5 Minute for Mom contributor, Jennifer Donovan, is here to share news about an awesome contest. This post is sponsored, but as always, our writer’s opinions are her own.
One of the most recent nutrition trends seems to be sugar, as in too much sugar can be toxic for us. It seems like everyone out there is trying to reduce their sugar intake, not just for themselves, but for their families as well. And whereas I can make better choices about products I buy, avoiding those with added sugar when possible, I do not want to eliminate baked goods. They are delicious and can also be healthy additions to well-rounded eating.

Truvia® has launched a new Brown Sugar Blend, a mixture of Truvia® and Brown Sugar that offers a brown-sugar-like taste, texture, and volume, with 75 percent fewer calories than regular brown sugar. To celebrate the launch, Truvia® is giving all baking enthusiasts the chance to share their talents in the Truvia® Baking Star contest.
