Cheerios, a staple in most Canadian homes has recently teamed up with babycenter.ca, launching a new site section called "First Foods".
I was invited to join this blog tour and immediately thought, "umm... I don't have babies anymore", but really, what a great way to share some of our family happenings surrounding first foods and eating.
As most of you know, we have 3 girls. The older 2 are twins and are 5.5 years old. Our youngest is 2.5 years old. I remember when my big girls were small (look at those smiles below), we struggled with the mere logistics of feeding 2 babies at once. In order to maintain a schedule and our sanity, it was important for them to eat roughly at the same time... after all, we're not running a snack bar here.
They were both what I would call 'good eaters' so we never struggled with making food exciting. We struggled with only having 2 hands... the solution... not rocket science... use ONE spoon and ONE bowl! There really is no need to struggle with managing 2 bowls and 2 spoons at once and alternating - they're sisters, they're twins and they chew on the same toys, sometimes at the SAME TIME!
Here are a couple pics of my twin cuties when they were younger *sigh* - they ate their fair share of Cheerios - despite finding them in the sofa, in the car and in their diapers (don't ask!)!
Now that the girls are nearly 6, they STILL love the Cheerios brand. They're now big into Apple Cinnamon and Honey Nut!
With the launch of the Cheerios First Foods section of babycenter.ca, you'll have a one-stop site for answering all of your feeding questions - when do I buy a highchair, what about allergies??
