A Twist on a Family Recipe to Fuel Your Fancy

This is a sponsored post written by us on behalf of Friendship Dairies for IZEA. All opinions are 100% of Daily Mom.

Do you have favorite recipes from your childhood that you haven’t been able to recreate on your own? We all have meals and treats that we loved as a child that we crave every now and then. Growing up in Russia, my mom and my grandmother made me fresh cheese pancakes. Cheese pancakes are a Russian recipe, and they are so delicious. I have wanted to make them for my daughter for a long time, but the main ingredient, a fresh white cheese called quark, is so hard to find. I haven’t found it in stores near us, so I haven’t been able to make these pancakes.

Natural Rolled Oats Muffins

Pretty much every kid in the world is born with a genuine sweet tooth. Often times, it’s difficult to get your toddler to eat anything, let alone healthy snacks and meals throughout the day. When you have a picky eater, you might find yourself resorting to getting grains, protein and other nutrients in them any way possible. An easy solution is processed, store bought cereal bars. Even the healthier, natural options still have a lot of added sugar and preservatives.

If your kids love the taste of cereal bars, but you don’t love the unnecessary ingredients, give our Rolled Oats Muffins a try. Each “muffin” is packed full of nutritious rolled oats, organic applesauce, natural honey and just a tiny bit of brown sugar. Your entire family will love them, and the best part is, you can add any of their favorite fruits, nuts or chocolate chips to each individual muffin to make the entire batch customizable to every member of your family!

Ancient Grains Chocolate Love Crunch Granola

Ancient Grains Chocolate Love Crunch Granola

Granola is one of those foods that has just a few basic ingredients, but is so easily customizable to fit a variety of tastes and seasons. Granola sometimes gets a bad rap for having not enough nutritional benefit and for being overly sweetened. We think you’ll find this recipe to be a healthy balance of the two. This recipe has more protein with the addition of hemp seeds, nut butter, and chopped nuts. It also packs more of a nutritional punch with the addition of the millet, quinoa, and cacao nibs

Hilariously Honest Ways to Try and Get Your Kids to Eat

Motherhood, in some ways, is like a well-orchestrated magic act.  Clever rouses, schemes, fuzzy fabrics, glitter and glue hide our real motivation: surviving and hoping our kids turn out ok in the end.  These tricks-of-the-eye apply to the health and well being of our kiddies too.  Trying to get your kids to eat a healthy meal can be more impossible than finding the one, small particular green lego that your 6 year old wants from his huge bin of legos.  This is where mamas need to get clever.  Some moms are lucky and are born with fantastic eaters, but others are, welllll, not so lucky. It is that group of moms that have become experts in the three-ring circus act that most non-parents call “dinner time”. These slights of hand, imaginative stories and clever songs are what we use to survive the Battle of Dinner, night after night…and some of them are pretty funny.

A Beginner’s Guide to Manners: At the Dinner Table

A Beginners Guide to Manners- At the Dinner Table

We all want to raise our children to be polite, well-mannered and behaved. Having good manners begins at home and needs to be taught. We’ve all seen those kids acting crazy, running amok and not listening to their parents, and have often been on the receiving end of that behavior. It’s not a pretty sight. Kids are not born knowing proper behavior for varying situations; they need to be taught and have the opportunity to practice them again and again and again. The best place is to practice it at home and can begin at a very young age! Kids as young as one can be taught to say please and thank you and as they grow can learn more and more.
