These Eco-Friendly Lunch Boxes Make Family Meal Planning Easy

07/10/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

As moms, we often have too much on our plates. So anything that can help us be more organized, while taking less the time, is a win win for the whole family.

That’s why we were excited to try PlanetBox, an eco-friendly lunch box that claims to make packing on-the-go meals a cinch.

Perfect for camp, the beach or any outdoor adventure, the stainless steel container (which was thoughtfully designed by real parents) comes in three different sizes. And not only does it encourage portion control, but it’s great for those people (young or old!) who can’t stand the thought of their food touching.

3 Recipes from Yummy Spoonfuls Your Tot Will Love

When you’re a working mom on the go, it’s hard enough making meals for your kids every night, let alone ones that are nutritious and organic.

That’s why a lot of them — including Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley – are turning to Yummy Spoonfuls, a line of 100 percent USDA certified organic baby food.

“It’s pure, fresh and delicious!” says Mowry-Hardrict, who ordered regularly for her now 2-year-old son, Cree, when he was younger.

“I knew exactly what was in it and most importantly, my son loved it – especially the butternut squash recipe!”

The company’s mini meals, which are made without artificial additives, pesticides or other unwanted extras, are easily accessible to busy moms. You can either buy them online or in your local grocery stores.

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.

First and foremost, we’re moms.

But, for approximately three hours a day, we’re also waitresses.

It’s a shift with few perks: we never receive a tip, there’s rarely a kind word about the service or meals, and sometimes we even have to endure food being thrown at us.

So, the least we can ask for is a high chair that works well during the messy dance that is dinner.

Recently, we had the opportunity to try out the new OXO Seedling high chair ($150).

Here’s a breakdown of what works well and what doesn’t:

Hilary Duff and Son Hang at The Counter

05/02/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

With National Burger Month (yes, that’s a thing) on our mind, we couldn’t help but notice the sweet photo Hilary Duff posted on April 16 of son Luca, 2, enjoying a meal at The Counter‘s Century City, Calif. location.

The celebrity hotspot – fellow star moms Nicole Richie and Tori Spelling are also fans – boasts the most impressive burger menu we’ve seen thus far. And the catchy names don’t hurt either (Old School, Un-Brie-lievable, anyone?). You can even have your burger in a bowl. Hard to imagine, but after reading the ingredients, it sounds absolutely yummy.

Not a meat eater? There are several green options, including the quinoa-based Hippie Salad, that will surely whet your appetite. Our mouths are watering just reading everything they have to offer. No, really.
