Feed Your Fam!
Caldwell Pediatrics strives to be a resource for our patient families. We've recently updated our website to help families get inspired with food ideas and motivated to eat healthy at home. Clicking the "Feed Your Fam" button at the top of any page on our website will take you to breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Each week, a different link will be attached to each option, hopefully inspiring you to try something new in your home! #food #heath #eat #eal #family #cook #

Summer Foods for Super Hungry Kids
Summer has been in full swing for a bit now and it's amazing how quickly the pantry and refrigerator empties when the kids are home more. It seems like the grocery bill gets bigger even if the kids are off at camp or Grandma's for a week. Here are a few healthy and realistic ways to keep up with the fuel needs of those constantly running bodies. Stop buying drinks. Yeah...I said it! Your tap water is yucky? Mine too.
