These are the sweetest backpacks for weaners! My oldest weaner is the proud owner of the Papar (Owl) Backpack while my youngest looks fabulous in her Juju (ladybug).  The Big Kid Backpacks have extra room and are large enough to hold many binders!  I have had a hard time finding a stylish back for her that actually fits all of her school supplies (much like my purse).  Best feature? They are PVC Free, Lead Free, and Phthalate Free. Get yours at www.babybot.com, you can choose from Papar, Juju, Dieter (monkey), Yuka (bee), Nigel (shark), Percival (dino), Anastasia (piggy), Alexander (robot), Esther (bunny).

Flavor of the Week-Today I Ate a Rainbow!

Melissa, June 21, 2010

SO COOL!! This is a fabulous resource for any parent (and teacher)!!  The package was shipped so quickly and came in an exciting package.  I received The Rainbow Kit which includes: 1 fridge chart, fabulous magnets for each food color (enough for up to 4 kids), super cute achievement magnets, shopping list pad, Rainbow Bunch children’s book, and magnets to secure it all to the fridge! Let me start with the chart, the fabulous chart.  The chart has amazing, bright pictures that immediately caught all four eyes of the munchkins! The fruits and vegetables are cute little characters with big smiles that the youngest weaner thought was sooo funny! The night we got The Rainbow Kit my oldest weaner realized that we hadn’t eaten any ‘yellow’ that day so we went off to the store looking for a yellow.  Now everyday after we eat supper the oldest weaner puts their magnets on the chart and lets me know if we were missing a color.  She has had some issues with green but now she will eat anything just to achieve eating the entire rainbow, I LOVE IT! I am pretty sure The Rainbow Bunch children’s book was written for my youngest weaner.  The rhymes read like a fun song and she ‘sings’ along as I read the pages.  It has been our bedtime (and wake time) book for over two weeks now and she puts it in her bag to bring wherever we go.  While she loves the rhymes and pictures I love the content.  My favorite thing about the book is that it is educational.  It teaches kids the problems of not eating healthy foods and it doesn’t focus on weight! When I was making my own baby food I had a checklist on my fridge so that I could monitor the ‘colours’ the weaners ate.  I think this would be a fabulous addition for mom’s that can just put it up high enough that little ones won’t try to eat them to monitor their kid’s diets.

Recipe of the Week-Blueberry Melon Head (8+ Months)

Melissa, June 15, 2010

Blueberry Melon Head-NO Cook Recipe 1 cup blueberries 1 fresh melon 1. Cut your melon in half and take out the seeds. 2. Scoop the melon out of the peel. 3. Dice into small pieces or puree together in a food processor or blender adding breast milk or water as needed. 4. Pour/spoon into Wean Cubes. Remember to check the temperature before serving. Store the leftovers in the fridge for 3 days or the freezer for 3 months. Tip: Melon puree does not freeze well! We suggest cutting the melon into small pieces and freezing them that way.  If your weaner would rather have a puree, simply thaw the frozen pieces and then puree!

Flavor of the Week-Zoo Lunch Packs

Melissa, June 14, 2010

Okay, before I delve into the specifics of this super cute Skip Hop lunch bag, I must explain to all my faithful readers that I DO NOT have an addiction to bags contrary to all of my previous posts! Alright with my disclaimer out, let me introduce you to Skip Hops cute Zoo Lunch Pack!  I have the dog for the youngest weaner and I have been gifting the owl for the oldest weaner’s friends like crazy.  These insulated lunch packs can fit an entire package of Wean Cubes and a life factory water bottle!  There is also a little mesh compartment to keep the reusable napkin.  More? Well, the handle has a clip that can clip onto any backpack to make bringing to school a one step process.  Bottom line, they are super cute, affordable and useful. I got mine at www.babybot.com!
