I'm a Kidz Zone Mom!



Kidz Zone Perfect Mom!
     I'm proud to say that I was chosen as one of 100 Moms to review the Kidz Zone Perfect Protein Bars. They come in 3 flavors, Yellow Cupcake, Caramel Crunch and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. I was very intrigued by these being made for kids, claiming to be healthy, packed full of protein and vitamins and actually taste yummy too?!?! Hmmm...let's put them to the test!

Hanging out at the Middle School Track Meet
     First Stop. Middle School Track Meet. I passed out the protein bars to lots of hungry, hot, sweaty Middle School kids. Some of the kids had already ran their events and some were about to run. All were hungry. Success! The kids all gladly took the protein bars, gobbled them up and were really happy that they had options in flavors. They even liked having the "protein" too. These kids are old enough to think it's cool to eat healthy. :)

Before the 100M Hurdle Event

     Some of the girls were naturally drawn to the Yellow Cupcake flavor but also wanted to try the Caramel Crunch as well. We did a mini "taste test" so that they could pick their favorites!
 These girls were so excited to try the Caramel Crunch!

The Boys gobbled them up!

     As a Mom, I was feeling GREAT about fueling my daughter with the Kidz Zone Perfect Protein bars before her events. She runs hard, runs fast and need lots of protein!

 The Kidz Zone Bars fueled her before the 100M Hurdle Dash.
