As a mom there are so many things that I want for Em and many things that I’m trying to instill in her to give her the best opportunities in life. One thing that we have been spending more time on is taking better care of our health; both hers and mine.

We have both been great about drinking lots of water and we have started making sure that we work out everyday. What I didn’t know is that 80% of teen girls do not get enough calcium in their daily diets.

Em doesn’t drink milk and doesn’t really like many dairy products so I’m not surprised she isn’t getting enough calcium. If you are wondering how much calcium teen girls need each day be sure to visit www.viactiv.com.

Luckily, adding Viactiv®, a calcium supplement, to her diet ensures that she gets an adequate daily dose of calcium, plus the bonus of vitamins D3 & K. Plus, Viactiv® taste good so it’s not a struggle to take them as directed.

You might wonder what all the hoopla is about with teen girls and calcium, but 95% of peak bone mass happens by the time girls turn 20. It is important to have girls build very strong bones early in life because during menopause they will slowly lose that built up of bone mass. It’s up to us parents to make sure that girls are getting the calcium they need to have strong bones for life.

I spend A LOT of time in the kitchen. Between playing with recipes, baking, cooking for the family, and doing dishes, a good part of my day is spent in my itty bitty kitchen. I’ve never really thought about buying a special mat that would help my knees and feet be more comfortable while working […]

I’ve been hibernating inside ever since I returned from California. It’s way too cold for me to want to go out and play. However, I did venture out to the grocery store. While I was there I picked up a bag of lemons. Lemons always make me think of Spring and Summer and I knew […]
