Habits for a Healthy Life

In general, humans are creatures of habit. We do the same things over and over again, either because they’re easy, or because they’re all we know. We learn and develop habits by watching our friends, families, and peers/co-workers. When it comes to helping children develop healthy habits for life, you have to start early and you […]


Parent-Approved Kid-Friendly Snacks

One of our biggest passions at Lifeway is childhood nutrition and education. We believe that the keys to good health include what you eat as much as how you eat.

Dairy Still Rules in New Report

Get Nutty on National Almond Day

Other than offering a crunchy, contrasting texture to creamy kefir, almonds deliver a stellar nutritional profile. They’ve been shown to reduce […]
