Healthy and Nutritious Meals by The Good Box

I used to eat whatever I like.  But when I reached my 30's, I started thinking about my health and as much as possible, I try to eat a balanced diet.  I started preferring vegetables over meat, and fruits over chocolates or ice cream.  But I eat a lot!

Luckily, I still have my slim figure (thanks to breastfeeding!).  The only time when I went on a diet was when I was pregnant because I was advised by my OB-GYNE not to eat too much so my baby will not be too big.  And it was really hard for me.

Admittedly, when I received my one whole day meals from The Goodbox PH, my initial reaction was, "Hmmm, looks yummy, but I'll definitely starve!".  Then I thought, hey, I'm a breastfeeding mom!  1200 kcal is definitely not enough for me.

Goodnight Moon Craft for Kids

As soon as Baby C woke up this morning, she started yelling "paint!".  I did not give her any brushes or paints but I gave her the pre-cut colored papers I prepared last night.  We were supposed to do this "Goodnight Moon Pasting Activity" last night but she fell asleep while I was preparing the materials.

Baby C's very own window!

Shapes Arts and Crafts for Toddlers

Since I bought Baby C her first art set consisting of brushes and tempera paints from Ma'am and Moms last month, we started doing different arts and crafts every weekends.  She likes painting and she requests for her brushes and paints almost everyday.  So I took advantage of this and used painting to teach her colors, shapes and even letters and numbers.

I started posting our projects on Instagram and on my personal Facebook account and I got overwhelming compliments from my friends and readers.  It felt good knowing that I was able to inspire other moms to try arts and crafts with their toddlers.
