Tamera Mowry-Housley‘s son has inherited her gift for gab.

“Having a mother as a talk show host and a father as a news correspondent, that boy can talk,” the proud mom tells PEOPLE of Aden, 20 months.

His words of choice? “Plane”, “bubble”, “mama”, “daddy”, “go”, “ball” and plenty of “no” — though he prefers to nod instead of saying “yes.”

Mowry-Housley, 36, certainly has plenty to talk about as co-host of The Real, which will run nationally on FOX beginning Sept. 15 with a second run on BET. And she’s taking the topics she loves to dish about the most with her on her new lifestyle website, launching Friday.

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.

At only 2½-years-old, Cree Taylor is a little man of many talents.

While attending Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday, mom Tia Mowry-Hardrict told PEOPLE her son can talk circles around the actress — in Spanish!

“He’s asking for milk in Spanish, kisses and he knows full blown sentences in Spanish,” Mowry-Hardrict, 35, says. “I don’t know what the hell he’s saying, but he knows more Spanish than I do!”

Cree’s favorite word, however, doesn’t need any translating. “I’m like ‘Honey, come on, we’re gonna have to learn how to say yes!'” she jokes. “I’m like, ‘Cree, what’s your name?’ ‘No.’ ‘Cree, how old are you?’ ‘No.’ ‘Cree, can I have a kiss?’ ‘No.’ Everything is no.”

For Tia Mowry-Hardrict, it was worth the wait.

But for the record, the actress was starting to wonder — not that she was counting — but it had been two and a half years.

And then it happened. The Instant Mom star’s son, Cree Taylor, said those three little words that every mother longs to hear (and no, they were not “I want Daddy!” after a 3 a.m. nightmare).

“He just told me for the first time, ‘I love you!'” the 35-year-old told PEOPLE while attending the Los Angeles Premiere of That Awkward Moment.

“I gasped when he said it because I’m always saying, ‘I love you, Cree! I love you, Cree!’ I’m not expecting to hear anything back, and he goes, ‘I love you.’ And I was like, ‘Aww!'”

A new year meant a new ‘do for Tamera Mowry-Housley — but a mom-friendly “wash and go hairstyle” isn’t the only resolution on her list in 2014.

She and her twin sister, Instant Mom star Tia Mowry-Hardrict, have enough resolutions for all 12 months.

“I want to find a balance of family and work,” Mowry-Housley, 35, tells PEOPLE. “I think that when you find that balance it just makes things a lot easier.”

Mowry-Hardrict — mom to 2½-year-old son Cree Taylor –agrees that continuing to make family the center of her life is key this year, but then there’s also the matter of that patch of grass in her yard.

“I am working on having my own garden as we speak,” she adds.

Halloween was just another holiday for Tia Mowry-Hardict — until the birth of her son inspired her to get in the spirit.

“Now that I have a little one at home, I like to dress him up,” the actress, 35, tells PEOPLE of her 2-year-old son Cree Taylor. “Last year he didn’t have one costume, he had two!”

With plans in place to host a Halloween party featuring “cool desserts and foods that play into the theme” of the evening, the hands-on mama only has one thing left to conquer: the costumes. Fortunately, she’s not short on creative ideas.

“I’m going to be a Geisha girl, my son Cree is going to be a sushi and my husband is going to be a Samurai. My son is going to be a sushi roll. I think that’s cute!” she says.
