What Does Non-GMO Mean for your Frozen Fruit Smoothie?

Apr 11, 2016

What is a GMO?
The relatively new science of genetic engineering (GE) allows DNA from one species to be injected into another, creating combinations of bacteria, plant, animal, and viral genes that do not occur in whole foods through traditional crossbreeding or naturally. GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are organisms that have been created through this gene-splicing biotechnology.

In 1994, no GE food crops had been planted in the United States. Today, more than 165 million acres are planted each year. The Center for Food Safety, a non-profit, public interest, and environmental advocacy group headquartered in Washington, D.C., estimates that 70-75% of all grocery store products contain at least one genetically modified ingredient.

Are they safe?

In 30 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production of GMOs. Because GMOs are relatively new and their consumption and performance lack long-term study results, people concerned with food safety and how that relates to human and the Earth's health, question their safety.

Some believe that one of the main problems with genetically modified foods is that the process of inserting genes into the DNA of a food plant is random; scientists have no idea where the genes go. This can allegedly disrupt the functioning of other genes and create novel proteins that have never been in the food supply that could prove to be toxins and allergens.

Labeling GMOs

Whether safe or not, Americans have stated they at least want labeling laws enacted. By an overwhelming margin, American voters say consumers should have the right to know if their food is genetically modified, with 89 percent in support of mandatory GE labeling.

Almost the same number of consumers would like to see the labels in an easy-to-read format, not via a barcode or other technology. More than 30 states in the U.S. introduced legislation to require GE labeling in 2013 and 2014, with laws recently passed in Vermont, Connecticut and Maine.

Healthy Children’s Eating Habits: Building Smart Choices at a Young Age for Whole Nutrition

Apr 6, 2016

When it comes to healthy children’s eating habits, it is great to introduce them to a healthy lifestyle at a young age to help it be easier to maintain whole nutrition.  Even if you have work to do on your own diet, implementing a healthier lifestyle is a perfect way to bond with your family with a beneficial initiative. Everyone will feel better and can encourage each other to make smart decisions. Below are 4 ways to help your children learn how to steer clear from junk food and enjoy making smart food choices:
  • Introduce and Let Them Choose: We can’t expect children to like every food they are given. No one enjoys everything! However, the more foods you try, the more likely you are to find something that you enjoy eating. For kids, offer them new fruits and vegetables often. Introduce them in all kinds of ways. Wondering how? Check out these 26 Food Swaps to make You Healthier from BuzzFeed. Often times, you can disguise certain foods in recipes!
  • Team Effort: Make a healthier lifestyle of whole nutrition a family affair! When you meal plan for the week, incorporate everyone’s ideas. Set up a family meal planning meeting each week and let everyone share his or her ideas. This is the perfect for both parents and kids to get foods they like in their meals each week. You could even work the conversation into your normal family dinners. Another way to make the process more involved for everyone is to cook together as a group. Allow your children to learn the process, from food prep to putting it on the table. It will be easier to get them on board with healthy eating habits when it is something they are a part of.
  • Encourage Healthy Snacks: As you and your family eat throughout the day, be sure to always have healthy snacks on hand. Having fruits such as apples, bananas and grapes readily available, or vegetables like broccoli or baby carrots, is a great way to encourage snacking. Frozen fruits are also a great item to have on hand - and perfect for smoothies! This is a much healthier alternative for snacks rather than allowing your little ones to eat chips, cookies, sugary soda, etc. Plus, it will help keep them feeling good and be more attentive.
  • Kick Off the Day Right: A nutritious breakfast is the ideal way to start off your children’s day. According to Healthy Children, children that eat a quality breakfast are overall much healthier. It provides them the nutrients they need and helps them start their day right. It is important to make sure they have plenty of protein, whether it be eggs, yogurt or a healthy cereal (avoid sugary cereals). Frozen fruit smoothies are also a great way to supplement your breakfast, from strawberry and banana smoothies to blueberry and raspberry.

When it comes to helping your children develop healthy eating habits, look to Froozer! Our goal to create a new way of delivering a healthy nutritious lifestyle that looks and tastes great is the perfect addition for your family’s meal plan. We are committed to easy ways to incorporate healthy eating into your daily lifestyle and is great to get your kids started on the right track. Get meal ideas and browse our product selection to make the move toward whole nutrition!
