I wrote about part 1 of the Odwalla Champion For Kids Simple Service Project that I did with my kiddos. We went to our local Wal-Mart and purchased some athletic equipment to donate to Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter. We gave our items to Sadie, the awesome co-author of this blog, to take the NWA Children's Shelter (her day job!) The balls we purchased will go to kids who are not able to be with their parents due to legal reasons. Isaiah was particularly excited about picking out a basketball for the children to play with. He said, "Mom! Look at my crazy super excited face!"
We decided grabbing some cones and fun colored bouncy balls would be great for small kids. I'm thinking some Foursquare action! If you are interested in my shopping experience check out my Google+ Album
We also got Odwalla juice while shopping! This juice is stinkin' awesome! The bottle is eco-friendly and the juice puree is body friendly. I got really excited about this product. I have seen Odwalla, but I never tried it. Once I tried it, I was convinced that kids would love this product. My kids are already drinking puree juices, but I honestly never considered taking these juices to their sporting events and play dates. I always reach for *cough* those "traditional" juice drinks, like most moms on the go do. Part of the Champions For Kids goal is to improve nutrition for children in the United States. Odwalla, one of the Champions for Kids "champions" is a product that provides better nutrition, a healthier alternative, to what most kids are consuming. I decided for the second half of my project I would head out to the ball fields and "ambush" some kids during their saturday games. I wanted to focus on kids making a healthy switch from standard chemical filled, reconstituted, from concentrate juice to VIBRANT and delicious Odwalla juice puree.
The ingredients in Odwalla aren't full of all sorts of frightening chemicals and additives. Odwalla also makes the point to provide their consumers with NON-GMO. This means no genetically modified ickies all up and through your lovely juice. This is a choice ANY mom can get behind.
