Tomato Balsamic Ravioli

Today I am teaming up with a great group of bloggers, Partnership for a Healthier America, and All-Clad to help raise awareness of childhood obesity. The theme for this event is back to school, which couldn’t come at a better time for me.  School starts for my 3rd grader tomorrow!

According to Partnership for a Healthier America
approximately 12.5 million U.S. youth are obese and about 11 million more are overweight.  This is a staggering statistic, and scary to think about.  We live in a city that does a great job of encouraging young people to be active.  They have free kids races throughout the summer, free biking events for kids, and there is only one road in our entire city that doesn’t have designated bike lanes.  I exercise almost every day to be healthy for myself, and my family.  I want to set a good example for my 8 year old, so as he grows up he knows that being active is just part of your life.   My son’s school even does a “Schools on the Move” challenge each year, to teach kids good habits.

As school gets started again, many of us struggle with getting a quick and healthy dinner on the table during the week.  Between school, homework, and practices, time is limited in the evening.  Having a few go to recipes for busy nights helps to avoid getting take-out, or going through the drive-thru.  This ravioli recipe comes together in less than 20 minutes, with the help of fresh store bought ravioli.  Serve with some bread, and a salad for a healthy, and quick dinner any night of the week.

We are using fresh vegetables and herbs from our garden this summer, and are working on just the outside aisles of the grocery store, cutting down preservatives and making homemade versions of our favorites!

A little less junk food plus more exercise and sleep. Hopefully we can meet these goals!
