I am an official brand ambassador for Mini Babybel® in 2016. While I receive compensation for participation as a brand advocate, opinions are my own.

I’ve always been very upfront about the fact that I am not a parenting expert. That might even be the first line of my upcoming book (on shelves in Fall 2016!!!). So, in partnership with Mini Babybel, I put together a panel that could help advise me on some of my most recent parenting questions.

I thought long and hard about who should be on such a panel and eventually I landed on a few people I know quite well— Mazzy and her friends. That’s right six-year-olds. After all, who knows more about kids than kids?


We filmed three videos, each addressing a different parenting topic. I gleaned all the info I could, and believe me— there was real information espoused!

Here’s what a bunch of six-year-old’s had to say about doling out chores.

I don’t know about you, but I actually learned something!

Just like Mazzy and her friends had big ideas for such little people, Mini Babybel packs a big taste in a small package.

Mini Babybel is a 100% natural cheese which comes in seven different flavors— from classic Original to smooth Mozzarella style. Its rich, creamy taste coupled with its signature red-wax-packaging has made it a favorite choice for both Mazzy and Harlow (and me!), who love unwrapping them just as much as they love eating them.


I also love Mini Babybel because it’s an easy on-the-go snack that’s packs more nutrition than our standard snack of a bag of pretzels or goldfish. Each serving delivers at least 4 grams of protein and 15% of your daily calcium needs – all for 70 calories or less. That and it fits easily into any lunchbox.
