Simply Go-Gurt

I like to provide an assortment of healthy snack options for my kids. I have been very fortunate that my kids love fruits and vegetables, but they also like treats. Yogurt is one of those treats - something that they enjoy that I can feel good about giving them. Recently, we had a chance to try Simply… Go-Gurt. It is made from "simple ingredients and contains no high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors or flavors. Each convenient portable yogurt tube contains a good source of calcium and vitamin D. Simply stated, Simply… Go-Gurt is a good-for-you, low fat yogurt snack that you can feel good about giving to your kids". New Simply… Go-Gurt is available in two flavors, Strawberry and Mixed Berry.

At our house, we like to enjoy our Go-Gurt two ways - refrigerated and frozen. One advantage of frozen is that the yogurt is less messy - trust me, my three year old is able to squeeze juice boxes/pouches and tube yogurt in just the right way to create a mess - when it is frozen, this doesn't happen. When we freeze it, the kids think of it as a popsicle - only it is one that is packed with more nutrients than the standard popsicle. Freezing them also makes them very easy to pack in my son's lunch or for his school day snack. By lunch or snack time, the yogurt is not fully frozen, but it is still cold and allows him a treat at school. I also like to freeze them and pack them in the cooler for road trips. It gives us an easy to consume snack on the road.



The link above is loaded with great tips and 30 free coupons. The first 30 readers who click on the “Try It Free” tab will receive a coupon for a free package of Simply…Go-Gurt!* Once the 30 coupons are claimed, you will still be able to print a coupon to save $1.10 off Simply... Go-Gurt.

*This coupon offer for free Simply… Go-Gurt is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, Nevada, North Dakota and Tennessee.

I would love to win this! We will be going on vacation quite soon! My kids fav snacks are fruit, yogurt(I rarely buy go-gurt because of the cost but they think that's the best;), & cheese sticks.
