The Environmental Working Group this week announced its 2016 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce™. It’s something I have always read and followed. Basically, the list details the fruits and vegetables with the highest amounts of pesticide residue. This year, strawberries top the list. Considering the average American eats about eight pounds of strawberries every [...]

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 [...]

  This is a quick hit. Today, October 25, and over the next few days (Oct. 26 and 27) there is going to be a GMO Mini Summit. Some of the heavy-hitters in the No GMO movement are going to be discussing the future of food live on the Internet and via teleconference. Whether you’re [...]

We went to Big Girl’s 10-year-old well visit. To quote my doctor, “There’s nothing going on at all,” on the puberty front. She really didn’t have to tell me that. (Although, yes, I asked.) The kid is skinny and tall and as flat as a board. There’s no hair anywhere except her head. Thank goodness. [...]

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.

Kid Food: Revisited

Plenty of people out in blogger land regularly bemoan the fact that “kid food,” for most people, is fried, fake, and/or filled with artificial colors or flavors. It’s my turn, I guess. We’ve got a big kid-centric event coming up. We’ve gone for the past five years, and it’s always lots of fun. Quite honestly, [...]

“Do you have any of the Boar’s Head Natural line?” My question was really rhetorical since I was standing at the deli counter of my local Stop & Shop staring at a giant banner touting the stuff.  The guy in the white coat and cute paper hat groaned. “Yes, we do, but it’s going to [...]

I’m tired today. Tired of being the one who had to tell a group of parents not to bring snacks with food dyes or high fructose corn syrup to our meetings. I just couldn’t deal with the fallout of those two ingredients, which made the group bounce off the walls. I’m fairly sure those who [...]

Food: Keep On Trying

Big Girl, as I have mentioned before, is a great eater. She will try anything. She likes most of what she tries. Little Girl is not her sister. Yes, she eats broccoli and sweet potatoes. She loves hummus. But she’s not one to just jump at the chance to try kale, for example. This week, [...]
