Don't even ask how last weeks self feeding went. With all the good intentions, I was chasing him with a bowl and when I wasn't doing that he was trying to climb out of his highchair.
I sound like a case for Supernanny! It's not that bad (honestly.) (I don't think!)
So this week, Again, we're on kids food and I've let the bigger two choose their favorites. The Easter Hols are nearly upon us and I need to muster resolve for that. In my quest for an organised life, I'm now activity planning, so I've given the meal planning task to the big boys.
Here's their plan
Monday: Potato Cakes, Bacon and Beans
Tuesday: Macaroni Cheese and Bacon
Wednesday: Fajita Buffet Bar
Thursday: Home Made Chicken Strips and Chips
Friday: Home Made Doner Kebab (Thanks to recipe on Mortgage Free in Three)
Saturday: Oh a well earned takeaway for all!!
Sunday: The Big 3 Courser - Melon - Slow Cooked Lamb - Ice Cream Buffett!!
I'm also trying to get weight on my 12 year old so we need to plan desserts as well as main courses rather than the haphazard approach of look in the cupboard and choose! I've written a little about the food diary situation, but will be putting a lot of effort this week into planning several months of food to get some weight on the lad.
If you have an underweight child, I'd be really interested to hear from you as I feel the care given is dismissive and unhelpful. Oh I feel a rant coming on, I'll rein it in!!
There's bags more meal plans (mostly done by grown ups!) over on At Home With Mrs M - Please go and have a look. I love a good nosey!
Have a fabulous week, all of you!!
