School's Out! Top 10 Series.  I'm sharing my Top 10 Ways to Cook with Books during Summer with your Kids.  Would love for you to join along and share any ideas you have for cooking with your kids that are book inspired.  http://bit.ly/cookwithbooks.  Includes tons of fun book selections and proven recipes with my cooking class.

Om~gosh! I had to join this group because learning in the kitchen is way too much fun to pass up!

@Candace, I forgot to tell you that the India Tree website has a retail locator page so hopefully you can find a retailer close to you if it's what you decide to use for blue popsicles.

@Candace  Here is the article I was sent about dyes.  The author said that she uses India Tree Natural Decorating Colors.  Another natural food blogger told me she buys some natural food dyes at Whole Foods and said they are brilliantly colored, especially the blue.  But she couldn't remember the name.

We had a guest poster making Hummus with her 19 month old!  


Helpful, healthy....love it!

Blueberries would be more purple.  I can't think of anything that would be naturally blue for dye.  I'll ask around.
Comment by Candace @NaturallyEducational on March 24, 2011 at 2:42pm
@Erin - that would make violet, no?  I think most traditional blue dyes & pigments aren't from foods...like indigo, lapis lazuli, etc.

What about blueberries?

We made kiwi smoothie pops for St. Patrick's Day.  I'd like to make a rainbow pop with my kids...question: what would naturally turn food blue?  Can't think of anything!  We may just end our rainbows at purple!

I wanted to add this link because I feel it's a good cause.  One of my FB friends, Tiffany, has a son with ADHD.  He was in my preschool class when I taught a few years back.  He had to start taking ADHD medicine recently, and although Tiff is an advocate for healthy eating, her meals were low cal, so Jett struggled with significant weight loss.  She had to learn to cook healthy but in a way to increase weight gain for her son.  She started a blog with recipes to share.  If you have a child ADHD or know of a mom with a similar struggle, please pass this blog along.Eating 4 ADHD Healthy Weight Gain
