    7 good food tips for smart toddlers

    1. Skip the advertising and go for the foods that will power their bodies for life – give them as many vegetables as possible in as many forms – each is a packet of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that will help your child’s engines power. 

    2. Power pack their foods – kids bodies are super engines powering all the functions they need for optimum performance – muscles, brain power, processing and cleaning stations, growth and repair area etc etc.  

    3. Add foods that naturally sweeten food plus give them valuable vitamins minerals and roughage.  For babies stewed foods – add pumpkin and squash or sweet potato to sweeten the taste.  Use nutrient packed tomato sauces and pasta sauces with vegetables and meats giving them foods rich in vitamins and minerals.

    4. For toddlers move to raw carrots, organic frozen peas and corn, steam yellow squash, peppers and broccoli. 

    5. Have fun with your food - we call broccoli “trees”.  We use fun names for different shaped pasta –we call penne pasta, telescope pasta and give them some raw pasta to look through while waiting for their dinner.  Spaghetti pasta is snake pasta because it slithers like a snake.

    6. Rather than using ketchup or store brought tomato sauce we always make extra pasta sauce packed with vegetablesand give that to the kids to replace ketchup.  

    7. To encourage the kids to eat some veggies we give them “dipping sauce” using some of the pasta sauce.  Broccoli trees taste great when dipped in some warmed pasta sauce as do carrot sticks and the kids love dipping them.  (Remember don’t overcook them or they fall apart – aldante is the go here).

    Snapatoonies - “A Must Own” DVD

    As one of the few series out there designed for toddlers instead of preschoolers, this Snapatoonies series is a must have for every parent. Offering variety with consistency, the DVDs are all interactive, focused on vital basic concepts, and simply animated to allow the toddler brain to focus and process. 

    Numbers, colors, animals, fruit, and shapes are the basic ideas presented, but are just the beginning. Just as with life, learning opportunities are waiting around every corner. Teachable moments are seized to provide depth, but accessibility to the content. 

    The varying character hosts and plot lines make this series one that bucks the repetitive pattern of so many children’s series. The journey through the episodes doesn’t feel like a broken record. My child interacts, learns, remembers, and makes life connections.

    This is a great supplement to the early learning activities we are doing with our children each day. Highly recommended by this parent and teacher.

    "Wonderful, fun shows "…

    What a wonderful show.  I just finished watching this with my grandson.  It is so refreshing to see such a likable show that teaches the kids so much.  I felt like it was just like the times we sat down and read together.  I am so happy my grandson will have these shows.

    Snapatoonies - Brain Fact No 4. New Neurons

    Did you know that new neurons can be made throughout our life?  

    When we undertake mental activity, it promotes the production of new neurons in the brain.  So, what are you doing to make new neurons today?

    This is one reason it is so important to stimulate learning in toddlers - they are making millions of neuron connections everyday.  

    Snapatoonies is brain food for toddlers…

    …as always….a kids best friend zoo-logic:

Reading the dog a bedtime story may not be such a silly idea after all. A recent study, conducted through the school summer holidays of 2010, got second-grade students of varying abilities to read aloud to either dogs or people for thirty minutes once a week. The research produced some surprising results. Those children who had read to people actually displayed a slight decline in reading ability, as well as in their attitude towards reading, whereas - remarkably - those who read to dogs showed an increase in both of these measures. In addition, of the nine students assigned to read to people, a third dropped out of the study before completion. No children left the dog group. Though the results were small and not statistically significant in the case of this experiment, the study has opened up an area for further research on the therapeutic impacts of reading with dogs. The findings so far suggest nevertheless that reading with dogs could help to prevent skills from dropping over the course of the summer holidays and encourage a positive attitude towards reading which is so important in learning.(This research isn’t truly zoology-related, but I just thought the idea of kids reading to dogs was really adorable!)Ref: Lenihan et al.
