Love and Confections: Central Florida Zoo #StonyfieldBlogger

Central Florida Zoo #StonyfieldBlogger

A trip to the zoo through the eyes of a child is one of the best experiences. Seeing new animals, feeding giraffes, and playing in the splash pad were the highlights of the day.

I have an ongoing relationship with Stonyfield Yogurt as a recipe developer and brand ambassador. I receive product, coupons and/or compensation for posts featuring their products.



I recently wrote about Stonyfield Organic partnering with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Stonyfield is the country's leading organic yogurt maker, and focuses on conservation and sustainability, so it comes as no surprise that Stonyfield partnered with the AZA.
Stonyfield provided a 4-pack of tickets for us to visit an AZA zoo. The toddler and I went to the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens and had an amazing time. I had never been to that zoo, even though I have lived in Central Florida for nearly 15 years - unbelievable. I researched the zoo and was happy to find out that there was plenty of shade around the zoo and a splash pad too!


We planned to go and see the animals, have lunch, then let the toddlers play in the water to cool down. The highlight of our visit was being able to feed the giraffes. I had never done that, and to experience my toddler beaming from ear to ear after giving a giraffe some lettuce melts my heart. They were so excited and I cannot wait to go back to visit the giraffes again!


Through Stonyfield YoKids you can also find an offer for a FREE kids ticket (with the purchase of an adult ticket) for one of the hundreds of AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums in your community when you purchase 2 specially-marked Stonyfield YoKids multi-packs.


The AZA SAFE program (Saving Animals From Extinction) has 232 accredited zoos and aquariums in 47 states with over 750,000 animals in the care of zoo and aquarium professionals. There are about 1,000 threatened or endangered species in these AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums.


Some of the 10 Signature Species (African penguin, Asian elephant, black rhinoceros, cheetah, gorilla, sea turtle, sharks, vaquita, Western pond turtle, and whooping crane) can be seen on the Stonyfield YoKid's packaging this year. 

I hope you are able to enjoy a zoo or aquarium trip this Summer with your family or friends, and don't forget to grab some Stonyfield Yogurt!

Until next time,
LOVE & CONFECTIONS!
