Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Bitty Adventures – New Episodes, Sunday at 5:30pm ET, starting November 2nd!

Be sure to watch the all NEW episodes of Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Bitty Adventures. Season 3 is filled with fun, adventure and lots of laughs that you won’t want to miss.

I love that this series teaches social intelligence lessons and they are also “fruit forward”, emphasizing fruit, vegetables and healthy eating!  A big bonus if you happen to have picky eaters at home.

My 3-year-old loves fruits, he can eat fruits all day, but he is not a fan of certain vegetables. We started juicing and making some pretty tasty organic green juices (fruits and vegetables combined) and he actually really enjoys them! Such a great way to get him to have some extra veggies. Here’s a link to our favourite green juice recipes. I also make some delicious vegetable soups and he seems o.k. when having them in soups.  What do you do to ensure your children are eating the fruits and vegetables they need?

Peter Pan – the Disney classic feature film – premieres Saturday November 23rd at 6pm ET

Peter Pan

We are looking forward to this one! Don’t miss Peter Pan (the movie!) on Saturday November 23rd at 6pm ET.  I love watching classic films with my son and Peter Pan is such a magical movie.

We have a book with classic Disney stories and one of them is Peter Pan. I have read it many times before his bedtime and he really enjoys it.  The book also has The Jungle Book, Pinocchio, The Fox and the Hound, The Little Mermaid, Hercules and more. All must-read stories for little ones.

Do you read with your child? Any must-read stories you would like to share?

Many exciting days to look forward to this month! Stay tuned for more Disney Junior news and join the conversation by liking their Facebook page and following them on Twitter.
