Baby Feeding Tips
Posted by Nadia Carriere
After walking in to my exercise class yesterday, I noticed a platter of Halloween cupcakes sitting on the table. They were so clever that I thought it would be fun to create my own with the kids. My son is showing interest in stirring mixtures and helping out in the kitchen so this is the perfect time for me to include him in our Halloween preparations. Until just recently, he’s watched from the side lines as his sisters partake in all of the fun.
Thanks to these easy recipes and simple decoration ideas, you don’t have to worry about extended decorating times or complicated techniques – they are perfect for tots and kid!
If you’re currently expecting a little pumpkin, these would make a great treat idea for a Halloween themed baby shower!

We are currently staying overseas on an extended stay visiting my husband’s family in Palestine. Fresh and local fruit floods the vegetable and fruit stands in the marketplace. If it’s in season, it’s for sale. I couldn’t be more thrilled when I saw that pomegranate was now available in abundance. The price is incredibly affordable, so my father-in-law brings home several pounds weekly! I’m in pom heaven!

I’ve made it a personal mission in our home to eat as local as we can; as healthy as we can, without going on any fad diets or sacrificing on taste. We love food around here and I’m a self-confessed traditional food junkie. Traditional as in getting back to the roots of delicious, REAL food.
Which is why I don’t think that Halloween has to mean denying our little ones of some delicious treats, especially when there are ways to make them without all of the sugar and empty white carbs! I’ve put together some of my favourite recipes and a couple of my own, from my family to yours! Whether you’re celebrating your baby’s 1st Halloween or if you have more than one crawling and/or toddling about, these are the treats that you can feel good about letting them indulge in, yourself included. (Stage 3 eaters and up.)
Have a happy, safe, delicious and most importantly magical Halloween!

I’ve learned a few things as a second-time parent.
One of them is that cleaning out a many-part sippy cup is not my favorite task (I’ve spent many hours doing just this for my first daughter).
So when our pediatrician mentioned we could start trying out sippy cups for my 11-month-old baby, I was thrilled to see that Disney has a whole selection of “Slim Line” sippy cups, where the lid is a single, easy-clean piece.
Not only are they easy to use and clean, but they also display a whole array of favorite Disney characters. Check them out (and rejoice that you won’t be scrubbing dried milk from tiny parts):

Halloween is a time full of all sorts of wonderful treats. However, they may not always be suitable for your toddler. You should always avoid any possible choking hazards like hard candies, caramel popcorn, and chewy gummies just to name a few. Also try to limit your little one’s sugar intake as too much sugar isn’t good for anyone really. Just because your toddler’s treats may be limited, that doesn’t mean the ones available can’t be fun and yummy. Not only will you find these recipes just right for your little goblin or witch, you’ll find yourself reaching for these tasty treats too!
