How to Make Quality Meals For Your Toddler {As a Work at Home Mom}

I am a work at home mom, as many of you know. Unfortunately, meal time can be the trickiest. Like most of you, I work from home with my kids in tow. Although I work from home, I still need to keep them fed and happy. I wanted to share some tips on how you can make quality meals for your family. I believe that you can reduce the time you spend making meals, while still making your wee ones happy and healthy.

How to Make Quality Meals for Your Family {As a Work at Home Mom}

Plan ahead

The #1 secret to reducing mealtime is to plan ahead. Make a schedule of what you will fix that day! It is amazing how much easier life is when you plan ahead. Jotting down a few meal ideas and making sure you have everything for that meal is one of the smartest moves you can make on behalf of your family.

Get your little ones involved

This may seem like this would slow down mealtime, but I look at it as a way to spend time with my little ones. I think including them in activities can help tremendously with letting them feel like a part of the family. Even if they are a 1-2 years old, you can carry them in a carrier and let them see what you are up to. You can talk to them as you make dinner. Your kids love to hear what you have to say.

Keep things simple

Remember that simplicity wins every time. You can reduce your time making meals by making things simple. Just because you need to feed your family, it does not mean they have to be fancy meals with names that you cannot pronounce. As you work on your menu, keep the meals relatable to your family.

Include Gerber Lil’ Bits in your mealtimes

A secret weapon that we use around here for making meal time easier and quicker are Gerber Lil’ Bits. I love Lil’ Bits because our little one is really starting to dive into foods and this has made meal time easier for us. Lil’ Bits are the perfect transition food to help kids learn how to chew. You can give the Gerber Lil’ Bits straight up or you can make a fabulous meal from them. Check out the recipe that we love to make at home for our little one.

I made a Sunday Night dinner using the Autumn Vegetables & Turkey. I mixed it with mashed potatoes. To make it super easy I microwaved a red potato until soft, mixed and mashed the potato in water until it was almost liquidy, then mixed in some of the Gerber Lil’ Bits.
