improved recipes!  (Recipes below)  Visit for more recipes!
A healthy kid is a happy kid, and by following these simple tips, you can help keep your kids active and healthy during their spring and summer breaks!  For more information on staying healthy, or on Wellspring Camps, please visit

Active Wrap Review

Let’s face it when you're expecting, there are tons of things to buy for baby!  There’s the nursery to furnish, diapers, pacifiers and the list goes on and on.  It’s easy for expecting mommies to forget about themselves by getting caught up with their new arrival.  Moms-to-be need stuff too!  Here’s a list of three items every mom must have in her arsenal “before” and “after” baby. 

None of us likes swollen feet, ankles or legs.  Forget about how unattractive it is –it can actually be super painful and even dangerous.  An easy solution to reduce leg swelling is intermittent leg elevation.  The Lounge Doctor positions the legs in a unique manner which maximizes venous and lymphatic flow and reduces leg swelling.

Okay, now on to the aching lower back pain that never seems to go away.  Since you can’t pop an Ibuprofen like before, how about using something totally safe for mom and baby to help with those aches and pains?
The ActiveWrap offers easy to apply solutions with its thermal compression wraps.  These wraps support and treat muscle soreness –all completely safe for mom or baby. 

It’s here . . .the baby’s here.. . . it finally happened!  Whether you had a C-section, episiotomy or developed hemorrhoids the Handy Spray Personal Hygiene/Bidet will become your best friend.  It’s no secret that water is nature's most essential element and has been used for centuries in daily personal hygiene. Washing with water has long been accepted to be healthier and more comfortable than toilet paper. Studies have shown that regular usage of water may benefit those suffering from itching, irritation, and discomfort.


Company: ActiveWrap Inc.

Product Description:
ActiveWrap is the premier manufacturer of professional sports medicine products, specializing in thermal compression wraps and supports for the prevention and care of injuries and muscle soreness.

For complete care, ActiveWrap offers thermal compression wraps for the following: Foot Ankle Heat Ice Wrap, Back Heat Ice Wrap, Knee Leg Heat Ice Wrap, Wrist Heat Ice Wrap, Shoulder Heat Ice Wrap, and Elbow Heat Ice Wrap.

Interesting Tidbits:
ActiveWrap served as the Official Therapy Wrap to USA Gymnastics from 2002-2004 assisting the USA Olympic squad and gold medal athletes.

ActiveWrap was the 2007 Ion Sports Product of the Year!

Many top medical professionals and athletes use ActiveWrap including NFL legend and 3-time Superbowl winner Roger Craig.

I had the unique opportunity to review Active Wrap thermal compression wraps. These sport wraps are perfect for runners, gymnasts, football players, cyclists, swimmers, tennis players, dancers and more! Active Wrap has provided professional quality therapy wraps since 1997. 'It's your body...take care of it.'

I received the Mid Back/Lumbar Wrap from Active Wrap. This wrap can be used for the low back or abdominals. These wraps support and treat muscle soreness and are all completely safe for mom and baby. There is an insert that you can take out, it is a slim rectangular gel pack that can be heated or cooled. 

Then place the wrap on your back for lower back pain, or on your abdominals for cramps or soreness from working out. 

I am pleased with the quality of Active Wrap, it even comes with its own carrying case. I can use the wrap after I do yoga to help with those sore muscles. My husband gets lower back pain, the Active Wrap would do wonders for him! But I'm thinking about passing the wrap on to my sister in law who is pregnant with twins (remember? ;) thats the 100th time I've mentioned it). 

These durable, quality Active Wraps are perfect for the athletic person in your life. Visit today!

For more recipes, log onto  

Created by the authors of the popular cupcake decorating book Hello Cupcake!™. This is a fun Easter project to make with the kids or with your baking friends. All it takes are easy-to-find ingredients, fun food dye colors and delicious frosting. Easter Egg Cupcakes aren't hard to make -- but they’re sure to impress as gifts, or to decorate your holiday table. 


•    12 unfrosted Moist Deluxe Devil’s Food Cake Mix cupcakes baked in white paper liners
•    12 honey graham crackers
•    2 cans (16 ounces) Creamy Homestyle Classic Vanilla Frosting
•    Green, yellow, orange, blue, purple, and pink food coloring
•    2 tablespoons each mini and regular white, pink, green, and blue decorations

Baking Instructions:

1.    Tint 2 cups of the frosting light green. Spoon 1 1/2 cups of the light green frosting into a zippered plastic bag. Tint 1/2 cup each of vanilla frosting pink, light blue, light purple, orange, and yellow. Spoon 2 tablespoons each into zippered plastic bags. Press out the excess air in each of the bags, seal, and set aside.
2.    Using a serrated knife, trim the graham crackers into an egg shape 3 1/2 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide. Snip a small corner (1/4 inch) from the bag with the 1 1/2 cups of green frosting and pipe a small dollop on top of each cupcake and place a graham cracker on top, pressing down to secure. The cracker will hang over the edge of the cupcake. Freeze the cupcakes for 10 to 15 minutes to set.
3.    Place the remaining 1/2 cup of each tinted frosting into a separate microwavable bowl. Working with one color at a time, microwave the frosting, stirring frequently, until it is the texture of lightly whipped cream, 20 to 30 seconds. Holding a chilled cupcake by the paper liner dip the graham cracker into the melted frosting to coat, turn right side up and let stand. Continue with all of the cupcakes and graham crackers making two eggs of each color.
4.    Snip very small corners (1/8 inch) from the bags with the 2 tablespoons of frosting. Pipe decorative dots, lines, and dashes on top of the frosting-coated crackers. Using the bag with the 1 1/2 cups of light green frosting, pipe dots of frosting around base of each egg always pulling the peak away from the egg (be sure to cover any exposed cupcake).
5.    While the frosting is still wet add candy decors to create decorative patterns.
