Anything to do with kids.

Let’s get started!Continue reading
So your little prince (or princess!) wants to be a zombie for Halloween this year huh? This might be exciting for some of you, and not so exciting for others. Either way I’m here to show you a super easy way to do some quick zombie makeup for kids that you and your kids will love! This while makeup took me about 30 minuets to put on, and came off super easy when I was done!

For many those two words can be pretty intimidating. It leads to hearing that your kids are bored (repeatedly) and they have been off of school for all of 10 hours if you are lucky. Summer doesn’t have to be a stressful time for you. Keeping kids entertained through the summer months is very easy.
You have a schedule. You are used the kids going to school. I mean your life was full enough. Now you have the responsibility to keep the kids active, happy, and create the summer of their dreams. You need tricks or a magic wand or both. You need 10 Summer Activities for Kids that Fight Boredom and you needed the yesterday.
These are some fun activities for kids at home.
Dental health is very important, not only for adults, but, children as well. It may be even more important for children to have the best dental hygiene possible because those teeth that are “just baby teeth” may fall out but, the permanent teeth are right under them and can be affected even before they come through.
Many new and seasoned parents have many questions about dental health for their kids. Things like “At what age do I need to start taking them?”, and “How do I prepare my child for their first time dentist visit?”. These things have probably crossed your mind a time or two when it comes to your child’s dental health. Here are some tips to make this exciting milestone a bit easier on everyone.

If you are looking for some great kids smoothie recipes then you will love this Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity smoothie recipe! This recipe has all the yummy fruit flavor your kids will love with a full serving of veggies too! The best part is, your kids will never know that their fruit smoothie has leafy greens in it, and won’t even be able to taste it if they do know! Smoothies are great for breakfasts and snacks.
1 c fresh kale leaves
1 c frozen berries
1/2 c fruit juice
5.3 oz container Dannon Whole Milk Yogurt, any flavor
Put all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth and serve immediately.
The key ingredient that you will find in every smoothie is yogurt. No matter which fruits, vegetables, juices, or supplements you add, if you don’t start with delicious, natural, whole milk yogurt your smoothie won’t be as healthy as it can be. We all want better more natural ingredients in our foods and I am happy to share that Dannon is listening. Dannon yogurt is now made with whole milk and all natural non-GMO ingredients.
In addition to yogurt made with whole milk, natural and non-GMO ingredients, Dannon has also pledged transparency and sustainability. Labels will indicate presence of non-GMO and GMO products which is a huge step to help consumers make better food chooses. They are sourcing ingredients sustainably by working directly with farmers they know.
If your like me, the main motivation behind making these smoothie is to get more fruits and vegetables into my kids. Trust me, they will have no idea you hid kale in this smoothie. But yogurt is also god for them (and you). The active cultures in bacteria help replenish the good bacteria in your gut. Those same cultures make yogurt easier to digest especially for folks who have trouble with lactose.
