Glam-O-Mamas Nutrition Class

Posted on

I’ve always loved cooking, I think it’s something that I’m good at. I swear if my “dream kitchen” comes to reality I would label myself a “chef” LOL.

So seeing one of the blog post of Jenni Epperson regarding cooking classes by Glam-O-Mama , I was curious & excited at the same time. I checked it out & found it interesting & immediately reserved a slot.

Proper nutrition is often times neglected especially when it comes to a baby’s diet . As mothers we assume that in the first year of our child, milk has whatever nutrients our babies need. Thus, we never tend to know the nutritional requirement every child needs.

I’ve noticed that there aren’t much option of baby food in our local supermarkets and knowing how tedious preparing & making fresh meals can be a drag for most moms. But I, together with a few other moms were able to learn that it only takes 1 main ingredient of our choice to whip up healthy dishes (12 to be exact) that’ll take more or less 30 minutes of our time.

Here’s a look at the 1st Nutrition Class organized by  Glam-o-Mamas together with Tiny Spoon.

let's get cooking!

Reb & Tina's introduction

apple puree (in white saucers)

The main ingredient is apple puree. (see the photo above)

Although the mommy cooks have also used potato, carrot & squash puree, it is not limited to those. If your little angel is one of those babies who don’t like vegetable much, you can “cheat” by disguising and or adding different vegetables in different dishes.

Word of the day was: CHEAT! I kinda like the context of it. LOL

 

Potato Apple Chicken with Red Rice

Carrots Squash Oatmeal

Couscous with pork

This by far is my favorite dish. I never really like nor eat raisins but when I tasted this, it was so good!

Excited to cook this for my lil’ babe 🙂

 

Mixed Vegetable Soup

Zucchini, Bacon & Tomato Pasta

Potato & Apple Fruit Medley

Brocoli with carrots

Tomato Soup

Gratinated Potato

Appley Chicken Adobo

Steamed Fish in Apple Sauce

Wholewheat Pizza

viola!

Tip: Use colorful table setting and utensils such as plates, placemats and the likes. It’ll surely entice your little ones!

Oh, also I remember  that the use of the color blue  (plates & such) isn’t very enticing unlike that of the other hues.

Not appetite-appealing at all, so I’m sticking to orange, purple, green & yellow! ;p

Funky Feet Giveaway for the Fun Fearless Babe

Posted on
 

 

Funky Feet Safari

My daughter Jasmine Gabrielle loves Funky Feet. She actually owns 9 pairs of it. Gabbie, as what we fondly call her hates wearing shoes mainly because she loves playing around the house all dressed up yet prefers barefoot. So as early as 3 months, we introduced to her Funky Feet and boy did she loved them! Now that she’s 8 months old and enjoying riding her walker and learning to stand on her own, she still prefers her Funky Feet over her shoes. I can’t blame her, these shoe like socks can fool anyone that they’re actually shoes plus they’re super comfortable & does not prevent the growth of my babe’s feet. Comfort & fashion are what Funky Feet has offered my fun & fearless 8 month old daughter.

Here are some of her pictures wearing them.

You see, the reason why I want to win the Safari Steppies Funky Feet for my daughter Gabbie is because I know she’ll love it the way she loves her other Funky Feet or maybe even more! Plus it’ll also be perfect for her to wear it on our Christmas vacation abroad.

Now win or lose, I just wanna share to all mommies out there that if your child is like my Gabbie who hates wearing shoes but loves dressing up,  then I suggest you go & buy a box of Funky Feet for your little one. It’s perfect to match any baby’s outfit! 🙂

To order simply check out this baby online store in Philippines or check out Pinay Mommy for more information.
