Harris is about to turn one, Grant is three, and we all need to eat food, so I’ve started this blog back up as a reminder to myself of what works for us.
I forgot to take a picture of my plate, #momoftwo, but we had an easy meal of steam-in-the-bag couscous with spinach, frozen soy chikn nuggets, and cheese and crackers at the request of Grant. I think Grant has gotten pickier over time, but we try not to apply pressure to keep mealtimes as stress-free as possible. We also don’t tie dessert to how much he eats, he already has dessert on a tall enough pedestal! Some nights we have dessert, some we don’t. Sometimes it’s served with the meal, sometimes after. When he asks and we tell him it’s not a dessert night he doesn’t get upset… at least not yet! I keep the freezer stocked with a few staples for nights when I’m busy or just don’t have the brain capacity to do anything more complicated.
The adults had a lovely dinner of soy nuggets dipped in tzatziki, couscous with spinach, and cheese and crackers.
