It is hard to be a kid with a busy schedule and try to stay healthy at the same time. Today was an example of a “jam packed” day. I had track practice after school and after that I was straight off to softball practice. It is super important to keep hydrated on busy days. Even if your not busy, hydration is so important! I also pack lots of healthy snacks like jerky or apple slices and cheese sticks to tie me over until my next meal. I can’t stress how important grades are at my age as well. I keep up with my homework and I work my best. Having healthy food leads to having a healthy brain!

Hi! My name is Chloe Long. I am 12 years old, and I am going into 7th grade. Three summers ago, I was the winner from the state of Montana for the Healthy Kids Lunchtime Challenge. I entered an original recipe called "What You Don't Like Tofu?!" Stir fry. I got to go to a lunch with 53 other winners (from 50 other United States and 4 territories) at the White House. We got to meet Michelle Obama, and she dined with us as well. It was an amazing, unforgettable experience. I have always been into cooking and healthy eating, but this past summer I really got into it. I love to cook meals to my liking, and health is very important to me. Exercising and eating healthy food keeps me feeling great and energized. I decided to start this blog to teach other young kids about the importance in healthy eating, and how fun cooking for yourself, family, and friends can be. I will be posting recipes, pictures, and facts about my meals that I make through out the upcoming school year. It can be hard to have good, healthy meals when you have a busy schedule. I will be giving tips and tricks for packable lunches, energizing breakfasts, and great dinners. With a combination of exercise and awesome food, I hope everyone has a wonderful, healthy school year. Happy cooking! View all posts by Chloe Long
