With 10 Chapters to go through you have plenty to choose from, the Brown Bag basics which is tips to keep food cool till lunch, portion sizes and more. Planning is important, there’s a section on this and it will help even the most unorganized parent prepare lunch easier. Don’t skip this chapter!

Not skipping the main bulk is fruits and vegetables, little extras to add in there for the kids and even a section for some healthy treats like Rosie’s Energy Balls and more. I like the additional chapters for after school snacks. Yet another daily thing that parents like myself sometimes come to dread. You just serve the same things over and over, well Katie helps take you through the steps and tips to kick up not only your kids lunch box meal but after-school goodies the kids will adore you for!

My husband and I are huge tea drinkers and my tea cabinet is overflowing because I cannot resist trying out a new tea! In fact, I think I might be approaching the ‘addiction’ phase of tea drinking! I try and find organic tea whenever possible since it is much better for our environment than traditionally grown teas. I recently tried some organic tea from Paisley Tea Co. and have been very impressed with it! Here is some information about Paisley Tea Co. from their website:

Halo Sleep Sack Crib Set Review & Giveaway @HaloSleepSack

With the American Academy of Pediatrics now saying “no” to crib bumpers, HALO Innovations has introduced its own Safe Sleep Crib Setdesigned to create an attractive and safe sleep environment for babies.

This five piece HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set consists of a Halo Sleepsack wearable blanket, SleepSack Swaddle, both in 100% cotton; two coordinating crib sheets in soft cotton jersey; and a matching crib skirt.

What HALO has to say:

“Too often parents ‘overdress’ the crib with quilt and bumpers, both of which can pose a breathing threat for baby,” comments Bill Schmid, founder of Halo Innovations. “The Halo SleepSack and SleepSack Swaddle are the only things a baby needs in the crib to stay warm and sleeping safely, and the soft jersey sheet provides a snug fit on the mattress.

My thoughts:
