I've been planning this series for a few months, and I'm so excited to finally share it with you guys!
Feeding a family of six has definitely been a learning experience for me, and as the kids get older, it will continue to be a challenge. Transistioning Henry and Tucker to table foods was a huge game-changer for our family, and um, three teenage boys? I need to find a part-time job, like now. All of this is just to say that as our family grows and changes, our meals and my approach to the meals will be evolving as well.
I plan on covering a pretty wide array of topics, and here is what I have so far on the docket:
Feeding Babies and Toddlers
Weeknight Meals - planning, prep, and execution
Feeding Picky Eaters
Grocery Shopping and Budgeting
Getting Your Kids Involved in the Kitchen
CSA's and Farmer's Markets
If you have any other suggestions or ideas of topics that you'd like to see, please leave them in the comments! And of course any specific questions are welcome too, and I'll try and address them in the appropriate post.
Whether you are feeding a large family, just yourself, or anywhere in between, I hope this series will be helpful to you. I am certainly no expert, and I definitely don't hold myself up as the standard of perfection. I make mistakes. I'm still learning, and this is just what works for my family. Like I said, it's an ever-changing landscape and will be that way as long as these kids live under our roof.
My hope is that this will be a good resource for those of you in a similar season of your life, and that we can all learn as we go. My personal goal is to have mealtime be a relaxing and happy time for everyone involved. No battles, no stress. Just happiness and togetherness.
