This past weekend, we had the wonderful opportunity to take part in a video shoot with Danielle Binns a Pediatric Nutritionist and Health Coach for parents.
Danielle needed the assistance of our youngest child – Boo – who helped to prepare some delicious green pancakes – inspired through the Green Eggs and Ham book – and some super healthy and easy to make cookies.
Danielle’s story is absolutely incredible. Reading her story on her website after having met her brought tears to my eyes. I’m not going to re-tell her story. You just need to go read it yourself. You will be emotional, then inspired, and then understand why the services that Danielle offers are so incredibly valuable.
As the parent in our family who cooks breakfast and makes lunches for our kids – one child who has become very picky with food – I found immense value in just learning 2 simple food options from Danielle which we are going to cook at home. Sorry, which Boo is going to cook at home!
Danielle is more than a mother who is incredibly passionate about providing the BEST natural and holistic solutions for other moms (and dads) and babies. She has obtained credentials/certification in the following:

Do you know what the snow rules in the city are? You should pay attention since the City of Toronto needs extra revenue and many of these infractions are clear as freshly fallen snow.
Do NOT shovel snow on to the street!
Instead, keep it on your property because it is illegal to push it on the road, and if you do, you could be handed a $360 fine, which goes up to $1,000 for repeat offenders.
What happens if you don’t shovel?
You could face a $125 fine.
Shovel the sidewalk in front of your house!
The city will clear snow from sidewalks after 8cm of snow has fallen – 5cm in January and February – but only if you live in the suburbs. If you live in downtown or central Toronto you have 12 hours after the snowfall ends to have that sidewalk cleaned off. Failing to do so could result in a fine of $125.00 as per Municipal Code Chapter 719.
What do you do if your neighbours never shovel the sidewalk?
Call 311 and complain.
Most fines are doled out after people complain to the city about their neighbour. Any subsequent complaints or follow-up investigations may result in fines being imposed for non-compliance.
Caught driving with snow on your car?
Section 74 of the Highway Traffic Act says you have to be able to see clearly out of your front, front side and rear windows and while there is an exception for rear windows if you can see with your mirrors, if it is determined that you cannot see clearly, the fine $110.
Out of the mouths of babes;
“Running shoes are very important, as are smoke detectors in houses.”
Yes they are…
