Congrats to our winners: Alpa, Amy and Brigette
Being that the first official day of summer is tomorrow that can only mean ONE thing summer camp is right around the corner and so is the dilemma ofÂ packing snacks and lunch…there are so many choices it is literally impossible to decide which are the best yogurts, juice boxes and treats to pack along! well I’ve done a bit of taste testing and here is one that gets both my and my kids fervent thumbs up!
Parents concerned about finding healthy, delicious snacks for their kids â€“ and those who have children with allergies â€“ take note: Sunrise Soya Foods, Canadaâ€™s leader in traditional and innovative tofu and soy products, is pleased to announce the U.S. launch of Super Squeezies Omega-3 DHA pudding dessert tubes.
Bottom line: kids will love Super Squeezies because theyâ€™re delicious.Â Parents love them because they are a healthy alternative to other desserts.Â Each tube contains a vegetarian source of Omega-3 DHA, which is important for brain, eye and heart health.â€
Â These non-dairy treats are the perfect choice for kids with food allergies or intolerances as well as active children on the go. They make a great chilled snack.Â Parents can freeze Super Squeezies and pack them frozen in their childâ€™s lunch box. Sold at a suggested retail price of $3.99 for a box of eight tubes,Â they can be found in the refrigerated soy sections of local grocery stores and supermarkets in Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey.
