Pancakes and Play Instagram Blogger
Lauren is a Texan stay-at-home mama of three. She created her Instagram page, Pancakes and Play, to provide parents with easy recipes to get their kids helping in the kitchen and simple activities they can do as a family. Her goal is to show parents fun, hands-on ways to keep their little ones entertained without the use of a screen.
Lauren and her kids enjoy cooking together, conducting science experiments, doing art projects, and visiting as many playgrounds as they can!
Exposure is everything when it comes to children and food. Over the years I have found one thing to be true, if they help cook it, they will help eat it.
Blogger & Curriculum Writer
Jessica is both mom and homeschool teacher to her young daughter. The two of them, along with Jessica’s husband, live in Florida and love baking, playing board games & all things Disney! Her favorite thing about being a parent is getting to do all the things she loved as a child again and seeing it through her child’s eye…which she thinks is twice as amazing.
Jessica loves everything about homeschooling and the homeschool community. She is the author of multiple best selling curriculum and strives to help other homeschool mothers by providing tips, tricks, insight, and inspiration.
My goal is to ignite the love of learning in all things and to help moms find a way to do that with their own children.
ED & ICU Doctor/Mommy
Debbie is an Emergency Medicine and Neurological Intensive Care Physician from San Francisco. As a 100% working mom with three young kiddos, Debbie wants her followers to know, while it’s not always perfect, she tries her best to juggle it all because she values her children having role models in all aspects of their life – especially right at home.
Debbie and her kids enjoy cooking, baking, traveling, gardening and living through experiences together! Her favorite thing about being a mommy is that every kids’ milestone and accomplishment feels a million times better than her own.
Cooking and gardening gives us all a better sense of appreciation of the hard work that goes into what we consume and what we actually put into our bodies.
Stay-at-home mom & Shop Manager for Deeply Rooted Magazine
Amarachi is a Connecticut SAHM mom of three young kiddos. She also homeschools her oldest and works as the shop manager for a Gospel-centered women’s magazine called Deeply Rooted Magazine. She and her kids love baking and cooking together, making art, doing science experiments, and going on nature walks.
One of Amarachi’s favorite things about being a parent is being able to see the world through her children’s eyes. They view everything with so much wonder and unadulterated imagination, that it’s impossible not to get excited with them when they discover something new! She believes getting kids involved with cooking & gardening can help them become more interested in trying new foods.
I tend to be pretty real about both the beauty and struggles of motherhood and hope to be a place where you can find encouragement in whatever stage of life you may be in.
Homeschool Educator/Stay at Home Momma
Lynette is a stay-at-home/homeschooling momma of SEVEN! She has a degree in education and loves to utilize that knowledge and understanding of teaching for her own kids. She and her family love to explore the Inland Northwest, read stories, host play dates, and stay involved with children’s ministry at their community church.
Lynette and all her kids have celiac disease, which makes prepping and taking food almost everywhere they go crucial to helping them avoid cross contamination of gluten in their diets. Lynette also loves home cooking & meal-prepping as a way to save money and to help her kids understand math through day to day activities. She loves encouraging other mommas through sharing tips, tricks, and DIY’s on her Instagram page.
I feel very strongly that my kids need to develop an understanding and a love for cooking so that they can not only prepare food for themselves but also enjoy blessing others in this way.
Homeschool Educator & Instagram Blogger
Shevonne is a mom of four and a homeschool educator to her two oldest children. She and her kids love being outside as much as possible, whether they’re playing outside in the mud kitchen, finding new bugs, or hiking the trails in North Carolina!
Through her Instagram page, The Homeshool Diary, Shevonne hopes to show that learning can come in all shapes and sizes. It doesn’t always have to be a formal lesson or sitting at a desk. It can be counting the amount of cups of flour your child puts in the bowl while making banana bread or adding up how many people are coming to your birthday party!
Little everyday opportunities provide the most engaging lessons. Creative play and work is when the most enjoyable learning happens.
Registered Dietitian & Fun with Food Blogger
Sari is a Registered Dietitian specializing in kids and families. As a dietitian, Sari is all about making food fun and accessible to everyone. She works in a pediatrician’s office and sees clients privately through her private nutrition practice, Fun with Food.
Sari lives in New York City with her husband, her two little ones, and their Instagram famous dog, Taco. As a family, they love going to museums, spending time along the waterfront, and cooking yummy Mexican food together!
A big part of the health education I do is about empowering the child. The more they can take responsibility for their food, the more independent they’ll become in making healthy choices.
