Win a $500 Walmart Gift Card {Canada}

I camped in a tent for the first time when I was a teenager and I was hooked. I loved the outdoors, the adventure, the campfire… everything but the bugs! It was one of my favourite ways to vacation for many years. My son and I would escape to various Ontario campsites on weekends and we would camp for one entire week each summer.

I don’t mind if they are nibbling all day, as long as the food they are snacking on isn’t full of sugar. I can ensure that they are eating well by avoiding purchasing sugary snacks and filling the fridge with fresh fruits and vegetables and a family favourite, cheese. Arla® Havarti is found in the grocer’s...
