Last week our girls headed back to school which means it’s time to pack lunches. As a mom I want my girls to have healthy and filling lunches and I often turn to brands that I know I can trust. Nature’s Path is one of those brands that moms can feel great about.
With Natures Path Envirokidz I can not only make sure my girls get a healthy breakfast cereal but that they’re snacks and lunches are just as fun and nutritious!
Right now when you buy EnviroKidz products you can enter to win a trip for your family to Costa Rica! That means that our favorite healthy snacks are also a chance to win!
Schools out and your kiddos are hungry. Do you have healthy snacks ready to go? I have a few tips I wanted to share that help our family snack healthy and stay healthy too.
- Plan Meals – Make sure your family is eating healthy and whole meals. If a little belly is full it will be less likely to want a snack later on.
- Measure It Out – Kiddos often have an easy way of eating too much so it’s important that you measure out snacks for them. If dinner is in an hour and ballet class just ended I know my daughter will need a light snack to tie her over. Too big of a snack will spoil her appetite for dinner.
- Be Prepared – Once you have measured it out keep healthy snacks on hand and easy for your children to reach. I keep small bags with carrots and grapes in the fridge along with EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars in a jar on the counter.
Right now EnviroKidz is sending three lucky families on an EnviroTrip to Costa Rica to help save the sea turtles at SEE Turtles. The non-profit wildlife conservation travel operator in the beautiful OSA peninsula. Three lucky winners and their families (three groups of 4 people) will get an all-expense paid trip to Costa Rica in March 2015.
You will get to spend three days working with Costa Rican organization Latin American Sea Turtles to catch endangered green and hawksbill sea turtles in the Golfo Dulce, a beautiful gulf located alongside the Osa Peninsula. Then you will help researchers set out nets, measure the turtles, and collect important data before releasing them back to the water. In addition, the winners will participate in a mangrove restoration project, helping to plant two species of mangrove trees that are critical to turtles and other wildlife of the Gulf. Finally, the winners will visit a chocolate farm to see how the world’s favorite treat is made!
