Food


We love food in this house and I'm always on the look-out for healthy options for our kids. 
I don't give our kids anything with High fructose Corn Syrup, we stay away from MSG (since I'm allergic) and also keep our distance from partially hydrogenated oils and more lovely ingredients of the like. 

**by way of a disclaimer... this is not a post teaching or telling you how to feed your kids. Its how WE feed our kids and I do not expect everyone to think its right or want to copy us. 

With that said, I have some yummy food "plugs" for you moms out there. 
I think the following things all came from Trader Joe's, which is a great place to shop if you're tying to go organic. Although I'm starting to see organic options popping up everywhere! Yay. 
1.) Multigrain Baking and Pancake mix is amazing stuff! It comes in the box, but has all the ingredients of a homemade mix, with nothing yucky added. Our kids love when I make pancakes out of it, especially when I add blueberries. 
2.) 100 calorie pack cookies. These come in all sorts of flavors and are SO yummy and very healthy. We love the chocolate flavor and the cinnamon graham. 
3.) Organic black bean, split pea, clam chowder and minestrone soups! Yum. These are our favorites. My kids like the clam chowder and black bean the best, but I love them all. :) 
They have no MSG and are preservative free. Nice. 

Anyway, there you have it. There's lots more, but I guess if you want to see them you'll have to come visit. :)

Oh, that Greek yogurt is the best! Our kids love it and its super fattening, with good fats.
Their fish is yummy too... all kinds.

Your post made me realize that I NEED to go Trader Joe's! I'll have to try that pancake mix. I have been buying a 10 grain mix from Winco for a long time, but I like to try different ones too.

I love their Ezekiel bread too!

The Ezekiel bread is super yummy and one of the only brands that doesn't have the HFCS in it. Scary...
