Healthy Ingredients a Mom Can Trust

April 4, 2016

Whole Foods Market Marin

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Whole Foods Market.

Aspartame? Vanillin? Ammonium chloride? Shopping for groceries shouldn’t feel like reading a chemistry textbook. And once children enter the picture, the stakes are even higher.

At Whole Foods Market, we stock our shelves with products we buy for our own kids. We carry the widest selection of organic foods of any retailer, but it doesn’t stop there. What goes on your little one’s body is just as important as what goes in it. Looking for diapers? Ours don’t contain synthetic fragrances, inks, or chlorine. We offer lotions, soaps, sunscreen, and baby powder that don’t contain irritating preservatives, artificial colors, or scents.

Understanding Dyslexia - 2 Free Local Events on March 5th

February 22, 2016

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from North Bridge Academy which offers a premium education for dyslexic elementary aged students in Larkspur. To learn more, visit the school online at www.northbridgeacademy.org

People with dyslexia flip letters when they read. Wrong! Separating myth from fact is one of the first steps parents must do once they learn their child is dyslexic. Learning enough about dyslexia to effectively advocate for your child is critical to obtaining proper educational support and understanding how to set your child up for future success. Dyslexics can be as successful as anyone else. Fact.

Learn about what dyslexia is, how common it is, what neurological research shows about the how dyslexic brains function, how best to educate your child, and how to support their intellectual growth.

In Larkspur on March 5th, there will be two free events that will give you a wealth of information in one day:

Learn to Bike! This Summer in Mill Valley.

February 19, 2016

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Avid4 Adventure which offers summer camps for kids K-12th grades in Mill Valley, Oakland, Palo Alto and Saratoga. Learn more at avid4.com.

At Avid4 Adventure, we think it's never too early to introduce kids to the joys of being active outdoors. That's why our Learn to Bike! day camp helps kids age 3.5 and up embrace the fun of self-sufficient cycling.

Designed for first-time riders (or kids using training wheels or balance bikes), our half-day camp groups kids by ability and leads them through a progression of skills—walking their bikes, scooting downhill, coasting with their feet up, touching the pedals and finally pedaling—giving them the skills they need to get comfortable on two wheels. We also make time for games, art and yoga, offering campers opportunities for fun and confidence building both off and on their bikes.
