Yoplait "Strong and Happy" Kids Drawing Contest

Honestly, it was the name of this contest, "Strong and Happy," that drew me in more than anything else. (No pun intended - really!)

Isn't that just exactly what we want for our kids? For them to be healthy and strong in mind and body, and happy? I want to feed my kids well, and give them opportunities to play and shine and grow.

So when I asked my 5 year old son to draw a picture of himself, strong and happy, I was delighted when he gave me this:

Don't you love the smiling sun? And his ears?

Most of all, isn't it nice that he sees himself as strong and happy? I hope to teach him to take care of his body, by choosing healthier foods and enjoying outdoor play with friends. We can't wait for spring, and warm sunshine, and the start of another soccer season!

Fortunately, we don't have to wait for yogurt. That's a treat we can enjoy all year round. We even freeze them with a stick, and have healthy frozen treats that are WAY better than popsicles...even in the middle of winter in Wisconsin.

I really appreciate that Yoplait Kids has less sugar in their yogurt. And how nice of them to partner with 5 Minutes for Mom to sponsor this fun drawing contest!


  1. How very true, and how cute! (I *DO* love the ears... :) ) I like the soccer ball... yup, it's too cold in Massachusetts for that right now also~ Blessings~

  2. Erica Here!

    Congratulations! Your drawing is a finalist in our contest.

  3. Wow, congratulations to your son. A lovely picture that is. Reflects on his happy, nurturing environment. Btw, have you considered personalizing these pictures and artwork and putting kids photos on wall art? Capturing children's art on canvas would make a great holiday gift as well as build children's self esteem.


What's on your mind?
