TastyBite unfrozen dinners
Tue Oct 27
Our latest food obsession is the line of shelf-stable prepared meals from TastyBite . Normally we're not fans of packaged food, which is often overprocessed, unhealthy and culinarily blah. But this company, which produces Indian and Thai dishes that often cater to special diets (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, kosher), is rocking our overscheduled, budget-conscious world. Each delicious dish is flavored with a different mixture of turmeric, clove, cardamom, cinnamon, fennel, cilantro and curry leaves. They're spicy but not hot by any adult measure; adventurous kids can handle them too. We're still making our way through all the flavors, but so far favorites include Sprouts Curry & Basmati Rice, Spinach Dal & Basmati Rice, Punjab Eggplant and Spinach Soy. The meals have a good balance of healthy fat, fiber and protein. For instance, the Vegetable Supreme & Basmati Rice meal contains 317 calories, 6g fat, 11g fiber, 11g protein and 18% RDA of iron.

Archie Comics announces an issue starring the child of one of our readers
Mon Oct 26
Not sure if you've noticed, but we've been offering some pretty great giveaways of late. Today, for example, you can enter to win tickets to Sesame Street Live: When Elmo Grows Up , the Imagination Movers in concert or a $50 Children's Place gift certificate. Back in the spring, we did what we consider to be the coolest contest so far: In conjunction with the annual Kids Comic Con , we gave the child of one lucky Time Out Kids reader a chance to appear in an Archie comic . An adorable girl named Summer won and, after months of work (the artist, Dan Parent, not only drew her likeness, Alex Simmons the writer made sure to capture her personality as well), the issue is almost here . Archie & Friends #139 Summer Spring Show will hit comic book shops on January 13, 2010. According to the press release, the plot is as follows: "Betty and Veronica babysit Summer. It soon becomes apparent that everyone's favorite comic book teens are in for a...
Baby Einstein is offering full refunds on its DVDs...but there is a caveat
Mon Oct 26
My mother insisted on plying my daughter with Baby Einstein DVDs and other products throughout her infancy, much to my chagrin. A few years later, the (obvious) news came: the company's videos were simply entertaining, not educational. Today, MommyPoppins reports via CoolMomPicks that Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood has convinced Baby Einstein to compensate parents who had bought the company's DVDs under false pretenses. So if you're dissatisfied with any Baby Einstein DVDs that you purchased between June 5, 2004 and September 4, 2009, click here for details on how you can exchange them for a different product or receive a full refund. There's one catch: The company has set a limit of four refunds or exchanges per household.
