Simple Eating for Toddlers on the Go

I am a huge fan of simple, portable snacks to keep in my diaper bag for my 2 year old. It never fails that when we are out and about, she suddenly says "Mommy, I'm hungwy!" For this reason, I love the pouch foods that are so popular right now. If you go down the baby food aisle, or even the canned fruit aisle, you can see a variety of pouch foods with twist lids available.

Needless to say, I was more than happy when I got the chance to try out the Go & Grow by Similac pouches (This post was developed in partnership with Similac. All opinions are my own.). When I went to buy them at my local Walmart, I found out that they don't carry them, so I ordered them on walmart.com and had it shipped to my local store for free. It took 5-6 days, then I got the text saying I could pick them up.

How to Survive a New York City Trip with the Kids

With all its office towers, street canyons, and traffic, Manhattan may seem like a foreboding place to take your kids. That is hardly the case. Hidden within the vast skyline, highlighting the headquarters of big corporations to the homes of billionaires, are many kid-friendly attractions and activities. You can keep your children endlessly entertained in The Big Apple.
Here is a list of child-friendly things to do, but keep in mind this is not an exhaustive one.

Flavor Your Life with EVOO

We all know how important oils are in cooking. A few years ago, I started using olive oil in much of my cooking from the non-stick spray I use on my pans, to replacing vegetable or canola oil in certain recipes. However, it wasn't until I became involved in the Flavor Your Life campaign, that I learned about the quality required of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO).
(Disclosure: I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.”)

As part of this campaign I was asked to cook something with EVOO. I've used olive oil a lot in my stove-top recipes, so I decided to try EVOO in a baked product...specifically Honey Lemon Olive Oil Muffins. I found the recipe at Pinch My Salt. Having never used olive oil in my baked goods before, I was worried that the olive oil would have too strong of a flavor, but my husband and I both agreed that these muffins were phenomenal! They were moist, and the flavor was perfect.

No Spill Bubble Hack

One of the most frustrating things for me with bubbles is how quickly the whole container is spilled...then there are no more bubbles! I've seen the idea to tape the long bubble tubes to the legs of chairs multiple times and knew this was a great solution for my 2 year old, but for fear of having a sticky residue on our bench, I found the next best thing...cling wrap!

I just wrapped it around the bubble tube and leg of my bench and it has worked so well to keep the tube upright and free from spills. My 2 year old is able to dip the bubble wand into the tube by herself and blow to her heart's content!

I fully anticipate that when the bubbles are all gone, it will be super easy to unwrap and toss everything.

Have you tried this yet?
