Tips to Relieve Back-to-School Stress Symptoms and Polish Up Spelling Skills

This is a sponsored blog post that contains affiliate links and images. Content was provided by Rolaids® for a sponsorship fee.

As the first day of school approaches, parents take on the challenging task of gathering required supplies - averaging more than $300 for some middle and high-school students this year! The time crunch and heavy price tags may be a cause of stress for parents.

Heartburn and acid indigestion can be a result of stress in some adults, which can manifest through burning sensations in the chest, upset stomach, burning or pain in the upper abdomen, nausea or bloating. To help these symptoms, parents can adapt some lifestyle changes like eating smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day. Heartburn and acid indigestion are also made worse by smoking and drinking, and eating tangy or spicy foods.

Click here to learn more from Rolaids® about how to recognize and limit the symptoms of heartburn and acid indigestion.


Parents can also prep for the new school year in the first-ever ‘Rolaids® Eat Your Words’ Spelling Bee challenge.’ The contest is live right now on the Rolaids Facebook page. “Bee” participants will go up against culinary tongue twisters such as jalapeƱo and bratwurst for the chance to win prizes, including a $500 grand prize, as well as daily and weekly prizes. The game ends August 23, 2014.

Head Back to School with SunRidge Farms Snacks!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


The school year has either started already or looming nearby (and being a mom of a first time school child, I am FREAKING OUT about sending my oldest for the first time!) and healthy snacks are so important for your child's health and brain power. This school year, let me recommend SunRidge Farms, who has a variety of organic and natural snack foods that are great for lunches or after school snacks.

They offer a variety of kid-friendly organic snacks and trail mixes, dried fruits, nuts & seeds. Check out my favorites for any lunch box this school year:

Raisins, Thompson, Organic


My children and I have enjoyed snacking on these plump, moist, sweet and delicious Organic Raisins. If you've never tried organic raisins, it's time. Great for baking, topping a salad, or for snacking by the handful!

I enjoy these in my oatmeal every morning or just a handful at snack time! So delicious and sweet!

Hit The Trail, Organic


KING OF THE TRAIL! This #1 selling favorite is the perfect mix of ingredients for winning taste and power-packed nutrition. Fresh Roasted in small batches, it includes the following USDA Certified Organic ingredients: Roasted Tamari Almonds & Sunflower Seeds, Cashews, Raisins, Peanuts, and Pumpkin Seeds. One mouthful and you'll be reaching for more!

This is really the perfect mix to send in your child's lunchbox - it will keep them energized and alert during the school day!

Sesame Sticks, Salted


SunRidge Farms All Natural Sesame Sticks are a long-time crunchy customer favorite! Baked crunchy and lightly salted, these hearty and crispy sticks are great for snacking, hiking and other outdoor activities.

These are my husband's absolute favorite and he can't stop snacking on them once he starts! 

Cashews, Roasted & Salted Whole Organic


Freshly roasted in house! SunRidge Farms USDA Certified Organic Whole Roasted and Salted Cashews are roasted to perfected in small batches, and then lightly salted, using only the highest quality cashews available on the market.

These are the perfect snack and I actually snacked on these to keep me energized during my home birth two weeks ago! It is the perfect mix of salty and crunch!

Almonds, Tamari Roasted, Organic


Roasted to perfection in small batches! Nutty flavor of roasted almonds with delicious, flavorful organic tamari Shoyu. The result is a snack that tastes delicious, contains fiber, iron and other nutrients.

I love almonds and I love this taste twist on the classic almonds. They are the perfect snack for any time of day and I love the burst of flavor!

So as you can see, SunRidge Farms offers a great variety of tasty, organic and healthy snacks for the school day, the work day or any day! They are all delicious and great for keeping energized throughout the day!

Buy It: You can purchase all these SunRidge Farms snacks (and many more!) from the SunRidge Farms website.

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.



When you think of kittens, most of you would think "super soft!" That is what Scotties wants you to think of when you think of their tissues too! They are both super soft!

Scotties Facial Tissues recently announced that all summer long, from June to August they will be holding sponsoring cat adoption events along the east coast. Scotties will work with rescue organizations in Boston, MA, Raleigh, NC, and Tampa, FL in order to waive adoption fees for prospective cat owners in an effort to place them in loving homes.

This private/public partnership with animal rescue organizations is a key public service focus for Scotties on the east coast in 2014. All adoptable cats will have been spayed and neutered and are up to date on all shots and vaccinations.


Scotties hopes to rally support for this cause and to put approximately 100 – 150 cats nationally into their forever homes.

So head to your nearest retailer and pick up some Scotties tissues! You will support a great cause and feel how soft Scotties tissues really are!
