From Pumpkin Pancakes, Pumpkin French Toast, Pumpkin Porridge, or pumpkin cookies, Your kids should have plenty of opportunity to get alpha carotene from their food.  Alpha carotene is considered a pro-vitamin, which your body uses to convert into Vitamin A.  Vitamin A can strengthen your kids immune system, improve vision, has anti inflammatory properties, and reduce the risk of developing cataracts!  What a healthy way to start the winter!

Yum! I have made pumpkin shakes like this but I never thought to put brown sugar in them. I’ll have to try this.

I made your white chili again this week. So good! It is now my daughter’s favorite meal.

I have all the ingredients right now! Speaking of shakes and smoothies, do you have any tips on packing them in a school lunch – what kind of container would work best?

Is it for an older child who could handle drinking out of a glass container? How about a mason jar? Depending on your blender, you can even blend the smoothie right in the mason jar. (Regular-mouth jars are compatible with many blender blades/bases.)

Hi Darlene,
That’s a tough one. We’ve had so many spills over the years, and backpacks soaked! I was hoping a reader would pipe in, but no such luck 🙁 If I can find out, I’ll let you know!

I have found that these old standby’s are the best for smoothies in lunches. It is a shame that they aren’t bigger but we have taken ours in these for the kids and never had a leak (as long as the kids remember to put the straw down). :)http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=lunch+juice+container&um=1&hl=en&tbm=isch&tbnid=C5m81FGP4aMGYM:&imgrefurl=http://fundamentalsandfripperies.blogspot.com/2011/09/lunch-box-reviews.html&docid=8xyKTQvvSQM6vM&w=403&h=302&ei=7m6DTs2NKqbD0AHyjaGSAQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=972&vpy=126&dur=23&hovh=194&hovw=259&tx=280&ty=82&page=1&tbnh=118&tbnw=139&start=0&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:23,s:0&biw=1366&bih=587

There are spill-proof mugs that you can buy at Costco. They are meant for coffee, but could work for any drink. You can literally throw them in a bag and nothing leaks. They keep drinks hot for 4 hours or cold for 12 hours. They are made by Contigo. They’re metal, come in different colours and have screw on lids that have an autoseal button that you press so that the drink will come out. We can even get them here in Canada. Best invention ever!!!
