Food Revolution Atlantic

Chef Jamie Oliver made progress in his home country of England with having schools and families switch to a healthier lifestyle.

Then he came to America and produced an amazingly informative show titled Food Revolution and took the country, and in turn Canada, by storm. As we watch a lot of American tv and so are impacted by the scenes of kids not recognizing common vegetables, the speeches about hair being in cookie dough and the disgusting attitude from the cafeteria workers in charge of handing out food but the presence ended there.

Until now…

With the first Food Revolution Day coming up on May 19, 2012 I have decided it’s time for Canadians to meet their own hero and, in our case, he’s from and living in Canada and loving it. He’s also loving eating right, exercising often and sharing his adventures and success with everyone – especially children.

So as Food Revolution Day approaching it’s no wonder BananaBoy is wiggling in his peeling, trying to get out and fulfill the need.

So come on over, share your thoughts and support the Canadian movement today!

Let’s make this powerful!

Ode to Icky by Maranda Russell

Ode to Ickyis a book I received as a review copy and read through my Kindle to my 2 year old son.

He LOVED the pictures as he’s very much into naming things right now and giggled and yelled “pee-u” throughout. Even though it was black and white he connected immediately to this story, as did I.

The story is simply but whimsical and absolutely had me wanting more. It followed Candy, a young girl who has a stinky cat and a big sister in her family. Always the entrepreneur Candy learned a trick from her big sister and decided to use Icky, the cat too lazy to bathe, as a money making opportunity.

This book was a great introduction to Ikcy and Candy but it certainly made me want to know more as I connected with Candy’s antics immediately.

When I get the printed book I’m sure my son will love it as much as I do!
