I felt instant excitement when learning of an upcoming Kinder® Mom Ambassador campaign hosted by Mom Central Canada! I mean, who doesn’t love Kinder® eggs? Between the milky chocolate and surprise toy, it's the perfect treat! Well, I was jumping for joy when I received confirmation that I have been chosen to be a Kinder® Mom!
As much as I believe that healthy eating habits are essential in raising healthy children, I also believe that happiness is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. This means that while I’m making sure that my boys eat all of their veggies with dinner 7 nights a week, there is room for an ice cream cone on a warm evening, or a bowl of parmesan popcorn during movie night. Kinder’s® nut-free chocolate is made with high-quality cocoa and other quality ingredients, giving it a permanent place in our treat selection at home!
I like to follow the old adage “everything in moderation” when treating my boys. Kinder® Surprise® eggs are a perfect snack size, not too much and not too little. And the excitement from the toy inside never leaves them asking for more chocolate!
As a Kinder® Mom Ambassador, the first item on my agenda is to announce the official re-launch of Kinder® Surprise® in Canada! Although summer is quickly coming to a close *tear*, there is still time for camping trips, cottage visits, and picnics under the sun. Bringing Kinder® Surprise® along can make these special moments even more special. Kinder® has been celebrating small wins and creating moments of joy for Canadian families for over 30 years!
Now, onto my second agenda item – THE TOYS!!! With the re-launch of Kinder® Surprise® in Canada comes an all-new 2012 Toy Collection featuring over 70 new toys! I checked out the Kinder® Canada Facebook page to view samples from the new collection. I think my boys would love the 22cm tall Safari Giants (how does Kinder® do it???), inflatable Aniballoons, and Emoty Monkeys stamps! Make sure to ‘like’ Kinder® Canada on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/KinderCanada and look out for the toy collection, as well as family friendly discussions run by Kinder® Canada.
I also encourage you to visit the Kinder® Canada website at http://haveyouplayedtoday.ca/ for nutritional & product information. You will also find some handy tabs such as Ideas For Creative Playtime, Playful Events Near You, and Development Interests For Parents.
For my first ‘small win’ moment as a Kinder® Mom, I plan to surprise Big-A on his first day of Grade 1 with a Kinder® Surprise® in his backpack! I can imagine the smile on his face when he sees it J And as I have already mentioned, Kinder® Surprise® is nut-free making it an ideal treat for school. I must also note that the FAQ portion of the Kinder® website confirms that their chocolate is gluten free.
Whether you’re adding to an already special occasion or treating ‘just because’, Kinder® Surprise® will guarantee a big smile and an even bigger hug from your little ones.
