UltimateMama has a simple yet effective tip for you that will make your life a lot easier if your trip gets delayed or if you are planning to arrive back home late at night.  Buy organic milk before your trip as it often has a longer expiration date compared to non-organic milk. Also, have a meal in the freezer for your family – pasta sauce, ham, meatloaf, etc.  Additionally, keep some frozen fruit in the freezer for breakfast the next day.  This way, if you arrive to your home too late to hit the grocery store you will be able to get by with a few meals!

You will thank UltimateMama when you arrive home with hungry kids late at night!

Once again, UlimateMama cannot stress routine enough.  Feed your child at the same times each day!

When your child is eating solid food you and your childcare provider should record
exactly what the child ate at each meal. 
It is especially important in the early months or years to pay attention to your child’s
reactions after meals when new foods are introduced. 

– did the child seem to like the taste?

– did the child enjoy the texture?

– did the child have any adverse reactions or allergies?
(rash, diarrhea,
gas, constipation, etc.) 

Make notes in a daily log book
providing details on the child’s eating habits. 
Samples of such notes as follows:

– the child ate light at breakfast but had a hearty appetite
at lunch and dinner

– the child ate all of his meat at lunch

– the child didn’t eat much cauliflower at dinner

– the child seemed to enjoy the pureed green beans
introduced at lunch today

– the child likes the pureed butternut squash over the
jarred butternut squash

– the child ate the pieces of cheese but threw all of the
peas off the high chair’s tray table
