Why MACT Awards Is The Most Trustworthy Award You Should Look For On Your Child’s Products

By |April 18, 2011 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Announcements, MACT Award Winners, Videos|

OK, so we are just going to be straight up here.  Over the years we have been disturbed and let down, over and over again, with the kinds of toxic products that get awarded by Award Programs for kid’s products.  I mean really, does a plastic junk toy that ends up in our landfills within only a one-child life span really worthy of praise?  I mean, would you award your child for standing on the edge of your neighbor’s pool and peeing into it?  No, probably not.  (You get my drift?) We wanted to bring about a completely new train of thought, a whole new consciousness about, when it comes to raving about what is truly honorable.  AND, we wanted to do it in a colorful and enlightening way so that the reviews that are out there do the trustworthy products justice.  In other words, you will not find an award program that is really offering parents what they deserve, and hopefully crave, to know…. UNTIL NOW.  We are really excited to officially introduce to you, Mom Approved Child Tested, the prestigious MACT Awards. […]

A Healthy And Convenient Snack for Babies And Kids

By |April 5, 2011 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, Food & Supplements, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

What we parents ultimately desire for when we purchase packaged baby food is a chemical-free, hormone free, hormone disruptor-free, wholesome, nutritious snack to conveniently offer our babies. All that, and of course we want our babies to eat the food too. HappyBaby™ Happy Munchies have proven to fill all of those requirements and then some, making these organic snacks the newest winner of the MACT Excellence Award! One of our mama tester’s comments make us chuckle because of the truth she speaks, “My three-year old is vegetarian, and a picky eater. The Smart Puffs say they are for one year olds, but my three-year old girl loves them: they’re just like Cheetos, only devoid of the horrible additives and preservatives found in conventional brands. But, what’s really exciting is that not only are they devoid of unnatural substances, they are full of good stuff, including the mineral choline, which helps brain development. They are made with broccoli, kale and carrots, among many vitamins and minerals, making them a very smart choice for my little girl who would not eat whole broccoli for a new pony.” Each child is unique. Each child has their own personality and their own way of doing things. Including eating! Sandra’s children (MACT co-founder mama) are a great example of this. Her first child eats whole foods like no other child I have seen. At a very young age I recall her eating a plate of salad and other greens! This is something my 4 year old still won’t take one bite of, and I consider myself an incredibly healthy eater and keep only healthy foods in the house. Sandra’s second child however won’t eat vegetables, won’t even try them. Sandra comments that her son prefers to eat things that come out of a package. Do any of you parents out there relate? […]

Rockin Green Soap For Your Cleanest Cloth Diapers

By |March 8, 2011 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Household, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

You may have heard of Rockin’™ Green, “one of the only clean-rinsing detergents that is specifically formulated for cloth diapers, but rocks the wash with all your family’s clothing.”  All 3 of our mama testers that put this product to the test had said, “I have heard of this product and have been wanting to try it.”  Each and every one of them also fell in love with the product and the mamas mentioned they were so stoked they will now make the switch to this detergent permanently! Rockin Green Cloth Diaper & Laundry Detergent was loved by moms because it stripped the nasty smell out cloth diapers that they thought were doomed to stink forever.  The reviews from these mamas truly are something else, and they said they were happy to rave to all of their friends about it too.  (How often do you rave about a laundry soap to your friends?  This stuff must Rock, we thought!) One testing mama offers, “My first thought of this detergent was ‘powder, I’m not so sure’, but the more I used it I noticed that its so much different than any other laundry soap out there. It rinses so well and my diapers have never smelt more fresh and looked so clean. Not only does this soap work wonders on diapers but it can also be used on regular laundry which is wonderful for my household. We don’t have time to keep track of two different soaps for laundry so this made things more easier for us.” […]

Bumboosa Bamboo Baby Wipes Stir Up Quite A Buzz

By |March 3, 2011 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, Diapering, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

There was an incredible amount of buzz coming in to the MACT Awards program from mom’s who have tried Bumboosa Bamboo Baby Wipes.  No wonder our testing panel of  mamas loved these safe alternative baby wipes too!  Not only are they non-toxic and free of harmful ingredients that hide in other baby wipes, but these wipes are made from a renewable resource (bamboo, not cotton/pulp/plastic) and they smell amazing!  This lead to their MACT Excellence Award win! Bumboosa improves on the conventional baby wipes because these wipes are free of:  hormone disrupting parabens, artificial fragrances, and chlorine.  One mama shared her concerns when she learned that her current wipes were filled with nasty chemicals, “The really startling information I learned is that most wipes contain parabens, which are hormone disrupting as they mimic estrogen; the last thing I want for my baby boy is to put a hormone disruptor on his sensitive skin. Baby’s skin is very permeable, meaning when you put something on their skin it enters their bloodstream; so it’s very important what we put on our babies. Bumboosa wipes contains no harsh chemicals, parabens or mineral oils.” […]

Plum™ Organics JUST Fruits improves on the conventional baby food readily available in big box stores by bringing organic, quality fruit, packaged in BPA-free containers. These JUST Fruits pouches were loved by babies 6 months – 2 years old.
