  • Slammers Snacks: My kids’ new favorite snack + A Giveaway (2 Winners!)

    Slammers Snacks | Chief Family Officer

    With two boys who play multiple sports year-round, I feel like we’re always on the go. That’s not a bad thing – my boys are super active, and the sports are a great outlet for their energy.

    But sometimes we have to dash from one place to another with very little time for a snack.

    So when the folks at Slammers Snacks asked if we wanted to try their tasty, superfood Greek yogurt, I readily agreed. I love that their snacks are designed to fuel kids with organic fruits and vegetables, plus they’re portable, can be enjoyed frozen, cold, or at room temperature, and leave no crumbs in my car!

    Slammers Snacks have no added sugar, contain no artificial ingredients, and contain no nuts or gluten. Since one of my boys is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts, you know that last one is a huge deal for me.

    The very best thing about Slammer Snacks, though, is that my kids love them! They downed four boxes (16 pouches!) in the first two days – and they loved all of the flavors equally. I tucked away the rest of the boxes so the boys don’t get tired of them – I bring them out on those days when we really are short on time. I love being able to give them a healthy snack they enjoy and we’re all happy, even though we’re rushing around from one place to another. 😀

    You can buy Slammers Snacks at Target, Ralphs, Vons, Safeway, Publix and H.E.B. stores.

    WIN IT!

    Giveaway: LEGO FRIENDS: Girlz 4 Life Blu-ray

    Warner Bros. Home Video provided me with some of the materials I used in this Blog Post/Giveaway. All opinions are my own. You can read CFO’s full disclosure here.

    Lego Friends Giveaway | Chief Family Officer

    As a parent, I really love LEGO building toys because they foster creativity, fine motor skills and – if your child is following the directions – the ability to read and follow directions! (Note: that does not translate to the ability to follow directions from a parent.)

    And as a mom to two boys, I love having an excuse to check out the cute toys in the LEGO Friends section. In fact, the LEGO Friends section has become my go-to area whenever I’m buying a gift for a girl! So I’m happy to share the new LEGO Friends movie with you:

    True Friendship in the Glamorous World of Pop!

    Join Olivia, Stephanie, Emma, Mia and Andrea, as they learn about friendship, fame and pop star fun in Heartlake City.

    The girls’ friendships are tested when mega pop star Livi comes to Heartlake City. When our friends’ hit song “Girlz” is stolen by Livi’s manager, it’s time for a cunning plan.

    As the girls try to tell Livi the truth about her latest hit single, they all learn that fame isn’t everything and sometimes friendship is the most precious thing in the world.

    Own LEGO® FRIENDS: GIRLZ 4 LIFE on digital HD 1/19 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD 2/2

    For some extra fun, interact with the app below to hear music from the movie, sing along, download an activity pack, and more!
