Did you know that the International Dairy Foods Association declares that July is National Ice Cream Month? So in celebration of this wonderful event, the ladies over at 5 Minutes 4 Mom are having a great giveaway. Like my friend, I strive for healthy food options, I love to feed the girls organic foods as much as possible. Horizon Organics now makes ice cream and I can vouch for you that it is yummy! If you sign up, you could win $300 in free dairy products! Go check it out here.

Cooking with children is an intrinsically exciting experience.  Kids love to do things they see adults doing and cooking offers them a chance to be a “grown-up.”  It provides a way for them to gain a sense of mastery, feel important, and achieve a sense of accomplishment.  When I get the chance to combine some of my loves, I do it as often as possible.  This little creation is yummy and healthy, but difficult when the little ones can’t wait for the end result.  So, I typically will do this just before we leave the house for an outing so when we come home, this yummy treat is ready for us!
