As fun as life with a toddler can be, living with their ever-changing moods can sometimes be a real challenge. Fits of stubbornness, tantrums and non-existent attention spans can be frustrating for parents. But while it’s true that much of this is to be expected as little ones develop a sense of independence and mature emotionally, the food they eat and the nutrients they absorb also play a big role in how they process emotions and behave.
With summer on its way, now is a great time to start a vibrant vegetable garden with your toddler. Whether you tend a pot or plot, you and your toddler can have heaps of fun digging in the dirt and learning more about food, where it comes from, and how delicious it tastes when you grow it yourself. Growing vegetables is a great way to foster a sense of responsibility and accomplishment in your toddler (not to mention, a great way to encourage them to eat more vegetables!). Here’s how to get started.
We all do our best to give our kids the best nutrition we can – encouraging them to eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, saving sugar for special occasions, and ensuring they’re getting enough protein. But one component of good toddler nutrition that I’ve noticed sometimes gets overlooked is the amount of fiber toddlers need.
Like so many holidays, it can be easy to lose sight of what’s really important on Mother’s Day. Cards and flowers are great, but it’s the experiences we share with our families that bring the most joy. We asked some of the Moms and daughters that make up the Kabrita team what they love most about the second Sunday in May, and what they’re most looking forward to this year.
If you have a toddler at home, chances are the days of hitting your favorite yoga studio on a regular basis are behind you (for a little while, anyway!) But there’s no need to roll up your yoga mat entirely – believe it or not, practicing yoga with your little one isn’t just possible, it’s fun.
