Happy July! Today, we’re announcing a new post series on Hellobee – this month, we will be sharing some of our favorite tips, tricks, and recipes for feeding our families.

As busy moms we struggle at times to find ways to feed our families with everything else on our metaphorical plates. Add in picky eaters, dietary restrictions, budgets, extracurricular activities, summer heat, etc., and it can sometimes feel, well, impossible. Unfortunately there is no magic fairy putting a healthy dinner that kids will actually eat on our tables 7 nights a week. But we want to help make it a little easier for you to feed your family by sharing what actually works for us and also crowd sourcing ideas from the rest of the Hellobee community.


These posts won’t be laundry lists of beautiful (but perhaps unrealistic) ideas for Pinterest-worthy meals. Instead there will be practical and hopefully approachable posts sharing things like: our go-to recipes for summer dinners; a list of our favorite grocery staples at Trader Joe’s and how we turn them into quick meals and snacks; how we pack school lunches; a list of healthy snack ideas; unbiased (and unsponsored) reviews of meal kit services; how we menu plan and grocery shop; and our favorite food bloggers and a short list of their recipes we make often.

We will still be posting regular content this month but will also be posting several feeding our families posts each week. Please join the conversations on the blog or in the discussion boards. Hopefully by the end of this month we’ll have collectively created a resource bank of ideas for any busy mom trying to figure out what in the world to feed her family that they’ll actually eat and may be quasi-healthy too!

P.S. If there is anything specific that would be helpful to you for us to write about, please let us know. This community exists for our readers, and we want to do better about publishing content that is useful and interesting for all of you. If you have ideas for other monthly series (i.e., favorite toys, education, kid activities, parenting older kids, etc.), please share those with us as well.
