Lately I’ve been indulging in this mid-morning snack:
This is my very necessary iced coffee, and its companion is some plain yogurt with a few banana slices.
I have quite the sweet tooth, so the banana slices alone aren’t enough to make this yogurt yummy to my tummy. But by adding a packet of Truvia®, the no calorie sweetener that I also added to my coffee, I’m in business!
The snack idea is super easy to make, but it isn’t the real reason I’m writing this post. I want to talk about Sharing a Sweet Future. This is a charitable initiative that Truvia® has launched, and it is poised to make a huge difference in the country of Bolivia, where 2/3 of the population lives below the poverty line, and where every single day, 40% of Bolivian parents struggle to meet the most basic needs for their children.
As a parent, that statistic sends me reeling. Nutritional deficiencies are rampant in Bolivia, and so are health problems associated with smoke inhalation from primitive stoves that are used to prepare meals.
Truvia® has partnered with World Food Program USA, and they have already made life sweeter for so many in Bolivia. To date, 37,405 children in Bolivia have received more balanced school meals, and 68 fuel efficient stoves have been distributed, which have allowed more than 3,500 students to eat in safer environments.
Truvia® wants to do so much more, though, and they need your help! you can Learn even more about the Truvia® brand’s initiative here and then spread the word like wildfire!
