Help YOP Help You!



Meet Alexandre – my oldest child who turned twelve this summer.  He is not a teen per say at this point in time but already you can see the teenage attitude showing up in him.   Don’t take me wrong, I love my son to bits and pieces but when something is not going as he has planned, we know it quite rapidly.   Alexandre is very useful at home and I think he has the gift of service in his body.   There are days when he wakes up the wrong side of the bed but generally speaking he is very engaged in the family and helps a lot around the house.    Being a soon-to-be teenager also means that he eats more than when he was younger.   To encourage his growing up and good eating habits I always try to have healthy snacks around the house for a mid-morning break from our homeschool.   Yogourt is also part of our regular diet for everyone in the family.  

Do I struggle with getting the kids out of the door sometimes – you bet.   Whether it is for bringing them to swimming lessons or to get to their Awana activities on Thursday evenings, I sometimes have to push them to make sure they are ready to go.   You see the drive to these activities are about 20-30 minutes and we have to make sure we do not forget anything before leaving…  Once someone in the house had forgotten to grab the bag with towels which meant we arrived late to the swimming lesson.  Other times, it’s the water bottles that are left in the entrance of the house.  So yes, even though I plan in advance it happens that we forget things every once in a while. This coming school year, we will also participate to a coop on the same day as the swimming lessons which means we need to be at the location early in the morning with lunches and all that is needed for swimming for nine in the morning.   So it will be interesting to see how we will manage the get out of the house with four kids and a ton of things to bring.  Nevertheless I think we will survive the Wednesdays.   The beauty of homeschooling our kids is that anytime we want we could decide to have a pajama day (though not on Wednesdays or Thursdays…) and we know our snacks will be fresh and cold when it’s time to eat them.

One such snack that it popular for school lunches and snacks is the first drinkable yogurt in Canada – YOP from Yoplait.   This yogurt is completely drinkable and on-the-go in a convenient packaging that will please moms and kids alike.   If you are my age you will recall that YOP imagehas been around for a while and it makes lunch preparation a bit easier.   With the new school year around the corner, why not start it with some help? Help YOP Help You!   The drinkable  yogurt contains essential nutrients like calcium, vitamins D, B12 and B2 as well as magnesium.   It’s a great source of energy for your teen who need to stay awake in class and want to perform in sports as well as in their studies.image

YOP is available in a wide variety of popular flavours - Strawberry, Raspeberry, Blueberry, Strawberry-Banana, Vanilla Tropixs, Banana Tropixs, Peach Tropix, and the new Orange Blast which will be coming soon – and sizes.  However, please note that not all merchants and grocers offer all flavours and sizes.

If your teen like to have something fruity as a snack or drink, I would encourage you – moms – to discover the possibilities that YOP can have for your teen.   Make wise choices this coming year when it comes to packing the lunches and the snacks for your kids.   Scratch the heavy sugary drink and chose something that will help your teen to growth healthy in the process – yogurt.   YOP can help your teen to become a high achievers or just a stay-awakers during the long days at school participating to sports, lessons, student council, volunteering and more.

Tomorrow – August 7th, 2013 – I encourage you to swing by the  Life Made Delicious Facebook Page in order to grab a free coupon (while supplies last) for your teen to try YOP at his/her earliest convenience.  

YOP is available at your favourite grocery store throughout Ontario (and Canada!).
