Feeding Baby: Cookbook & Giveaway

by Sally on September 26, 2014

Blueberry Mousse from Feeding Baby CookbookI didn’t make my kids’ baby food. I feel like I should be attending some kind of support group with that confession. Back when I had my babies, I wasn’t making nearly as much homemade food as I am now. And frankly, figuring out how to juggle motherhood with my job and everything else in my life was about all I could handle. Beyond a few purees I made for my second son, I stuck to mostly organic jarred food.

The new book Feeding Baby by fellow dietitian Clancy Cash Harrison makes me want to go back and do it differently (preferably, with way more sleep). Her cookbook is full of recipes for everything from first purees to meals for toddlers and beyond. Even better, her recipes and approach are designed to help you not only feed your child nourishing food but also to teach them about the flavors of food.

Feeding Baby Cookbook

So her recipes include an wide variety of flavor combinations. For babies, there’s Pumpkin & Pear Puree made with pumpkin, pear, egg yolk, and nutmeg; Apples with Coconut made with apple, coconut oil, coconut milk, and cinnamon; and Buttered Wild Salmon made with butternut squash, salmon, rosemary, and lemon juice. For toddlers, there’s Arugula & Goat Cheese Muffins, Herbed Avocado Pasta Sauce, and Beef, Kale & Chickpea Curry.

First Avocado DipFeeding Baby is a lot more than a cookbook. it’s a handbook for teaching flavor preference, with tips on introducing new foods and “proactive coaching”–being positive about food and encouraging kids to try new things without pressure. And there are handy charts like this one you’ll refer to again and again (click here to get a PDF you can save and print):

100 Ways to Serve 10 Fruits & VegetablesThis book will help you expose your baby and toddler to an array of different foods, flavors, and sensory experiences, using a feeding approach that will serve them well throughout their childhoods.

{Giveaway} Applegate Summer Cookout Kit!

by Sally on July 1, 2014

On the Fourth of July, an estimated 150 million hot dogs are grilled, squirted with ketchup, piled with relish, and devoured. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all feel better about those dogs?

This year, I’m working with Applegate as an advisor because I respect their mission to change the meat that people eat. All of their meat comes from animals that were humanely raised and never given antibiotics or hormones.

So in honor of all the cookouts this weekend, I’m hosting a big Applegate giveaway featuring two packages of their hot dogs plus everything you need (from grill tongs to fun paper straws) to hold your own “Wienervention“, swapping your conventional hot dogs for better ones.

Check out all the goodies in the giveaway!

Applegate Giveaway at Real Mom Nutrition

Why the need for a Wienervention? See for yourself:

Ingredients in an Oscar Meyer Classic beef hot dog: Beef, Water, Corn Syrup, Contains less than 2% of salt, potassium lactate, dextrose, sodium phosphates, sodium dictate, flavor, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), extractives of paprika, sodium nitrate.

Applegate Natural beef hot dogs contain just beef, water, salt, and spices.

Applegate hot dogs also have about half the fat of regular hot dogs and 40 percent less sodium.

How do they taste? We hosted our own Wienervention with some friends on our back patio, and the kids (and grown ups) happily gobbled up the Applegate dogs.

Applegate Giveaway at Real Mom Nutrition

Applegate will send a Wienervention kit to FOUR Real Mom Nutrition readers. Each kit includes:

  • 2 packs of Applegate hot dogs
  • 3 packs Rudi’s buns (regular and gluten free)
  • Annie’s brand ketchup & mustard
  • Rick’s Pick’s relish
  • Wienervention apron
  • Grilling tool set (spatula, tongs, and brush)
  • Cleaner Wiener Frisbee
  • Applegate mini cooler
  • Adorable paper straws & napkins

{Giveaway} It’s Not About the Broccoli

January 8, 2014

Three years ago when Sam was a toddler, he went on a strike. A dinner strike to be exact. It went on for months, with Sam sometimes eating no more for dinner than a lick of ketchup or a couple bites of fruit. I nearly lost my mind. (read: “Dinner Drama“). So I got in […]

{Giveaway} Best Lunch Box Ever

August 2, 2013

It’s the second day of August, which means there are only 19 days left of summer vacation for my kiddos. Which means only 19 days left until I have to start packing lunches every day. And this year, I’ll be packing two of them. I’m prone to geek out over lunch packing gear, namely adorable […]

{Giveaway} Fearless Feeding: A Must-Have Handbook!

May 15, 2013

Like everyone else, I’m making up this parenting thing as I go along–occasionally getting it right, frequently stumbling. Feeding my kids is no exception. Even as a dietitian with a bunch of initials after my name, I wasn’t prepared for the curve-balls thrown at me by my kids when it came to food. And really, […]

{Giveaway} KIND Bars

April 29, 2013

I was never a big fan of granola and energy bars. To me, they seemed too much like candy bars, and I never felt like I’d eaten anything substantial–even when the bars packed hundreds of calories. But KIND bars are definitely an exception. They’re made with whole nuts and fruit, many are low in sugar, […]

Giveaway: My Favorite Green Cleaning Cloths

March 18, 2013

I used to have a collection of bottles and cans under my kitchen sink: sprays to clean the counters, blue stuff to clean the windows, stainless steel paste for the appliances, and a bleach powder for my white sink. That’s all gone. Now I have a stack of cloths. And instead of spraying toxic-smelling cleaners […]
