UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
When the school year starts, do you find yourself pledging to start new habits? Once the kids get back in school, it seems like I make just as many resolutions as I do at New Year’s. For example: Now I have more time to myself, so I resolve to actually get my exercise in each day. Or: This year we will have a set time for doing homework & we will limit the amount of screen time.
Today I have a giveaway for two products that are meant to help you meet one goal: With the start of the school year to have the kids eat right & take care of their oral health.
I make every effort to get my kids a hot, healthy breakfast every school morning. But…..I find I’m only successful about 3 days out of 5. Don’t you ever have those mornings where you just can’t seem to dive in with both feet? On those days, I’m happy my girls can make a hot, healthy breakfast for themselves: Van’s Waffles! Van’s has a waffle for everyone whether you look for organic, whole grain, gluten-free or lite. They also have a new line of Whole Grain English Muffins that go from toaster to table in a jiffy.
No matter if I cook my girls breakfast or not, I do always send them to school with a lunch I make. One of our biggest challenges this year? My youngest is in braces with springs. Has anyone in your family ever had these? I swear in a hundred years, society is going to look back at these springs and think them just as primitive as we find the use of leeches! Her biggest problem with braces has been the amount of food that gets stuck in them. Enter Plackers. Admittedly, these are not the greenest choice we’ve made in our house. However, they truly have been a necessity during this season of my daughter’s life. If I pack her a lunch like the one above, I know the tortillas are going to stick some place. So I pack a Plackers ortho pick. Problem solved.
