HUGGIES® Baby and You events at Loblaws (giveaway)

Rowan has started solids now and she enjoys food far more than her sister did at this age so I’m doing my best to come up with healthy and tasty recipes for her in the hopes that she will be a less picky eater.  I’m at our local Loblaws at least once a week as it is, so I was very interested to learn that there are *free* HUGGIES® Baby and You in-store events happening right now across the country!

Between October 18th and November 2nd, each event will highlight a dish for Mom (Quinoa Pancakes ) and a dish for the babies (Sweet and White Potato Mash; see the end of the post for this recipe – I think both of my girls will love it). 

Moms are encouraged to bring their babies to the events and will leave not only with 2 great new recipes, but  also HUGGIES® coupons and  a pair of adorable tiger ears, just in time for Halloween.  I’m guessing that some of the coupons will be for HUGGIES® Slip Ons, their new diaper that you can just pull on your squirmy, on-the-move baby.  I haven’t tried them myself but since there is a class at my Loblaws this Saturday I may pick up a package and give them a whirl.

To find an in-store event near you, check out the Baby and You Facebook page (click on the PC Cooking Class link on the left).
