But it never fails that every morning there is a little, hungry boy asking for breakfast! So instead of some sugary, store-bought pancakes, I decided to make healthy blueberry banana pancakes!
Breakfast is referred to as “the most important meal of the day” and this is especially true for toddlers! Their little bodies have been asleep (hopefully ) for 10-12 hours so this is the meal that sets them up for their day.
Grocery shopping isn’t everyones favorite activity, but it sure is mine!! During my undergrad courses, I had to take a class that required us to complete a “grocery store tour”. We learned all the ins-and-outs of how to most efficiently shop for groceries. One of the most important things that I learned was to categorizeContinue reading “The Ultimate Grocery List”
In the world of nutrition, new health claims on product packaging are becoming more and more prevalent. Terms like: gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, organic, etc. However, biodynamic was not a term I was familiar with at the time.

Vitamin A promotes good vision and is important for growth, development, and immune function (all things little humans need)! Despite their name- “baby carrots” are actuallyContinue reading “BLW: How to Serve Carrots”
I have spent hours on hours researching what to get a toddler for Christmas (because obviously, he can’t tell us himself). In case you’re in the same boat as we are, here is your lifeline (aka gift guide) to get your little one smiling on Christmas morning!
Traditionally American parents started off feeding their children either rice cereal, pureed fruit and veggies, or a combination of the two. In the US, ture solids or “finger foods” are often not introduced until closer to 9 months however that’s not necessary!

Bath time has always been my favorite part of the day with Jaxon. It is so calm, relaxing, and the perfect segway into bedtime at our home. Jaxon had his first bath ever at only 3 weeks old (when his umbilical cord fell off) and has literally had one every single night since. He LOVES bathContinue reading “Edible Bath Tub Paint”
