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.

Well, are you back to school yet? About half of us around here went back to school earlier this week, and the rest will hit the books bright and early Monday morning! Woot woot! 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!

For instance, check out this recipe for Banana & Honey Minis!

Van’s conducted a survey of 1,000 moms and asked them to describe their mornings.

From the survey, Van’s found that while moms may forfeit “glam for fam,” serving wholesome breakfasts is one area they are not willing to compromise.:

o    58 percent said they rush through their morning hair or makeup routines

o    Nearly 40 percent admit to wearing pajamas to drive their kids to school

o    17 percent apply makeup in the car

o    Nearly 70 percent of moms said they feel better about themselves when they serve a hot breakfast, and they count protein, whole grains and kid-friendliness as the lead factors for making good choices for their families.

With all of that in mind, how about this recipe for Fall Harvest Fruit Waffles?

Van’s offers a variety of options for all types of eaters, from kid-favorite Van’s Minis (with 27 grams of whole grain per serving) to Van’s Gluten-Free Waffles (free of gluten, dairy and egg) and Van’s 8 Whole Grains Waffles (with 7 grams of fiber). For real, you can’t beat that!

So, for all of you, Van’s is hosting a Back-to-School giveaway for a year’s worth of free waffles (52 coupons) and three signed cookbooks from celebrity nutritionist and best-selling author Joy Bauer: “Slim & Scrumptious,” “From Junk Food to Joy Food” and “Food Cures.” All that totals at a value of about $275! Wow!!!

  1. Count me in that 58%! Mornings can be pretty crazy around here, mostly because I’m not really a morning person but I have no choice – I’m a mom, after all. I will not, however, let me son got to school without having breakfast AND leave the house without my eyebrows nicely ‘drawn’.
