Hershey's Moderation Nation - Win a Prize Pack!

"Everything Good In Moderation..." - Sometimes it's especially difficult to embrace this wise philsophy - especially during the holiday season! Our friends at Hershey's steps in with some great tools and suggestions to help us all enjoy without guilt...

With Moderation Nation, a new national program created by the Hershey Center for Health & Nutrition, (HCHN) in collaboration with the American Dietetic Association, you can now have access to a variety of tools that will help you achieve moderation - and you don´t even need to give up your favorite foods!

For on-the-go needs, the new Moderation Nation iPhone app, free and available on iTunes or via, will reward you for the activity you´re already doing, while encouraging you to do even more in a way that suits your busy lifestyle. With an easy-to-read tracker and a comprehensive list of activities to choose from, you can earn badges for your progress and go from a Starting Gun to a Healthy Hero!

The Moderation Nation Web site ( provides a host of new tools for you and your readers, including:
Recipes and Expert Tips. Here you´ll find advice from Cheryl Forberg, registered dietitian (RD) for NBC's The Biggest Loser, award-winning chef and New York Times best-selling cookbook author

Additional recipes and tips from Regina Ragone, Food Director at Family Circle magazine; Keri Glassman, author of the O2 diet; and Liz Ward, author of Expect the Best Pregnancy.

Moderation Menus. Seven-day meal plans - with snack ideas - that will help you plan out your week. Each menu is based on an individual lifestyle, such as Single, Adults with Kids and Adults with No Kids.

Balance the Meal. This cool balancer tool allows you to input your main dish and its preparation method; in return, you´ll receive ideas for complementary side dishes that round out the meal smartly.

Useful Facts. Here you´ll find everything from a "portion distortion" guide - providing cues on what actual portion sizes should look like - to a grocery shopping fact sheet - to a guide on how to start and maintain a food journal.

Hershey's and MyBlogSpark provided me with a "Moderation Nation" prize pack, which includes a Moderation Nation t-shirt, Hershey´s chocolate and a nutrition journal to track your food and activities as well as another Prize Pack for one lucky reader!

A favorite Hershey's chocolate moment of mine was making snowmen out of marshmallows with the kiddos, using pretzel sticks for the arms and nose, black gel ising for the eyes and buttons and the Hershey kiss for the hat! Very fun! :-)
