Swimming, gymnastics, running, and kayaking…you name it and my family and I are doing it! We are a busy family and one of the problems we face is eating healthy food on the go. We already pack fresh fruits & veggies for our commute between events, but we were missing the protein needed to keep our bodies functioning efficiently. The girls and I recently tried Maple Leaf Natural Selections Protinis snacks.
The easy to open and compact Protinis gives a powerful protein punch especially when the girls are training for gymnastics events & swim meets. KT enjoyed the Oven Roasted Chicken with Mango, AndiePandie thought the Oven Roasted Chicken and Apple was the perfect snack during breaks at the club and I enjoyed the Mild Salsa Chicken as my snack of choice.
The new PROTINIS™ snacks are available in eight flavours including Oven Roasted Chicken, Sweet Thai Chili Chicken, Mild Salsa Chicken, Honey Garlic Chicken, Oven Roasted Chicken and Cranberry, Oven Roasted Chicken and Superfruit, Oven Roasted Chicken and Mango, and Oven Roasted Chicken and Apple. They are available at major grocery stores across Canada and retail for approximately $4.99. Each retail pack comes with two PROTINIS™ snacks.
I would love to know what you think of Protinis! I will be giving 2 of my lucky readers, 5 free product coupons to test out these tasty protein packed snacks.
Beckett even decided to try a Protinis on his last field trip. His teacher made a comment to him about how healthy his snack was, he was very proud!

This show is perfect for those expecting a new family member or for those with children under five. The Baby Show is the largest pregnancy and early parenting show in our capital city.

Good Luck and we will see you at The Baby Show!
My friends at GoFer Productions are looking for some youthful actors to cast in very cool adventure detective web series. They are looking for children ages 8, 10 and 12 to cast in the four roles that need to be filled.
Here is a little about the characters:
Miles Maggins: At 12 years old, Miles is the oldest of the Maggins siblings. He’s the most daring of the trio, however he always keeps a protective eye on Max and Maddie. He idolizes James Bond and always finds the most exciting and creative gadgets to help solve cases.
Max Maggins: Obsessed with science, Max attempts to concoct new experiments daily. Although they tend to blow up in his face, literally. The 10 year old stays on point and never gives up, much like his hero, Albert Einstein. He’s always the first to crack a joke, or state his opinion, and his goofy demeanor frequently gets the trio into and out of sticky situations.
Maddie Maggins: Maddie’s passion for mysteries ignites the screen as she helps her brothers stay focused. Only being 8 years old proves difficult when trying to be taken seriously. however Maddie is the bravest and most adventurous of the bunch. She is always looking for a journey. just like her hero, Amelia Earhart.
Johnny Krumbert: Johnny wants nothing more than to be included with the Maggins trio. The only problem is that he’s scared of everything! He attempts to bring them mysteries, however most of them have been solved or don’t need solving. Always wanting to help in some way, Johnny will show up on a “crime scene,” invited or not.
My three are not actors, but they could all lawyers when they explain why they cannot clean their rooms. This is an excellent opporunity for budding actors to land a role that will take them viral.
