Poor veggies are pushed around the plate in endless circles. The dog is under the table eating more than the kids. There is something about sitting down for a meal that makes children become stubborn and no longer hungry. Snacks for me are a savior. Throughout the day, I like to…

Healthy Smiles and healthy kids.

A healthy kid can be based not only on over all physical health. Oral health connects to not only brushing teeth regularly but making healthy food choices as well. Even though little ones have their baby teeth, taking good care of them now will not only ensure that the adult teeth come in healthy, but it begins to form healthy habits for when they grow up. With my first son, I was not the best at ensuring that his teeth…

Get Fishy With It

May 5, 2014

Since we moved to Florida, we eat a little bit more fish than we used to. It helps that we live only 5 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. My husband and oldest son go fishing every chance they get.

I know the second my boys walk through the door in the afternoon, they make a beeline for the pantry. This close to dinner time, I don’t feel like cooking anything heavy that will curb their appetite. There are many small…
