Celebrating my royal princess.

We’re not ashamed to admit we’ve been captivated with the Royal baby. We’ve had more fun guessing if it would be a boy or a girl, when it would be born, what he/she would be named, etc. There’s something so magical about being part of the royal family: the glitz & glitter, the pomp & circumstance,…

hungry kid gets beach ready!

We’ve been spending time up North with family this week–it’s been wonderful! Here are some of Schaeffer’s ‘must-haves’ for a day spent at the pool. What about you, friends–how have you been beating the heat? Spending countless hours at your local pool or lake? Holing up inside watching favorite movies and reading books? We’d love…

must-make (yes, really!) chicken meatballs

I know what you’re thinking. “There’s no such thing as a ‘must-make’ chicken meatball.”     “They might be good for her family, but my kid–eat a chicken meatball? Yeah, right.”   “Chicken meatballs are gummy and have no flavor, gross.” I know what you’re thinking–because I thought so too. But believe me, you’re wrong….

the famous burrito blanket

Necessity is the mother of all invention, or so they say. That certainly is the case with this DIY–my Hungry Kid loves Mexican food. But throw a burrito her way–and forget about it. There’s no two ways about it, that tortilla is not staying rolled. I’ve tried toothpicks–“they’re too pokey.” I’ve tried quesadillas–“they don’t taste the same!”…

After a week jam-packed with rehearsals, auditions, and memorization my sweet girl made her acting debut tonight as the lead actress  as Sofia, in the play ‘Sofia the First’. It was an unbelievably sweet evening–one full of great successes, new friendships and the budding of a great love of the dramatic arts. An evening with…

what dad really wants for father’s day.

It should come as no surprise that the hungry kid also has a hungry dad. And, while hungry dad likes to eat–most foods really–hungry dad really likes bacon. I bet your dad does too. Because, the fact is: most dads do. And most moms, most kids, most grandmas–most humans like bacon. That’s the really great thing about this…

stop force feeding your kids!

“Mothers should stop forcing or restricting their kids’ eating,” she said. “They’d be better off providing a healthy food environment, adopting balanced eating habits themselves and covertly controlling their children’s diet quality by not bringing less healthy foods into the house.” Science Daily, March 2012 read more here
