A few weeks ago Little Girl started complaining that her belly hurt. Always at night. She’s not a complainer so I took her seriously, especially after the night she cried for two hours. That Monday I called the pediatrician. When we talked to her she said she wanted us to start keeping a food diary [...]

It’s going on Month Five of my stomach woes. They started when my husband and I got food poisoning. It was June 6. I know this because my little one’s pre-k graduation was on the 7th. I spent the entire night of the 6th in the bathroom — and most of the morning of the [...]

The house is pretty much free of high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, and preservatives except for the occasional package of Twizzlers or Sour Patch Kids that makes their way in every so often. (When we host game night we let our guests bring whatever they want and even supply the junk food, too.) There [...]

I’m always fascinated by the way kids think. Why they do the things that they do. I love how loyal they are. I also love how susceptible they are to suggestion. I can vividly remember getting Big Girl to eat her dinner by telling her that so-and-so, a friend from nursery school, LOVED what we [...]

Review: Barilla Microwaveable Meals

Pros: Simple, flavorful pasta and sauces; reasonable price; little to no cleanup; no preservatives; short ingredient list Cons: Not organic; plastics — even polypropylene (notated as recycle symbol 5) — can leach chemicals into food. Cost: $3.29 per package I got an email from Barilla’s PR woman asking if I’d like to learn more about [...]

I could come up with a great way to start this post, but Walt Disney Co. did a bang-up job with its own press release so I’ll let it tell its own story: Building on its landmark nutrition guidelines established in 2006, The Walt Disney Company [on June 5] became the first major media company [...]
