Yoplait Kids Giveaway: Less Sugar, More Fun!



MyBlogSpark recently offered my the opportunity to try Yoplait Kids yogurt. I, of course, was thrilled! I'm a convenience food eater myself and it's so hard to not pass that bad habit along to the little one.

Snack time is hard. Sometimes it's just easier to hand the kids whatever is closest, then think about all the sugar and sodium in that convenience food. Are you, too, searching for a snack for the kids that tastes good and is good for them? Yoplait Kids yogurt is the perfect solution with 25% less sugar than the leading kids´ yogurt. With its thick and creamy texture that will hug your little one´s spoon, you won´t have to worry about a sticky mess to clean up afterwards. It also contains no artificial sweeteners or flavors, so you can feel good about serving it to your kids.


In addition, Yoplait Kids is a good source of vitamin D and, according to two new studies that provide the first national assessment of the crucial nutrient in young Americans, millions of U.S. children have disturbingly low vitamin D levels, possibly increasing their risk for a variety of health concerns, including bone problems. About 7.6 million children, adolescents, and young adults have vitamin D levels so low they could be considered deficient. It can be challenging for growing kids to get enough vitamin D because this nutrient is only found naturally in very few foods; however Yoplait Kids makes it a little easier to incorporate a delicious source of vitamin D and calcium in your child´s diet.

Sound good? My son loves this tasty snack. It's SO much easier to feed him the thicker Yoplait Kids yogurt than that gooey baby yogurt! Here's your opportunity to try it!
 
Perfect for accompanying this fun afternoon snack, the Yoplait Less Sugar, More Fun prize pack includes coupon for a Yoplait Kids yogurt, a travel cooler (to take your yogurt on-the-go), a fun spoon that changes colors in warm water, a reusable place mat with games to keep the kids happy while snacking, and a fuzzy tangle puzzle for some after-snack fun.
 
This prize pack is so much fun! I am lucky enough to offer this to 2  readers! Here's how to enter:

My son actually thinks yogurt is dessert so for me sneaking in that extra goodness is easy. I just ask him if he wants yogurt. He'll say "I can have dessert?" I say "yes, have 2!"

Otherwise I try and get them to snack on strong cheese and things like that.

Thank you!

I try to eat something healthy BEFORE the candy - sometimes that takes the candy urge away

I throw some fresh berries in with my kids yogurt at snack time. That way they're getting dairy and a fruit.
