Most of us can relate to having cravings for sweets. Chocolate, cupcakes, Skittles, and ice cream top many “must have” sweets list. Even the most health-conscious of us couldn’t imagine an entire life without some sweets. And sweets are a good thing! MakIt is celebrating all things sweet this month!
MakIt is kicking off the month of June with a celebration of all things sweet! Since it’s National Candy Month, we wanted to celebrate our favorite things sweet. Just a few of our favorite things this month include:
- Doughnuts – who doesn’t love the sprinkled ones?
- Hershey’s chocolate
- Homemade chocolate chip cookies
In fact, the month of June agrees with us because the following “holidays” all fall within National Candy Month:
- National Rocky Road Day
- Chocolate Ice Cream Day
- Doughnut Day
Having a treat is a great way to celebrate the little things in life. An “A” on a report card, a successful t-ball game, or a family road trip usually always calls for a sweet treat of some kind. The biggest trick when it comes to sweets is keeping it in moderation. Too many sweets can be bad for us or make us feel sick and complete avoidance of sweets can stress us out both physically and mentally. Real Mom Nutrition offers helpful tips for teaching children to eat sweets in moderation and all can be started today!
