I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stonyfield. I received coupons to facilitate my shopping trip and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Up until last year my husband and I had never really read the ingredients in foods. I know, that's a really bad habit, but we just trusted that what was being sold in the grocery stores was safe to eat. Another huge mistake right there. There are hidden ingredients in so many different foods that it's scary. And most of them are hidden as bigger words that no one would think twice about. Like the many different words for sugar. I've read some products with four different words for sugar so you can only imagine how unhealthy that product was!
After my husband and I did a lot of research of foods and what's really in them, we have gone almost completely organic. We also no longer buy meats at all at the grocery store. We have our organic and kosher meats shipped to us at home. And the actual food we buy at the grocery store is organic and has no high fructose corn syrup at all.
Now if you don't read ingredients very often, you'll be shocked to see just how many items have high fructose corn syrup in them. Even down to bread which is crazy! So when it came to buying Mary her favorite types of foods, we started having a problem actually finding them without high fructose corn syrup regardless of the brand.
But that's not a problem with Mary's yogurt anymore because we have discovered Stonyfield yogurt! Since Stonyfield yogurt has no high fructose corn syrup in it and it's completely organic, Mary can have as much as she likes! And since it comes in pouches too, she can take it in the car on to go without spilling it!
Mary's personal favorite flavor is the Strawberry and she can't seem to get enough of them either. Have your kids ever tried Stonyfield? If they haven't, check out their site and see if any products are near you.
