The Kids Corner is a place to find kid approved Healthy Foods, Feel Good Toxic Free Products and well… Fun Ideas! This kids’ page is important to me. As a mother of two, I appreciate the struggle, the negotiation and the amount of work it takes to keep our children well-nourished. Sometimes we only have 30 minutes from when you walk in the door after school until you have to be at the first extracurricular activity. Convenience foods look appealing because it feels like there is no time or energy to start cooking.
After years of working full-time and raising two very active kids, I have learned the importance of my food prep day. I create quick five-ingredient meals, make ahead power balls and grab-and-go protein snacks. They took some trial and error and, of course, they had to pass my hardest critics – my kids! But we nailed it. Here I offer you kid-approved snacks, healthy lunchbox solutions your kids can be involved in making, tasty holistic nutrition-approved treats and so much more fun kid food ideas. My passion is to share these with other moms/dads and hope that your kids love them too and in turn, make your life a little easier with some extra self-care time for yourself!
I have tried and tested many toxic free products for kids, which I will share here, along with some DIY recipes I have created myself, like my kid’s homemade cough drops and DIY Kids Safe Bug Spray. And let’s not forget the importance of Fun! I have a chemical free DIY moon sand and playdough recipes you can make with your kids and feel good about. Lots of great school party snacks and gift ideas that fit into your health and wellness mindset. I even have my favorite natural food based food coloring icing recipes for their Birthday cakes (cause we all need to enjoy cake still!). As I make them, I will post them to share with all of you 🙂
During my own transformation to health and wellness, my children were taken along this journey with me, and I have seen the difference it can make. The result was my daughter, who was plagued with allergic symptoms, had frequent illnesses and experienced anxiety had all these lessen over time. My son who had a difficult time focusing and keeping attention in school and complained of leg pains also no longer has these issues. Educating our kids while they are young can help them develop positive relationships with food, promote healthy brain and body development, and reduce the incidence of disease in the future. Together we can foster kids who rejoice in a healthy and happy body!
