Being Kind To Our Earth and Our Bodies!

photo 223x300 Being Kind To Our Earth and Our Bodies!If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you may have seen my newest obsession- my Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker Being Kind To Our Earth and Our Bodies!.   I’ve been buying up organic produce and finding simple pleasure in making my eight month old baby girl homemade baby food.  I’ve made all sorts of combinations from beets, carrots, turnips, spinach, pears, apples, etc.  And I’m thrilled to report that baby girl is eating everything I make (I hope that lasts!)  I also made applesauce with my 3 year old son and he loved helping and seeing how applesauce is really made.  Imagine- Applesauce doesn’t come from a jar.  It comes from REAL apples!

I can’t wait to hit our local Farmer’s Markets soon.  While many of these farmers may not be”certified organic” they do not use harmful pesticides.   Not only did our Bucks County farmers market have in season produce such as lettuce, potatoes, parsnips and asparagus, but also local honey, maple syrup and hand made all natural soaps (phthalate free)  My 5 y/o daughter had a blast smelling all the pretty soaps and finally chose one called Lovely Lavender- made with real lavender.

 Being Kind To Our Earth and Our Bodies!

Since my husband and I have been on a mission to not only eat as healthy as possible, but also to be more environmentally friendly in general, I was thrilled to receive my most recent SVMoms Book Club Book: National Geographic’s Green Guide Families: The Complete Reference for Eco-Friendly Parents Being Kind To Our Earth and Our Bodies!.  This book really puts into perspective the impact each of us has on the environment from products we put on our bodies, foods we eat, cleaners we think we are “cleaning” with and ways we can we can teach our kids to love and respect the environment.  

I particularly loved chapter 2: How to Raise a Healthy Eater in a Toxic World.  The chapter gives many tips on how to teach kids to be “lifelong healthy eaters in a world of unhealthy choices.”   It covers a variety of topics such as dealing with picky eaters and planning healthy meals and snacks.   This chapter also reminded me to bring that bread maker we have out of hiding to make some homemade whole wheat bread!

While we are re-cycling everything, buying organic and/or local produce, making our own baby food, using our own bags at the grocery store and turning more lights off to save energy, there is so much more we can all do to live more eco-friendly lives.  This book is one I can see popping open again and again to learn even more about living “green” and taking an active role in being kind to our earth!

Dietitian Diva Reviews Green Guide Families Complete Reference for Eco-friendly Parents Being Kind To Our Earth and Our Bodies! in full disclosure. I did receive the book complementary from the publisher, but in no way were paid to review them.  This book is truly a great reference and we are excited to share it with you!

    I also enjoyed making pureed baby foods for my kids when they were little. They never did like the jarred baby food because it didn't taste as good as the baby food I made from scratch.

  • Lisa Hanneman says:

    I loved making baby food and really enjoyed trips to find organic fruits and veggies to make for my son. The Beeba was my best friends for months! I just wish I lived in a place that offered more local produce year round.

  • Erica C. says:

    I used to do the homemade babyfood thing too. My son loved cooked lentils. So cheap and easy and I don't think I even bothered pureeing them. My kids are now older but I still use that old cookbook "Super Baby Foods" for ideas on getting kids to eat veggies like eggplant and for recipes like homemade granola. Sounds like the Green Guide has good ideas too.

  • Anonymous says:

    a way of feeding is using squeezeable containers that will dispense the baby food to the baby.
    baby food manufacturers will be wise to use this kind of conatainer for mom's convenience.
