Seasonal Goodness: Delicious Winter Recipes for Babies

While the pickings may be slim for seasonal, local and fresh goodies come wintertime, there are still a surprising amount of options for you to try out while cooking for your families, and even babies.

I love the challenge of keeping things as seasonal and as local as possible, which in the Northern climate that I reside in can be quite tricky. But, it can still be done. I’ve featured the recipes of Catherine McCord before, as she’s a fellow contributor of mine over at Babble with her own column called Cutting Board Conversations. I was so happy when she came on board, as I’ve been a fan of her website Weelicious, for a long time.

She always has a plentiful index of seasonal recipes for babies, so I hope you enjoy what I’ve picked out for winter yumminess today!

Dairy and Sugar-Free Chocolate "Milkshakes" for Little Ones!

This is the sort of nutritious treat that just keeps giving. Right around 3:30 everyday, my little ones are hankering for a nosh of something sweet. A little pick-me-up, as we’re accustomed to calling it — and as easy as stirring up a couple of sippy cups with chocolate milk is, these are darn near close to being just as easy.

The best part? There will be enough for you too, and this sugar-free indulgence totally satisfies. Another great thing about this recipe is that you can leave out the chocolate, making just vanilla “milk”shakes, or leave out the almond or coconut milk to make a quick ice cream substitute! The key ingredient here are bananas, giving you all the creaminess your little ones (and you!), crave.

They won’t notice the lack of white processed sugar — promise!

New Year, New You: 21 Great Recipes to Refresh & Recharge

With the new year comes resolutions and goals, many of which tend to revolve around health. Most of us desire a healthy lifestyle, and as mothers, it’s essential to our well-being and our children that we take care of our bodies. Pregnant with my 3rd baby, I am fully aware of how important it is to eat foods that do my body some good and say “no” to junk. 95% of the time, I eat whole foods. I stay away from processed foods as much as I can, and I try to give my body only things that used to be or came from something that was alive. If you are a mama looking for feel-good recipes that can refresh and recharge, look no more! Here are 21 amazing recipes to ring in the new year just right…

12 Quick Meals My Toddler Loves

As a mom of five, dinner can be time consuming. It’s a process in our home! My husband is a great cook, so I am lucky to say — he makes all the meals. I’m better at cleaning up, so that is my job after dinner. When it’s time to eat, he makes the plates and I pass them out. At dinnertime we feel like drill sergeants, so planning meals makes things much easier for all. Especially when you have a baby! I like being able to choose meals that are Grayson-approved but still adult-friendly. Even though Grayson has only 3 teeth at 15 months-old — he eats everything we do, which makes dinnertime a breeze. However, it’s even easier when you can prepare quick and easy meals for all — toddler approved! If you’re looking to add some favorite dishes to your meal planning, you’re going to want to pin these right now!
