Welch’s Fruit Snacks are Fantastic!

Posted on June 20, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide

We love Welch’s Fruit Snacks, in our family.  My 8 year old would take them, everyday, to school.  Now, my 22 year old, takes them everyday to work & school.  She’s teaching this Summer, so this is a great snack for her during lunch.  She loves them, as much as my 8 year old does.  We have been a fan of Welch’s for many years.

Have you tried the Blueberry Fruit N Yogurt Snacks?  They are absolutely delightful.  So delicious, and in just a small snack.  They also come in Strawberry, and Cherry.  These make a great mid-day snack for anyone.  I snack on them, myself, and love them.  I can’t get enough.  I’ve been buying them constantly.  I do limit myself to one pack a day, so they will last a little longer.  I also have 8 year old fingers grabbing them up too.

We are having a huge family cookout for the 4th of July, and this is a perfect snack to put out for the kids.  They will love them.  I can’t wait to share them with everyone.

Welch’s Fruit Snacks come in 10 varieties.  You really have to try any of them, and you will be hooked.  They are THAT good!  I’ve been hooked for a while now.  As I said, my son would take them to lunch with him, but I would come home from work, and snack on them, as well.  You, too, will love Welch’s, as soon as you taste them.  The after taste is just as good as when it’s going down.

Go Organically for After School Activity Snacks

Posted on October 28, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide

We love Go Organically, in our home.  Whether it be for a snack, or an After School Activity Snack, it is just as delicious.  My 7 year old will eat them, like they are going out of style.  My 21 year old loves them too.  With Go Organically, you can’t go wrong.  And, they are a healthy snack as well.

Go Organically has some great tips for you, for the school season, just keep reading below:

School’s back in session—and so are after-school activities! From soccer to singing to scouting, there’s certainly no shortage of kid-centric extracurricular programs where you can spend your time and hard-earned cash. But how do you know which ones are right for your kid? We’re here to help you find out!

Gauge Their Interests

The best activity for your kid is the one they’re interested in. Older kids are likely to be drawn to what their friends are trying. Toddlers and younger kids may have trouble articulating what they want to try, but there are sure to be clues to look out for. Are they constantly running around? Maybe soccer would be a good fit. Do they like to bop along to the radio in the car? Perhaps they’d appreciate a music class.

Consider Their Personality

Have a shy kid who hides behind mama when meeting new people? An acting class probably isn’t the best idea. As tempting as it can be to use activities to help break kids out of their shell, it’s best to stick with classes that align with a kid’s authentic spirit. The more comfortable they are, the more confident they’ll be—which will hopefully lead to a willingness to try new things later on.

  • Individual Activities

Independent-minded kids tend to enjoy individual sports, such as gymnastics, tennis, dance or martial arts. Non-sport options could include private lessons in music or art. Benefits of these types of activities include building self-esteem, motor skills and attention/focus.

  • Group Activities

Socially-minded kids often prefer the camaraderie of team sports, such as soccer, basketball or hockey. Non-sport options could include scouting troops or theater arts. These types of activities emphasize teamwork, communication and discipline.

Take Advantage of Free Trial Classes

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, see if you can “try before you buy” with a free trial class. Many program facilitators understand that kids can be finicky creatures, with a passion for tap one day and taekwondo the next. And it’s a good idea to decide as a family before the program starts whether you’ll let your kiddo quit before the session is over if they don’t enjoy it or ask them to stick it out to the end to honor their commitment.

Think About Your Schedule

How many activities are too many? Well, that depends on the family and the child. Some kids have the interest and energy to take a bunch of different classes while others may feel overscheduled and stressed. Budget and work timetables can also be a factor. Only you can know what’s right for your family, so trust your gut and enjoy the ride!

When shuttling kids around to activities, be sure to take along Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks. Made with real fruit and no artificial colors, our gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free kids snacks are individually packaged for on-the-go convenience. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for kid-friendly ideas and inspiration!

Tips on How to Raise a Lifelong Reader + SWEEPSTAKES!

Posted on August 23, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide Giveaways

As parents, we know that instilling a love of reading in our kids is one of the most important things we can do. Reading exercises the brain, improves concentration, reduces stress, sparks imagination and even helps develop empathy. Plus, it can become a lifelong habit that provides a whole lot of FUN for your family. So in honor of #NationalBookLoversDay on August 9, we’ve put together some great tips to help parents inspire the next generation of bookworms.

Start Early

*         Research shows that it’s never too early to start enjoying books with your little one. Reading aloud to your newborn is a great way to introduce words while soothing baby with the sound of your voice. Older babies will start to associate words and sounds with pictures, getting them on the path to reading right from the start. Plus cuddling up with a book is the perfect way to bond!

Ready, Set, Reward

*         Try using a reading log or reward chart to encourage older kids who are starting to read on their own. Jot down the title of each book they read, or tally the number of pages and celebrate with an ice cream cone or a family picnic when they reach a predetermined total. Stickers work great, too! Some schools host reading challenges of their own, and most local libraries offer summer reading programs with a similar reward system.

Seek Out Literary Events

*         Make reading part of your family’s everyday entertainment by attending kid-friendly events. Hit up story time at your local library, or go to an author signing at your neighborhood bookstore. Shop your school’s book fair together or visit a used bookstore to hunt for forgotten treasures as a family. The idea is to associate books with fun memories and quality time.

Take a Listen

*         Audiobooks are gaining in popularity-and for good reason! They’re made for multitasking by allowing you to get immersed in a story while you’re otherwise occupied with household tasks like cooking or cleaning. They’re also great for road trips<http://goorganicallysnacks.com/road-trip-survival-guide/>! Get invested in a classic as a family by listening to a family-friendly title in regular installments. Try an app or subscription service, or even borrow books on CD from your local library.

Follow Their Interests

*         Although you might be tempted to steer your kids towards educational books, let them choose subjects that capture their imagination. By encouraging your child’s passions-whether it’s superheroes, animals or even their favorite animated character-they’ll be more likely to stick to the habit of reading and eventually expand to other subject areas.

Happy reading from all of us at Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks<http://goorganicallysnacks.com/products/>. Made with real fruit, our gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free kids snacks are a great accompaniment to your kid’s favorite book. Toss them in their backpack and off they go! Be sure to follow us on Facebook<https://www.facebook.com/GoOrganically> for more kid-friendly ideas.

Welch’s Fruit Snacks ~ The Perfect Snack for a Pint Sized Party

Posted on May 2, 2018 in Reviews

My son will be 7, in just a few weeks, and I can’t think of a better snack to have at his party.  Welch’s Fruit Snacks, and Fruit Rolls are loved by my entire family.  There’s a variety of ages, and we all love them from 44, to 21, to almost 7.  These are the perfect treat.  They go good in your lunch, or for an after work snack.  Jacob takes them in his lunch, to school.  His friends all think they are cool, and so that’s what made me decide to have them at his party.

For the Fruit Snacks, there’s such a variety, too, well 10 to be exact.  This is perfect for a cookout, party, or just for casual eating.

The Fruit Rolls are still new, but they are delicious.  You will love them, I’m sure.  There’s a good bit of them, and they are the perfect size, when you need a snack.

No matter what variety you pick, I’m sure you will love them.  I grew up with Welch’s, so for me, this is a no brainer.

Welch’s Mixed Fruit Snacks for Easter will go over great

Posted on March 24, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Reviews

Welch’s Fruit Snacks are a great gift to give out for Easter. I’m going to stuff some packs in the Easter Eggs, for our annual Egg Hunt. Jacob, age 6, loves Welch’s, so when he opens up his eggs to find the Welch’s Snacks, he will be pleased.

I’m also going to be sending a box into his classroom, so that the teacher can give each child a portion controlled snack, before Easter break. And, these fruit snacks are really cute because they are shaped for Easter.

Great facts about Welch’s Fruit Snacks:

  •  Excellent Source of Vitamin C
  •  Good Source of Vitamins A & E
  •  Fat Free
  •  Gluten Free
  •  No Preservatives

However, don’t forget that Welch’s also makes Fruit Rolls, and Fruit and Yogurt Snacks. These are both excellent as well.

You can find these at your local retailer.  I just saw them at Walmart, in the Seasonal Section today.

Have the Perfect Picnic

Posted on May 13, 2017 in kids Reviews

Go On a Family Picnic Today

Picnic day was April 23, did you go on your picnic?  If not, take one soon.  You will love the fresh air, and the good foods I’m talking about in this post.  It’s inexpensive, and the person you plan it for, will love it.

explore-cuisine

Explore Cuisine is the perfect addition to any picnic.  The Bean Pasta is delicious, and it is quite filling, as well.  I love everything about it, and have even bought some, since my picnic (April 23).  The pasta is quite tasty, with a great texture.  Making you get filled on just a little.  It’s perfectly put in a container, and travels quite well.

sparkling-ice-1

Sparkling Ice is the perfect beverage, for your picnic.  My 5 year old loves it so much, we just bought another case last night.  His favorite is the Raspberry.  I love all the flavors, I’m not as picky as my five year old.  He is so infatuated with the Raspberry, that he won’t touch any other flavor.  My husband even takes a case to work, to have for his guys.  One bottle will go a long way.  It’s the perfect size, and inexpensive (I found at Walmart for $1 a bottle).

go-organically-1

Go Organically Fruit Snacks are a great snack for a perfect picnic.  These fruit snacks are delicious, and loved by the kids I shared them with.  My 5 year old, and his friends couldn’t get enough of the Go Organically Fruit Snacks.  They always go over well.  My favorite is the tropical.  I even send these as a treat in my son’s lunch.  And, my 19 year old, daughter, loves them too.  She takes them to college, to eat when she needs a snack.

little-kernel-popcorn

The Little Kernel Popcorn is another great snack.  We took this on our picnic, and it was gone in minutes.  Everyone loved this popcorn.  Great addition to any party, or picnic.  The flavors are so unique, and the popcorn tastes delicious.

I have 4 Great Activity Ideas from Go Organically Snacks, and a Chance to Win

Posted on April 29, 2017 in Giveaways

Spring outdoor activity ideas from Go Organically®Organic Fruit Snacks

Ahhh, spring. Warmer weather, flowers in bloom, and a chance to rediscover the joys of the great outdoors after several months of hibernation (and the occasional binge-watch). Need another reason to get moving? May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month—which makes it the perfect time to renew your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle while inspiring your kids to do the same.

Studies show that kids need 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. So lace up those sneakers, stretch out those limbs, and head outdoors to try one of these fun-filled family activity ideas from Go Organically® Organic Fruit Snacks.

1.       Gear Up

Make sports equipment easily accessible so you’ll be more likely to use it. Park bicycles near the front of your garage, or keep scooters in the mudroom to inspire impromptu usage. Stash a Frisbee or soccer ball in your car for pick-up games, or “catch up” on the day while playing a quick game of catch in the evenings. The idea is to integrate activity into your everyday life so it becomes a part of your routine.

2.       Play Nature Bingo

Which family member has an eagle eye for spotting things like squirrels, ant hills or pine cones? To find out, head to your local park—or simply your own backyard—and play an active yet educational game of Nature Bingo. Print out a free online template (we like these for their earthy feel) and try to find as many items as you can, marking off each square as you go. Be sure to fuel your adventure with fun snacks for kids and adults, including trail mix, fruit, and our favorite grab & go treat, Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks.

3.       Embrace Old School Games

When we were kids, it was all about classic backyard games like Freeze Tag, Simon Says and Hide-and-Seek. Our favorite? Red Light/Green Light. One child acts as the “stoplight” and stands with his or her back to the crowd across the yard from the other kids. When the stoplight shouts “green light,” the kids move forward and try to be the first to touch the stoplight. At any point, the stoplight may shout “red light!” and turn around. If any of the players are caught moving, they’re out.

4.       Take a Walk

It sounds so simple, but sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics with regular family walks. Take the dog out together in the morning instead of making it a one-man job. Or work off dinner by hitting the pavement as a family for a sunset stroll. It’s a great way to discover your surroundings, get to know your neighbors, and enjoy quality time as a family while burning off energy. We always bring along reusable water bottles and easy-to-tote Go Organically kids organic snacks to keep everyone smiling.

There are a number of products that you can fill your child’s Easter Basket with, but do you know how to make it healthy, and simple?  I’m about to tell you some great choices.

Start with Welch’s Fruit Snacks.  I love these.  They are my favorite, I get them at work all the time.  The Welch’s Fruit Snacks will fit in your plastic eggs, and it’s an alternative to the unhealthy choices.  My son, and daughter, love Welch’s too, so this is a win, win for me.  This Holiday season, the Fruit snacks are shaped like bunnies and eggs.  So cute!

Welch’s Fruit Snacks are inexpensive, and again, a great alternative to the unhealthy snacks.

easter-basics-1

Another Healthy Choice is the Munk Pack.  The oatmeal is in squeeze containers, and is delicious.  I was skeptical, at first, but once I tried it, I was hooked.  I’ll be ordering lots of this oatmeal, in the future.  It’s quick and easy.  No GMO, vegan, etc.  This oatmeal makes my mornings when I’m on the go.  I couldn’t ask for more nutrition, and a faster breakfast.  This Peach Chia Vanilla is my favorite.

easter-basics-3

The Little Kernel is a great popcorn brand, that offers Pink Himalayan Salt, on their popcorn.  Talk about great tasting.  And, fits in the basket perfectly.  Jacob and Sarah will be so surprised this Easter.  All the good, healthy snacks, and they won’t even realize the healthy part.  You can also get Naked Popcorn, salt free, or sweet & salty, which would be my favorite.  There are a good amount of varieties, check out their page.

easter-basics-2

Lastly, you need a drink, to go in the Easter Basket, to follow all the goodies going down.  What better than Aqua Ball?  Aqua Ball is Sugar Free & Preservative Free, and perfect for your early morning Easter, with your kids.  Jacob loves the Grape, and Sarah goes with the Berry Frost.  With Disney Characters on the bottles, you won’t go wrong.

To find these products, simply click on the link, in each paragraph.
