Food drives, soup kitchens, churches and other community
groups receive tons of donations during the holidays, but a lot of the goods
that are so generously offered are less than healthy. The next time you, your
fam, your school or your friends wants to donate a can of soup or box of cereal
to those in need, go above and beyond by checking the nutrition label.
- Canned fruits that are not packed in heavy syrup
- Low-sodium soups and veggies
- Whole-grain pasta and brown rice
- High-fiber cereals
- Peanut butter
- Canned tuna or chicken
- Ingredients you can pronounce. And the shorter the list,
Go forth, girlies! ‘Tis the season of giving!
