GoGo squeeZ Giveaway (Contest Closed)

Thank  you to everyone that entered—the contest is now closed. 

Congratulations to our winner: Megan!

With Labor Day weekend behind us, it’s time to kiss summer goodbye and get fully immersed in back to school. (No more sitting on the fence, people)

To kick off the school year, we thought it would be fun to give away a favorite of the Today’s Mama staff kiddos—GoGo squeeZ!

(My kids are nuts for Apple Strawberry.)

Two lucky lunchbox heroes will win a prize pack that includes all 8 flavors and a sweet GoGo squeeZ canvas tote bag.

But just because school is back in session doesn’t mean that playtime is over! GoGo squeeZ is supporting the Fresh Air Fund, a non-profit that provides summer camp experiences to inner city kids, with their “Pass the Play” project. GoGo squeeZ has pledged to donate $1 to The Fresh Air Fund for every tweet or Facebook post using #passtheplay with the goal of raising $25,000.

Want to get the ball rolling? Share this tweet:

Help donate $1 to @FreshAirFund by following @GoGosqueeZ & tweeting #PassthePlay

    Its going great! My oldest started kindergarten and I’m so happy that she is loving it!! Now if only she would eat her fruits at lunch…

    Better that what I expected. I thought that they were gonna be sad and me happy lol but it happens to be the opposite. I was miserable while they were happy:(

  3. Wifey622 09/11/2012 at 7:42 am

    All 3 of our children are having a great start, they are excited! I love that!

  4. Melissa 09/10/2012 at 12:26 pm

    We’re in half-day pre-k, and after some tweaking of nap (now reduced to NONE – read “poor me!”) and a few other things, we’re settled into the routine and all is good!

  5. Lisa 09/10/2012 at 12:22 pm

    Back to school is good so far. Organized my house and gave my kids chores to do. They have been doing a fabulous job! Very proud of them.

    First year of school, going great! Kids love this stuff!

  7. Kat 09/05/2012 at 12:49 am

    Our school year has started off great! I think this was one of our best starts yet! We have two in high school and one in 5th grade, and we are looking forward to a wonderful year! Packing healthy lunches that the kids will eat always seems to be one of the hardest parts. I’d love to win some GoGoSqueez to make the lunchbags more fun! Thanks for the giveaway!

    It’s going nice this year!!

  9. Laurie Grant 09/04/2012 at 7:08 pm

    The beginning of the school year is going well so far, but already have complaints about the first book report being due.

  11. Jessica Allsup 09/04/2012 at 3:07 pm

    I love your fruits! It makes me happy that my kindergartener is excited to open his lunch and eat healthy stuff!!!

  12. Timery 09/04/2012 at 2:00 pm

    I liked them!

  13. Timery 09/04/2012 at 1:58 pm

    Back to school has gone surprisingly well! My kindergartner has become the self proclaimed ‘helper’ of the class and my first grader loves showing her the ropes! I am trying to get involved with PTA and my first grader’s advanced program. This is going to be a busy but fun year!

  14. Melissa 09/04/2012 at 1:25 pm

    He’s great at school, loving it even, but at home he says he wants to quit and the mornings are full of “I don’t want to go.”

  15. Jacqueline Lipe 09/04/2012 at 1:24 pm

    School is going great! Back to packing lunches, snacks, and water bottles. Of course, the kids love GoGo squeeZ, and want to try ALL of the flavors!

      Hi BrendanI am also awaiting your book with emxtiecent! I have been a commercial model for 2 years and have enjoyed it, I now want to move into film and television, I have drama school training (Central school) but went straight into commercial modelling as I just wanted to work- any suggestions how to move and change into it? Ive tried the normal way of approaching and writing to an agent but feel it gets lost with all the applicants- as is inviting them to see me in some plays/screenings I have been in, Thanks for your help!!

    Back to school is going great! Both of boys are loving their teachers and best of all…routines are back!! My little girl goes back in October but I am sure she will do great!!

    We started last Tuesday. Back to School and First Grade for my daughter has been an easy transition so far. I have found that prepping lunches on Sunday for the week has helped our days get going better!

  21. Erica Fehrman 09/04/2012 at 9:00 am

    The kindergarten transition has left my little one much more exhausted than I anticipated, but we’re getting more used to it by the week!

    Back to school has been an interesting transition. I’m still trying to get our morning routine done in a timely manner…

  28. Rachel 09/03/2012 at 12:14 pm

    Back to school has been smooth! Especially since nap time isn’t as long this year 🙂

  29. Raejean 09/03/2012 at 12:02 pm

    We’re definitely back into the school routine. My kiddos have been back in school so long, it seems strange that others are just starting 🙂

  30. Anna Camarena 09/03/2012 at 10:44 am

    For the kids it’s going fine. On the other hand, for me not so good. It’s been pretty crazy in the mornings. Trying to walk them up is the hardest. It seems like we are always rushing to get out the door.

  31. Melissa M. 09/03/2012 at 10:06 am

    My daughter starts preschool next week!

  32. Katie Fagundes 09/03/2012 at 9:31 am

    My boys love Gogo squeeze. There FAV is apple banana and apple apple.
    School for us starts tomorrow. My oldest is in kindergarten.
    Already liked both on FB and following on twitter to. Will share when I get on my computer, can’t share from the phone 🙁

    My 2nd grader an preK love Gogo squeeze for snack at school!

  38. Jenn Nelson 09/03/2012 at 7:13 am

    School mornings are a little hectic with my 10 yr old daughter and 4 yr old granddaughter going to different schools and needing to be dropped off within 5 minutes of each other. It can be a challenge but with products like the GoGo applesauce, at least the lunch is quick and easy to put together!

  39. Sharon Tonnies 09/03/2012 at 6:22 am

    They are more ready than I am. 🙂 I have 2 going off to Kindergarten. Have a great year!

  42. Jessica Kaneen 09/03/2012 at 4:06 am

    We are loving being back to school. I actually miss them but my girls are so eager to learn and are so excited to get up each morning, that it makes me happy to see them go.
