Mad for Monday (Max's Weekend Update): Whole Foods Back-to-School GIVEAWAY

Hi Friends,

How was your weekend?  What did you do?

We are going to take a break from our regular "Weekend Update" post today to share an exciting Whole Foods GIVEAWAY for Houstonians and ... to share our guest post on one of our favorite blogs, Schue Love.

You can read our regular Weekend Update on our Houston Chronicle blog: Mad About Town.

Whole Foods "Back-to-School" GIVEAWAY

Houstonians: Are you gearing up for the back-to-school season with your kiddos (small or big)?  School supplies aren't complete without some lunch / snack treats and gear.

As many of you know, Whole Foods is our food destination of choice to refuel for the new school year.  We are very excited to partner with them for a Super "Back-to-School" GIVEAWAY.  I think even "big kids" (adults) would be excited to win this gift pack.

Love the lunch planner! There are some great alternatives to PB&J and turkey sandwiches on there! I'm just happy I have a 5 year old that will eat anything! BTW, is vitamin water really ok kids?

Mad Max and Family said...

Neha, thanks for stopping by and commenting! I'm not sure about vitamin water. I personally probably wouldn't - maybe teens. Max pretty much only drinks plain water (and soy / almond milk). Spread the word on our GIVEAWAY. Check out our Schue Love blog too!


It's a Beautiful Day said...

oh no! where did my comment go?? I love the grilled cheese sandwich! I wish I could have it for lunch today, instead, I brought a salad and a plum :) What a great giveaway! I have a picky pre-k eater, but she would love this recipe!

Mad Max and Family said...

Thanks for stopping by! You mean the Grilled Cheeze on our Tuesday blog, right?

Max and I saw the Back to School giveaways, and he told me he is a "shoe-in" for winning!! Love you, Max - you're the best!! Keep helping mommy write all those good articles! Mimi said...

I have four children and finding healthy lunch box fillers that they all like is always a struggle. I've invested in some mini Thermos flasks so they can take soup or pasta, as they are all bored with my sandwiches! Thanks for all the ideas - I'm off to like your post on Facebook now!
