Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

National Children's Book Week is May 7-11, 2018. In Kerry's Healthy Kids section on her Healthy Diet Habits website, she recommends a book called "Heroes - People who Made a Difference in Our World", by Dr. Harold J. Sala.

It was an amazing book, where we learned about 100 different heroes in our world, who would never probably be written up in People Magazine. They were each extraordinary, and real heroes, who displayed courage and great character!

Everyone hopes for kids with great character - find out more....
