Lonelle Selbo - Healthy Moms Blog

Lonelle spent the past 15 years hanging out on the masthead of some cool fashion and lifestyle magazines across Canada—before taking the leap into parenthood, at which point swaggy parties and fashion shows lost their lustre next to her sweet son. Immersing herself into a new scene for a stint as the Editor-in-Chief of UrbanMommies before moving on to launch her own country living + parenting magazine 'Life Au Lait', she loves putting her ear to the ground and listening to the rumble of mom voices. In between Oprah and bonbons, she also runs a boutique design and branding agency (AuLait Media) working with small (often mom-driven) businesses to help realize their vision as a beautiful brand.

Hooray for Healthy Yummy Food That My Toddler Will Eat

Last night was a hallmark night. My somewhere-between-two-and-a-half-and-three-year-old man-in-training ate four (count ‘em, four) helpings of his dinner. During this time, he prompted me several times with “Mama, more pweeez!” and then dived in, occasionally making eye contact to nod emphatically and declare “Yummy!” with an earnestness that was a little bit heartbreaking.
