Give Bees A Chance

It’s hard to believe the month of June is coming to a close. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you saw this post of my travels to North Carolina at the end of May. I flew solo with the two boys and it was a wild ride to say the least. We scheduled our trip back to North Carolina this year around a two weddings and I decided to come earlier and spend more time here with my family. Logan has had the time of his life being in North Carolina.

Our life revolves around food — whether that means a snack or a meal. Logan’s carry-on bag during travel was stocked full of KIND snacks to help keep him happy. Once we landed in North Carolina, our first stop was Chick-Fil-A. Ohhh how I miss living near Chick-Fil-A! It’s the only fast food I will allow my kids to have — well except for the Happy Meal my mom gave Logan during our trip. One of our next stops was Black’s Produce Stand. As usual, Logan had a good time like he does everywhere he goes. Local produce always tastes better and I want my kids to know the importance of supporting local farmers.

I’m excited to partner with Whole Kids Foundation, a Whole Foods Market nonprofit to help spread the word this month about their “Give Bees a Chance” campaign and importance of honey bees. Teaching my kids about nutrition and where our food comes from is important to me. Honey bees are so vital to many of the foods we consume.

 

Here are a few fun facts about bees:

  • 75% of  the top  100  crop  species  rely  on insect  pollination.    Bees  are by  far  the most  productive  pollinators,  doing  80% of  all  the pollen  work  in the  world.
  • Honey bees are responsible for one in every three bites of food in the United States.
  • Honey bees are  the  only  insects  that  produce  something  that  humans consume.
  • Be a responsible  consumer:  support  bees  by choosing  organic  and non-GMO  products that do not  contain  chemicals  that  are harmful  to  bees.
  • Choosing native  and  heirloom  plant  varieties  is beneficial  to the environment.  Hybridized  plants  are engineered  for  their  looks  and produce  scant  amounts  of nectar  in  comparison.
  • Bees are attracted  to  the sweetest  watermelons,  where  they  leave  small  brown  blemishes  on the exterior.   The more  spots  you see, the  sweeter  the melon!
