Getting Toddlers to Eat Veggies

I have finally found a way to get my kids their vegetables!! 

I’ve struggled with my son, who is a picky eater, for many years on ways to get him his vegetables. When he began eating real food as a toddler, I could not get him to eat his vegetables so I tried everything including juicing, but I just couldn’t get him to eat his vegetables.

Many of you know I love Shakeology, and sometimes I could get my son to drink a shake, but he doesn’t always like the thickness of it . We also had an amazing pediatrician approved drink called Daily Sunshine that he will drink sometimes, but he doesn’t always seem to like milk.

The idea came to me as I was making my Shakeology one morning.  Knowing I wasn’t going to get all my vegetables in for the day, I added a Power Greens Boost, which is a great way to get all of those green veggies full of all the nutrients your body needs. I decided I was going to try it with my picky eater son.

I decided to sprinkle some of the Power Greens Boost into a sugar free drink after his nap to see if he would notice anything different.  He didn’t even notice and I know he is getting his veggies.

This is super affordable and a great way to make sure your kids are getting their vegetables.  Shoot me a message at holly.hierman@gmail.com

1 Minute Business Tip Master Your Morning

My one minute business tip on how to master your mornings is to wake up early and figure out the best morning routine for success.

My daily morning routine is to get up super early and get the things I need done for ME before my kids wake up. I do my personal development, bible study and get in the things that put me in the right mindset to have a positive impact on my family and my team.

Get the things done that you know need done before the interruptions of the day come into play. When you only work a couple of hours a week, which is how much I work, you really need “focused time” when you sit down in front of the computer.

Wake up early. Even if you aren’t a morning person, try it and begin your day with a positive mindset.  It will carry you throughout your day.

Moving Baby from Two Naps a Day to One Nap a Day

Moving Baby from Two Naps a Day to One Nap a Day
Sleep Training is a HOT TOPIC among moms, right? To sleep train or not to sleep train… that was the question…

The more research I did the more I found that kids thrive with a schedule so we went for it. We have had our first on a schedule since he was 6 months old and we began with our 2nd son at 3 months.

Here are some super quick and simple tips on transitioning from two naps a day to one nap a day. Once you notice that one or both naps is getting more difficult (they don’t seem sleepy) then that might be a good clue that your child needs to merge naps. For both my kids this happened around 14 months; however, that’s not a standard – I’ve read that this typically happens around 12 months.

The way we merged naps was, I started pushing the 1st nap later by about 15 minutes every 1-2 days until he was at an appropriate one nap per day time. It worked wonders for us. Sleep is so important to brain development as well as overall health and learning. I 100% believe in the benefits of naps for a baby. Hope this video helped!
