Honey – Natural Energy for the New School Year!

by Bárbara Trujillo Gómez

Sweeten Your Back-to-School Shopping List with Pure Golden Energy

Family ReadingSummer is coming to an end and a new school year is just around the corner. While the summer season is all about relaxing on family vacations with the kids, the weeks leading up to its end are all but calm.  Frantically getting ready for back-to-school buying school supplies, shopping for new school clothes and brushing up on last year's lessons so that the little ones are ready to go on the first day. Well, now that the hard part is almost done and out of the way, it’s time to get them energized and ready to start learning again! Fitness and wellness expert Bárbara Trujillo Gómez and the National Honey Board (NHB) invite you to try out a new honeylicious menu that will give your kids the all-natural energy they need to get back into school mode – and even inspire them to help out with the prep!

We all remember our favorite lunchtime items from when we were kids, but nothing ever beat the special lunch mom or dad would pack us. Their goal was to pack something that would both satisfy us, but would also be light enough to keep us from needing a nap after lunch. Using this as inspiration, Bárbara has come up with seven energy-packed honey recipes that emphasize simplicity and taste. The menu combines honey with vegetables and fruits in fun, creative ways, like in the Cucumber Turkey Stackers with Avocado, and also celebrates Latin favorites like in the Chicken Ropa Vieja Bread Cups.Chicken Ropa Vieja Bread Cups

“Like a lot of parents, I have a very busy schedule, so for me it’s important to make sure that my kids’ lunches and snacks are easy to put together without sacrificing quality; that’s why I use honey in all of my favorite (and their favorite!) recipes to give them a boost of natural energy,” says Bárbara. “Honey’s versatility lets me use it in so many different meal options for them, and I’m comforted by knowing that I’m packing them something special that will help them stay energized and focused at school,” she adds. And with recipes that can be put together in less than 10 minutes, like the Ham & Cheese Lettuce Roll Ups with Honey Mustard Sauce, this menu will become a go-to list that will keep both you and your kids smiling all school-year long.

Make mealtime the time to re-energize by putting together these tasty and kid-friendly honey recipes. Visit www.mielpura.org for all the back-to-school options and try a recipe out today with your kids; once they see how easy it is, preparing lunch for the next day will become a new bonding activity for the whole family! We also have some fun how-to videos, led by Bárbara and her son Max, which you can use as guides in the kitchen.
