Guest Post by Nurse Barb: Back to School with Yummy Snacks

Now that fall is coming, moms are asking me how they can prepare foods and snacks that their children will enjoy, both for lunch boxes and after school snacks. My go-to, not-so-secret ingredient is as close as my pantry. I always turn to honey as a natural ingredient to jazz up typical meals and snacks to make this back-to-school season exciting for the whole family.

With more than 300 different types or varietals of honey in the U.S., honey adds its own unique flavor to your recipes. I love that it’s such a versatile ingredient that helps make foods more appetizing. Plus, did you know that once your little one has turned one year of age, they may be able to enjoy honey with the rest of the family! The digestive system of a one year old child is usually considered by pediatricians to be “grown-up” enough to ...

Guest Post by Kerri Walsh Jennings: Sweet Relief with Honey!

It seems like just yesterday I was talking about how busy my summer is—and now I’m halfway through all of my tournaments! You all know I love competing and taking my game to the next level and without the love and support from my family and friends, I couldn’t make it through this hectic summer schedule. From international tournaments to events in my hometown, I’ve been all over! What’s been keeping me going on the sand? My favorite all-natural energizer: honey

  • Honey Sticks: With my busy travel schedule, it’s pretty tough to keep all of my liquids to 3 ounces and under! To get around this, I bring honey sticks in my bag to tournaments. No sticky messes, easy and portable to eat, it’s the perfect boost of energy after a long flight or to pump me up at the net! To find some ...

#HoneySweetRelief on a Sunny Day in SoCal

Posted by National Honey Board on June 18, 2014 - 2:08 PM

It’s officially summer vacation and we are so excited for what’s in store the next few months.

The National Honey Board and Pro Volleyball player and Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings kicked summer off in style by visiting Hermosa Beach on June 6. Armed with honey bear bottles, honey sticks and honey lip balms, the team hit the beach to bring beach goers sweet relief from the hot summer sun.

At the event, Walsh Jennings challenged beach bums on the sand court. Every hour, a couple of lucky people were randomly selected to play a quick match of volleyball with Walsh Jennings.

To attract beach goers, the team built a huge tent, filled with chaise lounges, chairs, couches, photo booth and sweet honey snacks and beverages. Crowd favorites ranged from Honey Blueberry Citrus Slush, to an ...
