Is it okay to give my 1y/o tea of any kind? When I go to Starbucks I get green tea lemonade and give him a bit and he likes it a lot. Can I just put some in his sippy cup?
So my kids (3 and 5) are pretty normal when it comes to eating; not super picky but they certainly prefer “kid foods” like chicken nuggets, pasta, hot dogs, etc. I give them veggies every night but often they ignore them or have to be nagged into eating them. Then my 5yo did a nutrition unit at school. Somehow his (brilliant!) teacher managed to teach a bunch of pre-K kids about vitamins, macr... More

I have been thinking on and off about going on the keto diet. Results sound very attractive to me (weight loss, boost in energy, low maintenance, helps depression, etc. ) But it cuts out a lot of the things I already rely on so much carbs and carbs and oh yea sugar. I feel like cooking for me is already a challenge (small kitchen, limited time, limited energy, limited money, etc.), but could ... More
Hey guys do you have any advice on what to do to help your lactose intolerant baby get all the protein and calcium they need? Right now he's drinking almond milk which has some added calcium and protein but not nearly as much as whole milk. And how much milk should my baby have a day if it's almond milk instead of whole milk?
My 2.5yr old doesn’t like vegetables anymore! He loves potatoes (of course) and sometimes he’ll eat carrots and avocado and rarely eat broccoli but he refuses to eat all the vegetables he used to like: Peas Corn Squash Sweet potato Cauliflower Green beans He won’t eat beets, mushrooms, spinach, peppers, tomatoes or cucumber. I’ve tried mixing things into sauces and muffins and meatballs b... More
I share with him either way but he just decided to take over my bowl completely 😂
Whenever he’s feeding himself he also likes to feed my husband, his brother or me.
I pack lunch for my kids every day and try to give them plenty of fresh options like meat, cheese, fruit, yogurt etc. I use a thermal bag and give them an ice pack, but by the end of the day whatever they didn’t eat is generally spoiled and I have to throw it out. This really bothers me and is getting expensive! Is there healthy stuff I can pack that won’t spoil if they choose not to eat it? H... More

BettyCrocker suggests fishing line as safe alternative to knives for cutting cinnamon rolls. I explained to the kids that's called a garrote like Slade uses in Teen Titans. This comment was followed by knowing snickers as they cut the rolls. I may not b safe 😆 #2muchvocabulary

🥤 Iced passion tea 🥥 Coconut milk 🍋 Lemon juice 🍭 Sugar, honey or other sweetener 🍓 Freeze-dried strawberries First, make the tea and cool completely. Put about 1/3 cup of coconut milk in a cup over ice and fill it up the rest of the way with cold tea, then add 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice (your mileage may vary) and sweeten to taste. You can make it extra fancy and add some strawberries too :)
