Event Review: California Baby Family Festival
Also on the tour, VIPs got to mix essential oils to create their very own aromatherapy blend and lotion.
One of the many yummy treats being served were ice cream sandwiches made with Coconut Bliss organic ice cream.
Let's Be Frank grilled up some delicious grass-fed beef, turkey, and veggie hot dogs (all nitrate, nitrite, and hormone free). I'm not a big hot dog fan, but these were so good I had seconds.
Chef Gino, host of KitchenDaily’s Kitchen Kids, taught guests how to make tortellini at his booth with ingredients provided by Whole Foods.
Mother Cluck brought along some feathered friends that guests enjoyed interacting with.
Ladybug Music got the party started with some groovy tunes and interactive play.
At the Garden School Foundation, California Baby's partner in charity, kids were able to pot their own broccoli and lettuce seedlings to take home with them.
Bash Eco Events, a "sustainably minded, boutique, event coordination studio," provided dried gourds and pumpkins for decorating with jewels, ribbons, and more.
The creativity continued to flow at the Kimmel Kids booth where stencils and vibrant colors were the tools for imaginative masterpieces. Kimmel Kids products are available at select retailers. See website for locations.
All in all the California Baby Family Festival was a delightful and enriching experience for all in attendance. I look forward to many more!

What's for Dinner, Mom?
One response that always yields cheers from all three of my children is, "Spaghetti!" And as Fall approaches, it's one of my favorite things to make because it's quick and easy to prepare after a long day, but it's still warm, nutritious and so satisfying. I love adding different types of squash and onions to my sauce to get the maximum nutrition out of my meal which is one reason I'm really excited to try Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce when it hits stores (soon!). We already love Ragu at our house but I love that new Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce contains two servings of vegetables in every half cup and is will have a new, naturally thicker recipe.
Ragu is giving their Facebook Fans a sneak preview of their newest variety of sauces:
"To be one of the first to taste Ragú® with 2 servings of veggies in every half-cup visit them on facebook.com/ragusauce for more details."
Disclosure: I was entered for a chance to win a Ragú® prize package in exchange for this post. No monetary exchange took place.
