If snacking was just up to my toddler, our diets would be made up of 90% crackers. At this age, finding the right foods for those little bellies can be tricky, especially since their preferences flip-flop from one day to the next. A busy family need snacks that are yummy and nutritious, but also quick and easy to make. Here are three of my favourite recipes for egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and no-sugar-added snacks.

The Transition to Parenthood: 5 (More) Things I Didn’t Consider

Hello dear readers! I’m sorry I disappeared for a little while. Life with a toddler is busier than I have ever experienced before. Busier than a full course load and 30+ rehearsal hours a week when I was studying theatre at Queen’s University.

People seemed to have appreciated the first post in this series, so why not a second? Here we go.
