(And apparently I need to note that my kids eat pretty damn good most of the time, but their diets are not always 100% pure and healthy! So you'll see a little bit of everything in these posts, including the days that food prep just wasn't quite possible! Always keeping it real!)
A favorite new breakfast item lately has been buttered bread, toasted, spread with ricotta cheese, drizzled with honey and sea salt. Y'all. This is good. I've been making a piece for myself and then make two to three slices for the quads and just cut them up into bite sized pieces. This morning they had the ricotta toast with apples, strawberries and chocolate donut holes.
For those who have asked, the plates pictured are the Boon Saucer Edgeless Stayput Divider plates and you can purchase them on Amazon here. We love these plates and they help me portion out food, they're easy for the babies to eat from and they are a bit more difficult to tip over and dump out (but they aren't suction plates). They've held up great in the dishwasher and are sold in sets of three, we have 12 plates!
For morning snack, they usually get animal cookies or graham crackers in the play room. Today's lunch was Chick-Fil-A and the quads split a 12-count nugget meal with large fries as well as cheese and fruit.
For snack, they get their Munchkin snack catchers and whatever assortment of edibles I choose to put in there. This particular afternoon, they munched on a mix of whole grain goldfish, pretzel goldfish and a few M&Ms.
Tonight's dinner was pretty yummy. I kept things simple and made roasted some carrots (with sea salt and rosemary), steamed broccoli, lemon garlic chicken (cooked on the stovetop) along with pan fried potatoes and blackberries. The babies are always eating what we eat for dinner and typically the husband and I sit at their quad table with them and enjoy our meal together as a family.
And that's a day in meals! I'll plan to publish new posts as I'm able to snag photos of the food before it gets devoured. Let me know what you think of the new series and what some of your tyke's favorite bites are!
