Hormel Compleats Kids Review & Giveaway


Does your child come in from school ready to chow down? I usually don't have dinner ready until later due to my husband work hours. So, he gets cereal or a sandwich until dinner. This past week he tried the Hormel® Compleats® Kids Spaghetti & Meatballs and loved it. So very simple poke hole in the top and microwave, let cool and eat. Spaghetti & Meatballs is their favorite Hormel Compleats Kids meal.

I used the Hormel Compleats Macaroni & Beef to throw a quick meal together. I cooked some instant mash potatoes and threw a pack of broccoli in the microwave, whoa! fastest meal around here. The boys didn't complain at all. I like the packaging, great size, stackable, and perfect for on the go. Hormel foods have been used in my home for as long as I can remember.

Hormel® Compleats®Kids microwave meals are designed for children ages 3-8. Choose between four flavorful varieties. These meals offer great-tasting options that will please the pickiest eaters and provide nourishment you can feel good about. Hormel®Compleats® Kids microwave meals have no preservatives, artificial colors, high fructose corn syrup or trans-fat, contain three grams of fiber per serving and are a good source of protein, meeting the healthy food regulations established by the U.S.D.A. 

The Hormel® Compleats® Kids website, www.compleatskids.com features a variety of physical activity ideas, a board game style chart to track daily physical activity and a certificate for kids who have committed to eating healthy and being active every day.
