Anyone still out there? It's Give Away Time!

UPDATE- I AM MOVING THE GIVE AWAY DEADLINE DATE BECAUSE THE EARLY STAGES OF LABOR ARE MOVING ALONG! I'M NOT SURE IF I'LL STILL BE PREGNANT ON MONDAY. NEW DEADLINE TIME IS FRIDAY, 1/21/11 AT 12PM AZ TIME!

Well, if you happen to still be checking in on this neglected blog of mine, you are in luck! I am running a quick give away for all you loyal readers!
 When it comes to starting off your day right, a new survey from Kix found that 84 percent of parents turn to cereal with milk for a quick and healthy breakfast.

Cereal is one of the healthiest breakfast choices parents can make. Ready-to-eat cereal has fewer calories than almost any other common breakfast option, while also being nutrient-dense and convenient. In addition, cereal eaters consume less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters.

With the same great taste kids have loved for more than 70 years, Kix makes it easy to serve your family a simple and healthy breakfast! Whether you choose to serve Original Kix or Honey Kix, you can be sure that your kids are getting a wholesome food with nutrients they need to grow.

The “Kid-Tested Mother-Approved®
”cereal is made with whole grain corn and is an excellent source of iron. It also is a good source of calcium, fiber, and Vitamins C and D. Original Kix has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

To find out more, visit the recently launched Kix website,
www.KixCereal.com, featuring background on the history of Kix, nutritional content, and special offers.

The lucky winner of this give away will receive a Kix “Kid-Tested, Mother-Approved” prize pack including a 24-piece counting-themed floor puzzle (super cute! - My 2 year old LOVES this puzzle), fun learn-to-count flashcards (again, super cute!), a sippy cup (I am not impressed at all - the first thing my 2 year old did was flip the cup over and dump the milk out on the floor. Fabulous.), a portable snack container (good to throw in the diaper bag), and a box each of Original Kix and Honey Kix cereals (delicious!).


Here's how to enter:
Leave a comment telling us what "go-to" cereal you feed your kids on busy mornings. Do you have a sugar limit (like 5 grams per serving) on the cereal you are willing to feed your kids?

And if you want an additional chance to enter...
I am due with my baby girl next Thursday, January 27th and she needs a name! I am a big believer in looking at babies before naming them, but I need some suggestions. As a reference, my first daughter is named Maddie. Here are the first names I like (in order of my preference) - Kate (not Katelyn or Katherine - just Kate), Macey, and Allie. I need middle names! I like Kate Chevelle (my husband is a classic car maniac) or Kate Nicole (my twin sister's middle name is Nicole), but I am open to other suggestions - including new first names I may not have thought of.

So, leave a comment telling me what I should name my new baby girl!
The Rules...
1. Two comments/entries per person (each comment must include your email address!)
2. Give away is open to US and Canadian residents ONLY.
3. Give away will close on Monday, January 24th at 9am AZ time. FRIDAY, 1/21/11 AT 12PM AZ TIME. UPDATED GIVE AWAY TIME DUE TO IMPENDING BIRTH!
4. The winner will be selected via random.org and the winner will be contacted by email. The winner will have 24 hours to claim their prize.

Disclosure: I was given a Kix “Kid-Tested, Mother-Approved” prize pack including to facilitate the review of this product. Thanks to Kix through MyBlogSpark for providing the prize pack for the review and sponsoring the giveaway for one Arizona Savings reader.  All opinions expressed are my own and no other compensation was received.

Good luck!

  2. No sugar limit in my house, but I try to go for something I feel is a "healthier" type of cereal. Usually my go-to cereal is Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Cinnamon Life. My kids are huge Cinnamon lovers!!! (They inherited from hubby)

  13. Wish I could help with the name! I'm also pregnant and don't have a girl name, but I'm leaning towards Payton...although my husband is a little less enthused. :)

  14. I have a Katherine who is 8. I went with a long name because all my kids have them. But, I hate Kathy so she is Katie. I figure when she's older she will go by Kate.

  16. My kids like all kinds of cereal, especially if I got it on sale or free. LOL They like Trix and Cinnamon toast crunch. I don't worry about the sugars in it, but i do make sure they eat a snack earlier in the day if they have a high sugary cereal. They have never tried Kix and I haven't had it in quite awhile. We'd love to try it!

  25. I know I only get 2 entries, but i thought of another name.... Kate Harper

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like the names you are considering & leaning more toward Kate or Macey. I'm bad with middle names, my girls won't have them :p
    But... a few other names I like are Berlin & London (I know, there is a theme there, but I wouldn't suggest using them both... just one).

  27. Well if Elliot was a girl... I liked Reese Kelly

  31. Kate Nicole works because of the "sound." It is the alliteration--repetition of the "k" sound in "Kate" and "Nicole"--that makes the name "sound" beautiful.
