Many of us grew up thawing frozen meat on the counter and keeping leftovers far too long. Times have changed. Now that I’m a mom, I make an effort to serve my family only food that I’m sure is safe. The USDA has food safety recommendations to help us keep our families safe from the […]
Tips to Fight the “Food Fits” with Guest Blogger Joey Fortman of Real Mom Media
Now that kids are back to school and life is in full force it’s totally time to get down to business with the meals. I try as hard as possible to keep my son healthy, especially since I grew up battling the bulge. It’s not always an easy task to get your kids to really and truly understand the value of health and eating well! And if your house is like mine, you’re always fighting the food fits. I’ve learned a few lessons along the way and would love to share my tips with you! Remember..I’m not a doctor or dietitian.
Save on MAM Anti-Colic Baby Bottles
While I was breastfeeding, I worried about nipple confusion even though I wanted my husband’s help with nighttime feedings. Thankfully, our baby was able to switch easily from bottle to breast using the MAM Anti-Colic bottle.
Smash Your Food
First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign has raised awareness about the problem of childhood obesity. A new app called Smash Your Food, now available in the Apple App Store for $2.99, aims to make it easier for parents and kids to learn about healthy foods together.
Dr Browns Feeding System
I recently received several of Dr Browns feeding items. I’ve been using them with my son and am so very impressed with the quality and ease of all of the products.
My son was 100% breastfed up until 6 months when we starting introducing solids. He absolutely refused every bottle that I tried. Of course I wanted him to be able to eat if I had to run out so I continued in my quest to find something that he will use…
Water Bottles of Steel
Looking for stainless steel water bottle alternatives for your family? Unlike aluminum, stainless steel does not require a liner. While it used to be difficult to find stylish, BPA-free options for kids and the rest of the family, there are now a whole host of products available. We’ll be reviewing a few metal bottles for kids in the upcoming months and updating this post.
Healthier Hotdogs and Hamburgers: Organic Grass-Fed Beef
You probably already know that organic meat is free of antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones and is more nutritious for your family, especially for children and pregnant moms, but you may have had trouble locating quality organic meat at your local grocer or butcher.
While a trip to an organic farm is a great learning experience, it may not be a practical way to do your weekly or even special occasion grocery shopping. At Greensbury Market, you have quick, convenient access to premium-quality organic meats.
Little Chefs Cook Chinese
If your child is a picky eater, try preparing meals together. If your child feels some ownership over a meal, he’s more likely to eat it. Start by picking an easy-to-make recipe or by using a children’s cookbook.
I received a review sample of the Handstand Kids Chinese Cookbook, the newest book in their cookbook series for children ages 3 to 12. The Handstand Kids Cookbook series introduces children to the language and cuisine of other cultures through fun, easy-t0-make recipes. Ingredients and utensils are listed in both English and Mandarin.
Pump It Up!
As a breastfeeding mom, I’m really attached to my baby in the literal sense. Newborns need to eat frequently, with some “dining at mom’s” every two hours or so. If you want to breastfeed and go back to work, go out on a child-free date with your husband, or just have someone else take one […]
Kids in the Kitchen: Learning Tower Discount Code and Contest
The kitchen is the heart of the home. In most households, family life centers around the kitchen. It’s where we cook, eat, play and work. And kids like to be where the action is. (Need proof? I’m typing this blog post at my kitchen table while my son plays on the floor next to me with a […]
