Broccoli and Olive Oil Puree

My 2-and-a-half year old daughter has a love/hate relationship with broccoli. Some days she will eat half a stock of steamed broccoli while other days she turns a sour face away and refuses. My husband and I have at times resorted to using her favorite fruit gummy as bribery to get her to eat her […]

Work Out While They Play

Work out while your kiddos play. This is a new sentence I am saying to myself while taking my daughter to the park. Especially going to a park on those beautiful days. Sure being at the park makes for a perfect chance to crack open that book or just relax while they play their little […]

Teaching Through Imagination

My two-and-half year old toddler is becoming very imaginative. It’s amazing to sit back and watch her play with her favorite Paw Patrol figures, interacting with them as if they had jumped right out of the TV screen. She knows all their names, goes on adventures, and rescues her perilous farm animal toys from the […]

How to Make Flavorful Kiwi Banana Puree

We all love to treat ourself to a high-end fruit smoothie where you add extra vitamins and supplements that help you justify the overpriced drink you just purchased. Sure, you could’ve made the smoothie on your own. But it’s so much easier to let someone else make you a delicious fruit smoothy. Especially one that […]

Easy DIY Bow Frame

Tidy up your toddler’s room with this DIY hair bow frame. Firstborns usually get spoiled. Not just by mom and dad. But grandparents, in-laws, and friends. They’re the firstborn so naturally we all want to give them as many cute outfits, shoes, toys, and books. My firstborn is two-and-a-half years old and Elle’s room is […]

Banana Beet Puree

I will come out and be honest with you. I am not a fan of beets. My great grandmother and father loved to eat them. Even my husband enjoys them in a salad. I personally think they taste too earthy. Actually, let me take that back, they taste like what soil smells like when you’re […]

Green Goddess Pasta Puree

Babies, toddlers, and adults – we all love pasta! My little one can put down an entire box of macaroni and cheese at dinner. And honestly, mac and cheese is a guilty pleasure of mine. Instead of sneaking bites from my daughter’s favorite dish, I thought I’d make a new pasta dish that we could […]

Blueberry, Cherry, Spinach Puree

Oh Happy Day! Make a big batch of this puree and freeze the leftovers because your baby will love this one. It’s delicious! This puree makes me happy since spinach is antioxidant-filled and makes for the ideal veggie for babies around 8- to 10-months-old. When buying spinach make sure it’s organic and that it’s green […]

DIY Lip Gloss with Your Toddlers

My daughter Elle loves to sit in my lap while I put on my makeup. Of course she wants to imitate and do exactly like her mommy, so I give her a small chap stick to put on her lips while I apply my lipstick. She loves to smear it on, smack her lips in […]

Carrot Hummus

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks. It’s not just really tasty but also super healthy and packed full of protein. My toddler loves grabbing raw carrots and dipping them in hummus. So, I figured making hummus with carrots would be a nice change of pace for both of us. This recipe is perfect for […]
