WINNER ANNOUNCED! $50 Visa Gift Card from Dannon's Dan-o-nino!

And our winner is Tabathia! Thank you so much to all who entered. 
More great content and contests to come from Mama to the Rescue. 

[THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSE] Getting my kid to eat is like getting a cat to take a bath. It's hard. He's all over the place and just too busy to be bothered. When he eats, I have to make it count.  So, when I was given the chance to check out a new product from Dannon Yogurt called Dan-o-nino, I went for it.

Dan-o-nio is simply yogurt. No fillers. No additives. No weird colors. Just nutritious stuff that tastes good. But, where Dan-o-nino packs its punch is that it has 2 times the calcium of leading kids' yogurts, 2 times the amount of calcium in regular milk, plus vitamin D and lots of protein. Talk about making your snack count! I tried both the regular yogurt (available in four flavor varieties) and the yogurt smoothie (available in two flavor varieties). Both were eaten without a fuss. And both times he asked for more. That is a HUGE deal! Great tasting. I know, I had some. The cute little dinosaur on the front is a plus because my boy LOVES dinos. We saved the brightly colored cups after use, as suggested on their site, and planted a few seeds. They are sitting in our window sill right now. Science experiment! Check out their site for more fun games and ideas.

Want to try Dan-o-nino for yourself and buy some other healthful foods while you're at it? Enter to win a $50 VISA gift card by replying to this post below. Just tell me how you get your kid to eat well during the day, and you could win! Let's get this discussion going!

Contest starts NOW and ends September 28, 2011 11:59 PM PST.

  1. Looks like a fun new product! I try to get my daughter to eat healthy by providing a variety of fruits that I know she likes. Apples, nectarines, watermelon, and grapes are great! When that stuff isn't in season, i go for applesauce or frozen smoothie type things.

  2. My girls LOVE eating, and they have different favorite foods. I try to keep them eating healthy foods by letting them have some choices. For instance, I sometime let them choose their veggie for dinner. My 5-year-old prefers carrots, while my 3-year-old is a big fan of broccoli. :)

  3. Ok, so I wrote an entire paragraph...only to find out it didnt post. Maybe I need to keep it short? I used to give and make so many options for J to eat healthy, but not anymore. Now I only give him one choice, and when there is no other choice, he has to eat whats in front of him. But usually if I cut anything into little squares, he will eat it. He likes to pick up food with his fingers. My fave choice? Tofu. Its gross plain, but if those babies are in little squares, J will eat it! ^_^

  4. I keep alot of fruit and they make fruit salads and we make whole grain muffins
