Frances Largeman-Roth did a Q&A session with Big City Moms, we took a few of our favorite quotes to share with you!
BCM: WE'RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR TIP AND TRICKS TO EAT BETTER, HEALTHIER AND SMARTER WHETHER WE ARE EXPECTING OR NEW PARENTS--ANY ADVICE?
FLR: Just add color! Seriously, most of us are not getting enough fruits and vegetables in our diets, so we can improve our health by simply adding one or two more servings of produce each day. A sprinkle of berries over cereal and diced bell pepper in a taco are some easy examples of Eating in Color.
BCM: WHAT IS ONE ITEM YOU ALWAYS HAVE IN YOUR DIAPER BAG?
FLR: Snacks! My kids know that I always keep snacks in my purse and diaper bag—it’s essential whether you’re traveling cross country or just going to the playground. In addition to Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies and fruit snacks, I also keep a bag of almonds in a ziplock bag.
BCM: WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE VACATION AS A FAMILY?
FLR: We absolutely love Mohonk Mountain House near New Paltz, NY. Not only is it a gorgeous family resort with so many amenities (lake activities, spa, fitness center), their Kids Club (which is free!) takes kids from age 2 on up, so parents can actually have a real vacation and spend time with each other. We go with our extended family every summer and then look forward to returning all year.
