Four fast casual restaurants to try with kids

With little hangry kids, families want their food fast but not necessarily fast food if you know what I mean. Families looking to eat healthier also want food made with fresh, wholesome ingredients. However, fast and wholesome can sometimes be a tricky combo. This is where the 'fast casual' concepts do well with us especially when time is short. So what's the difference between fast food concepts versus fast casual places? Both types of eateries lets you order at a counter and does not have table service. However, fast casual concepts have higher quality of food and are made to order. Some that we've featured previously are Dive Coastal Cuisine, Carbone's and Modern Market. Our aim at meal time is to 'eat the rainbow' so here's four fast casual restaurants that IttyBittyFoodies love.

IttyBittyFoodies Holiday Gifts 2017

This year our IttyBittyFoodies holiday gifts list is going small and meaningful. Our kids have so much stuff which is why last year Santa regifted their own toys for Christmas in Why I'm Giving My Kids Their Old Toys For Christmas. It didn't go so well with my kids but my parent readers loved it! This year their Christmas wish list is more judicious, with just one or two items. Pinned on the Advent Calendar is a small note saying "Santa, Please be nice". I had to laugh at my 12 year old's note which stated he would like a 1000+ Lego set that he doesn't already own. Our IttyBittyFoodies Holiday Gifts list are curated with a lot of care and thought, featuring small independent businesses, experience gifts that hopefully won't overshadow the true meaning of Christmas.

What families should know about the Kusama exhibit

We have fallen for the new 'gourd-geous' Kusama exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art. "All the eternal love I have for the pumpkins" is a truly unique and magical experience. However, there's so many rules to follow in order to view it. I thought I would put a list together of all the things families should know before visiting. It would help manage expectations so that you get the most out of this fascinating avant-garde art exhibit. It's truly a spectacle to be enjoyed.
