In this episode of “The My Little Eater Podcast”, I address today’s troublesome reality for many parents around the world dealing with the effects of this pandemic. If you are struggling with meal ideas, how to respond to your child when they want their tenth snack of the day, or what to do if you run out of your child’s safe foods – you NEED to listen to this episode! I address your fears and anxieties, while providing tangible solutions that you can begin implementing right away. 

If you are still worried about what to cook during this pandemic, or how to prepare healthy, delicious meals with limited ingredients, after listening to this episode, I have a blog post for you. Take a look at “Family Friendly Meal Ideas to Make Out of Common Pantry Items” – it’s written specifically for our current reality and can even give you tips on what to include on your next grocery order!
