Tia Mowry-Hardrict: Cree Loves Spinach, Broccoli, Quinoa and More

05/22/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

While many moms are forced to find creative ways to encourage their toddlers to eat their veggies, actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict is thrilled she doesn’t have to. In fact, son Cree, almost 3, actually requests them — to the surprise of all.

“Recently at one of our favorite restaurants in L.A., I ordered spinach for [him] and there was a mother staring us down, looking at [us] to see if he was really going to eat it!” she says with a laugh.

“But he loves it! He loves spinach, broccoli, quinoa … and he loved pureed organic carrots when he was a baby. It’s all about instilling healthy habits now, so when he gets older, he’ll continue.”

But healthy eating hasn’t always been a part of Mowry-Hardrict’s life. Shortly after tying the knot with actor husband Cory Hardrict in April 2008, the actress, 35, knew she wanted to start a family. However, after an endometriosis diagnosis that resulted in two surgeries, she wasn’t sure it could happen.

And she’s more than willing to share her recommendations with others.

“Doesn’t matter what it costs, but does it work for you, your life and your child. I went through so many things out there and this is what I realize really works.

Recently, King revealed her favorites with the cool online mommy resource and we’re sharing a few with you. Check them out below.

Noch Mini: Sophisticated, Eco-Conscious Style for Kids

04/18/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Thinking pink is not something clothing designer Jina Jang does very often. Especially when it comes to the wardrobe of her 3-year-old daughter, Ollie.

“I’m not a big pink person in general,” says Jang, who has designed for Bill Blass, Tommy Hilfiger and Ann Taylor. “When our daughter was born, I was looking for organic clothing options and the choices were very limited. And when I looked at the conventional options, it was always too blue or too pink.”

So what’s a clothing designer to do? Create your own label, of course! In 2010, Jang launched Noch Mini (pronounced Noke Mini), a children’s clothing line using only soft sustainable fabrics and certified organic materials with low-impact dyes.
