Some of Marc’s tips will include:

  • TAKE A LOCAL TRIP: There are still many local travel options available for families looking to get away. Check out all-in-one websites that can offer great deals on car rentals, cozy local accommodations and keep you up-to-date on local COVID-19 restrictions.
  • DRINK YOUR ANTIOXIDANTS: There’s more than one way to get in your antioxidants. If you don’t have fruit on hand, check out drinks made with pure fruit and veggies that are filled with the good stuff.
  • JUICE OUTSIDE THE BOX: Surprise the kids with fruit juice outside their normal routine and regular juice box flavors.
  • SWAP CANDY BARS FOR KID-FRIENDLY FRUIT AND NUT BARS: Keep plenty of snack bars in the kitchen for a quick treat. Many available options include complete proteins and essential nutrients like fiber, potassium, and antioxidants and have a natural sweetness with no added sugar.
