Sustainable Snacks With Stonyfield Yogurt and StonyFIELDS Playfree Initiative I Hill Country Homestead Texas
The school year comes in like a whirlwind in the final weeks of summer, and before we know it, lists and lunchboxes are ready to be filled! Back to School looks a little different for each child around here, but food quality is always a common theme. We started our homestead to provide a more organic way of life for our children and to teach them the importance of land stewardship and wholesome foods. Whether the children go to class outside of our home or stay here for their lessons, lunchtime looks the same across the board.
Organic protein and calcium are essential items for the children’s daily nutrition intake. Stonyfield Organic pouches, cups, tubes, and smoothies are the perfect solution for after school, sports practices, or homework sessions that last too long! It helps me sleep at night knowing that Stonyfield Organic products are USDA Organic & Non-GMO Project verified, have no toxic persistent pesticides, never any artificial growth hormones, antibiotics, and have no artificial flavors or colors. It’s all organic, just the way it should be. I know when the kids go to grab a Stonyfield Organic product from the refrigerator, they are choosing a tasty snack that’s also better for the environment.
At our house, the kids are likely to be searching for snacks at any time of the day. With so many varying ages, the best thing I can do is keep the refrigerator stocked with organic options from Stonyfield Organic, making it easy to grab and go whether it’s after school, preschool or football practice. One of my favorite times of the day is when break times overlap, and the big kids and the little kids have a few minutes to share a special moment with Stonyfield Organic yogurt out by the barn between sports and chores. The middle schoolers beg for Stonyfield Organic yogurt just as much as the elementary and preschoolers do, and with 25% to 40% Less Sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt, I know everyone is making a good choice. Pouches and smoothies are perfect for on the go in the car, and the good old fashioned yogurt cup is the kids’ favorite way to cool off and refuel. When they take time to share snack time, it just melts me, and it’s so sweet to capture them enjoying it together!
Educating the children to understand the importance of corporate responsibility to our planet is also important. As a family, we support businesses that pay attention to our global footprint and put practices into place to make the world a better place. Choosing to use our dollars to support companies that go above and beyond to make a difference for the planet is one of the best ways we use our consumer voice. When we stock our refrigerator with Stonyfield Organic products for our children to enjoy, we are also supporting a nationwide initiatives led by Stonyfield Organic to restore play spaces and sports fields to organic. Stonyfield Organic is doing this by eliminating the excessive use of herbicides, insecticides, and pesticides in fields and spaces where children play freely and are exposed to these harmful substances.
Our homestead is so passionate about Stonyfield Organic and their hard work! For a limited time with every purchase of any Stonyfield Organic Kids or YoBaby Multipack, Stoneyfield will contribute to their StonyFIELDS initiative helping to make more fields in America organic for the children that play there. StonyFIELDS has already helped bring organic model fields to over 1 million kids and counting, and you can join in on the excitement and StonyFIELDS biggest mission yet!
