Van’s Back to School Giveaway – with Joy Bauer!

Please Note: This giveaway was facilitated by Van’s Foods. I was not compensated for this post but did receive free product samples and all opinions are my own.

And along those lines, I am SO excited to partner with Van’s to celebrate modern moms and help make their lives a little easier, just in time for back-to-school!

And what is one of the most important keys to a successful back to school routine? Breakfast!

But breakfast doesn’t have to be stressful. Quick, wholesome options like Van’s waffles offer protein and whole grains that are so delicious moms feel great about serving them and kids love eating them!

Van’s Giveaway for Celiac Awareness Month!

It’s no secret to anyone who follows this blog that I have Celiac Disease. And, if you’ve been around long enough, you know that Van’s is one of my favorite brands of gluten-free foods! They really were a lifesaver for me when I was first diagnosed – and they’re still extremely helpful…most recently in the throes of morning sickness!

So the fact that May is Celiac Awareness Month makes it the perfect time to share food options for those with gluten sensitivity! And that’s exactly what Van’s is doing, offering an opportunity to try its NEW gluten-free granola and snack bars, and get in on a giveaway event valued at more than $150!

Van’s, a leader in wholesome new snacks sure to satisfy the kid in everyone, kicks off summer with two new snack bars (Banana Bread and Gramwich- a chocolate stuffed graham cracker sandwich) and Soft-Baked Whole Grain Granola Clusters in Double Chocolate and Banana Nut.

Van’s decadent, bite-sized gluten-free granola – perfect for family road trips, an easy addition to breakfast or anytime on the go – are a soft and chewy portable snack perfect with frozen or Greek yogurt or by the handful when a craving hits. The Double Chocolate and Banana Nut Granola is baked with delicious, gluten-free, whole grain oats and offer 12-14 grams of whole grains per serving – with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
