Things I love: Safe products for kids

While I may like to poison myself with Diet Coke and Chocolate Cake, when it comes to my kids, I like to keep them as clean and as pure as I can.

Vivesana is one of the products that has helped me do just that.  It's pure from the inside out, and completely green.  And in case you didn't know, green is very in.  Catch up here.

Not only is it green and clean, but it works and I feel safe sending my kids out in the California sun knowing it won't quit in twenty minutes.

Here is a little more information regarding their product:

~ the first 70% organic baby and high performance sun care on the market.
~ the first 100% natural sun care with strong protection – the highest all-natural SPF (40 & 42) on the market, actually
~ the first sun care - as far as we can tell - to use exclusively US-grown organics and domestic, sustainable, BPA-free packaging.
~ clear application, deep moisturization, and more than a little style.

You can shop their products at www.ViveSana.com. Or read about what they're up to at their blog. And if you really like what you see, join their growing community on Facebook.

In fact, they are offering my readers a special discount...Use the code: LLM&vive25 -- at checkout to receive 25% off, until June 30th.

Another product I have found and loved is So Cozy Hair.  All formulas are paraben-free and housed in 100% recyclable packaging.  Not only do they have a wide array of hair care products, but they also have Boo! Shampoo & Conditioner which rids kids of lice the healthy way.  

Excuse me while I shudder thinking of lice.

Heres what I loved about their products.  Everything is USDA-Certified Organic and at the same time each product is packaged in a way to encourage independent eating.  Did I mention the packaging is BPA free?

Plum Organic Tots Products include the following:

TOTs Mish Mash. This fruit snack encourages self-feeding with its squeezable packaging and kid-friendly re-sealable top. Its freezable pouch makes for both a cool treat during the summer or to keep the lunchbox cool in the fall. TOTs Mish Mash is available in banana, peach, and strawberry flavors and contains no added sugar, juice or colors. Available for a suggested retail price of $1.39 for a single-serving pouch.

TOTs Fruity Fingerfuls.  This blend of freeze-dried fruit and whole grain cereal gives your tot a perfectly balanced handful-sized snack!

TOTs Fiddlesticks. These gluten-free snack sticks feature the goodness of fruits and veggies baked right in to each grab-able piece.

TOTs Fiddlesticks are available in berry, banana and apple carrot flavors.  Available for a suggested retail price of $3.49 for a box of six servings.

I've been feeding Chloe the mish mash products and I have never seen her open her mouth so quickly for the next bite.  

If you're interested in trying any of their products, you can find them at Babies R Us!

So, these are just some of the things I have found in my search for my kids purity.  Next on my list is a bible and a maybe even a chastity belt.

Kidding.  About the belt.  


  1. We love vivesana. My three year old puts it on himself and says, "mama this is yummy"
    A little bit of the stuff goes a long way. And after splashing in the water for an hour it stays on. They make a great high performance sunscreen for adults too. SPF 40, all natural, no synthetics.

  2. Hm, this mish mash stuff is interesting! I've never seen such a thing! I'm going to get some for my little dolls :)

  3. All of these things sound great! I'm especially interested in the foods you talked about. I'm always on the lookout for healthy, easy snacks for Kaylee.
