7 Healthy Tips for Busy Parents & Active Kids

February 4th, 2014

1) Eat Your Veggies

Prepare fresh veggies ahead of time. Carrot and celery sticks, baby tomatoes, broccoli or cauliflower make great snacks. Add your favorite low-fat dip on the plate, cover with large sized Covermate® and keep in the fridge. Your kids will have a ready-to-go healthy snack and can simply recover the plate for later! Here are some celery recipes to try. http://www.buzzle.com/articles/celery-recipes-for-kids.html.

2) Fresh Fruit Kebobs

Prepare kebobs of strawberries, cantaloupe, mandarin oranges, pineapple, kiwi fruits, honeydew melon, blueberries Cover the kebobs on a plate with a large-sized Covermate® and place in the front of the refrigerator! http://www.food.com/recipe/colorful-fruit-kabobs-304813

3) Who does not love nut butter?!

Prepare some celery sticks topped with peanut butter, almond butter or soy nut butter. Top with raisins or drizzle with honey. Cover the entire plate with Covermate® so your kids can grab a few and recover right after to keep them fresh. They’ll still be fresh and ready to go on the next day! Feeling adventurous?

4) Energetic Trail Mix

Prepare bowl of dried fruits and nuts and leave on the counter with a Covermate® on it! Your kids will grab a handful and benefit from healthy proteins and great carbohydrates for energy. We’ve found some great recipes to prepare for your next adventure. http://greatist.com/health/21-healthier-trail-mix-ideas

5) Sweet & Savory Roll Ups

A fun, tasty and attractive alternative to the traditional sandwich! Follow these steps to make the perfect rolls! Once all your ingredients are gathered, heat a skillet over medium heat and slightly warm the tortilla on both sides (a warm tortilla is easier to roll-up, and is less likely to break or tear.) Transfer your wrap onto a plate, add your ingredients. Our favorite recipe is spreading herb & garlic low fat cream cheese over a spinach tortilla. Add some feta cheese, fresh basil and cranberries. Roll-up your wrap and cut into slices. Lay out slices on a plate and cover with Covermate® in the fridge. Use your imagination to create tons of savory wraps!

6) No Bake Energy Bites

Your kids get home and have to get to soccer practice quickly. Make these easy no bake energy bars with only a few ingredients that you always have on hand. Mix together 1 cup oatmeal, ½ a cup raisins, ½ cup almond or peanut butter, ½ cup ground chia seeds or flaxseed, a bit of honey or vanilla to taste. Make 1-inch balls and put on a plate, cover with Covermate® and refrigerate for an hour – you can then keep them covered on the counter for your kids to grab one on the go!

7) Cheers to Health

Make your own smoothies with delicious fruits and vegetables; a healthy way to get your kids to get their vitamins! Experiment with fresh spinach and pineapple or mangoes for vitamin C. Add some grounded chia seeds, soft tofu, almond milk or almond butter for extra protein! Mix all ingredients with a food mixer and pour directly into cups. Cover each cup with a small-sized Covermate®. Why not add some frozen yogurt for a yummy treat? Your kids will love the taste!

How to Host Your Own Holiday Cookie Exchange!

December 13th, 2013

Step 1: Invite Your Guests- A good rule of thumb is to stick to 8-10 friends because every guest is asked to bring a dozen holiday treats per person, plus an additional dozen for sampling. Request RSVPs to make sure there will not be any duplicate recipes.

Step 2: Coordinate Your Display- Set up a large table with enough room for all of the treats. Print out table cards indicating the name of each cookie, along with any known allergens in the recipe. Make sure to snap some pictures of your beautiful display once all of the cookies arrive.

Step 3: Create a CoverMate Packaging Station- Have a designated area where guests can turn their plate of cookies into a easily transportable holiday treat. Set out an assortment of different sized CoverMate tops along with ribbon and decoration.

Step 4: Prepare Snacks and Door Prizes- Make sure there are appetizers and beverages to snack on besides the cookies. Create CoverMate door prize gift packs for guests to take as they leave.

Let Covermate™ help you get into the Holiday Spirit!

The company is ever-expanding its product lines, and with the acquisition of Covermate Covers in 2012, a small, American company with an innovative product, Touch has just launched its Canadian twin called Multi-Flex (known as Covermate in the U.S.), and is strategically looking to develop a variety of client segments with specific offers. “For food service, we’re looking at restaurants, schools, hospitals, catering services, etc., and on the retail side, we have high growth and we’re with the top retailers like the major grocery chains,” says Guay “We’re also looking at possible line extensions in arts and crafts and hardware stores with specific, customized orders, as well as pharmacies, plus online stores as well, because our products are good products for virtual stores and online buying. These are everyday products that people know so it is a good fit with online shopping.”

The bloggers goes on to say, “Before I had been covering the containers with foil and that didn’t always work well. I’m awful with judging how much foil I’d need so I’d waste so much.
