It Takes A Village - Start Early And Create Healthy Habits That Last A Lifetime with Ruby Rockets
Yes, it starts this early on! Creating healthy habits that truly last a lifetime, like anything else, takes work. It's all learned behavior.  As parents we are all working hard towards the same common goal; to ultimately ensure that our children have the tools for success. Success begins and ends with health. After all, much of everything else in life is dependent on our health.

Recently, with my daughter's Celiac disease diagnosis, came an incredible awareness of the food that we purchase, prepare, and serve our children. We now strive to eat "clean",  and in addition to the long list of gluten ingredients that we avoid, we also steer clear of GMO's. It's been a HUGE learning curve for us however, the subsequent health benefits for our family are priceless. 

Creating  healthy habits that last a lifetime, truly takes a village! As such, we adore brands that keep their consumers' welfare at the forefront in product development; especially when the product line is geared and marketed towards children. Ruby Rocket's, the all-natural frozen treat brand, is lending a hand in helping children develop life-long healthy habits. Both with their healthy product line, and with their new school outreach program.

On Monday, Ruby Rocket's kicked off their partnership with Philip's Academy Charter School (in Newark, NJ) and the school's EcoSPACES program. Ruby Rocket's has partnered with the school to help promote healthy habits among the students that attend the school.

Philip's Academy Charter has committed to inspire their students to embrace the highest principles of environmental and nutritional stewardship, through their EcoSPACES Program. The program utilizes unique learning environments such as a rooftop garden and indoor farming lab to provide students with access to whole, fresh fruits and vegetables and a hands-on education on living a healthy lifestyle.

After the assembly on Monday, Ruby Rocket's handed out goody bags to each student that included a coupon for a FREE box of their all-natural, organic frozen treats. The students also had a chance to sample the frozen pops during lunch; as you can see, they were a hit!
