Raising kids, eating right, spending smart, living well - that's the theme of national Living Well Month being promoted in March by the Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences, both at the national level and here in Kansas. The goal of Living Well Month is to help people understand the education and information provided by Extension FCS agents to help them "live well."

Celebrate National Nutrition Month

March is one of my favorite months for a couple of reasons. I love Spring's warmer temperatures and the chance to get out and enjoy a walk or bike ride. I also look forward to sharing my passion about healthy eating during March because it is noted as National Nutrition Month. This year's theme is "Go Further with Food" and what better way is there to fuel the fun than with fresh fruits and vegetables?

Time for the parent report card

If you have kids, you are probably aware that it is the end of another nine weeks and time for report cards. I remember many years ago, one of my favorite magazines, Working Mother, had an article titled, "The Parent Report Card." It seemed a bit awkward to ask my adolescent children at the time to grade me and their dad, on 25 different things. Part of the value of the parent report card is that it brings out issues parents may not realize are important.

Walk Kansas starts soon

With snow predicted and wind chills in the single digits as I write this column it sounds a bit crazy to talk about going for a walk, but that is just what I'm going to do. Walk Kansas is a signature program for K-State Research and Extension that has been around since 2000. Each year this fitness challenge motivates people from all walks of life to get moving. The dates for the 2018 campaign are March 18th through May 12th.

Wetland Explorer

If I told you there was a bird that was an insect-eating machine, saving farmers billions of dollars yearly, you'd probably ask how to attract it to your yard. But what if that bird were actually a mammal, a bat to be precise.
