What Busy Moms Feed Their Kids – Part 2

Hi Friends!

This whole week pretty much revolves around food since it’s Thanksgiving tomorrow, right? So I thought it’d be a good time to share another roundup of what some of my favorite busy moms feed their kids!

2014 09 10 18.20.14 What Busy Moms Feed Their Kids   Part 2

Brittany
Delights and Delectables (delightsanddelectables.com)
“Baby Delight” 8 months

1. What do your children typically eat for breakfast?
Right now, he is still mainly on formula.  However, about 1 hour after his morning bottle he has some form of “big kid” food.  That is when I introduce new foods every 4 days.

2. What do they typically eat for lunch?
Formula.  We pretend it is filet mignon though.  icon wink What Busy Moms Feed Their Kids   Part 2

3. Do you all sit down as a family for dinner?
Yes!  We want to institute that early in life.  We do the best we can with him.  Dinner is usually his “witching hour” so it can get interesting.

4. What happens if they don’t like what you’re making for dinners?
We try, try again.  I am dealing with trying to decide if he has a food allergy or intolerance to certain foods, or if he just doesn’t like them.  Right now, he despises bananas.  I plan to reintroduce them in a couple of weeks.  The key is patience…. Sometimes it takes several introductions to a new food before they like it.

5. What are the kids’ favorite snacks? What are some snacks you never leave the house without?
His favorite foods right now are sweet potato and avocado.  We aren’t really doing portable snacks right now, but I always make sure to have extra formula with me!

6.  Are any foods off limits?
We aren’t doing any gluten or grains until he is older.  Our doctor told us of some new research that suggests this keeps babies from developing food allergies.  Since I have a ton of allergies, I want to keep Baby D allergy free if possible!  Plus, we aren’t sure if there are food allergies in his family history.

7. Any tips for picky eaters?
Keep trying and be patient.  Sometimes it can be a sensory or texture issue.  Someone told me it could take up to 30 times before a child accepts the food.

8. Do any of your kids have food allergies? How do you deal with that both at home and when in public?
Not yet!! Fingers crossed!!

Courtney
Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life (www.sweettoothsweetlife.com)
Lucas, 13 months

1. What do your children typically eat for breakfast?
Full fat yogurt, banana, and a pancake

2. What do they typically eat for lunch?
PB&J on whole wheat bread, homemade chicken meatballs with peas and carrots, homemade spinach mac & cheese, and deli turkey with string cheese are a few favorites these days.

3. Do you all sit down as a family for dinner?
We try really hard to all sit together, but 90% of the time, it’s usually Lucas eating while at least one of us sits with him. As hard as we try, we aren’t always able to get his food AND our food on the table at the same time.

4. What happens if they don’t like what you’re making for dinners?
We might attempt to feed it to him a different way (sometimes he won’t want to pick it up himself, but he’ll eat it with a fork, etc.) but if he’s really not into it, we’ll usually go to one of his typical lunch favorites. And some nights, all he wants is blueberries and Cheerios. It happens.

5. What are the kids’ favorite snacks? What are some snacks you never leave the house without?
Cheerios are a MUST for us right now. Fruit and veggie food pouches are also great for on-the-go snacks (although we need to watch him with them now because he likes to squirt them anywhere but in his mouth).

6. Are any foods off limits?
Not really at this point, but limit the added sugars/sweets to special occasions.

7. Any tips for picky eaters?
Sometimes, adding a little butter or cheese and extra spices to veggies has made a huge difference for Lucas.

Jess Allen
Blonde Ponytail (blondeponytail.com)
Jada, 15 months

1. What do your children typically eat for breakfast?
Fruit (usually a banana), cheerios, sometimes pancakes if I can get my act together and cook! Things she can feed herself, as she is Miss Independent now! icon wink What Busy Moms Feed Their Kids   Part 2

2. What do they typically eat for lunch?
Chicken & peas (she love these), or if we are on-the-go, a Sunbutter & jelly sandwich on whole wheat with raspberries on the side. We also do whole milk with added DHA.

3. Do you all sit down as a family for dinner?
We try to, but my husband is a baseball coach, so his hours can get late! For dinner, she loves turkey burgers and Amy’s organic veggie bowls, so I try to play into her veggie interest as much as possible.

4. What happens if they don’t like what you’re making for dinners?
I usually default to a pre-made pouch from Happy Tots or Plum. Right now, she is teething, so soft foods seem to be preferable.

5. What are the kids’ favorite snacks?
What are some snacks you never leave the house without? Again, the pre-made pouches, Cheerios or puffs, and usually a cereal bar. Plus, her water bottle!

6. Are any foods off limits?
Because Jada is only 15 months, no choking hazards like hot dogs, raw veggies, chips, candy, etc. Otherwise, I let her try sweets, not too many, but she’s a big fan of ice cream like her mama. icon wink What Busy Moms Feed Their Kids   Part 2

7. Any tips for picky eaters?
Make it fun by encouraging independence. I let her feed herself as much as she can. I also always try to sit down and eat with her, so it’s a family experience.

8. Do any of your kids have food allergies?
She had a reaction to peanut butter early on, so we stick with almond butter and Sunbutter. Usually, people are really good about asking what she can & can’t have, especially since she is so young.

Melanie Flinn
Nutritious Eats (nutritiouseats.com)
Lucas 7, Sage 5, Roman 2, and Evangeline 9 months

1. What do your children typically eat for breakfast?
They rotate between scrambled eggs and toast, cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, breakfast tacos, and bagels with cream cheese. In addition, they have yogurt every single morning- they are obsessed, and often fruit.

2. What do they typically eat for lunch?

Main entree is usually one of the following:

  • Homemade “lunchables” with cheese, crackers, and uncured, nitrate-free ham or turkey
  • Sandwiches: egg and cheese, uncured ham or turkey and cheese or peanut butter and jelly
  • Leftover pasta-either pesto, marinara or mac n’ cheese
  • Soup
  • Breakfast tacos-usually potato and egg made in the morning before school

Sides (I give them 2 or 3 sides depending on the day):

  • Hummus and crackers
  • Tortilla chips or pretzels
  • Fruit (they eat every type)
  • Nuts
  • Granola bars- both homemade and store-bought
  • Snack balls
  • Carrots sticks or cherry tomatoes

The baby is eating mostly finger food with the addition of a little pureed baby food. She eats all the soft table food we eat like avocado, pita bread, hummus, potato, chicken, pesto pasta, cheese pizza, fruits and tons of veggies—she loves them all!

3. Do you all sit down as a family for dinner?
Yes, every night. Since the baby has to go to bed the earliest we aim to eat at 5:45pm so that we can all sit together.

4. What happens if they don’t like what you’re making for dinners?
It doesn’t happen often because I usually cook things I know they like. However, if it’s something new and they don’t think they like it, I encourage (or rather make) them try at least one bite. If I am cooking something that isn’t their favorite, I always include at least one food item I know they like. For example, if I make a seafood and pasta dish with marinara, I know they don’t like seafood but they love pasta so I’d simply set aside some plain marinara. I always have frozen veggies on hand if they don’t like the fresh veggies I am cooking with and I have no problem defrosting what they like. That’s about as far as I cater to them.

5. What are the kids’ favorite snacks? What are some snacks you never leave the house without?
They love crunchy stuff like Pirate Booty, pretzels, gold fish, or Annie’s brand snacks. They also love any kind of fruit and nuts (mostly cashews and pistachios), granola bars (typically homemade Lara bars), homemade fruit or nut snack balls.

6. Are any foods off limits?
Not really. I refuse to buy highly processed foods or things with artificial dyes. However, if they are offered those sorts of things at school parties, birthday parties, soccer games, etc. they are allowed to eat them. Obviously we aim to keep those as very occasional foods.

7. Any tips for picky eaters?
If they are under 2 years old, just be patient. Food tastes change all the time. Plus, everyone has different preferences so you can’t force them to like something just because you like it. If they are 2+ years and old enough to help you in the kitchen, absolutely get them involved. This always helps my kids to be more open to trying new foods.

8. Do any of your kids have food allergies? How do you deal with that both at home and when in public?
My 2 year old has an egg allergy. It’s not very serious, but as he continues to test positive, I avoid giving him whole eggs and I often bake with flax as an egg substitute. He can tolerate eggs in baked goods in small amounts so it hasn’t been a huge issue thus far.

Pumpkin French Toast Bake

Hi Friends!

Today one of my favorite blogger friends is back with another delicious recipe for you guys! Remember when Meme from Living Well Kitchen shared this Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip back in July? It was a HUGE hit with you guys so I asked her to come back and this time she has a flavorful Fall breakfast to share! Be sure to go check out her blog for more delicious recipes!

———-

Pumpkin French Toast Casserole is a yummy, seasonal breakfast casserole that has all the deliciousness of french toast, but it’s incredibly easy to make and feeds a crowd.

If we meet on the street any time soon, you’ll probably be thinking Wow, that girl is kinda orange. I wonder why…

Pumpkin French Toast Casserole2 Pumpkin French Toast Bake

Well, it’s because I’ve been consuming pumpkin like it’s my job – my job to share healthy pumpkin recipes that are still really delicious.

People go crazy for pumpkin the second it gets even remotely cool outside Starbucks starts pumping out Pumpkin Spiced Lattes {pumping pumpkin pun intended, obviously}.

And I’ve been on a pumpkin recipe creating rampage… In fact, I did pumpkin week on my blog including Pumpkin Pie Smoothies, Pumpkin Chili, Pumpkin Cornbread, and more. But I saved my favorite recipe for this guest post.Do you realize how hard it was to keep this recipe in my folder without posting it? It was really tough.

You see, I have this condition where I am incapable of keeping trivial things a secret. {Don’t worry, I can keep a real secret if I need to}.

For example, if I buy someone a Christmas present the first of October, you can guarantee that I’ll be telling them about it by Halloween. A really delicious new recipe falls in this category as well.

Luckily, I have family and friends who “listen” as I discuss my neverending stream of recipe ideas and creations. They are the people I tell all my recipe adventures about before I post them on the blog. I’m sure they tune me out as I describe what I’ve made, what I want to try, and what failed.

Speaking of failed, the first two attempts of this recipe were quite the disasters.

When I mentioned to Lindsay that I wanted my guest post to be for a Pumpkin French Toast Casserole, I knew it’d be a good one. What I didn’t know is that my first {and second} attempt would not be.

Pumpkin French Toast Casserole3 Pumpkin French Toast Bake

I’m the first one to admit when a recipe is not blog worthy, but it pains me to throw away food. So I ate the not-perfect versions of this breakfast casserole that I knew would be a hit, if only I could get the proportions of ingredients correct. Eventually, my persistence paid off. And with each day, I’m pretty sure I turned just a little more orange.

Curious as to how many cans of pumpkin I’ve gone through in the past two weeks? Nine. I know right?! No wonder I’m looking incredibly seasonable {read: orange} icon wink Pumpkin French Toast Bake

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35-40 minutes

Ingredients (Serves 6-8)

  • 1 tsp coconut oil or butter
  • 8 oz. whole wheat bread {about 8-9 slices}, torn
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk {I used 1%}
  • 1/4 cup no sugar added applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

Spread coconut oil or butter in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Put the torn bread in an even layer in the prepared baking dish. Set aside.

Whisk together eggs, milk, applesauce, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. Pour mixture over the bread in the baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.

When ready to eat, remove casserole dish from refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake the Pumpkin French Toast Casserole in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, until cooked through {If it starts to get too brown, just cover lightly with foil and bake until done}. Serve with extra maple syrup if desired.

Lots of baby love. Little man enjoyed his third week of life. My parents came into town on Wednesday and my sister flew in Friday to meet her nephew for the first time.

bb21 Bean Bytes 116

They’re all smitten. Can you blame them? It was so nice to have the whole family together for a few days. They were so helpful around the house and I was able to get a bit of extra sleep, which is nice because I seem to still be battling whatever infection I’ve had for the past 2.5 weeks. Plus they got to soak up some time with their grandbaby.

Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 91

Hi Friends!

We got a little bit of food prep done over here last weekend. Not much, but in my opinion, anything is better than nothing!

IMG 8943 e1416525283441 Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 91

I made a batch of Quinoa Breakfast Bars for hubby to eat during the week and a batch of PB Banana Oat Muffins for me to snack on. I also prepped some veggies for snacking!

Here’s what some of you prepped last week:

Amy at Healthy Hungry Happy – 

This is all food I prepped, then froze to use throughout the next week or so. Just started doing lots of freezer meals it’s really nice and convenient!

Clockwise from the too left :
Whole wheat pancakes for my two year old (and sometimes me)
Elk meat and black bean burritos for quick lunches
Slow cooker turkey bolognese- I plan on having with spaghetti squash
Slow cooker Greek chicken breasts- I’ll prep some quinoa with this
Pulled pork- cooked in the slow cooker. I’ll thaw it when we need some for lunches or quick BBQ dinner.
Paleo pumpkin muffins- I like to freeze these then take out a couple at a time so I don’t eat the whole bag at once icon smile Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 91

Laura –

Included in the pic are:

  • Apple crisps
  • Baked Sweet Potato
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Chia Seed Pudding, one vanilla, one raspberry
  • Cucumber slices with mint and olive oil
  • Dates

Starting from the top right corner:

– Washed and dried blueberries for smoothies and breakfast this week
– Made chicken sausage, butternut squash and kale soup (from Mountain Mama Cooks) for dinner tonight and leftovers during the week!
– Hard boiled eggs (quick snacks for me and the hubby
– Washed and chopped strawberries for breakfast, snacks, or smoothies
– Baked pumpkin spice energy bars for snacks (from Mountain Mama Cooks again…she’s got some great recipes!). I’ve been making these each week and they’re a huge hit in our house. Might have to stock up on pumpkin butter before it disappears from the TJ’s shelves!
– Washed and chopped bell peppers for lunches, dinners, or a quick snack with some hummus
– Made warm lentil salad for lunches this week (from Simply Stacie)

13 One Pot Comfort Meals

This post was sponsored by Foodie. I was compensated for my time. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Hi Friends!

It’s time for another recipe roundup with my friends at Foodie. This month, I chose to pull together some recipes that fall into my favorite meal category – only one pot/pan required. Things are busy around here and when I do find time to cook, the last thing I generally want to do is make a main dish, a couple of side dishes, etc to get a complete meal. That’s why I love these recipes. My definition of one pot/pan meals are any that combine lean protein, lots of veggies and some healthy carbs in one dish! What’s better than getting a balanced meal in every bite?!

Check out the 13 recipes I rounded up from some of my favorite bloggers:
