27 November 2019 - A New Adventure
Hi there. It's Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com. The kids are growing up too fast! Fred has a new adventure ahead of him and Sarah's almost turning one. This week, you will find an easy way to make lunch boxes, Fred's new favorite activity, fresh breakfast ideas plus DIY baby toys.
The family: Fred is a headstrong 3 year old toddler boy, and Sarah is my sweet 11 month old baby girl.
Fred's favorite food of the week
Fred is starting Kindergarten next year, and I'm looking for easy ways to pack healthy lunches for him. I've started to make kindergarten lunch boxes now: to help him get used to it, and for me to practice.
This article shares an easy way to pack healthy lunch boxes. You just go through the list with your kids and let them help you pack healthy lunches.
Sarah's favorite food of the week
Sarah loves having a banana for breakfast, but I want to get more variety in her breakfasts. Here's a great resource with breakfast ideas for baby and toddler.
Fred's activity of the week
I made this recipe for moonsand at least 3 times this week. It uses coconut oil to keep the sand firm and moist. Fred loves playing with this sand and using his construction vehicles to scoop and transfer the sand.
If you find coconut oil too expensive, there are recipes for olive or canola oil moon sand as well.
Sarah's activity of the week
Sarah loves playing with "non-toy" things, so I thought she'd enjoy playing with these 4 home-made DIY baby toys. Next time Fred is with his grandparents for the day I'll attempt making these toys.

P.S. If you try any of these activities or recipes, let me know! I'd love to hear how you found them.
