Busybee Dinners

The second Jax could start eating solids I seriously started to stress. I am just not one of those moms who grows her own vegetables and makes organic, from scratch meals. Actually, I am not even one of those women who makes meals. While other moms are sharing recipes, I am thinking about how we can make better use of the 5-7 p.m. time we have with our kids (this week we went to the park when it was all dark outside and to the Counter for burgers).

Lucky for me, I work for and am part owner of a fresh food delivery service that has kids’ meals, Susan’s Healthy Gourmet. I kid you not and I am not just saying this because it’s my family company, I do not know what I would do without our twice weekly deliveries.

One time, and let me tell you this only happened once, I forgot to order our meals for Jax. Now like a good mother, I had bought some “back up” meals at the store just in case something like this happened. Up to this point Jax had been used to fresh fruit, bright green veggies and fresh meats. We rarely feed our kids junk food or high in sodium or sugary things. So I go to feed him this off-the-shelf dinner (I don’t want to say the brand because I don’t want to be rude BUT it was a well known brand and I am sure if you went to the baby section and saw shelf-ready meals you could figure it out) and as I open it, smell it and look at it, I say to him, “Jax I am really sorry honey.” (The peas were yellow. Ew.)

So, I deliver the meal to my child in his highchair. He looks at the food. I turn around to go back into the kitchen. I hear a “Plop. Plop. Bloop.” I turn back around and he has dumped his entire meal on the floor and then sees me and drops the plate too. Needless to say my husband and I have not since forgotten to order our Susan’s Healthy Kids meals. A usual order for us is: fresh fruit bowls, ravioli with peas and apples, turkey noodle bake with butternut squash and snow peas, meatloaf with potatoes and broccoli and pizza with celery, carrots and applesauce.
