The Kids Corner is a place to find kid-approved Healthy Foods and 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 which makes raising healthy eaters feel like a battle sometimes.
After years of working full-time and raising two very active kids, I have learned the importance of creating quick five-ingredient meals, make-ahead power balls, and grab-and-go protein snacks. This process as a parent took 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 parents and hope that your kids love them too and in turn, make your life a little easier for some extra self-care time for yourself!
I have tried and tested many DIY recipes I have created myself, like my kid’s homemade cough drops, inclusive Halloween treats, and DIY 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
I hope my lived experience as a mom & the content on this page is useful to other parents. Xo, Jo
“It takes a village to raise a child” – African Proverb.
Ants on a log. An uncomplicated and fun way to get your kids to eat veggies and a plant-based protein, right? For some parents this snack still works, but for many, there are allergy considerations to take into account, and the need to comply with your school’s requirements to protect those children who can have severe allergic reactions.
When it is time to go back to school after the long holiday, parents everywhere will be busy buying new clothes and books for the new school year. Back to school means that it is time to start thinking about preparing and packing lunches for our children once more.
Countless times we have heard about the importance of providing a protein rich lunch and healthy snacks for our children at school. For a subject as weighty as the food that is responsible for providing the much-needed nutrients our children need to grow, should be taken seriously.
