What Do You Feed a Picky Baby/Toddler?



If you figure it out, let me know…

No really. My 2-year-old daughter is a dairy lovin’, carb stuffin’, peanut butter and fruit crammin’ machine. Oh, and of course a chocolate fiend. Those food groups are pretty much what I can get her to eat right now, IF that.

When I can, I try to sneak the veggies (which she instantly finds on her plate) into a smoothie; that way she never knows and she gets the nutrients and vitamins she needs to power through her day.

The one thing I can get her to eat without a fuss, though, is HappyBaby Baby’s First Whole Milk Yogurt. She loves it because it tastes good. I love it because it has no added sweeteners, contains vitamin d, probiotics, protein, vitamins and is USDA Certified Organic. It’s the perfect food for 6 months and on up!

welch's 100% juice with coconut water


Are you one of those people who gets tired of plain old’ water and needs something else to be able to get your recommended daily intake of fluids to stay hydrated? I get it. Sometimes water just doesn’t cut it!

One thing I love is coconut water. I actually drank it a bit back when I was breastfeeding since it helps with milk production. But, if you’re anything like one of my sister’s, the taste absolutely disgusts you. Well, now you can get the added health benefits without sacrificing your taste buds because Welch’s has 100% juice flavors with coconut water now! Talk about tasty and healthy!


Coconut Health Benefits:

Coconut water is found in young coconuts and is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and several important minerals.

Coconut water contains antioxidants that protect cells from damaging free radicals.

Coconut water is effective at replenishing fluids and electrolytes after exercise. It is comparable to other sports beverages.

It’s summer, it’s hot and you need something cool to get you through the sweltering heat; make up some tasty hemp and chia poop emoji yogurt-sicles for you and the littles!

I actually found these while walking around Walmart. They were in a middle aisle in a giant bin for less than $2; score!

I know, I know… this is actually an ice cream emoji, but kids and most of the internet claim its poop. I’m okay with poop.

I could have been super gross and made these into fudge poopsicles, but I wanted it to be somewhat healthy for my toddler since she likes eating 2-3 a day.

Don’t judge…


Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 4 grams of protein and 11 grams of dietary fiber. That’s over 40 percent of your daily fiber needs! They’re also a good source of good fat.


Two tablespoons of hemp seeds provide 10 grams of protein and four percent of your daily fiber needs. Like chia seeds, hemp seeds are high in fat (13 grams per serving).

They’re essentially a really great source of fiber, protein, fat, minerals, calcium and antioxidants.

OREO cookies are a favorite around here, especially the regular OREO cookie! But, sometimes you want to try something a little different, so that’s why OREO cookie is doing the MY OREO Creation Sweepstakes.  They want YOU to come up with unique ideas for a new OREO cookie flavor and you’ll win 500,000 if your idea is chosen!

I headed over to Walmart to see the many different flavors they offered for inspiration. They had a cinnamon bun, cake batter, mint, peanut butter, red velvet cake and more! You can find many different options for a great price at Walmart stores.

I actually picked up some of the red velvet cake to make up a festive Fourth of July treat today, which is both super easy and tasty with minimal ingredients!

Seems like there’s a dedicated day for everything nowadays, am I right!?

And if you’re a big fan of candy corn, then you’re in for some sugary sweet recipes on National Candy Corn Day.

Candy corn is not my fave, but I will try it every now and again. Something about it just makes my teeth pucker and cringe in pain. Oh, that’s right, the amount of sugar that goes into these cone shaped treats.

Candy Corn Donuts

This one may be a little misleading since it doesn’t actually involve any candy corn, but it is made to resemble the candy by using food coloring for the glaze.

Homemade Candy Corn Recipe

Instead of buying store bought candy corn, go give this home made candy corn recipe a try. It’s a lot more vanilla-y compared to store bought, which means it tastes way better! Although, it’s a little bit stickier too.
