Fitbit Flex, Jump Rope, Running Leash, and Van’s Natural Foods Giveaway – ends 2/26

Everything Mommyhood has teamed up with some of our very favorite bloggers to offer this wonderful giveaway to our readers!!! Van’s has superb natural foods and since it’s American Heart Month, I thought I’d share this great giveaway!

As you may know, February is American Heart Month – a great time to think about our heart health and how we can make changes to lower our risk for heart disease.

Heart disease is a serious concern for both women and men and is the leading cause of death for all Americans.

At Van’s Natural Foods, we take our customers’ health concerns seriously, offering a robust line of allergy-friendly foods, delicious whole-grain snacks (including brand-new multigrain chips!) and wide variety of whole grain breakfast options the whole family can enjoy

This month, we’re launching our newest waffle, the fiber and whole grain-rich Love Your Heart Waffle. Made from a mix of hearty whole grains including whole wheat, barley, oats and more, Van’s Love Your Heart Waffles are packed with 34 grams of whole grains and 7 grams of fiber per serving, and help lower cholesterol.*

With this launch, Van’s becomes the first brand in the frozen-foods aisle to offer a waffle that addresses a targeted health concern. To celebrate our new Love Your Heart Waffle and raise awareness about heart health, Van’s is offering a giveaway this month which includes a Fitbit Flex™ wireless, a Valeo Fitness Cardiovascular Deluxe Speed Jump Rope, a hands free running leash and Van’s free product coupons – hopefully a helpful inspiration as you work to keep your own heart healthy. This prize package is valued at $150! Just enter using the Giveaway Tools form below.

We also encourage you to visit the Heart Truth Pinterest page, which is a rich resource of heart-healthy recipes, exercise tips, survivor stories and additional ideas for living a healthy lifestyle.

*3 grams of soluble fiber daily from whole grain oat and barley foods, like Van’s Love Your Heart waffles, in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. These waffles provide 1 gram per serving.

We wish you a very Heart-Healthy 2014 and beyond!
This giveaway is open to the US only, ages 18 and up and ends 2/26/14 at 11:59 PM EST.
