Okay, so this may seem like a no-brainer, but I had to post it. On most afternoons, A gets to choose a dvd to watch while I prepare supper. She sits on the couch with her special blanket, cuddles up and watches.
I've found that A tends to graze, rather than eat big meals. We try sitting down to a meal, but she just eats more if it is left out for her. For now, I'm okay with that, as long as she's eating. I also found that she will usually eat a snack while she watches a dvd if I put it in front of her.
Her snacks kept tipping over and then I realized I could just use a little plastic container to hold her treats in. This one is from Target, and it used to hold markers for my kindergarteners. It's perfect to hold a couple snacks and her cup. So easy...why didn't I think of it sooner?
