Dairy Farmers of Canada show milk’s health benefits in a captivating way


Dairy Farmers of Canada wanted to highlight all the surprising ways milk benefits health – like how it could help reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. So they made this beautiful and unexpected video to promote the benefits of milk and their free Get Enough Helper App. The video – which features a stunning interplay between aerialists on long silk ribbons – embodies the ways that milk can help untangle the blue ribbon of colorectal cancer. The App helps people track what they eat based on Canada’s Food Guide, and each day someone uses the App, Dairy Farmers of Canada donates $1 on their behalf to the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada, as well as other worthy causes. There’s intensity and strength and a bit of drama. It’s all metaphorical, of course. But the video ...

As someone who has been limiting the sweets coming into her home, the Easter candy aisles are making me cringe. Not only do I not want my kids to end up in a sugar coma for days, I also know I will indulge in too many sweet treats if they are in the house. I can't be trusted around large amounts of chocolate, unless I have healthier sweet alternatives. Danette is just the type of sweet treat I need to keep myself on course without feeling deprived. One Danette can keep me out of their Easter baskets for the rest of the day! Danette is made with 75% milk, has only 15 grams of sugar and comes in individual-sized containers that take the guesswork out of portion sizes. Danette has a silky texture in six delicious flavours, including classics like Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Caramel, ...

What happens when we disconnect?


Our lives can get caught up in technology. Not only are we entertained by our televisions, smartphones, tablets and computers, but we use them for everything. I can order dinner from my computer, check the weather from my phone, and find out what homework my kids should be doing by looking at their classroom blogs. The PVR ensures I never miss my favourite shows, and my ipad goes with me when I travel so I can always stay connected. But what happens when we disconnect? From power outages to rainy days, sometimes the most unexpected moments can bring us together. With blackouts on the rise and ice storms more common than ever before, whether by chance or by choice, we tend to connect more when we’re powered down. The latest video from Kraft Peanut Butter shows the powerful ...

Join the #FamilyTravelCA Twitter Chat on March 24th at 8pm EDT


Travel is my passion, so I follow many fellow travelers through my social media channels. My travel bucket list grows daily as I surf through their pictures on Instagram and see their adventures on facebook and twitter. It's not the only thing that grows though, so does my FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Life is short, and I need to see every single place before I go. That's not asking for too much, is it? My expectations may be a little hefty, but I don't think I'm alone. Most travelers will tell you that their bucket list consists of every place they have not yet been. The travel itch is contagious, and it spreads rapidly through social media! There's nothing like a gorgeous scenic photo to get my FOMO going. Do you suffer from Travel FOMO? Tell us about it at the #FamilyTravelCA ...
