Our Go-To Snacks & Meals

For today’s motherhood topic, there was a HUGE interest in what our kids eat on a daily basis including snacks, breakfast, lunch & dinner! We try to eat as healthy as we can but of course, as I mentioned before – we do not follow any type of “diet” or certain meal plan. A few rules we have implemented into meal time include the following:

The kids always eat what we eat – if they decide they don’t want it then it gets wrapped up and goes in the fridge for when they decide they are hungry. They do not get a different meal.

No snacks after 230 pm to ensure that they are hungry when dinner is served at 5. Right now that is our dinner time but I do know it will change as they grow older!

We try to shop the perimeter of the grocery store rather than the middle when possible. 

If they eat well all day, they get a before bed snack, sometimes it’s s “treat” and sometimes it’s a piece of fruit. I tend to alternate the two! Usually mentioning the before bed snack gets them to eat most of their meals or at least “try” everything on their plate!

GO TO SNACKS

Apple, banana or celery with peanut butter

Nuts with raisins (for the bigger kids)

We also do an app dinner night every once in a While, i make a Veggie tray, put out some hUmmUs and my husband will make his famous chicken wings. We spread it out on the island and just pick.
