Swim Parent of the Month With @ChickenFarmers

When I was a little girl our next door neighbours had a pool which we were in from sun up to sun down when allowed. Swimming has always been a huge part of my life, swimming lessons were a constant until the age when I became a qualified lifeguard. Now this has extended to my daughters who are either in our pool or in a lake in Muskoka during the warmer months. Swimming is a healthy past time, all of that exercise creates hungry children who are often in need of meals high in protein to keep them going. Chicken Farmers of Canada and Swimming Canada have teamed up to honour swim parents in Canada the swim parent of the month contest.
