My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

Showing our #FrubesMoves with Angry Birds

You've heard of Frubes, right?
Frubes are the clever little tubes and pouches from Yoplait that, together, make up the largest portable yogurt brand around. Perfect for lunchboxes, an on the go snack or an after dinner treat, they are tasty and versatile and packed full of that essential bone builder, Vitamin D.

Frubes are a huge favourite in this house, and with all three children loving them so much, we can go through quite a few boxes! So, when we were invited to take part in the #FrubesMoves challenge with Britmums, I knew it would be a wonderful fun opportunity for the kids to join. So, we stocked up on Frubes, ready to get our groove on!

Available in a variety of delicious flavours, and now in pouches as well as the original tubes, it has never been so easy to ensure that your child is taking in enough calcium and Vitamin D through their diet. Whilst they are little, this is extremely important, as they are unable to naturally make calcium, so including the correct amount of it in their diet is vital. Vitamin D assists by helping the body absorb calcium, so together, they are an essential winning team, making Frubes perfect in every way!

You will notice that the Angry Birds have managed to get their feathery faces printed on these promotional boxes, as in conjunction with the recent release of their family hit The Angry Birds Movie, Frubes have been offering families the opportunity to win a holiday to the Bahamas. This competition also includes a weekly draw with prizes of fun Angry Birds merchandise. You'll need to hurry though, as this promotion only runs until 31st October, 2016.

Now, onto the Moves part. Anyone that knows my children will know that they struggle to sit still for very long, and they absolutely love to dance! Munch has recently started asking for us to look into various out of school classes, and one class in particular that she would like to try is dancing. She has no preference for the style of said dancing; ballet, tap, street, contemporary ... as long as she is moving to music, she's happy! In September, she started Dance Club at school which she attends once a week after school. This hasn't replaced her desire to join an external class ... it has, in fact, made her want it even more!

And as for Beastie and Plumlet, well, they are happy to dance whether there is music playing or not! Whenever I turn the music on at home, whatever the children are doing gets dropped immediately, and they are up, competing for the attention of me and The Man, as well as that of each other, with cries of "Look at me!" and Watch this!" We'll then be treated to demonstrations of jumping, spinning, wacky arm movements and copious amounts of bum wiggling! I have to admit, it's a sight I'll never tire of! 

So, I thought, for the sake of our #FrubesMoves Challenge, I would treat the world to a snippet of my little groovers. After visiting angrybirds.frubes.co.uk and choosing to fully support the Angry Birds against the mischievous pigs in their dance-off, the kids decided they would dance their socks off (literally!) to help send those piggies on their way with their tails between their legs!! Boasting a bit of ballet, a sprinkling of street, a cup full of contemporary and a whole lot of their own style, they all wanted to join in to cheer on the Angry Birds and to give those pesky Pigs a run for their money!

This is how it's done, Piggies ...!

As you can see, dancing makes them extremely happy!

As does eating yogurt!

Originally, I had explained to Munch that the #FrubesMoves Challenge was one that we were going to work on together, just the two of us. The Smalls were fine with this ... but as soon as they got wind of the fact that the challenge involved eating yogurt and dancing in support of the Angry Birds, there was no way of holding them back! They insisted on getting involved too. And I thought, seeing as Yoplait's Frubes are ideal for the whole family, why not let them share the fun with each other!

Hopefully, the Angry Birds will appreciate the little extra support!!

Frubes are available from all leading supermarkets with an RRP of £2.00, which I think is a small price to pay to be sure you're taking such good care of their growing bones. And my three are going to need to keep Frubes as part of their diet to maintain dance moves like this!!

So, who will you support ...?
The courageous Angry Birds or the sneaky Pigs?
