Keeping Children Active During Winter

 

Keeping Children Active During Winter

Even though they have heaps of energy, your kids might also want to cuddle in front of the television instead of sweating it out. It’s about keeping your family motivated to adopt a healthy lifestyle all year round. Here are a few tips for keeping your children active during the winter months.

Lead by Example
Whenever you are trying to teach your children any habit, it’s best to lead by example. You don’t always realize how your actions are influencing those around you. By committing to a winter workout routine or active indoor activities, they will follow your lead before you know it.

Playlist Play
If it’s pouring rain outside, get creative in the great indoors. There must be certain songs that get you and your kids moving. Compile a list of their favorite songs on your iPod, or even YouTube and see what happens when you start to pump the tunes. Make sure that there is a lot of space for dancing so that they don’t feel limited.

Old School Games
Inspire your kids to move away from their iPads by re-introducing old school indoor games. Musical chairs, hide and seek, and treasure hunts are sure ways to get them moving. Create an incentive by rewarding the winners, but not necessarily with foods or sweets.

Chores Galore
This might be your children’s least favorite past time, but if you already have a chore system in place, this will help tremendously with their physical activity. These chores could include indoor and outdoor activities during the winter months. Before you know it, shoveling snow could turn into a snow fight, or snowman art project. You just have to give your kids the tools that will inevitably lead to exercise.

Family Hikes
Organize family hikes during the winter months. If it’s on the calendar, then it’s more likely the activity will actually take place. Make it an event by inviting family and friends on the outing. Discover new trails and make the best of your surroundings. Make sure there are warm refreshments for when you get back. Sit around the fireplace and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or soup and enjoy the family time.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
