Part of what I have talked about with Project Totus is the importance of finding whole foods that fuel my body and learning to appreciate physical activity and fitness that makes me feel good. My struggle with food, weight, and health began as a child... so when I heard about the chance to participate in the Odwalla® Game Day Challenge with Champions for Kids, #OdwallaCFK, I jumped on board! I got really excited about involving my kiddos in a SIMPLE service project that was based on healthy choices! SIMPLE as in: 1) pick out fun athletic equipment to donate to our favorite charity and 2) introduce young athletes to a better choice- Odwalla® juice! Childhood is the foundation for forming healthy habits for life, so when it comes to teaching our kids about nutrition it is helpful to have brands like Odwalla® backing us up! I've been fan of Naked® juice for years and only just discovered Odwalla®. One trip to their website and their initiative with Champions for Kids left me thoroughly impressed.
The kiddos and I headed to Wal-Mart® to pick out some athletic equipment to donate and also checked out our local Odwalla® selection while we are at it. I knew right away where to find Odwalla® juice. I've seen it in the refrigerated section before. We schlepped around for awhile...
I perused the shelf stable juice aisle and was not shocked to find that nearly ALL of the juice items marketed to children are full of High Fructose Corn Syrup and ingredients that aren't great for little bodies!
But Odwalla® has whole food purees as their main ingredient. THIS is a perfect alternative to the sugar laden juices we are giving our children.

Health, Physical Activity and Whole Nutrition go hand in hand! If you haven't already, consider making the switch to a juice like Odwalla® take the plunge!
We are going to donate our items to the Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter (where our beloved co-author SADIE works !) and we are going to go the soccer field in town to record some Odwalla® ambushes (but you'll have to tune in to our next post for that)!
