YoBaby Party

*Sponsored post for Stonyfield.

I’m no expert on entertaining.  But if the guests feel welcome, there’s something fun to do, and the food is scrumptious, I’d call it a successful party.  We had a casual good time when a few other moms and kids dropped in for our YoBaby sampling party.

The folks at Stonyfield provided plenty of free YoBaby organic yogurt in vanilla as well as the YoBaby Meals to sample.  Our youngest guest proudly sported his yogurt mustache!

YoToddler and YoKids  offered even more varieties, including the new YoKids Greek that my daughter likes best in strawberry.

For moms, I used plain Stonyfield yogurt to whip up some New Moms Power House Smoothies and Blueberry Yogurt Muffins.

Farm life coloring pages, building blocks and more kept the little ones busy, while moms shared fridge photos.  We’re all trying to feed our families on a budget, without compromising quality.  We’re doing things like growing some of our own food, scouting for local food at farmer’s markets, and searching for values at the grocery store, too.  We learned tips about knowing our food, from Stonyfield’s Farm to Fridge project.

My guests took home Stonyfield coupons and sweet prizes like an organic cotton bib from Stonyfield and a handmade child’s apron from FlourSackMama.com.  You can find access to coupons and the chance to win prizes at iWillKnowMyFood.com. Thanks to Moms Meet for coordinating this event, and thanks to our friend Martina for taking photos.

    Will certainly pass on your concern. For those times when my kids are going to have a sweet treat, we still prefer Stonyfield over a lot of the alternatives out there. I hope mine will always eat veggies and fruits too as part of their snack times.

    Hi there, This looks like fun! But I do worry about all the sugar in yogurt — even children’s yogurts from Stonyfield. It would be great, if you talk to them, if you could ask them to REDUCE the sugars in the baby/kids yogurts. There’s more and more evidence that sugar is itself toxic (see a recent 60 Minutes called “Is Sugar Toxic” if you think I’m crazy to suggest this), and Marion Nestle has called yogurt a “dessert” not a heath food. Stonyfield’s has the most sugar in it of any organic yogurt (more than Wallababy, for example). With the issues with childhood obesity and the lack of healthy options for kids, I don’t see why all this sugar is needed.

    Glad she likes it, and it’s so easy to make! We had fun, too.

    Anne, thank you again for hosting. We had a great time! Charlotte is in love with your smoothie, she started to call it her favorite.
