NHB Exhibits at Mommy Con!

NHB Exhibits at Mommy Con!

Earlier this month the National Honey Board  traveled to Chicago to exhibit at the Mommy Con parenting and kid expo. This was our first time exhibiting at one of the Mommy Con shows and we were beyond excited to be a part of it.

We had heard about all the great products and information that would be at this show and knew it would be silly for us to miss this event. Even before the show doors opened, we could see that a massive line was gathering down the hall that went out through the doors. We knew that this ballroom would be flooded with new and expecting parents who were eager to learn not only about honey, but other brands that pertain to kids and the family.

When the show started at 10am, our booth was flooded with attendees! We had a great location right inside the main doors and people had to walk right ...

A Honey of a First Birthday!

A Honey of a First Birthday!

We created our First Birthday program a few years back in an effort to educate parents to wait until their child turned one to introduce honey into their diet. We know that turning one is a huge milestone in every family’s life and that our Honey Bee Birthday Cake is the perfect treat to celebrate! 

This past weekend was very special, as one of our staff member’s daughter turned one year old! Of course there is so much to celebrate, and she did so in style with her very own Honey Bee Birthday Cake! The cake turned out beautifully and the birthday girl enjoyed her first taste of honey. What a great way to celebrate such a special time in their lives!

Guest Post by Kerri Walsh: The Buzz About Gold

Guest Post by Kerri Walsh: The Buzz About Gold

Nothing is more exciting to me than competing in the Summer Games, but having the opportunity to kick back and watch the Winter Games was a real treat. The pursuit of gold in Sochi was truly a triumph of the physical and the spiritual, and watching inspired me even more for the 2016 Games. It also reminded me that there are so many elements to consider when preparing for such an important event, and even the smallest choices can be game-changing. 

As a professional athlete and busy mom of three, I can always use some help in the energy department. I turn to honey for a quick and natural energy boost, which helps me power through each day. I also found that using honey as an all-natural moisturizer is perfect for combating dry skin in the winter. This tip would have definitely been a lifesaver for the winter Olympians in ...

Hogs n’ Honey Cook-off

We recently participated as one of the judges at the Hogs 'n' Honey Cook-off at CIA Greystone in St. Helena, Calif.  and are were so impressed by all the incredible recipes! The Feb. 8 event culminated a nationwide pork and honey recipe contest among Sysco chefs that drew 125 entrees.  The National Honey Board and National Pork Board co-sponsored the competition and cook-off, spearheaded by Sysco's Sr. Director of Culinary, Neil Doherty, who attended the 2013 Honey Summit.

Four Hogs 'n' Honey semifinalists participated in the February cook-off to vie for grand prizes in three categories. After an intense morning of food preparation at the CIA, and deliberation among the judges, top prize (Best Use of Pork and Honey) was awarded to Sysco Chef Noah Barton for his Honey Braised Pork Cheek ...

Guest Post: Nurse Barb Talks About Honey as a Solution for Winter’s Challenges
Todays blog post was written by Nurse Barb Dehn, spokesperson for the National Honey Board. Nurse Barb joined Women Physicians in 1991 and is known throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, with regular television appearances as a health expert. 

 

It has been an unrelenting winter so far, and even if you’re not in the path of the polar vortex of snow, ice and freezing temperatures, you’re probably dealing with a few challenges that are common in the winter season. For my patients, family, friends and neighbors, honey is one of my favorite natural defense secrets, especially when it comes to those nagging coughs that are more common during cold and flu season.

What about coughs?

For years, I’ve been using honey and recommending it to my family and patients to help ...
