School is out and the kids are hungry!

This combination of events can be dreadful or delightful, depending on what you arm yourself with. Kids can be quite unpredictable when it comes to eating, no matter the age. One minute they definitely don’t want to eat, two minutes later they are starving with a side order of drama.

Two things every Mama should know…

One- you are never going to be ahead of (their) game. Those clever little minds are engineered to push every button you have.

Two- 5-minutes meals might put you back in the game.
