This month's momstown Milton Art & Play was sponsored by Quaker Chewy. Kids had fun answering questions about snack choices and learning about the nutritious goodness that Quaker has to offer. Chewy granola bars are a great Canadian snack (made in Peterborough) from 100% whole grain oats and the perfect peanut free option for lunch boxes. There are 9 delicious flavours to choose from including the new Chewy Yogurt, Strawberry and Banana granola bar. It was the first peanut-free yogurt granola bar to be introduced in Canada.
Quaker has partnered with momstown to help build awareness to the fact that there are many Canadian families who do not have enough food to make meals for before, during and after school. Beginning August 14, Quaker is asking families across Canada to join the fun by taking pictures of their children’s artwork and submitting it to ChewyForCharity.ca. For every piece of artwork uploaded, Quaker will donate the eqivalent of 10lbs of food to Food Banks across Canada. In Milton we have set a goal of raising 500lbs amongst our community!
Our little ones had a blast creating their own Canadian masterpieces at our Art & Play program. They focused on what Canada means to them and we had everything from the Canadian flag to our national sport of hockey painted.
It was great seeing the delight on everyone's face when they got to try a sample of Chewy's delicious granola bars! They got to choose from new Yogurt Strawberry and Banana and the Chocolate Chip granola bar. Every Quaker Chewy bar is made with 10 grams of Canadian whole grain oats and is endorsed by the Whole Grains Council of Canada. I wonder how many of our little ones realize just how healthy granola bars are for them?
Each of our participants got to take home their very own loot bag filled with a box of each of the granola bars sampled. Great start to getting snack ready for Back to School!
If you were not able to attend the event today – no worries! You can still help the cause by making a picture at home with your little one and uploading it to the Chewy for Charity website.Remember to label it as momstown Milton so that we can keep track to see if we attain our goal.
