I am super excited to participate once again with our friends, Janice and Susan over at FiveMinutesForMom.com in their seventh annual Ultimate Blog Party. This is the fifth year that The Healthy Moms Magazine has participated. I love The Ultimate Blog Party because it gives me a chance to showcase my blog to all of you and network and meet amazing bloggers online!
If this is the first time you have visited this site I will introduce myself and tell you a little bit about The Number One Health Blog for Moms. My name is Cascia Talbert and I started this blog nearly six years ago. I can not believe that I have been doing what I absolutely love for this long! At first I wanted to share information about health and wellness but never imagined that it would grow as large as it is today.
|Cascia Talbert and family – 2011|
My family has moved around a lot over the past five years. I grew up in Wisconsin and we lived in California for a couple of years. Today my husband, our five children and I have made a home in Spokane, Washington. I am a very busy mom of five with two children with special needs. My husband travels a lot for work so I find myself home alone with the kids most of the time. Running a social media business from home and taking care of five very active children keeps me busy!
Background about The Healthy Moms Magazine – The Number One Health Blog for Moms
My husband was born with a heart defect and struggled with his weight for many many years. Before I met him he lost over 100lbs and he was my inspiration behind this site. We all know how dangerous obesity is. Many Americans today are just living an unhealthy lifestyle. We are so busy with work and our busy lives so we just want anything that is quick and easy. With all the fast food, junk foods and processed foods marketed to all of us people reach for the unhealthy choices and then struggle with the health effects. Our children suffer the most from this lifestyle. One out of every 10 children under the age of 16 is overweight or obese.
Kids learn by example. They watch their moms and dads eat fast food and quick easy pre packaged meals then sit in front of the television four hours after work. It is no wonder so many kids are overweight and obese. Here at The Healthy Moms Magazine we believe that in order to have a healthier generation parents need to be educated on how to lead a healthy lifestyle first so that they can share that information with their children.
Our mission is to provide the best health and wellness information for parents in order to make an impact on childhood obesity. We know that the only way we will reverse obesity statistics in the United States is through education and example.
If you have time please take a look around our site. I publish articles from several health and wellness experts and well known mom bloggers. I also review the latest health and wellness products for families and children, share health news and opinion, beauty tips, fitness tips, stories about my Catholic faith, book reviews, blogging tips, and much, much more.
The Healthy Moms Magazine also hosts twitter parties every month and several giveaways. There is something for everyone on this site. We live up to our reputation as The Number One Health Blog for Moms.
