Barlean's Swirls + Stonyfield Greek Yogurt = A winning combo

Disclosure: I’m a brand ambassador for Stonyfield Organics. I am compensated and receive product samples. All opinions are always my own.

Omega-3's are truly packed with nutritional power. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function. But if your kids don't really care for fish, and if you just can't get them do down a spoonful of fish oil, it's hard to get them into your kids (or let's face it - your) belly.

As part of my partnership with Stonyfield, Barlean’s sent me over some of their amazing products. Their delicious Barlean's Swirls line is perfect for introducing more Omega-3 fatty acids into your family's diet.

Somehow Barlean's has managed to turn nutritional supplements - like fish oil - into dessert. No more big, hard-to-swallow pills or holding your nose so you can choke down a spoonful of nasty fish oil. Barlean’s emulsifies their products utilizing a proprietary technology that turns standard fish oil, flax oil and a variety of other essential nutrients into smoothie-like supplements that add the benefits of fish and flax oil to your smoothies or morning yogurt. Available in delicious flavors like chocolate mint, key lime, pomegranate, mango peach, lemon and orange swirl, all you need to do is swirl a tablespoon into your favorite smoothie or yogurt: each 1 TBS serving has 1,500 mg EPA/DHA. Plus Barlean's Swirls contain zero artificial flavors, gluten, colors, or sugar. They're sweetened naturally with Xylitol.

Around our home, my kids have been enjoying Barlean's swirled into a small cup of plain Stonyfield Greek Yogurt.
My kids like experimenting with swirling in their own Barlean's Swirl combos. Pina Colada and Peach Mango is my son's preferred combo; my daughter enjoys Strawberry Banana with a few darkchocolate chips added in for an extra oomph. A swirl of Barlean's Swirl combined with the protein power of organic Greek yogurt really packs a nutritional punch!
