Promotions are everywhere in Canada showing food sponsored by the Toronto Blue Jays and, though I’m a fan of the Jays, I am not a fan of the message.

My six year old son is addicted to baseball in the summer, primarily watching the Blue Jays win their way to the top of the league. When he goes grocery shopping with me and sees their well recognized logo on hot dogs, chips and even beer now (though he’s not in that store I know he would love the cans) he immediately wants the product. A lot of the times he’s trying to sneak it into the cart without even knowing what’s in the package, for him it’s all about that logo on the package.

Once I remove it from the cart and explain what it is he’s ok with leaving it behind because he has been raised to understand health from illness.

Together we watched a documentary titled Kids Menu so that another educator could reiterate what we’ve been teaching him with more lessons and in a way he was eager to learn from.

With all of the new connections I was just introduced to 80 Twenty Nutrition and was delighted to find a recipe our whole family will enjoy called PBJ (Peanut Butter Blue Jays) Rally Shake. I invite you to try the recipe as well as read the entire article posted on the page and support the Toronto Blue Jays this season!

Thanks for reading,
