Now that a new school year is underway, I thought it would be the perfect time to overhaul the way my family eats. It's not that we eat unhealthily, but I would really like to replace some of the food we eat now with organic, non-GMO foods. That means finding organic brands to feed my family that taste GOOD. I have a six-year-old and a two-year-old at home and they aren't signing off on anything that isn't tasty.
My family had the opportunity to try out some Nature's Path Envirokidz goodies and we instantly fell in love. Envirokidz has a range of cereals and bars more that are all gluten-free, vegetarian, whole grain, low fat, wheat-free and trans-fat free. So, if you have a kiddo or family member who can't have gluten, you can feed them the same cereal or snack as everyone else! I'm partial to the Lemur Peanut Chocolate Drizzle Crispy Rice Bars myself. And my lil' dude agrees! He calls it his special chocolate bar.
Now that you've heard about my family's favorite new treats, I have some fun news for you...Envirokidz is hosting a very exciting contest! They are sending three families on a trip to Costa Rica to help save the sea turtles. These families will visit SEE Turtles, a non-profit wildlife conservation travel operator in the OSA peninsula.
The contest winners and their families (three groups of 4 people) will get an all-expense paid trip to Costa Rica in March of 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 also 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 by helping to plant two species of mangrove trees that are critically important to turtles and other wildlife. AND the winners will get to visit a chocolate farm to see how the world’s favorite treat is made! The winning doesn't end there though...Ten lucky runner-ups will receive EnviroKidz gift baskets.
