5 Healthy Snack Options, Kid-Approved!

Who doesn’t love a good snack? We are always snacking in our home and also while on the go, so keeping healthy options in our kitchen is a total must.

SNACK IDEAS FOR PICKY TODDLERS AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET

Aimery started to become a picky eater around his second birthday. It came as such a surprise to me since he never fought me about food before!

Developmental Milestones for Two Year Olds

Aimery's second birthday is coming up in a few weeks, and all I can think is "Wow, I made it." Although I'm officially in the terrible twos (well, we've been here a while!), I have finally made it through the hardest years of his life.

3 Tips for Parents Wanting to Live a Healthier Lifestyle

Over the past six months, I have been on a journey to live a healthier lifestyle. Last year, my life was spinning out of control with our move and custody battle!

I decided to find time that I "didn't have" and go to the gym at least three times a week. I decided to make myself an actual breakfast instead of eating a half-eaten piece of Aimery's leftover toast while running off to work. I started drinking my coffee while it was hot, instead of after it's been microwaved three times and still finishing it cold. Does this sound familiar to you?

At the end of every year, I like to reflect back on my last year and make goals to better
myself for the coming year. For 2018, the only thing I want is to be healthier. I don't have a
