Jacki Quinones is the Tampa Bay mom who created the lifestyle blog Crazylifewithlittles.com. She knows how to handle the crazy morning routine with kids and is dishing on how one of her favorite food brands plays a big role in helping her get through the day.
1) How do Cascadian Farm products help you with your busy routine as a family?
Cascadian Farm products are every busy mom’s dream! Knowing Cascadian Farm products are made with wholesome, organic ingredients makes for faster shopping trips for our busy, on-the-go family. Oftentimes, I have to stop to read ingredients, but when I see the Cascadian Farm brand, I know we can grab it and go!
2) What do you love most about this brand?
There is reassurance knowing that Cascadian Farm has been around for nearly 50 years. I feel confident in their commitment and dedication to sourcing from certified organic farms to make the products we know and love.
3) What are some of your favorite Cascadian Farm products?
Some of our favorite Cascadian Farm products include their organic fruit infused wild blueberry lemon granola bars, the kid’s size peanut butter chocolate chip granola bars, and their whole line of frozen fruits are amazing for blending up fresh smoothies.
4) The Cascadian Farm partnership with Hyppo/Feeding Tampa Bay is super exciting! What are your thoughts? Does a brand giving back to your community make a difference in your mind? What does it mean to you?
I am extremely excited about this partnership! A brand that makes it a priority to give back to the community is even more incentive to support that brand. It also gives families an opportunity to open the conversation with their kids and find other ways to support their community. My kids may still be small, but we’re raising them to be kind and always offer help when they’re able.
5) Any other thoughts or comments, tips, recipe hacks?
My kids love to help in the kitchen and over the past year it has proven to be a valuable learning experience for them. We talk about the ingredients we use and how they nourish our bodies. They often ask now if a snack or treat is “healthy” and will refuse it if not. I love being able to say yes! with confidence when I hand them a Cascadian Farm snack. We recently made a fall snack mix using Cascadian Farm Honey Vanilla Crunch cereal that has been a hit for taking to school, soccer practice and weekend outings.
