Earlier this year, I was invited to attend the School Nutrition Association Conference in Boston. It was, to say the least, a very eye opening experience for me.

lunchingawesome-healthy-lunchables

I try to make healthy lunches for my kids. I do. I even try to send them with non packaged, made by mom fresh items for lunch every day. But you know what? Some mornings- well, they are those mornings, and we've all had them... and making that perfect, from scratch healthy lunch just isn't ...

fun-ways-spark-conversation-with-your-kids

How many of you have asked your kids a question and gotten a one word answer?   How many of you have carefully worded your question so that the response will clearly need more than a one word answer?   How many of you have kids who can still turn any question into a one word answer?   That happens here ...

When you think of fresh breath, what comes to mind? For me, it’s Trident. One of the worst things is getting approached by someone wanting to speak with you, after you’ve just downed your morning coffee.

Target has everything child(ren) need for the Back to School season, from supplies to apparel.
