Okay, imaginary friends.Â I need some help.
Bean eats terribly.Â And since Bean is 18-months-old and can’t fix himself his own meals, what that really means is that I feed my son terribly.Â When he was little, I spent all this time preparing homemade baby food for him.Â It was steamed veggies and fresh fruit.Â I even cut out the juice.Â I was so healthy conscious.
And then I went back to work.
And then I became pregnant.
Those aren’t excuses.Â They’re just facts of life.Â I’m not home all day to prepare and store food for him and by the time I get home in the evenings, I’m beat.Â Now, mealtime is all about speed.Â I’m tired and the last thing I want to do is prepare some big, lavish, healthy meal that Bean won’t even eat anyway.Â For the most part, I can manage a healthy, well-balanced MEALS, but what I’m having trouble with are snacks.Â It’s so convenient to grab a bag of pretzels or goldfish, but I feel like that’s such a cop out.Â Surely there are quicker, healthier snacks for him to eat out there.Â I just haven’t thought of any.
So, I’m asking you all.Â What in the world are you feeding your toddlers that is healthy and quick and portable.Â We’re on the go a lot and most of Bean’s snacks are in route somewhere.Â Any suggestions would be more than welcome!Â Help a motha’ out!
