Cabot Creamery Coop offers Health and Wealth kits
CABOT, Vt. (9/22/11)--Cabot Creamery Cooperative, a sponsor of the Credit Union National Association’s Home & Family Finance Radio, is offering free “Growing Health & Wealth” kits to credit union members nationwide. The kit, created for families with children ages six to 10 years, encourages parents and grandparents to help kids understand the importance of healthy food choices and money management. Building strong bones and bodies with exercise, dairy, calcium and good nutrition, along with building strong financial values through creative ways to save, spend and share are among the themes the kit emphasizes. The kit--available for download--includes an activity book, family guide and poster. A key component of the Growing Health and Wealth program are Moneyboxes that help children develop personal goals, wishes and positive experiences. Kids can create Moneyboxes out of simple household containers and materials and label them to represent three themes: Save, Spend and Share. Cabot Creamery Cooperative initiated the Health and Wealth program to promote the idea health and wealth are correlated, and the sooner children are taught about the benefits of a healthy diet, regular exercise and money management, the better off they will be. Home & Family Finance Radio is a weekly one-hour program that offers information and advice on consumer finance issues. To download Growing Health and Wealth kits, use the link.
