Yoplait Kids Yogurt: Nutritious and Delicious {Review & Giveaway}

Yoplait yogurt{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, debijackson!}

Among the many, many things that I love about Big Sister E's preschool, one is all of the great things that she is continually learning. And not just traditional concepts like mastering the ABCs, how to raise your hand and wait to be called on, or why to not wave scissors around while sitting at the art table (although they are learning those, too).

Instead, for a while now I've been hearing about eating healthy and the importance of taking care of your body.

"Milk is healthy for you, Mama. I'm gonna drink milk!"

"Are carrots healthy for you, Mama?" Yes, carrots are very healthy for you. "Oh. I'd like some carrots, please!"

"Broccoli is good for you, it helps you get big and strong!"

Who knew that my 4-year-old was such an expert on nutrition? However, that just meant when I told her that she was going to get to enjoy yogurt, which was already a major favorite of hers, and that it was going to be good for you because it was Yoplait Kids, she nearly bolted out of her seat to go get a spoon!

When it comes to yogurt, Yoplait Kids is an excellent source of both calcium and vitamin D, a good source of protein... and of course it has the delicious taste that kids demand. It also contains 25% less sugar than the leading kids' yogurt, and has no high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. This is one snack that parents and kids can both agree on!

With tasty flavor options, as well as calcium, vitamin D and protein to help build strong bones, Yoplait Kids yogurt is sure to be a popular choice around many households. A great value at just $2.00 for a pack of four, this yogurt comes in three delicious flavors, including Strawberry, Strawberry Banana and Vanilla... and we're big fans of all three.

As an added bit of fun to this tasty snack, kids love finding their favorite friends, like Dora the Explorer, Lightning McQueen and the Disney Princesses, on every cup. Granted, my kids would both eat yogurt at every meal no matter who was shown on it, but it does add a little extra touch of excitement for them when these yogurts are pulled out of the refrigerator.

Overall, there is just something so versatile and convenient about feeding my kids yogurt, that it could end up appearing at just about any meal of the day. Depending on what we're doing, yogurt packs up easily in a cooler or lunchbag and comes along to playdates, picnics, day trips, and more and is always a favorite.

Yoplait Kids just makes it easy to make snack time or mealtime fun with a healthy, portable food that the whole family can enjoy. Look for them at your local grocery store... but before you go, be sure to download and print off a coupon for 50¢ off of the purchase of one four-pack of Yoplait Kids yogurt!

Thanks to the generosity of Yoplait, one person will not only have a tasty treat but a way to bring it along just about anywhere and a whole slew of other fun items to enjoy with it, because...

One lucky person will win a Yoplait Kids prize pack!

Includes: a coupon for Yoplait Kids yogurt,* a foldable travel cooler (to take your yogurt on-the-go), a cool four-piece spoon set, a power magnet picture frame, trendy alphabet-shaped "Kiddie Bands," a great big bounce ball, and a "My First Scavenger Hunt" card game for some after-snack fun.

I'm pretty lucky in that my daughter loves fruit! Her breakfast this morning consisted in large part of chunks of cantaloupe and pineapple. And of course, she loves her Dora yogurt as well -- which is why I'm entering this contest!

My girls eat pretty healthy, but some of their favorite snacks include yogurt, celery with peanut butter and 3 raisins on top (ants on a log), sliced apples with peanut butter to dip them in, they eats lots of fruit and veggies (their favorite being carrots and green beans). I am very blessed to have kids that do not like the "junk food" quick snacks so all of ours are homemade (even our ice cream which we put fruit in).

I have to tell you that my 22 month old was sitting on my lap when I opened the email with this post. He started exclaiming, "Yogurt! yogurt!" It was very cute. Obviously, he loves yogurt. ;) The easiest way to get him to eat variety/healthy stuff is to make it exclusive to mommy and daddy, then all the sudden he wants to eat what we are eating.
