Today our centres and programs are closed for the Thanksgiving Long Weekend. It’s a time to celebrate togetherness and family, and while we may not be able to gather with everyone this year, we still feel that there is much to be thankful for.
There are many things we love about Thanksgiving, but it is not exactly the healthiest holiday. At Today’s Family, we believe strongly in the power of healthy eating, which is the topic of today’s blog post.
Unprecedented times call for new traditions. To that end, we have a new recipe for you from the Today’s Family Cookbook that captures the spirit of the weekend while being healthier than eating all of the leftovers: pumpkin spice dip. This recipe has many of the familiar flavours of pumpkin pie while containing less sugar than most recipes. Add some sliced apples to the dip and you have a delicious autumn-themed snack or desert.
Check out the video below to get the recipe, or open up your copy of the Today’s Family Cookbook and follow along:
While we’re enjoying a heaping serving of the freshly-made pumpkin spice dip, we want to take a moment to make a list of things we are thankful for. This year has thrown new challenges at all of us, but that just makes us even more appreciative of what we have.
We are thankful for our Early Childhood Educators, some of whom opened their homes to provide childcare for the families of front-line workers, and all of whom work hard to keep all of our children safe. We are thankful for our parents and families, who continue to trust Today’s Family to provide excellent and safe care. We are thankful to everyone who is doing their part to minimize the spread of COVID-19 so that families can continue to rely on our childcare programs.
There is so much to be thankful for!
