Hershey’s Moderation Nation Event with Celeb Chef Kelsey Nixon & Olympian Jennie Finch

Recently I was invited to the HERSHEY’S Chocolate World store in Times Square for HERSHEY’S Moderation Nation event with moms and Moderation Nation Good Life Gurus Kelsey Nixon (Cooking Guru) and Jennie Finch (Family Activity Guru).

With the holidays in full swing...and holiday foods tempting you at every turn...the holidays can be one of the most exciting (and hectic!) times of the year. To help you (and me!) Kelsey Nixon and Jennie Finch are working with HERSHEY’S Moderation Nation to share their tips to help you manage and find balance during the holiday season.

Here are a few of Nixon and Finch’s tips and tricks to try this holiday season and beyond:
  • Aim for Petite Portions: Rather than filling up a whole plate with your dessert, bake or serve them in small containers like shot glasses or mini mason jars to help you keep the portions small, but fun. It is also fun to give these as gifts or party favors over the holidays. Nixon’s recipes for perfectly portioned desserts like Maple Cream Chocolate Brownie Shots and Pumpkin Pecan Pie in a Jar are available at www.TheModerationNation.com.
  • Get Everyone In On the Action: The holidays are great for combining things on your to- do list with fun family activities. Turn unpacking groceries or holiday gifts from the car into a bucket brigade that gets everyone moving and involved. You’ll get a hand with the chore and have fun with your kids at the same time!
  • Moderation Not Deprivation: Don’t forgo the things you like most about the holidays! Instead of skipping the holiday party buffet altogether, think of it as a “tasting” and sample one small bite of everything! Instead of skipping the big mug of hot cocoa after coming in from the cold, have a smaller cup instead. You’ll get the experience of indulging without breaking the calorie bank. In fact, research shows that whether you prefer something sweet or salty, you shouldn't deprive yourself of the foods you love.
  • Create Traditions: Create family traditions that get people active and having fun together. After a big family meal, initiate a friendly flag football game instead of TV time. Make it into an annual tradition you can look forward to year after year.

Living the good life this holiday is all about doing little things that can help you find balance throughout your life – in what you eat, in what you do, and everything in between. Hershey’s Moderation Nation, a go-to source for balanced lifestyle tips, is here to help you enjoy the things that make this the most wonderful time of the year.

Everyone is invited to bring their own “Good Life Holidays” to life on Pinterest by posting the things that bring them holiday happiness and balance for a chance to win a weekend getaway to The Spa at The Hotel Hershey.
