My Favorite Mealtime Mom Hack

Meals with little ones can be an exercise in patience. Spilled drinks, dropped food, picky eaters: you know the drill.

My son had a big appetite for such a little guy and tends to eat all the food I have cut up for him before I even get a bite of my own food, so I end up cutting more and more of his food and mine gets cold.

Doesn’t it seem like mom always get to eat last?

I found a super simple shortcut using a kitchen tool I already had, which is perfect for quickly cutting many of the foods we eat into bite-sized pieces. Chances are you already have one as well!

      I’ve used those for green onions and herbs, but I’ve never tried it for other foods. That’s a good idea. I need to get another pair because mine went through the dishwasher and got rusty.

        When I saw her do it, with a piece of pizza, it just blew my mind at how well it worked and that I hadn’t ever thought of using them that way. My kids are old enough now to cut their own food, so I don’t have to do it.
