Chef Boyardee Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is shelly aka allysmama. Congrats!

Did you know that Chef Boyardee has new whole grain products and a new website they have just launched called Club Mum?  I didn’t either till recently.

Lead by a panel of four mom bloggers and launched by Chef Boyardee, Club Mum is a new online community for moms to share experiences, ideas and tips around how to get the “good stuff” in their kids. The website will include editorial and video content on a broad range of topics, such as getting more vegetables into kids’ diets, keeping kids active during winter weather, packing nutritious lunches and encouraging philanthropy among the whole family.

Their new whole grain product launch goes hand in hand with this.    Now, I already loved that a can of Chef Boyardee counts as a serving of vegetables.  However, the whole grain aspect just makes it all the better.  I recently tried the Whole Grain Lasagna.  I’ll be honest — I couldn’t tell the difference between the whole grain and the regular lasagna.  They tasted exactly the same!  If you like Chef Boyardee products, you will love their new whole grain products.

Since my family and I enjoyed these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to win a Chef Boyardee Prize Pack.  In it is a lunch box and 3 of the Chef Boyardee products!  Here’s what you need to do:

Litter Free Lunch

With the school year right upon us, it’s time to start thinking about school lunches. I know, for me, there is nothing worse than the feeling that your packing your kids lunches in brown paper bags every day that they are throwing away. Have no fear though — Litter Free Lunch is here. At Litter Free Lunch, you are able to get lunch bags, sandwich bags, snack bags, and even cloth napkins. You kids can literally go litter free at lunch.

Madison tried one of these bags out last year. She had snack time every day (and most of the time ate hot lunch so we didn’t need it for that). However, for snack time, I sent a snack and juice with her every day. I was able to use one of their bags instead of a brown paper bag, and it held up! Plus, I was able to show Madison (my 6 yr old) about reusing and recycling. I love that most of their products come in multiple colors, so there is something for everyone out there.

If you are trying to make your life more green, I recommend checking out Litter Free Lunch.  Just by NOT brown bagging it, you can help save the environment.
