Let them... dig those toes in the sand, wriggle them in the mud, feel the warm grass beneath their bare feet! 🌞😌

👣 Playing barefoot has numerous benefits for children, including:
🔹Develops motor skills: When children play barefoot, they are able to feel the ground beneath their feet, which helps them develop better balance, coordination, and spatial awareness.
🔹Improves deep body stabilization: Or the sense of the position and movement of our body parts which depend on feedback to the brain from nerves in the soles of our feet sensing the ground.​​​​​​​​ Playing barefoot helps children develop better deep body stabilization, which can improve their overall athletic ability and reduce the risk of injury.
🔹Strengthens feet and legs: Going barefoot strengthens the muscles in the feet and legs, which can help prevent common foot problems like flat feet and plantar fasciitis. Strong feet and legs also provide a solid foundation for overall physical health and well-being.
🔹Enhances sensory development: Wearing shoes prevents any motion in these joints and leave the shoe-wearer blind to the environment. Nerves in your feet are also sensing other environmental cues like temperature and terrain. When we expose our nerves to new, different environments, the stronger and healthier they become by being forced to adapt to these subtle changes.​​​​​​​​ Barefoot play allows children to experience different textures and surfaces, which can enhance their sensory development and provide a greater understanding of the world around them.
🔹Encourages Mindfulness: Playing barefoot can also encourage mindfulness and a greater connection to the natural world. Children may become more aware of their surroundings and more focused on their play when they are not distracted by shoes and socks.
⚠️ It's important to note that there are some safety considerations when letting children play barefoot. Make sure the area is free of sharp objects, hot surfaces, and other hazards that could cause injury. ​​​​​​​

👟 Kick off your shoes and make time to *feel* with your feet! Moms and dads, you too!​​​​​​​​
Consider making your home a shoe-free zone and encourage the safe exploration of different areas without footwear, especially outdoors as the weather starts to warm! 🌞​​​​​​​​


We are excited to announce that starting May 11 we will be doing certifications and mid certification appointments in person. This is for scheduled appointments only. Please call 217-735-2317 option 4 for any questions or concerns.

In response to the ongoing formula shortage hitting the nation, my office has decided to launch a baby formula drive. We are asking parents to check their pantries for unopened, unused and unexpired baby formula to donate to the drive. We are also asking that people do not purchase new formula from stores to avoid making the situation worse for parents seeking it.

You can check out the flyer below or click on the following link to learn how you can help!


Monday, June 20th, the WIC office and the health department will be closed for the Juneteenth Holiday. We will reopen on Tuesday the 21st.


June 17th is Eat Your Vegetables Day! We know it isn’t always easy to convince our little ones to eat their greens. Sneaking spinach into smoothies, bell peppers into pasta sauce, and shredded carrots into tacos are three ways to add a few more veggies to your toddler’s meals.

What’s one way you “sneak” vegetables into your child’s food? Drop your advice in the comments! 👇

What finger foods does your baby love? 🥑🍐🥦🍌🍓Tag a friend who might want to see this!

Don’t forget: our online infant and toddler/kid courses are 20% off through Thursday night! Code: SPRING2022 at feedinglittles.com 👊

Many babies self-feed whole, soft pieces of food starting around 6 months! Oftentimes our clients skip spoon-feeding and head straight to self-feeding, a process called Baby-led Weaning/Feeding. In BLW, babies feed themselves multiple safe textures from the start and learn to chew with their strong back gums, where their teeth will eventually be. This means that they try soft finger foods plus smooth foods like hummus, yogurt and applesauce - they just feed it to themselves using their hands or loaded spoons.

Families like BLW because it allows their baby to eat what the family eats and model what they’ve watched their family members do at mealtime. It also promotes independence and sensory exploration and can be really fun for the whole family ❤️

The key? Make sure food you offer is in a shape your baby can pick up. Most 6 month olds lack the pincer grasp 👌 and cannot pick up very small pieces of food. Thus, larger strips/wedges are recommended because your baby can grip them with their little fist and bring them to their mouth to eventually chew and swallow. The pincer grasp doesn’t usually refine to closer to 10-12 months, at which time smaller pieces are great to practice with.

Cooking oils and spices/herbs are great - we just recommend going easy on the salt for new eaters as their kidneys are a little more immature. Furthermore, watch for honey - it’s not recommended until baby is 12+ months.

Need help? We bring you through the entire process in our fully online, self-paced course loved by thousands of families worldwide. In it we discuss safety, gagging vs. choking, allergens, nutrition, scheduling and everything you need in a video-based format. Head to feedinglittles.com to check it out!


Today is a day to remember those of us who never wanted to be remembered for this day. Big hugs to you, Momma’s. 💚💚

“Whatever the reason her beloved child is not in her arms, she is still a mother.”


"How often should you be feeding your toddler?" Well, if that's your question, we have a whole free child feeding guide in my bio that lays out what schedules look like to manage picky eating. ⁠

Remember, kids (toddlers included) need parents to provide the consistency of when food is served. Feeding toddlers on a routine (more flexible)/schedule (less flexible) is so so so important for teaching them to listen to their bodies, eat nutritious food, and prevent picky eating behaviors!⁠

Do any of these meals look like something that your toddler would eat? ⁠
