Hey guys! Welcome to Hip Foodie Family!
This is going to be a brand new section on my website! Kid approved recipes, baking, product recommendations, activities we are doing at home and more!
I also updated my homepage! Be sure to check it out!
This section of my blog was previously called Mom Moments. Right when I started my blog, I took the time to write posts about my kids. Moments we were having, special memories I wanted to capture, advice I wanted to share as a mother and just some fun. This is one of my favorite posts. And this one.
I hope you go back and read some of these posts .. they are really special to me and I think they might be helpful for any new parents out there. Being a parent is hard work and I truly believe you need a strong community and family to get through it all. My hope is that Hip Foodie Family can provide not only some inspiration in the kitchen, but fun activities to do at home with your children and some support from one parent to another.
A lot of my friends are surprised when they see my kids eating fruits and vegetables. Don’t get me wrong! My kids are not perfect eaters by any means. They do eat their fruits and vegetables but if you put a cookie in front of them, they’ll take the cookie.
They are smart too. Did I mention that?
Anyway, my advice for parents out there who want to get their kids to eat more greens? Make smoothies! Throw in 2 to 3 heaping cups of greens (spinach, kale, collard greens, whatever you have), blend those greens with frozen berries and yogurt and more and you are set!
This recipe is a family favorite! We hope you give it a try!
And here’s a “berry” approved smoothie recipe that is sure to become a family favorite!
