Mealtime Moments with my Babies!
This post is sponsored by Ingenuity™ but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
I’m trying my best to balance being a wife, mom, pharmacist, and content creator. If I said it were a cake walk, I would be lying. I feel like there is always SOMETHING to do, whether it’s meeting a deadline, doing laundry, or picking up the thousands of toys that are taking over our house. Haha. The list is never ending. The one time that I actually am forced to slow down and escape from all the craziness is mealtime with my baby girls. We try to make it a daily habit to sit down as a family to eat, and you know what? Everyone has a seat the table, even baby Liv. We have been LOVING the Ingenuity™ SmartServe™ 4-in-1 High Chair. It slides right up to the table and she fits right in!
Mealtime with my girls is one of favorite times of the day! I love the sweet memories that we create while eating. Although I’m still exclusively nursing baby Liv, we have started introducing solids to her diets. It’s pretty adorable to watch Liv feed herself. I thoroughly enjoy prepping meals for both her and Maddy. Meal prepping forces me to focus on providing the girls with healthy options, because Lord knows McDonald’s is a tempting, convenient option with our lifestyle. Haha.
I want to share with you 5 easy meal/snack options for both toddlers and babies that we keep on heavy rotation.
1. Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal
2. Protein: Eggs, Sliced Chicken Breast, Ham
3. Veggies - Smashed Avocado, Pureed Spinach
4. Fruits – Bananas, Apple Sauce, Oranges
5. Starch - Mashed Potatoes or Mac ‘n Cheese
Once meals are prepared and it’s time to eat, I have to say, Ingenuity™ SmartServe™ 4-in-1 Baby High Chair is heaven sent. It’s washable, adjustable, and portable! Messy moments are now manageable. It’s a game changer to be able to eat without having to hold Olivia because she’s safe and secured in a seat of her own.
If you’re on the market for a high chair, Ingenuity ™ has the perfect one. I love that it’s easy to clean and also that it’s not super high, so you can push it up to the dining room table and baby fits right in! Target has a huge sale going on on Ingenuity ™ products where you can save up to 15% off until February 16. How amazing is that?
Let me just say, these mealtime with my family are moments I live for. It’s the one time during my super hectic day where we try our best to unplug and be present. The last thing we want to do is look back 10 years from now and realize that we missed out on the most precious moments with our baby girls. So, I’m challenging you to put effort into meal prepping and being present at meal time!
