Yoplait Kids-Affordable, Delicious Snack for Kids of All Ages! Coupon, Review + Giveaway

I have a crazy sensitivity to artificial sweeteners, most give me a migraine that could kill a cow. Seriously. My thoughts on the subject is basically if that's what happens to me, what are they doing to my kids??

So, I'm the crazy lady that stands at the grocers counter to read every single ingredient, until I found Yoplait Kids. With an excellent source of both calcium and vitamin D, a good source of protein and the delicious taste kids demand, Yoplait Kids is perfect for our family. It also contains 25% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt, and has no high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners whatsoever.
What I love even more than the great health benefits, is that Yoplait Kids is a great value at just $2.00 for a pack of four, and it comes in three delicious flavors, including Strawberry, Strawberry Banana and Vanilla. Kids will love finding their favorite friends, like Dora the Explorer, (Abbie's favorite!!), Lightning McQueen from the hit movie “Cars” and the Disney Princesses, on every cup.

I've yet to see the princesses on any of the packages in my area, but I'm willing to bet that you all will hear my little lady shreik when she finds them! I typically don't buy food items with characters on them for my kids (yes, 'mean mom', I know..) but honestly, most of "those" products are filled with zero nutritional value, and usually make my kids hyper. They know that if they do get something with characters on it, it's typically a treat. With the Yoplait Kids, they not only getting something fun, but they're getting something nutritious. No matter which way you look at it, it's a win-win. Plus, right now you can print out a $0.50 coupon here, and save when you buy a four pack.

Our friends at MyBlogSpark and Yoplait have put together a great prize pack to help encourage choosing healthy snack options for children, and offered one lucky reader  their chance to WIN!

One winner will receive a coupon for any variety of the Yoplait Kids yogurt products, along with a Yoplait Kids prize pack. Perfect for accompanying this fun everyday snack, the Yoplait Kids prize pack includes a coupon for Yoplait Kids yogurt, a foldable travel cooler (to take your yogurt on-the-go), a cool four-piece spoon set, a power magnet picture frame, trendy alphabet-shaped “Kiddie Bands”, a great big bounce ball and a “My First Scavenger Hunt” card game for some after-snack fun.

        plant garden and they will love to try what they grow

        I've always believed you have to set a good example. Kids do what they see being done. They say what they hear being said. They eat what they see being eaten. With that being said we try to eat as healthy as possible. We gave up buying boxed goodies (snack cakes and such), we no longer buy potato chips (although we do occasionally buy goldfish crackers/pretzels. But most the time we opt for low-fat or fat free yogurt, carrots, celery, apples, bananas, oranges. We make it fun too. The kids love having veggie face snacks. grape tomatoes for eyes, baby carrots for the smile, broccoli for the hair, cucumbers for the ears. Keeping things fun is a great way to get them interested. Thanks for a chance.

        I do things like Ants on a log (Celery with raisins and PB) or "Sunny Side up Eggs" which is Cottage cheese with a peach in the middle.
        Thanks for the chance.

        I buy V8 splash juices so they can get some fruits and veggis in during snack time.

        Hi! I’m belatedly stopping by from the UBP. Nice to meet you! I am a new follower : )
        The only snacks I offer my kids are healthy ones, so they don't know any different! (Unless they are at Grandma's...)
        I have two blogs, and I’d love for you to stop by when you get a minute. Thanks!
