EnviroKidz Bars Giveaway!

Would you like a healthy snack for your children?  Would you like a healthy snack for yourself?  If so, the EnviroKidz organic crispy bars is what you are looking for. EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars comes in two new flavors – Lemur Peanut Choco Drizzle (chunky peanut butter and peanuts with chocolate drizzle) and Penguin Fruity Burst (‘marshmallowy’ taste with colourful bits of fun fruity bursts). These low fat bars are made from whole brown rice.  They are low in sugar and sodium.  They have no trans fats and are a great gluten free option.  Now, the Fruity Burst bars were a tad sweet for me.  However, Madison (my 4 year old) inhaled them.  Now, the Peanut Choco Drizzle were saved for mommy.  I had quite the chocolate craving when we got these, so I ate those myself.  They were super good, took care of my chocolate craving, and were healthy.  I’d much rather give these to my kids than most of the snack foods that are out there.  I’d rather eat one of these instead of a candy bar.

Now, I would love for you to try these and have arranged for 2 lucky winners to get a box of each flavor of these bars.  Here what you can do to enter:

EnviroKidz cereals

This site is all about easy cooking and what’s more easy than putting some cereal in a bowl and adding milk? Nothing, I tell you. Madison and I recently tried out the new EnviroKidz cereals, and I have to say I am impressed. Being lactose intolerant, it takes a lot to impress me with cereal too, since I am pretty much am stuck eating it dry (yes, I know there is soy milk, but I really don’t like it and the Lactaid pills are super expensive).

The two cereals we tried were the Leapin’ Lemurs and the Penguin Puffs. I’ve got one word for you: Yummy. The Leapin’ Lemurs are peanut butter and chocolate balls and the Penguin Puffs are a crunchy blend of kamut, quinoa and corn. They both are low fat, gluten free, whole grain, and low sodium. Did I mention organic too? This means no synthetic pesticides, no synthetic herbicides, no artificial preservatives or additives, and no irradiation. I love that not only is the front cover of this box just awesome to look at, there is a lesson on the back of the box. I learned that Lemur’s mostly live in Madagascar and they have lost over 80% of their living area to deforestation. They also are being hunted for food and to be people’s pets. You have to love a good learning lesson at breakfast. Another reason to get this cereal is that 1% of their sales is donated to endangered species, habitat conservation, and environmental education for children. It is amazing how together we can all make a difference.

Madison finished off the box of Penguin Puffs in two days. She ate it for breakfast and as a snack. The only reason we even have any of the Leapin’ Lemurs left is because I hide the box from her after breakfast. I even have to admit, I walked around snacking on this too, because it is really that good (I’m eating some as I write this review). Now, I am not a mom who “has” to buy organic for her kids. However, after eating this cereal, I might start doing so. Its good to know that it can taste good and be good for you also.

Now, I can’t keep all this yummy goodness to myself, so I have arranged so two lucky winners can also try this awesome organic cereal! Each winner will receive a box of Leapin’ Lemurs and and Penguin Puffs too! This is only available to the US. Now, here’s all you have to do:

1. Leave a comment on this post. I want to know why you would like to try this or tell me something about any of the other products Nature’s Path makes and looks interesting to you. One comment only please and let me know everything you did for your entries in that comment.
