Emily eating lunch today =D
Today she had a peanut butter sandwich, with kiwi and strawberries!
I have found lunch to be the hardest meal for me to prepare, as my days have become so busy. After waking up, bringing everyone downstairs, changing 4 bums, feeding the triplets (breastfeeding and cereal), making Emily breakfast and finding time for me to eat, the last thing I am thinking of is what to make for lunch.
I have always tried to make sure Emily eats a wide variety of foods and like any parent you want your child to eat as healthy as possible.When it comes to lunch I still want to make sure to include both fruits and veggies, but I also look for quick and simple ideas.
My main goal with everything I make, is that Emily eats it and all of it! I also have to keep in mind that although I want Emily to eat as healthy as possible, in the end she is going to eat what she wants to eat. Peanut butter sandwiches are one of my go to meals for Emily, as I know she loves them and will eat it all. Adding a few fruits or veggies, such as the kiwi and strawberries, adds some extra nutrition and is a healthy choice. One thing I do want to start doing is buying whole wheat bread. Even just a simple change as that, adds extra nutrition to the meal.
It does become a challenge some days and even when I think I have prepared a meal Emily will love and eat, she decides she doesn’t want to eat it. One day she will love strawberries and then a week later she hates them and wont touch them. All I can do is prepare meals I thinks she will like and hope she eats them!
What are some of your go to meals for lunch that you have found to be quick and simple, but also healthy?
