Summer is almost over and it is time for kids to go back to school. We had a great summer, but I think all parents will agree it is time for kids to go back to school. We just got our classroom assignment letter and we cannot be happier. My son's teacher will be the same teacher he had last year. She is an awesome teacher and we like her a lot.
Since, we are so happy with our teacher assignment we have decided to put together a welcome gift basket for the teacher. Just a little token of appreciation for what we know it is going to be hard work for a whole year. I have always thought being a teacher cannot be easy, and I think teachers deserve support from parents and all the help they can get.
When I started shopping for our welcome basket, I knew I needed to include some hand sanitizer. Yes, i need to make sure kids have clean hands, so maybe my son will not get sick all the time. Let's face it kids go back to school and all the germs come home with them. They get sick and parents get sick. And who has time to be sick? well, not me, not this year.
As far as hand sanitizers goes, there is a few brands our there, however I found a cool brand that is made in the USA and is triclosan-free.
Let me tell you more about the b4 products. The b4 hand sanitizer is specially formulated to kill 99.9% germs and bacteria, b4 moisturizes hands with Vitamin E and aloe and it comes in really cool bold colors.
b4 products are packaged hand sanitizers that are convenient for anyone on the go, especially with kids and off course they are perfect for school backpacks and for teachers to have on their classrooms. Small packages that will avoid waste, although the product also comes in a wall dispenser and hand pumps.
The best part about b4 hand sanitizer is that they give 50 percent of all profits from sales to children-focused causes. The profits are donated through The Midway Foundation and more than $1.3 millions have already been donated to more than 150 organizations.
You can shop online and use code “b4health” and get 15% off any online orders. All orders over $35 receive free shipping.
b4 products will be available at Staples store starting Sept. 9th so you can buy them locally too.
Available on DVD August 19th

In our house we love sea food and one of our favorite recipes is Shrimp Ceviche. I try to prepare it as often as I can because it is easy to make and it is healthy. We also love spicy food, however some of the hot sauces available in the market have a vinegar taste, in most times my son asks me not to put any hot sauce in the food.
But if you know anything about cooking, you know that a good Shrimp Ceviche has to be spicy. So I was really happy when I finally found a hot sauce that taste like homemade and it is affordable.
Since we are shopping for back to school supplies, I took a trip to Walmart and after buying notebooks and pencils I found El Yucateco sauces at the Latin Food aisle, so I guess we will having some back to school dinner celebration with Shrimp Ceviche and avocado.
El Yucateco hot sauce has an authentic mexican flavor. It is bold and spicy and it is great with so many foods. Just imagine that you can add it to every day recipes to create a new latino flavor dish. It would be a great addition during breakfast time to any burrito, chilaquiles or even an omelet. My son asked me to add it to our chicken rice and it really made a great difference on the taste. We are going to try some hot wings next, because with 4 different flavors available the possibilities are endless.
El Yucateco is available in 4 great flavors
El Yucateco will not only be great for food. I am imagining some Micheladas or even an spicy Bloody Mary to go with the ceviche. That is a great way to have your #SauceOn #CollectiveBias
