Why Are Young Kids Being Fed White Crackers at Preschool!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Why Are Young Kids Being Fed White Crackers at Preschool!

I am disgusted. Why, WHY…… do preschools across the U.S. give white crackers to young growing preschool kids for their morning and afternoon snacks? This completely infuriates me!

Actually the answer is clear and simple. White crackers are CHEAP!

White crackers are cheap in EVERY way including the fact that they offer nothing of value to our kids. They have salt, white flour, no nutritional benefits, they don’t fill kids up, nor do they stabilize blood sugar or help bodies grow.

Are any other parents TOTALLY frustrated with this? Read More→

Healthy Banana Muffins with Peaches and Strawberries

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Healthy Banana Muffins with Peaches and Strawberries

My healthy banana muffin recipe with peaches and strawberries is simply delicious and is best served cold.

I came up with this banana muffin recipe because I had a huge bag of Costco fruit that I used for smoothies. I accidently defrosted two bags of fruit after making a smoothie, so I went to work on creating a tasty muffin so I could use up the fruit. I wasn’t sure how the muffins would turn out, but my kids loved the banana muffin with peaches and strawberries; as they were very light and refreshing.

When you bite into the banana muffin you will love tasting the little bites of strawberries and peaches; with just a hint of banana. It tastes so good! Read More→
