Kiwi Magazine

Definitely my #1 magazine and the one I recommend to all new parents. It’s chalk full of great advice, new research and healthy recipes. Every time I read it I walk away having learned something new. I love that!

Pathways to Family Wellness

I first ran across this magazine at my chiropractor’s office. The articles are thoughtful and focused on wellness, just like the title implies.

Family Fun

Lighthearted and creative, Family Fun brings a smile to my face every time it arrives in my mail box. Some of our favorite craft ideas have come straight from Family Fun and I always get amazing holiday inspiration from its’ pages.

Natural Mother Magazine

Natural Mother is the new kid on the block, an e-magazine that debuts in June. The Facebook page has become a fabulous community of parents striving for a more natural lifestyle and I’m sure the magazine will echo that same calling. Stay tuned!

Real Simple

Technically not a parenting magazine, but a wonderful home economist resource just the same. I love the gift ideas section and the tips and tricks Q&A is always a real eye opener!
