|My 3.5 DD still doesn't eat a lot so I try to offer her nutrient rich foods. When I'm too busy, there's alway things like cold garbanzo beans and grape tomatoes, which also has more nutrients than boxed mac and cheese.
I have no idea if my kids would touch cold garbanzo beans, as neither of them seem to care for bean (except canned kidney beans, for whatever reason) all that much. I've tried introducing beans quite a few times. They love
grape tomatoes...but ds2 could eat a whole package and still be hungry. That doesn't tend to happen with something like EZ Mac. Sometimes, getting the child full
counts for a lot.
OP: Do you know for sure that they have no money problems? People don't always talk about it...even with close friends.
