The Chinese New Year is a time of great celebration that lasts for 2 weeks, and starts on the first day of the Chinese calendar. It is the time of family reunion and thanksgiving for the past year. During this celebration time, marketplaces are bursting with the colors that symbolize prosperity and blessings for a great start of a new year. These foods can help you and your family be healthy:
• Red colored foods bring you blessings throughout the year, so red foods such as apples, pomegranates, and blood oranges are a must in Chinese New Year!
Based on Chinese Zodiac, 2012 is the Year of the Dragon! Dragons are active, passionate, confident, brave, and energetic, just like the Super Crew®! Encourage your children to start out the Chinese New Year eating lucky-healthy foods so they can be as strong and active as a Chinese Dragons!
