Now that back to school time is in full swing we are all looking for new things to feed our children that they will actually eat and that is easy for them to eat. Some foods may not be a big hit because they can be hard to digest. As a matter of fact there are lots of things in our children’s lives that may be hard to digest.
I remember when I was pregnant with Miss Stalin, we did not have any feeling if she was going to be a boy or a girl. Genghis however knew from the second we told him we were pregnant that it was a girl. It was almost as if you could see the wheels turning as he thought about what a new baby in the house would mean to him.
“Will I have to share my toys?”
Yep, having a new baby meant having to share toys. And for a 5 year old who was an only child, this news was not easy to digest.
Moms look after their children’s every need from the moment they enter the world. And as toddlers grow into preschoolers and beyond, moms continue the nonstop but all-important work of making smart, simple, nutritious food choices. Although it’s not always easy, Kellogg’s can help. Made with simple grains of rice, Rice Krispies are as easy to digest as they are to scoop up with small hands – making them a great simple food choice that is gentle on little tummies.
The Motherhood is teaming up with Rice Krispies to host a Twitter party to dish about simple, nutritious foods for kids. We’ll be joined by special guest Dr. Laura Jana—a pediatrician and award-winning author who will share advice about choosing simple, gentle foods for young kids.
We are big fans of Rice Krispies cereal around here. I remember when Genghis was young I bought a box so I could share with him the ‘talking’ cereal of my childhood. He loved it and we had the following exchange that I will never forget.
Genghis: “Mommy, what is my cereal saying?”
‘I don’t know, what is your cereal saying?’
Genghis: “I don’t know Mommy, I don’t speak cereal!”
What: Some things are just hard for kids to digest. Rice Krispies® cereal is easy.
