TAMPA (BLOOM) – September is National Family Meal Month and Registered Dietitian Carissa Galloway joins Maggie Rodriguez the guest host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show Bloom to share tips for getting back into routine with health habits this time of year! As kids get back to the classroom and adults get back to routine after summer vacations, it is a good time to reboot your wellness routine to feel good and stay healthy this time of year.

For a quick dinner idea with big, bold flavor Carissa recommends Mrs. T’s Pierogies which are pasta pockets stuffed with creamy mashed potatoes and cheesy goodness.  Carissa made a 1 skillet dish – Classic Pierogies with Kielbasa

Protein is key in your kid’s lunchbox and Carissa recommends adding in Wonderful Pistachios which offer a good source of plant protein and fiber.

Don’t forget hydration for kids!  Offer POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice in the lunchbox for a boost of antioxidants with no fillers or added sugar.
