Take a healthy bite!

Back to school means getting back into the swing of things... reading, learning, socializing, lunchboxes, organization... I'm sure I could keep going, but I wont. Hain Celestial and Barnes and Noble has teamed up for their "Take a Healthy Bite Out of Reading" campaign which is to inspire reading through healthy eating! I love programs that tie things together that you may already use, or might open you up to new products!

For your receipts for select products, you can get either a $5 or $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble! (See what I'm saying- healthy eating and reading tied together!) Make sure you hold onto your receipts for Garden of Eatin', MaraNatha, West Soy, Healthy Valley and Earth's Best foods to trade in for your Barnes and Noble gift card. For $15 worth of participating items purchased, you'll receive a $5 Barnes and Noble card, and for $25 worth of products purchased, you'll receive a $10 Barnes and Noble card!

You can find more information at the site, takeahealthybite.com along with additional information about the $500 book sweepstakes too!

Would you like to win a Hain Celestial prize package?? It will include Garden of Eatin' blue corn chips, Health Valley granola bars, Earth's Best tots juice boxes, coupons for free West Soymilk, MaraNatha nut butter and Earth's Best sesame street frozen pizza!! Just leave a comment here with your favorite healthy lunch box addition!
