Spring Notes…

Heather —  April 12, 2010

So far, April has been a whirlwind of…Spring Breaking and  Easter Celebrating! Sports Starting Up. Spring Cleaning. Getting review products that make me totally change my household…(going organic is on the menu)

I am sitting here watching as my mountains turn green almost overnight. This is my first Spring here in the Blueridge Mountains….and …WOW! I am in a tank top,  sunburned (whoops) wishing I was one of those people who actually can function on lack of sleep–because there are soooo many good things to do!

Well, today I am taking a deep breath and getting some planning and reviewing done…but missing family–thanks, Mom & Dad for a fun Easter!

I have several reviews and giveaways to do…a ballerina birthday coming up…

What good things do y’all have on your agenda?

Thank to everyone who commented, and thanks to Peter Rabbit Organics for sponsoring the giveaway!

What a treat! These Peter Rabbit Organic Fruit Pouches are absolutely marvelous–and PERFECT to put into Easter Baskets!

In our family, we are now trying to make the shift to using mainly organic products. I expected this change to be difficult, but instead I am finding there are many great options out there and feeding your children organic food is MUCH easier than I anticipated!

The Peter Rabbit Pouches are 100% organic, 100% fruit snack fruit pouches that can be eaten on the go…or relaxing at home. They are being sold for babies six months and up and children, but…shhhh… I love these also! A quick healthy sweet snack:) My 4 year old says the Strawberry and Banana is the best.

so cute, so healthy!

so cute, so healthy!

Right now they come in three fruit varieties, Strawberry and Banana, Mango, Banana and Orange and Apple and Grape.

To me, they taste like a fruit puree. They have an anti-swallow cap and you can also re-close the cap—if your child needs just a bit, reclose and save for later—I think that is genius…you do not need a spoon or anything and can stick them in your purse or baby bag.

And, using them saves me a lot of worry about sugar and preservatives.

I recently saw some in my local Starbucks. You can also get them at select Whole Foods Markets and independent natural food stores in a number of regions across the country. All three flavors are also on Amazon.com. See their website for lots more information on where to buy.

One lucky reader will win a Sampler Pack of Peter Rabbit Organic Snack Pouches! (10 pouch case of mixed flavors).
