Horray for Hip Hip Puree!

There's finally a solution to making sure that picky little eaters get all the nutrition they need. Baby, toddler and children's taste buds change almost daily. Something they reject today may be loved tomorrow. Sometimes it can be frustrating. Relief is here with Hip Hip Puree! Kids will be getting a ton of necessary vitamins and they won't even know it! Better yet is that these purees are all natural and organic.

Hip Hip Puree! was created for the growing number of consumers who use pureed food items, particularly vegetables, as an ingredient in every day recipes. Eliminating the time, hassle and mess from the pureeing process, Hip Hip Purees are a great solution for parents who are looking for ways to incorporate vegetables into the meals that their children eat (i.e. sweet potato puree added to macaroni and cheese). Hip Hip Purees are also perfect for anyone who uses pureed ingredients to add nutrition, flavor and texture to recipes for sauces, side dishes, desserts, etc.
Packaged in four convenient single serving (1/2 cup) pouches, Hip Hip Puree! is available in four varieties including “Cool Carrots,” Rockin Broccoli, “Sweetie Potatoes” and “Jolly Cauliflower.” Made with 100% organic vegetables and frozen to preserve their nutrients and flavors, Hip Hip Purees contain no preservatives, fillers or additives.

Hip Hip Purees are super easy to add to any recipe and they come conveniently packaged in ready made frozen puree packets. Ordering is easy and the purees come neatly shipped and still frozen when they reach your door step.

The Birth of Corneille

I love listening to music throughout my day. I listen to a wide variety of music depending on my mood at that time. I love this new music from Corneille! It's smooth, relaxing and romantic. It's a mix of Al Green (one of my faves from the 70's), a bit of John Mayer. If you're a fan of John Legend, Tracy Chapman and Marvin Gaye - you'll totally love Corneille!

Corneille is making waves with his music around the world. Corneille is a major new artist on Motown Records. Though virtually unknown to an American audience, Corneille sells out arenas in other parts of the world. Originally from Rwanda where he escaped the genocide, Corneille used music as a place where he could go and forget about the world- even if it was just for a little bit. Don't we all wish we could do that? Well, maybe somedays, most of us feel like escaping. So why not escape through listening to his music.
On his American debut The Birth of Cornelius, Corneille explores smooth soul and acoustic-based R&B pop. Think of a mix between John Legend, Tracy Chapman and Marvin Gaye.

FREE Book Offer For Kids

Nearly one out of every 10 children in the United States suffers from asthma. This makes it the most common chronic condition among school aged children. Asthma accounts for the majority of missed school days and hospitalizations. This is all so scary both for parents and children! One of my best friends daughters has had asthma since she was only two years old and it was so scary when we first found out. Here is a great resource that's totally free!

Schering-Plough has partnered with the Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA) to develop Breathless Bethany Buttercup, a cute and colorful children’s storybook that uses a little girl’s story about her experience with asthma to provide information about asthma management. It’s designed to help parents talk with their kids about the importance of properly managing the condition.
