This is a sweet treat which will give you zero-guilt! I had the opportunity to try out a few flavors and one of my favorites is the Peanut Butter Swirl!

It is fat-free and only 35 calories per half-cup serving and only 150 calories for the entire pint! Now, how cool is that?!

The Aquarium of the Pacific’s Magellanic Penguin chick hatched in May will make its public debut and join its parents, siblings, and other birds in the June Keyes Penguin Habitat on August 8. The public can see the chick starting when the Aquarium opens that morning at 9:00 a.m.

 

The chick was born to parents Roxy and Floyd. Roxy, the penguin chick’s mother, came to the Aquarium from Brazil. She was rescued and deemed non-releasable to the wild. She and Floyd are also parents to Skipper, Lily, Heidi, and Anderson. Magellanic Penguin chicks are hatched with a downy layer of plumage that is not watertight. The Aquarium’s penguin chick was taken after about twenty-one days to a behind-the-scenes nursery, where it will remain until its down is replaced by watertight juvenile feathers, a process called fledging. During its time in the nursery, the chick is learning to swim and to take hand-fed, whole fish.

 

In celebration of the baby bird, the Aquarium is offering the opportunity to adopt the chick through its Adopt an Animal program. Those adopting a penguin chick at the $100 level or higher before September 30, 2017, will have a chance to go behind the scenes for a feeding and training session with the penguins.

 

Magellanic Penguins are a temperate species native to the coasts of Argentina and Chile in South America. It takes between thirty-eight to forty-three days of incubation before a Magellanic Penguin egg will hatch. The parents take turns incubating the eggs and feeding the chicks after they hatch.

 

WHEN:            On exhibit starting Tuesday, August 8, 2017 – Aquarium opens to public at 9:00 a.m. See all the coverage with the hashtag #AOPpenguins.

 

WHERE:         Aquarium of the Pacific, 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA 90802

MAM, the leading designer brand of award-winning, medically sound and innovative baby products debuts new designs for its signature MAM Perfect Pacifier which has now been clinically proven to support healthy jaw and tooth development. The MAM Perfect Night, a glow in the dark pacifier is now offered as a new design.

A recent independent study by Dr. Yvonne Wagner, a pediatric dentist at the Jena University Hospital (GER)* examined the effects of the MAM Perfect pacifiers on the development of the teeth and jaws. The study shows that switching from a conventional pacifier to the MAM Perfect minimized the risk of developing an open bite and an increased overbite. The University Clinic of Dentistry in Vienna, Austria carried out another series of independent tests** on the MAM Perfect and has reported similar results. “In my opinion, the MAM Perfect is the tooth-friendliest of all pacifiers tested”, remarked Professor Hans-Peter Bantleon, Head of the Department of University Clinic of Dentistry Vienna (Austria).

 

The MAM Perfect’s ultra-thin neck is 60% thinner and four times more flexible, making it the thinnest and most flexible pacifier on the market***.  Therefore, teeth have more room to grow and the risk of misalignment is reduced. The ultra-flexible nipple also makes soothing easier for baby.  The pacifier’s unique nipple with MAM’s SkinSoft™ silicone surface is so soft and feels more like mom that it is accepted by 94% of babies****.

 

The MAM Perfect comes in a convenient storage case that allows the pacifier to be quickly sterilized in a microwave, reassuring parents of the health protection for their children. An easy hold button is also featured on the pacifier making it simple for baby to grab and easy for parents to attach to a pacifier clip.  Its curved shield, big air holes and innovative inside surface comforts baby and helps to prevent skin irritation.

 

Offered in a range of designs featuring cute and whimsical animals and cheerful stars and moons for babies of all ages (0-6 months and 6+ months), the new MAM Perfect and MAM Perfect Night pacifiers are available exclusively in Babies “R” Us stores nationwide and online http://www.toysrus.com/search/index.jsp?kwCatId=&kw=mam%20perfect%20pacifier&keywords=mam%20perfect%20pacifier&origkw=mam+perfect+pacifier&sr=1&ff=Taxonomy&fg=Category&fd=&fv=2254197.  The pacifiers are sold in a single pack at a recommended retail pricing of $5.49 and in a two-pack with a recommended retail of $8.99.
