Go Organically Fruit Snacks - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month.  To encourage kids to participate, Go Organically wants to inspire those of all ages to get active and go outside this spring.

Spring outdoor activity ideas from Go Organically®Organic Fruit Snacks

Ahhh, spring. Warmer weather, flowers in bloom, and a chance to rediscover the joys of the great outdoors after several months of hibernation (and the occasional binge-watch). Need another reason to get moving? May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month—which makes it the perfect time to renew your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle while inspiring your kids to do the same.
Studies show that kids need 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. So lace up those sneakers, stretch out those limbs, and head outdoors to try one of these fun-filled family activity ideas from Go Organically® Organic Fruit Snacks.

1.       Gear Up

Make sports equipment easily accessible so you'll be more likely to use it. Park bicycles near the front of your garage, or keep scooters in the mudroom to inspire impromptu usage. Stash a Frisbee or soccer ball in your car for pick-up games, or "catch up" on the day while playing a quick game of catch in the evenings. The idea is to integrate activity into your everyday life so it becomes a part of your routine.

2.       Play Nature Bingo

Which family member has an eagle eye for spotting things like squirrels, ant hills or pine cones? To find out, head to your local park—or simply your own backyard—and play an active yet educational game of Nature Bingo. Print out a free online template (we like these for their earthy feel) and try to find as many items as you can, marking off each square as you go. Be sure to fuel your adventure with fun snacks for kids and adults, including trail mix, fruit, and our favorite grab & go treat, Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks.

3.       Embrace Old School Games

When we were kids, it was all about classic backyard games like Freeze Tag, Simon Says and Hide-and-Seek. Our favorite? Red Light/Green Light. One child acts as the "stoplight" and stands with his or her back to the crowd across the yard from the other kids. When the stoplight shouts "green light," the kids move forward and try to be the first to touch the stoplight. At any point, the stoplight may shout "red light!" and turn around. If any of the players are caught moving, they're out.

4.       Take a Walk

It sounds so simple, but sometimes it's nice to get back to basics with regular family walks. Take the dog out together in the morning instead of making it a one-man job. Or work off dinner by hitting the pavement as a family for a sunset stroll. It's a great way to discover your surroundings, get to know your neighbors, and enjoy quality time as a family while burning off energy. We always bring along reusable water bottles and easy-to-tote Go Organically kids organic snacks to keep everyone smiling.
Most anyone with teens knows what it's like to keep food in the house.  As soon as my kids are in the house from school or sports, they are scouring the pantry for a snack.  And then they're back five minutes later for another snack.

I'll be honest with you and admit that I keep junk food in my home.  There's not a lot of it, but it's there.  I also have healthy snacks on hand.  And my kids have no problem going to either one.

Go Organically Fruit Snacks are a brand of GMO-free fruit snacks available in three varieties, all of which are USDA-certified organic, made with real fruit purées and real fruit juices. These treats include 100% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C and are a good source of Vitamins A and E. Go Organically® Fruit Snacks are also gluten-free, preservative-free and made with natural flavors and colors from natural sources.  The three varieties available are Tropical, Mixed Berry, and Fruit Medley.

Fruit snacks are a favorite among my teens, and the box of Tropical fruit snacks I received for review didn't last long at all.  There are eight individually wrapped snack pouches to a box.  Go Organically Fruit Snacks have a soft texture and don't contain a weird aftertaste.  I appreciate that they are comparable in taste to other brand name fruit snacks, yet are somewhat superior because they are certified organic and made with real juices and purees.  The kids like them, and I can see myself purchasing some in the future for the times when they want to grab a tasty treat.
Win It!

One person will win two boxes of Go Organically Fruit Snacks.
