Summer is officially here! It’s time to get out and enjoy the fresh air. Keep your kids from camping out in front of the TV all season, and try one of these thrilling family-friendly activities.
1. Plan a Day at Piedmont Park
There’s so much to do at Piedmont Park! Create an agenda around everyone’s interests. Plan a picnic, watch the kids play on the playground, go for a bike ride or go swimming. Remember to pack plenty of water to keep everyone hydrated during the hotter days, and bring plenty of portable snacks, like granola!
As a matter of fact, there's constantly something going at Piedmont Park. Check the calendar of events online for festivals taking place throughout the summer. Some upcoming ones include the Atlanta Street Food Festival and the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival.
2. Catch a Baseball Game
When was the last time you brought the family to a game at Turner Field? Start your adventure by tailgating in the parking lot before the game. Have brunch prepared at your tailgate to save on buying food inside the park. There are plenty of games your family can play in the parking lot before you walk over to Turner Field. If you have Sunday tickets, your kids can even run the home bases after the game!
If someone in your family has a peanut allergy, you may want to make other plans. Turner Field has an abundance of peanuts in the stadium, but there are select games throughout the year that have peanut-free sections in the venue.
3. Splash Through the Fountain of Rings at Centennial Olympic Park
Is the public pool too crowded? Take your family over to the Fountain of Rings at Centennial Park. Let you kids run through the interactive fountains as you relax and enjoy the Atlanta cityscape. Just don’t forget towels and extra clothes for the car ride home!
4. Ride the Skyview Ferris Wheel
If you want to view the city from a different perspective, take a ride on the Skyview Ferris Wheel. The lines for the Ferris wheel vary from day-to-day, but it is worth it because you can get the ultimate view of the city. It’s open until 10pm, so you and your family can even see the city all lit up under the summer sky.
5. See Animals From Around the World at Zoo Atlanta
Let your kids’ imaginations run wild as you take a trip to Zoo Atlanta. There are so many different species of animals, and there’s even a petting zoo. As a matter of fact, Zoo Atlanta hosts special programs throughout the summer. On certain days, your family can see what happens at the zoo when the sun goes down!
One of the most nutritional and mouthwatering ingredients in Bing’s ‘Nola is honey from Georgia Honey Farm. While it’s incredibly delicious, it is amazing for your health too. Here are some of the health benefits that give you an excuse to splurge on Bing’s ‘Nola and other snacks containing honey:
Soothing Sore Throats and Coughs
Do you have a sore throat? Honey can help reduce the irritation. Take a few teaspoons of honey to help relieve your cough and cold. As a matter of fact, that’s why you see it advertised in cough drops!
Pimples and zits pop up at the most inconvenient times. If one does flare up, honey has antibacterial properties that can help clear the affected area. All you need to do is apply some raw honey to the area on your face, and let it sit for 10 or 15 minutes before you wash it off.
Seasonal Allergy Relief
Incorporating local honey into your diet (like Georgia Honey Farm) is said to help reduce the severity of seasonal allergies. While this isn’t scientifically proven, several people swear by using this natural ingredient for immunotherapy. It’s delicious, and it’s one less pill to take – so, why not?
There are so many more benefits, but these are some of the sweetest. You’ll never have to feel guilty on splurging on honey again! Now, isn’t that sweet?
While Bing’s ‘Nola is a very fun brand, food allergies are a very serious topic. Severe food allergies can cause anaphylaxis, which is a life-threatening allergic reaction. If you have a child that suffers from food allergies, it may be hard for them to understand the severity of their allergy without getting scared. Yes, it can be scary, but you can help ease that fear by educating your family on how to live safely with a food allergy.
Having a food allergy isn’t something to be embarrassed about, and it’s important your kid understands it’s completely normal. They shouldn’t keep it a secret, and should make an effort to spread awareness about it. You can help by spreading the word to their teachers and peers. This will allow everyone to be prepared in the event your child is exposed to something they are allergic to. It can even help prevent your child being put on the spot about potential food offerings in the future.
It’s OK to say ‘NO’
While you may have told some of your kid’s peers and teachers, there may come a time when they are still offered something they are not allowed to eat. While accepting the snack may seem like the polite thing to do, your child needs to prioritize their health. Teach them polite ways of saying ‘no, thank you’ for when they are offered food they know they cannot eat (or are unsure of).
Help them find alternatives
Food allergies may prevent your child from eating the foods they love. It can be hard to cut out these foods, but you can help them find new foods they enjoy. One way you can help is by creating an alternative to their favorite food item. That is how Bing’s ‘Nola was created after all! Utilize the internet to experiment with different allergy-free recipes, and maybe you will create a yummy recipe all of your friends and family love too!
We’re pleased to announce the recent launch of our blog! Stay tuned for upcoming posts on news, recipes and more. Feel free to send us photos and feedback of your Bing’s ‘Nola. Who knows, you may end up on the blog or on one of our social media pages!
