Time to "Get Active" Again With Yoplait Kids!

We saw flurries a couple days ago and the heat has been running... hard to think of playing outside with that going on!

But the weatherman promises... we should see the 80's this weekend. So we're looking forward to getting back outside with our Yoplait Get Active Prize Pack from My BlogSpark.

My kids absolutely adore yogurt and I love the convenience and health benefits of it. It appears somewhere on their menu at least five days a week. And that's great news! Because you know what? Research has shown that fewer than half of all kids ages two to 12 get the calcium they need each day. And calcium and Vitamin D are both essential nutrients for building strong bones. Yogurt is a great source of both nutrients!

So I was thrilled to receive a coupon* for a free 6-pack of any of the Yoplait for Kids yogurt products (Go-Gurt, Trix, Yoplait Kids). These yogurts are available in a wide variety of flavors and none of them have any "chunks"- handy, since many kids are opposed to chunks in their yogurt! My two preschoolers like all the flavors of Yoplait Kids... seems that while they appeal to tons of others, the bright colors of the Trix yogurt turn my kids off. (I should also note that my kids refuse to eat applesauce that is any color other than "apple colored"!)



Along with the yogurt coupon, we received a Yoplait Get Active Prize Pack. Perfect for a fun-filled day for active children, it includes:

  • A travel cooler (to take the yogurt on the road!)
  • A jump rope.
  • A water bottle.
  • An outdoor game set that includes a beach ball, paddle ball, Jai-Ali, and a Frisbee
And it's all neatly packaged in a drawstring net bag. Can I tell you how much I appreciate that fact? Much less clutter sitting next to my door!

There's nothing like new outdoor toys to help get you busy and moving out there. It had been awhile since I'd had the opportunity to show off my mad Frisbee skills...

Since I truly feel strongly about the importance of good nutrition and staying active for our kids, I am absolutely delighted to be able to offer two more of these prize packs (each including a coupon* for a free 6-pack of yogurt) to my readers. I 'll be giving one away each week for the next two weeks.

This is the second week (of three) and the giveaway will run through next Tuesday evening, April 28st.

To enter, simply leave a comment answering the following question:

What kinds of healthy snacks do you pack to help energize your active kids?

We like to combine whole grains and protein around here... cereal and drinkable yogurt or cheese and wheat crackers help fuel my on-the-go kiddos!

(*Important: This coupon offer for a free six pack of Yoplait for Kids yogurt is not valid in some states, including Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota and Tennessee.)

Good luck! I just know the winners are going to have a blast with this prize.

Some of my favorites are string cheese and little boxes of raisins. Very portable and not too messy!
