Good morning, sunshine!

Those first few weeks getting in the back-to-school routine can be hard, but this Rise ‘n Shine smoothie recipe helps your kids get out the door fast with a healthy breakfast in hand. Mix this up on the days you don’t have time to cook a real breakfast. Rise and Shine Smoothie

Celebrate the first day of school with a special Dreamsicle Fruit dip.  This special after-school snack will be a big treat when they get home from their first day. Have their favorite fruits on hand for dipping, and maybe even a few sugar cookies, too!

To help your kids boost their immunity and stay well throughout the school year, it’s important to start a wellness routine from the time they get tossed back into the germ-pool that is school. Make it a habit to drink 2 oz of Ningxia Red daily to build up a healthy immune system.  Also, you can apply Thieves to the bottoms of their feet before bed each night to head stuff off at the pass.  It is a good idea to do this daily.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, after all.

Thieves is a MIGHTY little bottle of wellness, so keep this by your sink to wash away the germs after school each day.  You can either make this DIY Germy Kids Hand Soap, or just by the Thieves Foaming Hand Soap from Young Living.  It is excellent for killing the cooties and keeping kids well!


While you’re in the DIY mood, mix up a quick spray bottle of Stinky Kid Spray to help eliminate bad odors after practice. Purification is an instant odor eater, so spray this mixture on clothing or inside stinky shoes to knock out the smells.  You might also want to keep a bottle in your car if you are hauling more than one stinky kid around town after practice.
