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.

Filling your child’s Easter Basket made simple

Posted on April 9, 2017 in kids Reviews

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.

easter-basics

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.
