    Episode 40 – Cereal and Granola Taste Test!

    Breakfast, cereal, granola, oh my! There's a few places in the grocery store that can get a bit tricky to navigate -- we'd say cereal and granola would be one of those aisles that can raise confusion. Join Gina and Nicole as they discuss healthy, kid-friendly cereal and granola options while performing a live taste test with their adorable 5-year-old daughters, Paige and Shea.

    Food allergies are on the rise, and there is a chance you have a child or know a child (or three) who has a food allergy.  Today we explore the experiences of Gina's good friend Rachel, who's daughter Gracie is allergic to peanuts and eggs.  How and when was she diagnosed? What was it like having a young child in daycare?
