After my son’s first birthday we started to really push the transition to solid foods, and I did not know what to expect. At 18 months he was eating only one or two meals day and refusing most meats and vegetables. He was still drinking about 24-30 ounces of whole milk per day. As a Registered Dietitian I was comforted knowing that he was getting an acceptable amount of protein via his milk intake, but worried that he wasn’t acquiring a taste for nutrient and fiber packed vegetables or protein rich meat, poultry, and fish. I started experimenting with new…

Every new year, many individuals and families resolve to get healthier. Wanting to get healthy is a great first step. But knowing how to get started can be a little more challenging.

We recently chatted with Erin Pelias, certified health coach and owner of Mommy Roux, to see what practical, easily-implemented tips and tricks she has for us, as we barrel headfirst into another busy year. We weren’t surprised to hear her say that good health begins with good nutrition — from day one. But what should we be putting into our bodies?…

I’ve done it, you guys! I’ve accomplished my 2016 resolution by completing my growing organically series and choosing better and healthier options for myself all year. I have to say, I’m pretty proud of myself since the majority of people (including myself) don’t make it past the first few months. My mind and body are also grateful for these changes that I’ve made. 🙂 For my final month, I’ve decided to replace all of the cleaning products in my home with green options. There are many benefits for using environmentally friendly cleaning products in our homes, and as a new year begins,…

All of my close friends know that I am not a cook. You will not find me in the kitchen making delicious meals or trying out new recipes. I can do it if I must (kind of), but it’s just not my thing. However when you’re trying to live a healthier and more organic lifestyle you have to make your way around the kitchen because those microwave meals are not going to cut it. I think moms can totally relate. Here’s why… When you’re a busy mom on-the-go, or a single mom, or a working mom, or an entrepreneur (like myself), you don’t always have…

Sleep. Once you become a parent, you realize just how much you love it and how much you miss it. Sleeping in is a thing of the past. Now your little babies need you every couple of hours day and night, and your older children are getting up before the crack of dawn. Then add your to-do list, the errands that you have to run, the chores that you have piling up at home, and maybe even projects, assignments and/or emails that you need to do for work…you’re completely fried. Not to mention days and nights when your little one’s get sick. Who has…

It happens every year. The babies head back to school, brimming with pep and enthusiasm — and return home with every nasty germ known to mankind, poised to take down the entire family (maybe even the block), like a modern-day, nuclear holocaust. This usually happens within the first couple weeks of school, like clockwork. You’ve got your usual offenders: the common cold, flu, and various stomach viruses. And then there’s Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease… What is Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease? According to the CDC (the Centers for Disease Control), Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease is caused by viruses…
