Quick Bites: It’s kinda like a cheat sheet that all parents need/want (especially me!)
Once my kids were old enough to eat solid foods, I was excited on so many levels but also felt completely lost: Whether it was the month-by-month “rules and regulations” of what was appropriate to give them crossed referenced with my kids’ desire to actually eat them (not to mention, I felt like if I broke the rules I would do serious detrimental, lifelong harm to some little person), the surprise introduction to a picky eater in our house (“Please tell me why you ate that yesterday but won’t you eat it now??”), or recognizing that maybe not everything in my family’s food repertoire is great for my kids (Is there ever a good time to confess that we ate a lot of mac & cheese with chopped up hot dogs in it when we were kids?), I only gained comfort by hearing from others who weren’t perfect like me.
So this round up of some of my favourite parents answering SPC’s questions about their love of food and how it has influenced how they feed their families — well, it just makes me happy in ways that only those of us who struggle with the daily work/family/holy-crap-this-is-hard-sometimes! kind of cooks truly understand. So, this one’s for all of you who try hard, know the value of a home-cooked meal, love family traditions and just want to keep doing your best. #keeponrockinbabes
