The Ontario Minor Hockey Association and HelloFresh are excited to continue their successful partnership that brings healthy, easy-to-make meals to the kitchens of busy hockey families for another season.
Practices and games over the dinner hour often leave families running in different directions and eating on the fly. When families find themselves at the rink during meal time, fast food and convenience items can be a lifesaver in a pinch – but when it becomes the norm, it can have negative effects on everyone in the family.
Irregular meal times and fast food can build unhealthy eating habits for athletes and their siblings who miss out on much-needed nutrients from whole grains and fresh vegetables found in home cooked nutritious meals.
“We are thrilled to partner with HelloFresh for another season to help hockey families make healthy decisions at the dinner table," said Ian Taylor, OMHA Executive Director. "It is important that players eat healthy so they can perform their best on the ice and HelloFresh gives parents the confidence to make the right food choices that are fast and nutritious.”
Sitting down as a family is perhaps the most instrumental meal to keep families connected, especially for teenagers. Research has shown, teenagers who eat family meals at least three times per week have significantly higher grades in school and better self-esteem. HelloFresh solves that problem by creating stress-free dinners that take less than 40 minutes to cook.
Each month a recipe will be presented and shared through a series of interactive videos throughout the hockey season. These recipes have been specifically designed by experts to make the most out of your time by combining taste, nutrition, and timeliness in meal creation.
