HUGGIES® Baby and You Blog Tour with Mom Central Canada

Mom Central Canada, Huggies & President’s Choice
I have to admit I was over the moon to be included in the Huggies Baby and You Blog tour with Mom Central Canada. I have been on the “diaper train” for the past eight year, so I do consider myself a bit of a diaper expert. One of the biggest issues I have had with diapers is the overnight leaks, with Huggies I can honestly say the Stretchy SnugFit* waistband and grip tabs for a secure fit have not let me down. The only time Baby Boy wet the bed was when he figured out how to take his diaper off and took great joy peeing all over the pillows.



Huggies and President’s Choice have teamed up to offer Moms and Babies the opportunity to come together and make some very cool & nutritious dishes.

For Mom the Chef will be making Quinoa Pancakes and for Baby Sweet and White Potato Mash will be on the menu.

Please see the attached recipe cards just in case you want to test out the recipe in advance. Every Mom who attends will also receive Huggies coupons and adorable Tiger Ears to kick off the Halloween Season.



All the fabulous event details are listed on the Loblaw Bay and You Facebook page, go on like it you know you want to!

Quinoa Pancakes

Your family will love this quinoa recipe, which is a healthy alernative to regular pancakes.

It is also a great way not to waste cooked quinoa leftovers (if you use cooked quinoa,

you need 1 cup (250ml)).

Ingredients:

½ cup (125ml) PC Organics Quinoa

½ cup (125ml) PC Organics Whole Wheat

Flour

2 tsp. (10ml) Baking Soda

2 PC Blue Menu Omega-3

Eggs – Large

1 cup (250ml) Milk

¼ cup (50ml) Melted butter

2 tbsp. (25ml) PC 100% Pure Maple Syrup

Instructions:

1. In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup (250ml) of water

to a boil. Add the quinoa. Reduce heat to low,

cover and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from Heat

and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and allow

to cool.

2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda,

cooled quinoa, eggs, milk, butter, and maple syrup;

stir together until smooth.

3. Spray a large nonstick frying pan with cooking

spray and heat it to medium-high heat. Cook the

pancakes one at a time, using ¼ cup (50ml) of

batter for each. Cook 2 minutes or until the surface

starts to bubble and the sides turn golden. Turn over

and cook two more minutes.

4. Serve with additional maple syrup or with PC

Twice the Fruit spreads.
