Kid Loved, Parent Approved: A Kellogg's Giveaway For Back To School

September is here, and although it's sad saying goodbye to summer, I'm definitely looking forward to getting back into the routine of fall—and I think the kids are ready, too. With school just days away, it's time to start thinking about quick and healthy breakfast and snack ideas that'll get everyone out the door quickly—and snacks that'll keep the children satisfied throughout the day.

Kellogg's is always a great idea in the morning—and Rice Krispies is a cereal I loved as a child, and still do—so do my boys.

Kellogg Canada has just come out with some tasty and healthy Nutri-Grain Fruit and Nut Medley Bars that are perfect snacks to eat after school on the way to the dozens of after-school activities. (I save these bars for the kids for after school because they contain nuts. I also make sure to have some in my purse for my hectic days, too, when I'm always on the go.) These bars are packed with real fruits and nuts, and whole grain gluten-free oats, and come in two flavours: Orchard Cherries and Almonds and Harvest Blueberries and Mixed Nuts. 

Another great snack option for kids to enjoy during school hours is the Rice Krispies Squares—now made with brown rice. (A healthier option, and kids won't even know the difference). Easy and healthy snack options make the mornings go by so much easier, and I know my boys will be happy with what I pack for them.

As a Kellogg Ambassador, I'm giving away a great package filled with these healthy snacks and an awesome backpack perfect for any child heading back to school.




To win this package, just leave me a comment below telling me why you're looking forward to fall. I'll pick a winner randomly on September 12th.

Good Luck with back-to-school!

As much as I love summer's freedom, fall is the cozy season: sweaters, apple and pumpkin everything, a crispness to the air, fires. So lovely! I can dig it.

I like the fall because of cooler weather. We are building a tiny house ourselves and it was too hot to work on it. Either too hot or raining. Now we have cooler weather and are working on it. Patty wright

I am looking forward to fall and planting things that will come up in the SPRING!!! As well I was reading that fall is the best time to plant some shrubs!! I've been doing lots of walking and seeing others yards and I want something under the kitchen window but not something that will grow so huge that it blocks it!!
