My Motherload Contest by Frigidaire

How often do you have the time to do something for yourself? If you’re like most moms, the answer is almost never. As Moms, we’re proud of everything we’re able to do for our families, but we think you’ll agree that a little “me time” goes a long way! Luckily, there’s a company out there who understands a mom’s desire to spend less time doing routine housework and more time doing what we love. Frigidaire, the appliance brand known for their legendary reliability, is unveiling 250 new appliances designed with specific time-saving features to give you more time for YOUR time.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that research shows that Moms are logging more overtime than most Americans. In fact, Frigidaire’s recently released “Motherload Index” revealed that moms spend most of their waking lives – 200 hours each month – doing the activities they least enjoy rather than the things they love.

With their new line of appliances, Frigidaire is aiming to free up some newfound “me time” for Moms and they want to know what you’ll do with it! By visiting and clicking on “my motherload”, you can share the five things that you would do with an extra hour in your day for a chance to win an entire suite of the new time-saving Frigidaire appliances.

The NEW Frigidaire kitchen and laundry collections feature high-performing, easy-to-use appliances with style and design elements that don’t just look great, but help the appliances perform better and give you better results.  All products – with their functional design and uncomplicated technology – have been built to deliver one primary thing: more time for mom.

Contest for Your Jr. Chef

PhotobucketThe Jr. Chefs of America is a cool website aimed at encouraging good nutrition in kids through cooking. My boys love to cook and they each have one night a week that they are in charge of cooking dinner. I am encouraging both of them to enter this contest. If they do, I’ll post the videos here for you to see.

Jr. Chefs of America vision to inspire a new generation of smart eaters and build parents’ confidence about their children’s’ skills in the kitchen. Featuring original webisodes, this new website is all about kids teaching kids the joy of cooking. According to Connie Liakos Evers, MS, RD, author of How to Teach Nutrition to Kids, “More than 75% of children ages 6-11 do not eat the minimum of 3 servings of vegetables or 2 servings of fruit daily.”

Jr. Chefs of America realizes that the earlier a child can learn the importance of good nutrition and portion control, the more eager and knowledgeable they will be regarding eating healthy. In the site’s original webisodes, kids are teaching their young audiences about kitchen safety, cooking healthy, and responsible meal possibilities. Using easy-to-follow instructions, Jr. Chefs of America even contains kid-friendly recipes for kids to try using the website’s safe, one-on-one environment.

“Obese children and adolescents are more likely to become obese as adults,” from  the New England Journal of Medicine. With childhood obesity reaching epic numbers, it is important for kids to learn the guidelines of healthy eating.  Instead of being pressured by their parents, this website brings the information to them by their peers.

Currently, Jr. Chefs of America is looking for more chefs to join their team.  Check out the details of the Webisode Cooking Contest:
