Busy schedules and the convenience of fast food make it hard for families to eat healthy.
This is especially true for Latino and African American communities where fast food tends to be more abundant and access to grocery stores is limited.
Moms have the power to make a change!
Let’s use #SaludTues on July 18, 2017, to tweet about empowering moms to make healthy food choices for their family, including the awesome digital tools that are part of the “You’re the Mom” campaign!
