Timeline PhotosOur hearts are heavy as we look for the words to describe the injustice our country witnessed about #BreonnaTaylor’s killing last week. Many of the Black women at No Kid Hungry have helped to create this message sharing their feelings. #SayHerName

The legacy of racism in this country has targeted many Black communities with violence and poverty, and that can have a devastating impact on kids. We will continue to take steps towards addressing racial inequality as we pursue our mission to end childhood hunger.

Canned chicken works well too!!! Add a tad of buffalo sauce to zest it up.

Hamburger, lobster, pease and carrots for a casserole, the choices are endless😋

Hay unas bebidas atleticas que son bebidas regulares en su casa? Han visto la cantidad de azucar dentro de ellas? Diganos aqui cuanta azucar contiene!

Estan sorprendido con la cantidad de azucar en estos yogures?

Cuales bebidas son parte de su vida normalmente?

Para nuestras matematicas hoy: Recuerdense que 4 gramos de azucar equivale a una cuchardita de azucar.

Hola a todos y bienvenidos! Por favor diganos de donde nos estan sintonizando!

Gracias a todos por venir! Se cuidan mucho!

Piensan que su familia le gustaria este "fizz," la mezcla de jugo y agua mineral? Que sabor de jugo van a usar?

Si estan bebiendo algo ahora, comparte que es la porcion!

Imaginase poner tanta azúcar in su cafe!

Una pregunta que pasa con Las bebidas dieteticas

Hola todos! Soy de Massachusetts. A mi me encanta beber te y leche chocolate!

Hola!

Según la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) el consumo de azúcar de una persona con una masa corporal normal no debe superar el 5% de la ingesta calórica diaria, es decir unos 25 gramos aproximadamente.

We're comparing the sugar content in popular beverages, and sharing ideas for healthier drinks at home. ... See MoreSee Less

Oh cereal is REALLY hard to stick to the serving size on.

Sugar does hide in a lot of our beverages! Sometimes even the drinks we choose for great reasons have added sugar.

Your body process natural and added sugars the same--we want to stay mindful even of how much natural sugar we consume.

Fruit smoothies have quite a bit of both natural AND added sugars.

The nutrition facts label applies to everything we eat AND drink!

If you divide the number of grams of sugar on the nutrition facts label by 4, you'll be able to visualize how many teaspoons of sugar are in your drink (or food).

Just like balance in what we eat, we should look for balance in what we drink.

We found 55 g of added sugar in 16 oz. of chocolate milk. There are 7 g of natural sugar.

Here come some fun ideas for drinks without a lot of added sugar!

Sometimes it pays to be a sugar detective!

How many grams of sugar in 16 oz. of an iced coffee beverage?!?

Try to eat an orange rather than drinking orange juice!

What other flavors of juice would you like to make "fizzy?"

Does anyone have kids in schools where they don't serve chocolate milk?

There are 65 grams of sugar in one 16 oz. serving of cola (or 16.25 teaspoons)!!!!

Soda? Pop? Soda pop? Any old-fashioned friends who call it all tonic?

Chat in your guesses for how many grams of sugar are in a 16 oz. serving of cola!

WOW I love this idea.....I like to put orange and lemons

Oh here's a tricky one! How about orange juice?

That's a lot of sugar, you definitely consume what you need in one day with one of those beverages

Sometimes I buy the flavored seltzer waters and add fruit.

My teeth hurt just thinking about that much sugar

27 grams/5 servings=just over a teaspoon per person.

I like the visual you are showing with how much sugar in my drinks! Crazy

Sometimes I get tricked by the "100% of Vitamin C" claims on the front...anyone else?

Today, we feature “Eggs-In-A…” You can go the classic “in-a-hole” route OR if you are feeling adventurous, try “in-a-pepper”! Green bell peppers are often the most affordable of the bunch, but check the unit prices and buy when your favorites are on sale! Which one did you make? Which color pepper is your favorite? #Comment below! #NFVM2020 #HaveAPlant ... See MoreSee Less
