Give your kids healthier choices with Earthbound Farm this school year! (plus a contest)

It can be a challenge to send healthy options in our kid's lunches, whether it is to school, or for a picnic lunch. I know it can be hard to send fruits that are easy to eat (like cut up) and trying to keep them fresh! I was recently sent some samples from Earthbound Farm, and these products are not only healthy, but they stay fresh and taste super! From the samples, I had the baby carrots and the apple slices. I think it is great that Earthbound Farms offers individually wrapped apples and carrots in a single serving bag. This is so convenient and your child has their own bag of goodies. I was surprised that the apples and carrots stayed fresh, and didn't lose the coloring. The carrots and the apples were Very fresh, and crunchy! Best of all, my kids had no complaints when I handed them their "healthier" part of their picnic lunch. I am a big promoter of the Earthbound Farms Organic products. Our family buys the Spinach and Mixed salads all the time~ weekly, in fact, and we love the quality leaves! Now, you can get individual salads for when you are headed to the office, or a day trip. It sure is better than picking up a fast food meal, and healthier, too!
These lunch options are certified organic, fresh and ready to drop in a bag, bento box, tote or briefcase:
Organic Apple Slices – These fresh, crunchy apple slices are the perfect size and ready to eat. (5 2oz bags for $3.99)
Organic Mini-Peeled Carrots snack pack – (10 2oz bags for $2.99)
Organic Carrot Dippers with Ranch Dressing – This perfect combination will help sneak in that serving of veggies at lunch (3 packs for $2.89)
Grab & Go Salads: Caesar Salad, Mixed Baby Greens or Baby Spinach Kits ($3.69 a box and includes salad, dressing, topping, fork and the clamshell package can be used as a bowl)
Organic Raisin snack packs – A sweet treat in a little box (6 1.5oz boxes for $2.99)
I would highly suggest picking up the Earthbound Farms certified organic lunch options at your grocery store. These products are great for you and your kids! These would make a great "after school snack" for your kids, too!
Earthbound Farms has recently launched a web-based contest seeking quotes from children for the inside of its clamshell salad labels. Kids will be encouraged to submit quotes thanking those who purchase organic for helping protect the future. If you’re interested in posting this contest on your site for your readers participation please let me know.

For each child’s quote that is chosen, they have the opportunity to win:
1. A $500 US Savings Bond for your child’s future education
3. Winning quotes will appear on the back of our new salad labels and on the Earthbound Farm website!
They have switched to post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic for their salad containers, and they are designing new labels that carry the PCR symbol. Winning quotes will appear on the back of those labels, and on their website, too. They will select a new winner every month through the end of 2009!
To enter the contest, visit Earthbound Farms Kids quote contest
This contest is open to legal US residents who submit their entry with the permission of their parent or guardian, and who are 17 years of age or under at that time. Winning quotes will be identified by first name, age, and city/state on the Earthbound Farm website and on package labels. Parents or guardians must provide their name, e-mail address and daytime phone number in case their child’s entry is a winner. Either adult or child must provide their Social Security Number to receive their prize and register their bond.
