Hooray for back-to-school season! Some of you are gearing up to send a little to school for the very first time, some are changing schools and some are moving on up. We are enjoying our last official weeks of summer as we prepare for the first days of school. Of course, we have spotted the latest back-to-school trends and are not only sharing them with you but also bringing you a fabulous giveaway as well!
To get the year started and continued on the right foot (pun intended), we are counting on pediped for not only the latest in on-trend footwear, but for their quality and durability. They are just what us savvy mamas are counting on. Our kids need shoes that can stand up to lots of time on the playground, and pediped is always up for the challenge. I love that many styles are machine-washable. Moms know that pediped footwear is a smart choice for parents concerned with the long-term development of their children's feet, and has been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance for creating shoes that promote healthy foot development. Styles that fit my kids well, are good for their feet, and that they want to wear? Yes, pediped gets an A+ from this mama.
One thing that I stress about the most as a mama is how to feed my kids well, so that they are getting what they need to keep up their energy level, especially while on-the-go. My children (like most!) are involved in a myriad of after-school activities, and I am always searching for a quick snack that is made well, tasty and convenient.
I hit the trifecta with MadeGood tasty snacks. Not only does MadeGood offer four varieties of granola bars, but they have crispy squares (a healthier treat) and granola minis which are great for my youngest (or to place on top on yogurt). All MadeGood snacks are made in a dedicated peanut and tree nut free facility, (making them great for back to school), allergy friendly, gluten-free, organic, non-GMO verified, vegan and even contain nutrients found in one serving of vegetables. If that doesn't make them live up to their MadeGood name, I don't what would! Delicious, nutritious and convenient--a happy trio to satisfy my family, whether it be for a quick and easy breakfast, part of a healthier lunch or a convenient, yummy snack on-the-go.
One of the biggest trends, and something constantly on the minds of moms, is whether or not our children are properly hydrated. It has been proven time and time again that the only thing children need to stay hydrated is water.

Sounds easy enough, right? But how much water do they need per day? How do we get them to drink it? Well, Gululu has the answer. This is the world's first interactive water bottle that keeps kids hydrated. Gululu helps children stay hydrated by caring for a virtual pet (my son picked a ninja turtle). As kids drink more water from Gululu, their chosen virtual pets grow and make friends. Parents stay informed of their children's progress through a connected app. Not only does Gululu help kids stay hydrated, but they've partnered with Generosity.org, and for every Gululu bottle purchased, a child in a developing country will be provided with clean drinking water for life. All Momtrends' readers can save 15% on their Gululu purchase from now until the end of September, by using code : IUSC5YM9.
