Anti Veggie?

Do you have one of THOSE kids? You know the one who refuses to eat anything but noodles and yogurt:) I used to have one of those kiddos, boy howdy did I have to get creative!! Veggie pancakes, veggie packed marinara sauce, sweet bread with carrots, the list goes on and on my friend! And so does the list of things your child wont eat... but never fear! Help is near! Manufacturers are starting to gets smart (starting to) meaning you still have to read labels and make your judgment calls but! I have found a few products that will assist in the feeding of the small child. Pictured are Ronzoni Garden Delight Pasta-full serving of vegetables in each serving. Mott's Meadly's-cherry berry with a full serving of fruit and vegetables in each serving. Frutables by Adam and Eve-full serving of fruit and veggies in each serving. Last but not least Kraft Macaroni and cheese- 1/2 cup of veggies in each cup of noodles. Each of these products are B tested and approved and full of good things!! Happy Feeding!!

Hey! Need a card in a instant? A real, actual, factual, paper card... then look no further! Free printable cards-easy to personalize! Just thought you and your budget should know this pertinent information! 

Magnetic Tape

"All you need is trust and a little bit of pixie dust"(Peter Pan)....or an active imagination and some magnetic tape! Yes, that is correct, magnetic tape, a metal cookie sheet(or refrigerator) , and story props. Print the story prop out and color them or print out the colored version. Add magnetic tape to the back of each piece (may need two strategically located pieces of magnetic tape to hold the character or prop to the cookie sheet). Print out the words to the story, or have a copy of the book on hand and let the story telling commence! It doesn't have to be a beautiful theatrical performance just an animated telling of .... what ever story you wish to relay to your child! A few favorites: 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?''Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?''The Ginger Bread Man' or any other favorite you can think of! Just print out a few of the major characters and props from your clip art, add magnetic tape and "off to never never land!!"
