My girls are obsessed with these. I try to stay away from packaged products as much as possible, and haven’t bought fruit snacks in years. I’ve seen recipes for homemade gummies made with fruit pectin, but this is a great way to get more of a nutritional punch in every little bite! These are great for packing in school lunches (or, you know, my work lunch?)!
But first, let me tell you about some really cool things I’m giving away this week!
…speaking of school lunches, how cute are these Funkins Reusable Cloth Napkins?!
I am a huge fan of the flower one–they’re really strong and pretty! I’ve washed them several times and they show no signs of fading, and can’t wait to put the Halloween one in my girl’s lunch bag on Halloween!
I’ve been packing my own lunch for years now (ok I lie…my husband is AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING and packs my lunch EVERY day. And makes my breakfast.). Not only is it cheaper, but it’s [usually] much healthier! My work purchased a Keurig for our department and so I was really excited when I got a variety pack from Prospect Tea Co! I used to just bring tea bags to work for an afternoon pick-me-up, but these things are amazing! Check this out. I used the Keurig and put in the Himalayan Spring cup and walked back to my desk. My coworker hunted me down and demanded to know what smelled SO good! Aha! It’s that good.
I was amazed at how ENORMOUS these Lambie & Me swaddle blankets are! My little man doesn’t like to be swaddled any more (tear tear), but I love laying these down for him to do tummy time on. The colors are beautiful and hold together well. The blanket is muslin, but still very soft.
And finally, these are my FAVORITE measuring spoons! I don’t know what it is about our house, but the measuring spoons are always dirty (we seriously have like 5 different stacks of ’em!) and in the dishwasher. Natizo Stainless Steel measuring spoons are my favorite to use when baking because they don’t stain and they clean very easily since they’re made of stainless steel.
You can enter to win one of these in the rafflecopter below! Make sure you let me know in the comments what you think!
