Yesterday was my son Kai's (3rd birthday). We had a superhero joint birthday party for Kai and Leo and the kids had such a blast! Obviously Philosophie superfoods were ever present at the party...we had superfood smoothies, cacao magic (healthy, kid friendly) cupcakes, and a green dream banana smash cake for our big 1 year old!!
