Van's recipe contest & giveaway

**Contest Closed**

Well I am sure that no matter what state you live in, school has started back in full swing! Of course we do all we can to ensure our kids are not sent out the door without a good breakfast first. Van's Natural Foods offers a variety of waffles, pancakes and french toast sticks made with all natural ingredients. They also make organic, gluten-free and wheat-free varieties. It's a great way to have a convenient and wholesome breakfast choice for busy school mornings. I know my kids would love to have the Homestyle Belgian waffles with a little syrup on top. I think they would be so good with some fresh strawberries on the side (and maybe a tiny dollop of whipped cream)

Van's is offering one Momfiles reader vouchers for 5 free boxes of Van's products. All you have to do is leave a comment sharing your simple and creative recipe or serving idea using any Van's waffles, pancakes or french toast sticks. It can be for breakfast, lunch, snack...any time of day, just be creative! You can use one ingredient or twenty if you want. If you would like to share more than one idea then leave a separate comment (limit 3 entries). The contest runs until September 17 and the winner will be announced on Sept 20.

Be sure to "like" Van's Natural Foods on Facebook and Momfiles on Facebook and leave a comment letting us know you did. You can find Van's products using the Store Locator. I have seen them in Publix and Kroger. Good luck to everyone and we can't wait to see your fun recipe/serving ideas :)
Contest open to US Residents only.
Disclosure: I will receive free product coupons as compensation for my post.
