Solve the Human Energy Crisis with #QuakerUp - giveaway

In today's constant moving, always busy, rather hectic society, a human energy crisis has developed. With the long, complicated days, good foods that keep energy levels high are important. Quaker wants to help with the  #QuakerUp Good Energy solutions.

Quaker believes that making the right healthy lifestyle choices, including eating smart, can help give you the good energy you want to make the most of the moments that matter. From a warm, hearty breakfast to a quick, grab and go snack, keeping energy levels in check is important.

As part of the launch of the Quaker Good Energy Lodge, Brook Burke Charvet hosted a Google Hangout for select media participants. During the chat, she offered some of her person tips and ideas for maintaining her energy as a busy mom.

Brooke Burke Charvet offered these suggestions for being an energized mom.
  • Start your day with a good food choices, which provide good fuel.
  • Try five small meals throughout the day to maintain energy levels
  • Keep a snack chest in your car. Any busy mom knows how many hours are spent carpooling. The snack chest can be a quick, easy source for good food choices on the go.
  • Even on busy days, try to exercise. The activity can make you feel better.
During this year's Sundance Film Festival, Quaker previewed its short film, Quaker's Sundance Short Film on the Energy Crisis. This film shares three moms thoughts and experiences on their busy and sometimes overwhelming lifestyles. From making difficult choices to finding a moment to breathe, these moms are willing to put their children first. Most importantly, the children appreciate the choices that the moms are making.
