Things Moms Love: Target & Nutrition for their Babies (feat. Gerber Cereals)

If I know anything about motherhood, I know there are 2 things moms love: great nutrition for their baby & trips to TARGET. Who’s with me?
I honestly didn’t realize why Moms were so obsessed with going to Target, until one rainy Sunday night a few weeks ago. It had been a long day, cooped up inside and I needed to get out, walk around, be by myself, and just…go somewhere. So I headed to Target solo for that alone time and wandered the aisles. And guess what, after buying m&ms and a new fall candle I actually did feel better 😅 I’m convinced 99% of the people who shop at Target are Moms…and for good reason.
1.) You can find anything and everything at Target – aka one stop shopping, the only way to do it!
and
2.) You can save with digital offers on the cartwheel app – I saved over  $14 in one trip this weekend, which doesn’t sound like a ton, but anything helps when buying baby items is so expensive!
Because of these, I recently started buying most of our baby “stuff” at Target – including the Gerber cereals that we have been feeding Calvin at least once every day for the past 3 months.
*Save 10% here on Gerber Cereals at Target through the Cartwheel App*

We made a trip yesterday so I could use this offer myself and pick up more cereal & necessities before the busy week.

Why do we use and trust Gerber for Calvin’s nutrition?
First off, Calvin loves this cereal and he has since day 1, so anything that is Calvin approved, we are a big fan of! When I was breastfeeding full time, I added breast milk to the cereal for the perfect concoction. Now that I have cut back, I mix the Gerber Cereal and one scoop of formula with water, and he loves it just as much. I love that you can do either. We mix it up between the Rice Cereal, MultiGrain Cereal, and Oatmeal Cereal at dinner each day, and also along with breakfast on the weekends.
The Health Benefits of Gerber Cereals:
• Have iron to help support learning abilities
• 2 servings of Gerber Cereal a day has 90% of a baby’s daily value of Iron.
• Are made with calcium to help build healthy bones and teeth
• Delivers a nutritional blend of Zinc, Calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and six B Vitamins thanks to Gerber’s VitaBlocks for healthy growth.
• Non-GMO: not made with genetically engineered ingredients**
• No artificial colors or flavors**
**so key in my mama book!!!
This offer is good on Gerber Cereals now through 11/26. Just clip the offer digitally, pick up your cereals and save! So easy and efficient, since I know we will all be at the store shopping for Thanksgiving and eventually Black Friday this week.
Speaking of, I hope everyone has an amazing holiday with family and friends. I am thankful for every one of you!
Here’s to more trips to Target and making sure our babes get the best nutrition they possibly can. Oh, and saving $$$ while at it!

“Get Well Soon” Smoothie Goodness 

First off, you may have noticed that I have added a new menu to the blog : Health & Fitness, which has always been a passion of mine. I didn’t add this section to the blog right away because I slightly fell off the wagon and did not want to give health advice during pregnancy, as I’m still learning myself. Prior to pregnancy and starting “Kayla Marie,” I was an avid fitness nut and bootcamp teacher – more to come on this post-baby 😊

For now, the first post in this section will be a Vitamin C “Get Well Soon” smoothie recipe. 🍹 Turns out the holidays, traveling, planning for baby, have decided to catch up to us this weekend and we’ve been a bit under the weather. This has caused me to pick up an old habit, and one that was much needed…making homemade smoothies. I’m not going to lie– we definitely overdid it over the break with unhealthy eating and holiday indulgences, which is probably another reason we got sick. Note that this smoothie was made with the intention to incorporate a large amount of Vitamin C, calcium, and overall nutrition to help cure us back to health, not for post-workout, weight loss, etc, which are likely different recipes I’ll be posting in the future.

 As long as you have your fruit (frozen or fresh), some juice, and yogurt, proportions aren’t super important, as you really can’t mess this up. The ingredients above are some options, but I didn’t put everything in at once.

“Get Well Soon” Smoothie 

  • 1 cup OJ or fresh fruit juice (you can use skim milk or almond milk as a base as well)
  • 1 container vanilla Greek yogurt (you can use any flavor you’d like)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups Frozen fruit mixture
  • Blend!

Choose your fruit blend based on the type of taste you’d like. For a citrusy taste use pineapple, mangos, oranges. To off-set some of the citrus, use a berry medley. I used both! If you use all fresh fruit, add some ice to give it the cold, icy texture. Frozen fruit will do this on its own. My concoctions usually make about 2 – 16 oz. glasses. Also, I’m weird and like to eat with a spoon…Enjoy!
