Being a Healthy Mom doesn’t mean you can’t eat out when you want a treat or you’re on the go! It’s not just online orders that work for cardholders, it’s brick-and-mortar stores too. One of the wonderful things about being a cardholder as a Healthy Mom is that no matter where you are in the city, or what you’re hungry (or thirsty) for, there’s probably something nearby for you.

Once kids become old enough to understand what the word “treat” means, they basically spend a good portion of every single day asking for one. The problem, of course, is that we can’t give our kids over-processed, sugar-laden food all the time. Well, we can but the result is less than ideal. I'm definitely running into the treat conundrum myself, even with my 2-year-old, who once (okay, last week) made his big sister late for school because of the meltdown he had when I refused to give him a treat for breakfast.
