eebee is an interesting character that enters our house and encourages us to play and educate each other. What I mean by that is that my kids teach me how easy it is to teach them. Play time is learning time and you can see lots of examples from eebee’s adventures. Keep life fun, your kids will still learn. As long as they aren’t sitting mindlessly in front of the TV. every baby company, creators of the multi-award winning eebee’s adventures TV, DVDs, toy and book series, announces the release of eebee’s Mix&Mash adventures, the first ever cooking-with-your-baby book, published by Sterling Publishing, Co., Inc.
“Playful, creative, and smart, eebee’s Mix&Mash adventures is the perfect solution for families who want to start building good nutritional habits from the very beginning,” notes Today Show nutrition expert, Joy Bauer.
Each recipe is designed to encourage playful interactions. Every opportunity you spend with your child is going to help them develop and learn. They learn language, meaning, texture, taste it’s all there every day in every meal. For example, in the “Guacamol-ee Crunch” recipe, babies help to mash/mush/moosh fresh avocado and crushed cereal together in a sealed plastic bag which naturally leads to a “discussion” about colors, textures, and sounds.
Mix&Mash also includes a DVD, co-produced with Parents TV, which features Parents TV anchor, Juli Auclair, eebee, and Kristy Glass, eebee’s play partner in the popular eebee’s adventures series, demonstrating and discussing the learning opportunities and nutritional benefits of each recipe. Activities such as these, called “eebee moments,” are also currently featured on Parents TV.
I will admit that I have the hardest time including my daughter in meal time. I just hate the mess and cleaning up. My husband has to help me relax and realize that teacher her and having her help clean up is more important than me and my clean kitchen. It’s ok if it gets dirty I can always clean it up. Seeing her smile in the end because she is so proud of what she has done makes it all worth it mess and all.
