The Budget Friendly Snack Guide for Single Moms
When in doubt go with big-people foods cut up into pinky-nail size bites and well cooked until soft.
As an artist and single mom budgeting is super important to the health of my little family. Keeping within a sound budget is both vital for surviving and for thriving. A stressed out mom is bad for doggie, baby and work. So to keep me sane, I've picked up some solid tips on planning snacks for my little that don't make me sweat bullets and hide my wallet.
Cheerios. Cereal is easy for a little to eat when they only have a few teeth and it’s pretty cheap. Watch out though that cheerios themselves can have a lot of sugar in them.
Lentils and carrots. Lentils offer a great source of iron and a tasty form of fiber. Carrots come in playful colors and are wonderful for growing eyeballs.
Brown rice pudding. Brown rice with milk and honey and a cut-up date is a tasty and pretty healthy treat. Watch out for sticky spoons and flying pudding.
