No doubt about it, the warmer weather is moving on in and with it comes the perfect opportunity to get outside and get active!
Need a little motivation? Yeah, me too. So this Yoplait Get Active Prize Pack from My BlogSpark arrived at just the right time.
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
It was a shame that our package arrived on a drizzly, 30-something degree day because my kids were raring to go! We've since had the chance to go outside and "get active" together and we've had such fun. 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 THREE 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 three weeks.
This first giveaway will run through next Tuesday evening, April 21st.
