An inside look at what we’re loving for parents this month.
Tropical Smoothie Café
Ahhh, springtime. At Tropical Smoothie Café, fresh fruit and veggies are the main ingredients in their flavorful smoothies. Delicious combinations allow customers to add supplements, like a multivitamin or protein. The Tiffin Avenue store sells 12 ounce kids smoothies for $2.99 each, with fun flavors. The staff is knowledgeable about food restrictions and will sanitize a blender and replace ingredients with an allergy-friendly alternative at no cost to the customer, making the Cafe a great choice for picky eaters and those with food allergies or dietary restrictions.

Burning candles may not be too practical with little hands that can be too curious or forget to blow them out. Additionally, the smoke they create may bother people with medical conditions or sensitivities. Thanks to the trend of flameless candles, you can create a warm, inviting atmosphere that’s safe and clean. Bo-Ka Flowers carries and sells battery-operated candles in a variety of styles. Pricing ranges from $30 and up, making a great gift for a variety of occasions.

Compostable coffee pod
Did you know that while parts of a Keurig-style K-Cup® coffee pod can be recycled separately, the whole pod can’t be recycled? As of 2017, 29 percent of coffee drinkers use single serve pods, which can lead to a devastating environmental impact. In 2013, Keurig Green Mountain produced 8.3 billion K-Cups — enough to circle the Earth 10.5 times— with the output shooting up to 9.8 billion portion packs the following year.
With the convenience while helping the environment love Tayst,100% compostable coffee pods.
