My 11 month old keeps throwing food on the floor and her Sippy cup. My husband says she’s only 11 months but she definitely understands and I’m not sure what to do about it. It becomes really difficult if we go to a restaurant. Saying no doesn’t work and I’m nervous to suddenly end the meal because she’s small. I’m not sure what to do about this...PLEASE HELP! Do I discipline her or something f... More

School is starting up again and I need some lunch/snack ideas for my 2nd grader. She is a good eater, but super picky about easy snack foods general lunch type foods. She doesn’t like sandwiches other than pb&j and is not big on cheese. All the ideas I find online are things that should be served warm which is not an option. I need some variety for her for the days she brings her lunch to s... More
After 4 years, it’s still requested: “snack tray!” One of my favorite discoveries was using a silicone muffin tray for his at-home lunches/snacks. (Though, he makes me fill each cup with a different food, so sometimes there’s the added stress of finding 6 snacks for lunch.) Anyway, it’s novel, practical, doesn’t slide around, and keeps stuff like applesauce separated without added dishes.
Hi all, At what age did you stop giving your LOs food pouches? We use for convenience when on the go with our 14mo who is more than capable of eating all solids (we of course also provide full meals in addition)- and are wondering if pouches are any kind of detriment and we should ditch.
I’m about to return to work and our daycare has a strict policy about nuts in their info packet...but PB&J are still a house staple for my husband and I to make in batches (so we can use as backup snacks or grab-n-go lunches when we are running late). What do you do to make sure you don’t accidentally “contaminate” baby before drop off? Or, moms of kids with allergies—what can I do to hel... More
My baby girl is almost 1 and I have tried a lot of different things puréed and baby lead weaning options and she just seems to be so picky. She would like one thing and then the next time I give it to her she wants nothing to do with it. I don’t know if maybe I am making it wrong or mixing things together wrong but this child will not eat the way I would like her to, I don’t like to force her t... More
Now that both kids are in school I’ve realized how important the post-pickup car snack is! I want to keep a box of shelf stable stuff in the trunk but aside from protein bars I’m at a loss as to what kinds of foods are nutritious/filling and also won’t crumble into a big mess in the car. Need ideas!
My 10yo stepdaughter insists on having dessert every night. It isn’t right after dinner, but late at night, usually right before bed. Often we will tell her it’s time for bed and she will then say, “What about dessert??” Then her dad tells her to go ahead and have a dessert which not only delays bedtime, but she also has trouble sleeping at night and will cry every night for hours and say that ...

I’m trying to incorporate more protein and fat to my baby’s diet. Has anyone tried adding olive oil to their baby’s food as a healthy fat? Also tips for adding cheese? She’s 9 months and her second set of teeth are starting to come out. It sure if that is relevant but just something I wanted to share! 😁
