I am always on the look out for the healthiest food options for my kids. In an ideal world they would only eat whole foods with no added sugar but I also love to have some convenience and fun foods with kid appeal in our lives too. I was so happy to learn more about Nature’s Path’s EnviroKidz line when they sent me a few products to try.
I couldn’t believe it when I saw the ingredient list for their cereals. I could pronounce every single word and there are no food additives. Plus it is organic, gluten-free and Non-GMO. They are also vegetarian, whole grain, low fat, wheat-free and trans-fat free. Wow that is a lot of great things for a kids cereal and snack bars! Just look at this easy ingredient list. My girls give the taste a big thumbs up too! The entire EnviroKidz line, which includes the new Choco Chimps and Jungle Munch, is gluten-free so everyone in the family can enjoy breakfast together.
One other thing I love about Nature’s Path’s EnviroKidz line is that it teaches kids about protecting the environment by donating one percent of sales towards endangered species, habitat conservation and environmental education for kids, including 1% For The Planet.
EnviroKidz has a an amazing contest going on that you can enter! They are sending three lucky families on an EnviroTrip to Costa Rica to help save the sea turtles at SEE Turtles, a non-profit wildlife conservation travel operator in the beautiful OSA peninsula. Three lucky winners and their families (three groups of 4 people) will get an all-expense paid trip to Costa Rica in March 2015.
They will spend three days working with Costa Rican organization Latin American Sea Turtles to catch endangered green and hawksbill sea turtles in the Golfo Dulce, a beautiful gulf located alongside the Osa Peninsula. They will help researchers set out nets, measure the turtles, and collect important data before releasing them back to the water. In addition, the winners will participate in a mangrove restoration project, helping to plant two species of mangrove trees that are critical to turtles and other wildlife of the Gulf. Finally, the winners will visit a chocolate farm to see how the world’s favorite treat is made!
Doesn’t that sound like an amazing trip!?! My girls would LOVE this and I am sure your family would too. Ten runner-ups will receive EnviroKidz gift baskets. To enter and find official contest rules, visit www.EnviroKidz.com.
