Everyone who's ever read a parenting book knows that it's good to offer kids choices because it makes them feel empowered and yada, yada, yada. Thanks to poor planning on my part, snack and lunch choices dwindled down to a critical level this week
Me: "Do you want... uh... these three crackers and some of this orange I was eating... or... um... hey, I think there's a banana in the bottom of the fruit bowl... maybe?"
To avoid any (more) middle-of-the-week shortages, I've created a food inventory to aid with making the weekly grocery list. This is the go-to stuff that my kids eat day in and day out. It's going to become a fixture in my household management binder. If you don't have a binder, my next choice would be to laminate it and stick it on the fridge.
Peanut Butter Crackers
Whole Grain Crackers
Graham Crackers or Animal Crackers
Whole Wheat Bread
Mini Lentil Loaves
Brown Rice With Diced Vegetables (an Annabel Karmel recipe)
Blueberry Flax Cereal Mix-In
Peach Cereal Mix-In
