Our focus is on introducing parents and children to everyday ways to improve physical and mental well-being with simple meal and snack recipes (like homemade yogurt and baby food), hand-crafted toys, home design ideas and more. Living Green with Baby combines practical how-tos with entertainment and real life–with all of its limitations on time, money and energy–and encourages healthy choices, curiosity and creativity in parents as well as little ones, all presented under the blue skies and lush greenery of a tropical paradise.
