Think before you speak: Is it TRUE? Is it NECESSARY? Is it KIND?

If we want a healthy future we MUST do a better job at raising healthy kids. It’s ironic how adults will take their time in a restaurant, searching for the healthiest options, and then casually order the absolute worst possible choice for their children from the kids menu. As our most important and precious commodity, shouldn’t our children be getting the very best food? If we could get rid of “kid food” vs “adult food” and focus on REAL FOOD instead, we’d be making a good start towards eradicating childhood obesity, epidemic numbers of T2 diabetes and lifestyle related chronic disease. There's no time like the present to start reinforcing our future with generations of healthy kids!

"It’s easy to feel like you’re failing at life when the only snap shots you get of other people are positive ones. But it’s so important to remember that you’re only seeing a small piece of the entire picture of a person’s life - pieces that are often filtered or embellished, or sometimes completely falsified, to paint the appearance that everything is okay. But these people you’re comparing yourself to who seem to have their life together, who are living enviable lives and have smiling photos and celebratory status updates and blog posts showcasing their adventures - their lives are not as easy or perfect as they might seem. Yes, there may be moments of happiness and laughter and accomplishment, but there are also moments of heartbreak and loss and loneliness. There are days when they feel painfully inadequate or invisible or defeated. Days when they’re drowning in shame or self-doubt or fear. They aren’t the paragons of success and happiness that you’ve built them up to be.
In the midst of all the chillin' and grillin', please take a moment to reflect and give thanks to all who gave some and some who gave all. We respect and appreciate all our military service men and women and honor them for their sacrifices - not just today on Memorial Day, but for always. #memorialday #gratitude #respect #honor
If you don't make time to feed your wellness, you will be forced to make time for your illness. With every bite you are either feeding disease or fighting it. Please choose wisely. Your life literally depends on it.

Each year at our HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS event, we honor the individual, school or business which best exemplifies our mission of creating "healthy kids for a healthy world". We are very pleased to announce that this year's recipient of the Mike Katke Inspiration Award went to the Orange County Academy of Sciences and Arts (OCASA)!
As part of their annual semester long program on nutrition, OCASA has various speakers come and share their knowledge on food, nutrition and health. From restaurant owners to fitness professionals and plant-based chefs to child health advocates like Cindi, they speak on a number of topics, all related to the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices.
OCASA also participates in the Harvest of the Month Nutrition Education Program through the Orange County Department of Education. It highlights fresh, seasonal, California fruits and vegetables and students not only get to taste each food...
