Day 2: A babysitter, hooray!


The meal:
Baked Oatmeal again; fresh pineapple chunks; greek yogurt (raspberry flavor)

What they ate:
Little A ate everything.
Big R ate all of his pineapple and yogurt, and about 3/4 of his oatmeal.

My notes: 
Another good start to the day! Little A's oatmeal serving was about 2"x3" and Big R's was about 3"x4".   Big R got about 3/4 cup of pineapple chunks and Little A had 1/2 cup.  I love that they love their fresh fruit!


The meal:  Different meals for each kid, as Big R stayed at school for lunch today, and Little A and I went to a moms' meetup at the mall for storytime and lunch at the food court.

In Big R's lunch, I sent a half sandwich of turkey with raspberry jam (a favorite of his), a clementine, celery sticks with a tablespoon of ranch for dipping, two Hershey's kisses, and a Fruitables juice box.

Little A got a Chik-fil-A kids' meal of 4 chicken nuggets (Chik-fil-A nuggets are bitty little things, about 1" square each), fresh fruit cup, and milk.

What they ate:   
Big R ate all of the sandwich, the clementine, the candy and drank the juice box.  He didn't touch the celery and claims he ran out of time to eat it.

Little A ate all 4 nuggets, all of the fresh fruit, about half of a single waffle fry, and water from his sippy cup.  We brought the milk home for later.

My notes: Chik-fil-A does a decent job on their kids' meals.  The portions are reasonable and I love that you can sub fresh fruit for fries at no additional cost.  The fresh fruit looks and tastes fresh- his cup today had grapes, strawberries, apples, and mandarin oranges (oh, wait- guess the oranges must come from a can). As far as fast food goes, it's not a bad pick in my opinion.


The meal: Spaghetti and meatballs, steamed broccoli, applesauce, milk.

What they ate:   
Big R ate all of the celery sticks from lunchtime, two meatballs, several forkfuls with spaghetti with sauce, all of the applesauce, his milk, and a few bites of broccoli.

Little A ate one meatball, about 1/2 cup of chopped-up spaghetti with sauce, no broccoli, a few bites of applesauce, and he drank a little milk.

My notes: We actually had a babysitter tonight, so Mr. H and I got to go out to dinner!  Woohoo!  Big R requested the spaghetti and meatballs for dinner for himself and his brother.  Spaghetti is usually a sure-fire hit for dinner, but the sitter arrived while the boys were eating and I think they got excited and distracted.  Neither of them ate much after she got here.

Snacks:  At school, Big R had pretzels and juice.  At home, both boys had pretzel sticks and a small handful of mini M'n'Ms (about 10) each.

Thoughts on the day:   Not bad.  Plenty of fruit as usual.  Waiting for the day when Little A deigns to eat broccoli.
