New Beginnings Family Academy, along with friends at Whole Foods Market and funder Whole Kids Foundation, have teamed up to share some delicious recipes that promote nutrition, wellness, and fun collaboration in the kitchen.    


“We hope you enjoy trying these monthly recipes that support healthy eating,” said NBFA Director and CEO Ronelle Swagerty. “This is a great way for friends and family to make smart food choices together.”    


This month, NBFA is happy to share a recipe for the Hot Apple Cider!

Tips From Chef Todd 


Each month, NBFA Chef and Food Service Supervisor Todd Daigle will provide healthy tips on the recipe to give more options for taste or dietary restrictions. 


Don’t Have Cider on Hand?  Try apple juice, it works well.

Celebrate National Organic Month! Cut an organic apple into small pieces and add them to the bottom of the mug. Pour in the cider and watch them rise to the top!
