There is so much recent controversy regarding what and when you should feed your baby their first “solid” foods. While the choice is very individual based on the baby, their cues, and your feelings, it cannot be denied that a baby was not meant to survive on rice cereal alone. We’re here today to bring you 3 recipes featuring first foods for babies that aren’t rice, that you can mix into their early diet- and are packed with good vitamins to start them out on the path of healthy eating from the get-go.
Are you craving some good old-fashioned family fun? Well pack up the video games, turn off the TV and look no further than your backyard. As the weather warms up, so does the desire to be outside. Family game night is a wonderful tradition to have with your kids and one that they will remember as they grow up and have their own little broods. It is a wonderful opportunity to build and connect with one another without the distractions of our technology-centred world. These nights can help kids learn important social skills as well, like problem solving, taking turns and the importance of learning how to win and lose appropriately (think: no temper tantrums because big brother won the game and not them). Since the weather is getting nicer, why don’t you consider moving your game night outside?

Before you had children, you kept hearing about parents who struggled with a “picky eater.” You thought it was a myth or assumed that the parents were just being lazy. How difficult can it really be to feed a child? You proudly stated then that when you had a child of your own, you would not have this problem. And things probably went pretty well for you during the first year. Your child ate everything you presented and you started to think that this “picky eater” thing was a joke. Then it happened. One day you had a sweet baby willing to try everything, the next day you had a toddler saying no to the healthiest of foods.
Today’s article will not only address why toddlers become picky eaters, but will also highlight a few organic brands that will trick your toddler into eating their fruits and veggies.
We are also offering a giveaway at the end of this message so read on for more details!
