For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 18 MONTHS+*

Looking for a quick and healthy treat for both you and your littles? Than you should definitely get your hands on one of the great flavors from GFB (Gluten Free Bar). We first did a review on their line of bars, but frankly, were a bit turned off by the amount of sugar in them (although it is still less than many of the other bars you find), and so wanted something a little, well, portable.

Many others must have had the same senti...

Betsy’s Best Bar None: Allergen-friendly Bars that are Simply Amazing

For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 1 YEAR+*

Finding a bar that really stands out from the rest is not easy these days due to the fact that there are 100s of different brands, flavors, etc. on the market. And with each one claiming to be better than the next in either taste and/or quality of ingredients, it really just comes down to personal preference in the end and whether or not you “care” how healthy and nutritious the bar actually is compared to the flavor profile.

Vegan Snack Packs: A Vegan Snack Subscription Service

Subscription services seem to be all the rage these days. Whether it be for full on meals, ingredients, or snacks, there seems to be something for everyone. Except for vegans.

Yes, there are a lot of vegan options amongst these various companies, but none that seem to solely focus on them. And while they will “work with you” in order to meet most of your dietary requests, by the time they are finished taking out everything you won’t eat, you’...

Theo’s Kid Crunch Chocolate Bars: Made with Whole Grains – the Snack You Will Want to Steal from Your Kids

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, In : Food Reviews 

 

For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 2 YEARS+*

Chocolate is not generally a food you want to give to your kids. In fact, many parents try to avoid chocolate, for both their kids and themselves. [Often] filled with lots of sugar and artificial flavors and preservatives, it’s not a snack that most people would consider healthy.

Fortunately, chocolate has gotten a better rap as of late, thanks to the high antioxidant levels found in dark chocolate’s polyphenols and catechins. However, not all ch...

Baobab is one of those foods that few have heard of. But with organic superfoods becoming more and more mainstream, it certainly won’t be that way for long.

As one of the world’s most nutritious superfoods, Baobab has become the foundation for Bonga Foods, providing the perfect answer as a wholesome snack that kids love as much as the health-conscious do. Plus, the fact that the cultivation, harvest, and selling of this healthy African fruit hel...

Tender Grown Leaf Crisps: Putting a New Spin on Vegetable Chips

For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 9 MONTHS+*

By now, we’ve all heard of Kale Chips – over, and over, and over again. If not, just walk into the Health Food section of any grocery store and you are bound to see at least 5-10 different brands, flavors, and/or varieties taking up precious shelf space.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Kale Chips and have come to definitely favor some brands more than others. It can just be a bit overwhelming to try and decipher whic...

O3 Chia Premium: Chia Seeds and Supplements that are Great for You

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 7 MONTHS+*

Chia seeds are one of those foods that have gotten a lot of buzz lately. Packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats, as well as other vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, these tiny little seeds really can be considered a superfood (aka, a nutrient-dense food that packs a ton of nutrition with a relatively small calorie count).

Like most foods, however, not all chia seeds are created equal, as some brands are definitely higher qu...

The Gluten Free Bar Bites: Perfectly Portable. Perfectly Delicious.

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 15, 2015, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 18 MONTHS+*

Back in January we did a review on the Gluten Free Bar (GFB). The response was great and everyone seems to love them. My only issue with them: is there is a bit more sugar (per serving) then I generally like to eat. Granted, it is low-glycemic organic agave, but still… Plus, sometimes you just want a “bite” of something rather than a full on bar (which is why you’ll find half-eaten bars in containers around my house :-/)....

YumbutterGO: Nut & Seed Butters that are Not Only Convenient & Delicious, But Have a Purpose

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 7 months+*

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again (ok, at this point I’m sure I’ve probably said a few more times than that), there are so many different nut butters on the market, it really takes a lot to make one stand out from the other. From unique flavors to unusual packaging, the only way you – as a producer – are going to survive in this nut butter filled world is to differentiate yourself in such a profound way, that pe...

Bobos Oat Bars: Chewy, Gooey, Tasty Oatmeal, all Wrapped Up in a Bar

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Thursday, October 16, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 1 YEAR+

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day, ever since I can remember. Whether it be a cold bowl of cereal, a satisfying smoothie, or a warm bowl of oatmeal, I could eat breakfast foods for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner – and literally have on multiple occasions.

However, I’ve never really caught on to the “cereal in a bar” philosophy, and much rather sit down and enjoy my breakfast then eat it while trying to ru...

Super Eats Kale Chips: Like Regular Chips, They Just Happen to be Made out of Kale

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, September 19, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 18 MONTHS+

Trying to convince a chip lover to switch out their favorite snack for a piece of baked vegetable that looks like anything but a true chip is not easy. Trust me – I know from first hand experience!

From the way it tastes to the look and texture of it, Kale “chips” are definitely not for everybody. Even when they taste great, it’s often the look of them that scares consumers away the quickest.

Raw Revolution: Get a Little Raw in Your Life and Try These Organic Live Food Bars

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, September 15, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 18 MONTHS+

With the word “Raw” being a health-food industry buzz word for the past handful of years, it can be quite a challenge trying to figure out if the product you are eating is truly good for you, or is just another gimmick. And, if it is as nutritious as it states, it often will taste “earthy” and “healthy” – two words that aren’t exactly positive ways to express the taste of foods.

However, “raw” products really c...

Neat: A Meat Replacement that is Actually Healthy and Delicious, with a Great Texture Too!

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, September 12, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and BABIES 7 MONTHS+

I’ll be the first to admit that the vast majority of meat replacements are not good. In fact, they are down right disgusting! My take has always been that if you are looking for something to replace your meat products one-for-one, by having it taste and feel like actual meat, you aren’t going to find it. These products are generally filled with hydrolyzed vegetable proteins (whatever that is!), fillers, preservatives, etc. to make...

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 2 years+

Like many, I was a bit skeptical when hearing about quinoa for the first time. But after trying it, I was hooked. And while it used to be pretty hard to come by, it seems like every where you turn these days there is some kind of quinoa-inspired product or menu item.

As one of the only plant-based proteins that contains all 9-essential amino acids, quinoa truly is a star in its field. Great as a savory dish or to eat in a bar or “bu...

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 18 months+*

When it comes to nutritional bars, it can be pretty overwhelming to find ones that not only satisfy your hunger, but are actually good for you as well. With many of the bars claiming to be healthy but actually filled with tons of added sugars, preservatives, etc., you really can’t trust them anymore, unless you carefully examine the nutritional labels – and who has time for that?!

Don’t Go Nuts: Soy Butters and Bars that Are Nut Free and So Delicous

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, August 22, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Babies 9 months+*

So here I go with another nut-free product review. Wasn’t I just commenting on how many “allergen-friendly” products there are on the market?!

…sorry, tangent. Back to the review.

When a product claims to be peanut and/or tree-nut “free”, this often just refers to the actual products themselves, and possibly the facility it was created in. It rarely encompasses the means by which the ingredients were transferred to the faci...

Nothin But: Raising Your Expectations in How a Healthy Indulgence Should Taste

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Thursday, August 14, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 1+*

One of the biggest misconceptions about nutritious foods is that they don’t taste as good as their less-than-healthy counterparts. From cookies and baked goods to everything else you can imagine, most people believe that you take away the unhealthy ingredients, and you take away the taste as well. This, unfortunately, seems to be especially true when it comes to dairy and gluten-free foods, and makes it pretty difficult when trying to...

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Kids 2+*


It’s amazing that some of the sweetest and most versatile foods come straight from nature – not from a factory. Bananas definitely fit into this category. As one of the most functional forms of produce – being used as a fat substitute, an egg replacement, a sugar replacement, and even a substitute for ice cream, to name a few – bananas are a simple and healthier way to enjoy many of our favorite foods.

One of my latest and favorite dis...

Olomomo Nuts: A Delicious Spin on Your Traditional Nuts

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, August 1, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and BABIES 1+*

Nuts are such an easy go-to snack, but it seems like they often get pushed back and forgotten thanks to the endless amounts of energy bars and other “healthy” snack foods that are on store shelves these days. Plus, nuts can get pretty mundane after awhile, especially when we are used to eating foods that are super-infused with lots of flavors and are nothing like their simple counterparts.

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and BABIES 1+*

Ok, I’ll admit that I am not a true “dairy lover” and am not a big fan of a lot of the dairy-based products that are out there. And while this probably has a lot to do with the way eating dairy makes me feel (ie, not good!), I was never one of those people who felt like I was “addicted” to milk or cheese or other dairy-based foods (although I am definitely a sucker for some good frozen yogurt!).


However, I do understand why so many people are ag...

It’s amazing how many people these days have some sort of food allergy, intolerance, or simply choose not to eat those foods that are possible “triggers” (ie, wheat and dairy).

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & Kids 5* +

No matter how healthy you are, and how “clean” you try to eat, everyone has some sort of “guilty pleasure” that is sure to tempt them every now and again. Whether it be a nostalgic food from childhood, or a new and delicious discovery, food is meant to spark our senses – and some do a pretty darn good job at that!

In fact, I’d say that the candy bars I used to eat as a kid always seem to grab my eye, even though I haven’t actually eaten one in m...

When your hungry, how often do pick up the food you are about to eat and think, “Hmmm, there must be a story behind this product?” Probably not often. And frankly, I didn’t either until I’ve recently started thinking about creating my own. (But that’s for another time…)

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 23, 2014, In : Food Reviews

The majority of nutritional bars and other snack bars are so overly processed that you would never be able to guess the nutrients based on just looking at them.

If only healthy eating were more enjoyable… With sweets and snacks, and all of those “sinful” treats, eating loads of junk is so much easier, and often much tastier, than eating the healthy stuff. At least that’s the way the majority of American’s think.

And now add to that the fact that you are pregnant, or are constantly chasing a little one around, and all those “convenient” snacks become all the more appealing, if not down right irresistible!

But just because you want to ea...

18 Rabbits: Granola and Granola-based Bars for Both You and Your Little Ones

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, May 19, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

 

FOR TODDLERS 2+*, MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE

Granola is one of those foods that has gotten a bad rap over the years. From being a food that only “crunchy” people eat to one that is not really good for you at all – thanks to all of the added sugars, chocolate, etc. that brands throw in there to make it more appealing – it seems that granola is one of those foods that you either like, or you don’t.

I personally [used] to fall in the later category due to all of the added sugars and high amo...

When it comes to food, less is often more. And this isn’t just in reference to quantity, although that applies here as well. Simple food really is a healthier option, and if the ingredients are of good quality, it often tastes much better too (not to mention the way that it makes you feel).

From freshly picked fruit, to just cut herbs, to honey straight out of the comb, these natural indulgences all speak for themselves, elevating a simple meal or sw...

The majority of us know how important it is to eat healthy and how much better we can feel with a well-rounded diet. However, all of us, especially women with our changing hormones and mood-swings, don’t always want to eat this way.

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & KIDS

Growing up, my mom always fed us pretty healthy. We always had to eat our vegetables, was given fruit in our lunch boxes, and dessert was not an every night occurrence. But I will admit that we ate a lot of snacks and treats that I personally do not want my children to eat (not to say my mom always knew about them)…

This isn’t because my mom didn’t ‘care’, but I feel that parents are much more aware of what goes into our children’s mouths these days...
