September M&M Picks!
What is it? The Nathan 5k Waist Belt is an ultra-lightweight neoprene belt (think super slim fanny pack) with a reflective belt keeper that can hold your iPhone, license, credit card and keys. The reflective belt comfortably fits around your waist – or wherever you may want to put it – and it does not slide up and down on your body. It comes in a bunch of fun different colors, and it is unisex.
Why we love it? With the kids heading back to school, we may now actually get some time to go for that much needed walk or run outside before the weather gets too cold. The Nathan 5K Waist Belt is the key to comfortable stashing all your essentials in one place, and as an added bonus, it’s comfortable to wear! You no longer have to put keys in your pockets, and have them jingling while you run or phones inside your pants getting sweaty against your skin. It is the gift to yourself that you did not realize you needed, but you will wonder how you survived without for so long! WM Tip: It is on sale for $19.99 on Amazon.
What is it? Fred’s DINNER WINNER Dinner Plate takes getting kids to finish the food on their plate to a whole new level. This plate turns mealtime into a board game, where the goal of the game is to eat each item of food along the board in order to reach the finish line where a covered “dessert” or “special treat” awaits. The board can be filled with proteins, grains, veggies, etc., and the treat at the end can be anything from an actual treat to raspberries or even a toy!
Why we love it? After a long summer of meals at Joey’s followed by ice cream, we all could use some motivation to get back into healthy eating – for ourselves and our kids. The plate is molded from BPA-free, 100% virgin melamine, and is food-safe and dishwasher safe. We all know all too well how picky some of our kids have become, and if it takes an enchanted forest plate with 3 M&Ms at the end to get them eating broccoli, it may just be worth it!
