Hey everyone! I wasn’t going to come on here today, but I had a light bulb moment. You’ll be able to tell by how off subject I am😄. But, I had an idea I wanted to share. And let me give a disclaimer. I’m doing this to filter unnecessary comments. Time is valuable, so I don’t want anybody saying something that is a waste of my or their time. You can disagree, I just don’t want any rude comments because there is a misunderstanding. This is advice for like-minded parents. For those who will find this useful. If you find this to be a bad idea, it’s fine. This is only something I find useful. I don’t stand behind it with recommendations from a pediatrician.
Okay, now! In the grocery store you will find packets like these for kids👇
Except, they mostly come in fruit or yogurt form; that I know of. I call them sugar packs. Recently, I have been introducing solids to my 6 month old. I’m an advocate for making homemade baby food, but, I need to get a food processor. I really enjoyed the baby bullet I once used for my other children, So I think I will order that. Anyway, as I looked through the baby food flavors, I realized that the flavors could be used for anybody; especially children. They come in meat, vegetables, and grain. The whole food pyramid. In a perfect world, we all would have time to sit down and eat an actual meal. But, in reality, we have allowed our lives to be so busy, that we often skip meals. The problem is that children are too busy these days, and often skip meals. Children have growing bodies and need to eat nutritious. Not just sugar, junk food, and fast food. So, instead of giving them just packets full of sugar( yogurt and fruit) why not hand them a pack of vegetables, meat, and grain? Also, you can get organic! If there is no time for you or your children to eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner, don’t skip the meal. Have your child run out the door with a couple of those packets that’s equivalent to that missed meal! Fast food is a treat, not meal. Their little bodies will thank you. I hope you find this useful, and I will share more tips in the future. Also, if picturing your child eating baby food disturb you, but also make perfect sense, you might want to stop and reflect on how you live your life. Do you really need to be that busy? Do you find your child eating a lot of fast food or chips and candy to supplement? 😩
You will be
