Pay it Forward for Mother’s Day!

Eat your veggies! Go play outside! Turn around all that good advice your mother has handed out over the years, for Mom’s own good.

The blogosphere is full of fun and healthy suggestions for all occasions, and this blog is no exception. Take Mom for a walk! Bake her healthy muffins and yogurt parfaits! (I personally prefer these suggestions over simultaneously runny and burnt eggs) Sign Mom up for yoga class hot or not!

I’ve collected a smattering of what’s on offer this Mother’s Day – take your pick, find your favourite or get creative and use these suggestions for a jumping off point for your own celebrations.

  • Heart and Stroke Foundation has designed some quick and cute Heart Truth e-cards
  • Eating Well’s stocked up on healthy recipes
  • Low and no-cost suggestions for hikes and park picnics
  • Head to a local farmer’s market
  • Check out fun events in your local paper
  • Other web suggestions included wandering through parks and gardens

Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at BC Alliance for Healthy Living, we’re on Mom’s side with all the great advice.
