Happy Spring! Spring Break is often a fun week for families, with kids out of school and a fresh change after a long winter. If you are a parent, you may wonder how to engage with your kids and entertain them during the change of schedule. Spring Break is great practice for summer vacation, when kids will be able to enjoy much more time at home and your family can make some fun memories exploring, adventuring, and doing fun activities at home. Kids will have lots of fun with this homemade moisturizing glitter playdough and imaginative sensory bins, as well as the recent Swan Princess DVD release! We are excited to share all the details with you!

Kids can be picky when it comes to food. My oldest daughter loved eating a wide variety of foods up until she was about two years old and then she decided to only live off chicken nuggets and yogurt. With three kids now, I've had to set some standards for lunch time to avoid creating different meals for each child or squabbles over the kids changing their minds about what they want to eat. I agree with parents who think kids should eat the food they are given and be thankful. Moms can also creatively encourage their kids to enjoy healthy foods. We never force the kids to eat a plate of peas, but their tastes have developed for fresh fruit, some veggies with ranch, and a good variety of meats and grains. I can help provide nutritious meals too by purchasing whole grain crackers, healthy cheese, Greek yogurt, and making smoothies that include spinach and carrots. I also give the kids a Probiotics supplement to help their little digestive systems. Here are some of my fun healthy kids' lunch ideas!
