Eat Your Peas, for Mom *Review*

Do you have three minutes for your mother? EAT YOUR PEAS for Mom is a great book jammed packed with insight, advice, tips, truths and treasured thoughts. In other words, it's a 'thank you' for your own mom, and a survival guide for new moms!

I love reading quotes, and advice from gift books, but never really give them the time they deserve. This book will make a great addition to any gift, (Easter? Birthday? Mother's Day?), and will definitely put a smile on your mom's face.

I love the way EAT YOUR PEAS for Mom is laid out. With a picture and a blank area on the left, and a morsel of wisdom on the right, this book allows for inspiration and personalization.

As a mom, I could write my hopes, dreams, aspirations for my kids, or for myself as a mother. As a daughter, I could write something personal for my mother- perhaps a memory, a thought, or something inspirational for her. The possibilities are endless, and that makes this book more than just another gift book, forgotten and abandoned on your bookshelf.

EAT YOUR PEAS for Mom is one of a several EAT YOUR PEAS books available online through Amazon or at your local book store.

Save $5-$10 with Kellogg's! *Printable Coupons!*

So I've started couponing.. I had to do something to occupy my time while waiting for the internet to be installed!

On this great, new adventure in couponing *(read: I officially started this Sunday)* I have already saved about $30 in coupons alone!

One of the great resources in couponing is signing up for newsletters or email coupons, and I happened to find this great opportunity to save from Kellogg's. If you sign up for exclusive coupons through Kellogg's, instantly select which coupons you want to print out- for a savings up to $10!!

What websites do you use that help you save money when you shop for your family?


I'm baa-aack! An update of sorts..

I just wanted to take a quick second to say hello to everyone and say thank you for bearing with us during this transition. We're still in the process of relocating, but at least now our technical stuff is all taken care of. We even renewed our domain for another 2 years! (Our next step is switching to the wordpress platform, but that's a whole other post!!)

We switched our TV/Internet/Phone providers, which was an ordeal all to itself, and installation got delayed for WEEKS instead of days. It's been quite frustrating.. but we are very happy with our new service.

With all of our life changes, we've been having problems with Alex's school again.. but we had a huge meeting a few weeks ago, and hopefully are taking a step in a good direction.

Marissa is still quite busy in her last semester of school, doing everything in her power to continue acing her last few couple of classes. We are negotiating with a new mom to jump on board and assist with couponing tips, recipes, and reviews, and we're really hoping she will join our team.

There are going to be a ton of new, fresh, exciting, and fun reviews & giveaways being posted this next week. Also, we are preparing for a "Spring into Summer" blog party, highlighting fun products for around the house, spring-cleaning, spring and summer toys and activities, craft ideas, and recipes. We are so excited to show you how much we've grown in this "vacation" of ours.

If you have a product suggestion for review or giveaway, please feel free to send it to us at 4BabyAndMom at gmail dot com. After all, you- our readers- are the reason we are still here!

If you are a PR firm or representative, we look forward to hearing your pitches and learning more about your products or services.

So... that's basically our update.


General Mills Whole Grain Cereals Help Make Healthy Choices Easy!

From MyBlogSpark & General Mills:
According to the 2010 Report of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, only five percent of Americans get the three full recommended daily servings – a shocking statistic.

With many Americans making New Year’s Resolutions to live healthier, it’s never been easier to get the whole grain you want without sacrificing taste. Every Big G cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving, with more than 20 General Mills cereals delivering 16 grams or more. (At least 48 grams of whole grain are recommended daily.) Big G cereals are America’s number one source of whole grain at breakfast, providing America with more whole grain at breakfast than any other breakfast food from any other manufacturer.

Only whole grain gives you the vital nutrients from the complete grain. The health benefits of whole grains can’t be pinpointed to one particular component of the grain. It’s the “whole grain package” that makes the difference. In addition to fiber, whole grain contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients that help ensure a healthy diet. A diet high in whole grain has been found to help with diabetes and weight management, and it may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.

Get into the whole grain habit by just looking for the big white check on Big G cereals! Cereal is already one of the healthiest breakfast choices you can make, and the entire Big G cereal line is made with whole grain, making it a great choice. Big G cereals have the brands and flavor your family will love, including Cheerios®, Lucky Charms®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Honey Nut Cheerios®, Fiber One® and Total®.

To be sure the other foods you are choosing have the healthy whole grain you need, just follow these two easy rules:

1. Look for a whole grain symbol like the big white check on Big G cereals or the Whole Grain Stamp developed by the Whole Grains Council

2. Scan the ingredient list and choose foods that list a whole grain near the top of the list

Visit for more tips, additional information about the benefits of Whole Grain and how Big G cereals can be a convenient and tasty way to incorporate more whole grain into your day.

What are ways that YOU help incorporate whole grains into your diet? Which General Mills Whole Grain Cereals do you enjoy most?
