Your Kids Would Approve

When a friend of mine told me about this awesome website called Kid Kritics Approved, I had to know more! I got the chance to speak with Ellen Briggs (Food Consultant, Co-Founder of Family Food Experts, & Author) about their mission. She is very excited and determined and let me tell ya, it is very contagious! When you find a product with the KKA (Kid Kritic Approved) seal on it, you can be confident your children will be eating healthier ingredients that other kids approved of! That means great tasting too! Being the mother of a very picky 8 yr old I need all the help I can get with feeding him healthy food. If it was loved by 70% of other kids his age then there's a good chance he might just love it too. I shared with Ellen about my son's picky ways and she suggested that I let him help me prepare the meals. He will be my little Sous Chef from now on. Check out these Kid Kritics at work

There is so much going on for the health of our kids and families, so read carefully. Find out here how a product and recipe earns a KKA seal. This website has KKA recipes for every meal of the day! Not only that, but the grocery list along with it. I love that because it makes the shopping so much easier. You can also find a list of featured Kid Kritic Approved brands. Really try out these recipes Moms and leave your comments or feedback about them. The KKA team wants to know what you think! If you have a recipe that is healthy and your kids love, then you can email them and they may have their Kid Kritics try it out if it meets certain standards. They even give you suggestions on how to make it healthier if need be. You can also sign up to be a Healthy Recipe Mom. "Moms from around the country have signed up for our Healthy Recipe Moms group! Healthy Recipe Moms are periodically (2-3 times a year) asked to receive FREE Kid Kritics Approved products in the mail to try in their favorite recipes. Then they submit their recipes to us to post on our site."
Every Friday they have a guest speaker on their radio program. Friday 9.16.11 (Noon EDT) Amy Smith will be talking about "The Business of Motherhood." Here's a synopsis: "From time issues on feeding your kids to what to feed them… from scheduling your children to budgets, Amy Smith (www.MomTiniLounge.com) is here to help you with tools you need to function as a mom, probably a working mom.  She knows the job of being a mother is like managing a business.

"So hearty it will stand up to anything you can throw at it or in between it, be it roasted chicken or grilled salmon. And the oats add texture to keep things interesting. Made with stuff you can pronounce and ingredients you recognize." Whew....did you get all that?! I hope I didn't leave anything out. So check out the site, "like" them on Facebook, and if you have any questions about anything go ahead and post them in the comment section. I will be happy to forward them to Ellen and the KK Team  and she will get those answers for you. I end this with Ellen's sign off - For the health of your family.
