 Looking for tips for fueling your family fun? Ali shared hers:   

  1. Share Your Passions with Your Family: Think of things you also love to do. If it’s something you enjoy, you will be more likely to stay committed to doing it with your kids every week. 
  2. Play with Your Food:  Since meals are such a huge part of quality family time, I love to make food prep part of the fun! Have your kids help you chop veggies, with kid-friendly cutlery of course, because if they’re involved in chopping up the veggies, they’ll be more likely to eat them later.  
  3. Give Family-Favorite Ingredients A New Life: My son, like so many other kids, tends to eat the same foods over . . . and over.  So instead of forcing him to try something new, I mix up how I prepare the ingredients he really loves.  
  4. Quality Time Can Be a Big Adventure or At-Home Activity: When trying to create core memories for the family, the things you do together can be anything from activities in the comfort of your own home to time spent in the great outdoors.  

 Be sure to opt into the Go-Fun-Me Challenge by June 3 and be entered for a chance to win the grand prize.
