Haylie Duff Dishes on Her Latest and Greatest Baby Find: A Cool New Highchair

05/26/2016 at 03:15 PM ET

Haylie Duff is a mom of many talents — one of them being cooking!

The actress, who has her hit Cooking Channel show The Real Girl’s Kitchen, is particularly focused on 1-year-old daughter Ryan Ava eating healthy now in her younger years to shape her palate for the future.

“One of the things that was really important was that my daughter ate really balanced meals so she was not the teenager that would only eat chicken fingers,” Duff tells PEOPLE about the meals she whips up in the kitchen for her family. “I think that really starts young and it’s the example that’s set.”

Camila Alves Launches Premium – and Affordable! – Organic Baby Food Line for Target

05/24/2016 at 10:00 AM ET

Camila Alves knows a thing or two about the challenge of feeding children a clean, fresh and healthy diet. As a busy, hands-on mom to Levi, 7½, Vida, 6, and Livingston, 3 — her kids with husband Matthew McConaughey — Alves has spent countless nights in a messy kitchen, surrounded by bowls of made-from-scratch veggie purees.

“When I had my first child, I started to try and make fresh food for him daily and I became frustrated with the amount of work, and time, involved in making baby food at home,” Alves, 34, told PEOPLE.

Her solution? To help create a line of baby and toddler food that was unprocessed, naturally nutritious, organic — and affordable. Partnering in 2014 with Agatha Achindu — a fellow mom, established chef and entrepreneur who had a similar mission — the duo co-founded Yummy Spoonfuls.

The line, which includes flash-frozen foods designed for babies and toddlers 4 months and up, will launch at Target stores on June 12, PEOPLE can exclusively announce.

When Alison Sweeney’s kids open their lunch boxes, they never find greasy bags of chips or sugary cookies.

Instead, they’ve got good-for-you snacks like homemade trail mix and breakfast bars that The Biggest Loser host whips up in her Hollywood Hills kitchen. After years of struggling with her weight before finally getting healthy and fit, Sweeney has made following good nutrition principles a priority, not just for herself but for her husband Dave and their children, Ben, 9, and Megan, 5.

“My kids have known from the get-go that we all need to make healthy choices,” Sweeney tells PEOPLE. “They never expect to eat from the kids’ menu at a restaurant.” They don’t expect typical kid snacks at lunchtime either.

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.
