    Dear Extension Homemaker,

    I hope each of you have a very Happy Holiday Season! It has been another wonderful year and I thank each of you for all of your help, sup- port, and hard work during 2017. I am very ex- cited to see what 2018 brings. If you have any questions about upcoming events, be sure to contact me! Also, we are starting a new game! Somewhere in the newsletter is a hidden trivia question. Once you find the trivia question, be the first person to call the Extension Office with the correct answer and you will receive a prize from me! Good Luck!

    Many Thanks,

    What to do during Spring Showers... When the weather is nice, you can go outside and take a walk or a hike. The sunshine and the warm breeze feels great. Then, one day, it starts to rain and you can’t do those outdoor activities like you planned. What do you do with your kids on those days? It’s time to get creative and do fun fitness activities indoors. Try one of these simple activities to help you get active when the weather is not so nice outside:  Fitness shuffle: This is a great indoor game that doesn’t require a lot of room or equipment and everyone can enjoy it. Each person receives a small bean bag or coin to put on the tops of their feet. Keeping feet together, the players “shuffle” their feet forward a little at a time to move without letting the object fall off their feet. Create a finish line and have each player race to the end. Try racing an adult against a child or to have a tag team event if you have several children.  Indoor obstacle course: Create a fun obstacle course using furniture in your home. You can also put two tables together and use string or yarn to create a maze that the kids can climb over and under.  Follow the leader: Encourage the “leader” add some active movements such as jumping jacks, running in place or hopping on one foot.  Dance party: Turn on your favorite tunes and move to the beat!  Freeze dance: When the music stops, freeze in your pose and hold it until the music begins again. Encourage everyone to move as fast as they can – jumping, bouncing, marching, wiggling - while the music is playing.  Push the parents: Plant your feet and see if the kids can budge you. If you move your feet, they win. Make it a little easier for young children by standing on one foot. https://food.unl.edu/indoor-fitness-activities-what-do-during-spring-showers

    What’s better on a cold winter day than a warm bowl of soup? Soup can be nutritious, easy to prepare, and inexpensive. It can be great hot or cold, prepared with minimal clean-up, only needs one pot, and the combination of ingredients is unlimited. Soup is a great dish for a variety of palettes and can be tailored to be spicy, savory or sweet. January is National Soup Month, a good time to think about how soup can fit into a healthy eating plan. Follow these helpful tips for making soup delicious and nutritious. Tips for Delicious and Nutritious Soup: Soup for every season. As appetizers, side dishes, or main dishes, soups help celebrate the bounty of the four seasons. Soups can be thick and hearty, smooth and creamy, or savory. They can be served hot, such as minestrone, or cold, such as mango and cucumber soup. Be sodium savvy. To keep soups tasty and healthy, use low-sodium broth, stock, or soup base for the foundation. Experiment with fla- vorful herbs and spices in place of salt. The most effective replace- ments are savory flavors with "bite," such as black pepper, garlic pow- der, curry powder, cumin, dill seeds, basil, ginger, coriander and onion. Use minced or powdered garlic and onion rather than their salt form. When substituting minced or powdered garlic and onion for the salt version, use about half as much. Make healthier choices with Nutrition Facts Labels. When buying canned soups, use the Nutrition Facts Label to help choose ones with lower sodium levels. Foods with less than 140 milligrams (mg) sodium per serving can be labeled as low-sodium foods. Claims such as “low in sodi- um” or “very low in sodium” on the front of the food label can help identify foods that contain less salt. Choose healthier substitutions. Soup can be a healthy, inexpensive meal. Keep soups lower in fat and calories by using cheese, sour cream, or bacon sparingly as a topping or garnish. Or choose healthier substi- tutes like reduced-fat shredded cheese, low-fat sour cream, non-fat plain yogurt, or turkey bacon. Substitute a whole-grain product for a refined product – such as using whole-wheat noodles, barley, or brown rice in soups and stews. Cook once, eat
