Yoplait Kids...Get Healthy...Be Active!

I guess I can count myself lucky. My girls are overall pretty healthy eaters. I vowed to start them eating healthy at an early early age, and it’s just progressed as they’ve gotten older. Sure we still have those days were eating is a fight, or finishing their veggies is a struggle, but overall I’m pretty lucky with them, they get all the vitamins they need and thankfully enjoy and love most healthier foods.

Did you know that research has shown that fewer than half of kids aged two to 12 get the calcium they need each day? I can’t imagine that. In our house milk cheese and yogurt is a staple, so at least I know that I can count my kids out of that number. Calcium and Vitamin D are both essential nutrients for building strong bones. A lot of parents have a challenge when it comes to getting their growing kids enough Vitamin D, I know even we struggle with that since Vitamin D is found naturally in very few foods. But there is some help out there. Yoplait for Kids has made it easier to get your children the Vitamin D and calcium that they need in their diet.

My girls both really enjoy Yoplait Kids yogurts. Their favorite is the Vanilla and Banana Dora the Explorer Yogurt. It’s something that’s hard to keep around the house, they’ll eat it ever chance they get. So I’m glad to know that not only are they enjoying something healthy, but they’re also getting the extra calcium and Vitamin D that their growing bodies need!

Yoplait knows that kids not only need a healthy food lifestyle to keep growing, but they also need some physical activity as well. Eating healthy alone isn’t going to give you the strong bones and muscles you need to grow up big, strong and healthy, we all know some physical activity contributes to that as well, which is why Yoplait is encouraging kids to get active as well as eating healthy.

We were lucky enough to receive a great Get Active prize pack from Yoplait along with our money saving coupon. The girls and I cracked it right open and headed outside for some skipping and ball tossing for the afternoon, it was great fun! Make sure after you and your kids enjoy that great tasting Yoplait yogurt, you get outside and are active for a while, playing games, sports or whatever it is you and your family enjoy doing.

You can find our more about Yoplait Kids products by visiting their website www.yoplait.com and you can print out a great money saving coupon HERE for the next time you shop.

Thanks To: My Blog Spark
