An easy mealtime option for Toddlers

Who uses pouches for their kids?? We swear by them for our home, travel, on-the-go, and daycare! They are so convenient, and most of them provide a fruit & veggie option. It’s a great way to get those essential nutrients into your kiddos, without the added stress of watching your toddler throw his/her broccoli on the floor. I find them to be such a help when I’m running around the grocery store just before dinner. It’s one of the only…

The Little Green Pouch

      Since we are an on-the-go family food pouches have become a necessity! But the truth is buying 20+ pouches at the grocery store every week is hard on the wallet, and the environment. So, I set out to find an eco-friendly option for my family. I came across the little green pouch website and started reading reviews. These pouches are reusable, dishwasher, and freezer safe. But the best part is they are made of durable, BPA-free, PVC-free, & phthalate-free plastic.…

OXO tot food containers – Monday review

   Now that A is eating what we eat and purees are out the window (with the exception of a few handy pureed pouches), I have to share how much I love these containers from OXO. I first discovered them from a child in my mom’s daycare. Her mother would chop everything into tiny pieces and put them in these different size containers. I told myself one day when I have a child (not knowing it would be so soon),…

Tea Tuesday – Youthberry & wild orange blossom

I have to start out by thanking the amazing employee who sold me this tea! She was so excited to share it with me, I just couldn’t resist buying it. I’ve always been a tea lover, and it’s grown significantly since graduating college. My fiancé bought me a beautiful tea set from Teavana a little over a year ago, and I’m realizing now I don’t use it as often as I would like. There’s also the fact that I need…
