Advancing Science Education – with Toshiba
Technology giant, Toshiba, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision, the world’s largest K-12 science competition. ExploraVision challenges young, brilliant minds from the United States and Canada to envision and present new technology — 20 years into the future — through collaborative brainstorming and research of current science and technology. The program was designed to allow students at any achievement level, attending public, private or home school to show off their ideas about changing the future. Since its inception in 1992, more than 360,000 students have participated in the ExploraVision. This fun and engaging program can inspire a lifelong love of science, technology and innovation for students and teachers alike.

Helping Kids Eat (or Drink) Their Veggies – with Global Gardens Group
It’s almost back to school time – a perfect opportunity to make sure your kids have healthy and wholesome food and beverage choices. Introducing healthy habits early on increases the chances that your child will maintain their health into adulthood, and helps ward off the alarming side effects of being overweight. As child obesity rates continue to rise, more kids are struggling with diabetes, a disease once only seen in adults. Desiree Nielsen, a Registered Dietician, joins The Balancing Act to offer helpful tips. For starters, she suggests incorporating a plant-based diet – consisting of fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans and whole grains. She also introduces Veggemo – the first non-dairy milk to originate from veggies. Veggemo is dairy and lactose free, cholesterol free, gluten free, soy free, nut free, non-GMO and vegan friendly. It’s perfect for kids with food allergies or those who are lactose intolerant. And Veggemo provides the same level of calcium and Vitamin D as milk, while acting as a better source of Vitamin B12. Tune in to learn more about Veggemo and how you can incorporate it into various drinks and meals the whole family will love. Go to www.veggemo.com to learn more.
Preparing for Another Allergy Season – with the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America
Many of us love the fall: nice weather and beautiful trees, not to mention the falling leaves. But allergy sufferers see the season in a different light. It can be somewhat difficult if you’re sensitive to allergen triggers, and it can be even tougher for children returning to school. Michele Cassalia, with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, joins The Balancing Act to share some great tips for those who suffer from allergies. With some preparation and organization, you and your kids can have a problem-free year. Visit www.aafa.org to continue your research and find more support.
