As a mom of five, I find life often feels like it’s permanently set to fast-forward. Even on slower, summer days when we’re all at home, there always seems to be 27 tussles to break up, 58 meals and snacks to provide, and 105 questions to answer, all before noon. The mamas out there can probably relate. Life with little ones is hectic, but it’s also magical and so fun to watch them explore their interests, find their passions, and figure out who they’re going to be in this vast, option-filled world.
On both the at-home and the less-slow days, where we’re running from school to practice and errands galore, I’ve found it’s imperative to have healthy snacks on hand that nourish their little bodies and taste good, too. My kids LOVE activities — whether it’s dancing, crafting, hiking, playing at the park, or playing sports, they’re on-the-go kiddos (who also happen to keep me on my toes, too!).
We’ve found that wholesome snacks with basic ingredients are the most helpful to fuel our busy life, and Horizon Organic has been a huge part of keeping us fed well. Horizon milk boxes and cheese sticks are especially easy to pack and travel with so they can provide my crew the goodness of on-the-go organic protein. They can go everywhere active kids go — we just pack them in lunchboxes, take them in the car on our way to the next thing, bring them to the park, or enjoy them after a big game.
I’m so pleased to be partnering with Horizon Organic today to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of America! We’ve been enjoying their milk boxes and cheese sticks for years, and they’re running a special #HorizonConfiDANCE campaign this summer to help BBBS recruit, train, and support new mentoring matches to change the lives of children facing adversity. More than 2 million youth have been helped and supported by BBBS over the last decade! I just love their mission in helping kids who need it the most.
I’m sharing my family’s #HorizonConfiDANCE fun dancing video to support the cause, and I hope you’ll consider participating, too! For every dance shared on Instagram or Facebook by September 30th, Horizon Organic will give $5 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, up to $200k. Just use #HorizonConfiDANCE.
Just like me and my family, Horizon believes that REAL food matters, and special experiences with family can change lives. I hope you feel encouraged to have fun with your little ones, share your confiDANCE video to support this wonderful cause, and power your kids up with the goodness of protein, vitamins, and calcium without artificial colors or flavors. I can’t wait to see your videos on Facebook and the ‘Gram!
