NEW EnviroKidz Cereals from Nature's Path

Monday, April 28, 2014

Earth Month has nearly come to an end but in our home, the conversation regarding sustainability, habitat conservation and the environment continues year-round. Last year, our family learned about local city critters as part of an educational, hands-on series of workshops at Toronto Botanical Garden. We discovered that the falcon is the fastest animal on earth at the Great Birds of Prey workshop. We tasted different kinds of honey and watched worker bees and drones during The Buzz on Bees session. And we planted our own milkweed seeds and released a butterfly into the wild during the Monarchs on the Move workshop. While it isn't always feasible to provide these types of hands-on experiences to our children on a regular basis, we sometimes rely on documentaries on Netflix or take the kids to the theatre to see films such as Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees, Disneynature's Chimpanzee or Flight of the Buttlerflies currently playing at the Ontario Science Centre. Of course, reading books from the library is also a great way to learn more about animals and nature.

Another way to instill the importance of wildlife conservation and environmental sustainability is involving our children in the decision-making process while grocery shopping. At age eight and five, both our daughter and our son have the capacity to understand that the ways in which we lead our lives can impact the world around us. More often than not, we encourage our children to enjoy local, seasonal foods and to opt for whole grain, organic and/or natural snacks and cereals. It has been several years, in fact, that our family has enjoyed a variety of snack bars and cereals made by one of our favourite brands - Nature's Path.


NEW EnviroKidz Cereals!


Recently, Nature’s Path EnviroKidz launched two new whole grain corn puff cereals: chocolate flavoured Choco Chimps Cereal and cinnamon flavoured Jungle Munch Cereal. We received a lovely gift basket to sample these new flavours and were delighted to learn that EnviroKidz Choco Chimps Cereal supports The Jane Goodall Institute and that their Jungle Munch Cereal supports Fauna & Flora International. The fact that they’re certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, whole grain, and made without toxic pesticides, artificial flavours and colours was nothing new to us. All these factors made it an easy purchase decision for us so many years ago. The kids already liked Gorilla Munch so I knew Choco Chimps would be a hit. Jungle Munch was their least favourite because they don't care much for cinnamon. They enjoyed it more when they mixed it with some of the plain corn puffs, though.

What I am happy to see is that EnviroKidz makes good use out of their packaging by using both the back and inside of the box to feature tons of info about the animals they support such as chimpanzees. Contributions have been made to The Jane Goodall Institute to support important projects like Wounda’s Journey. I have included below a touching video documenting the emotional release of Wounda, a chimpanzee who overcame adversity and illness. The video, which also features Jane Goodall who turned 80 earlier this month, got me a little teary-eyed near the 3:10 mark:



Did you know...?

Every time you buy an EnviroKidz product, 1% of the sales are donated to support endangered species, habitat conservation and environmental education for kids worldwide. 

Though the cereals retail for $4.99, I have seen them available for purchase online at Walmart.ca for $4. They also carry the cereal bars for the same price. We all love the cereal bars and they make a great snack for on the go. But they tend to get a little sticky so it's always a good idea to have a wet cloth on hand.



Interested in trying these cereals and bars for yourself? One of my readers will win an EnviroKidz prize pack similar to the one featured above. And the good news is that this giveaway is open to both Canada and the US. Simply complete the Rafflecopter form below to be eligible to win.


Disclosure: I was sent samples to help facilitate this review. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own.
