Nowadays, maintaining your family budget becomes a challenge when your child is a picky eater. Most moms go overboard just to make sure their carts have the food their picky eater wants.
While it's true that you get to provide your child's favorite food, it still doesn't hide the fact that your family budget went to items you could have done without. But don't fret moms, Lactum 3+/6+ recommend these tips to ensure that not only does your picky eater gets to enjoy his every meal, but would also ensure that you are still within your budget:
Scrutinize the Items. This said though, expect to spend extra time buying groceries. Make it a habit to make lists, check store flyers, and compare unit prices on packages. At first, this might slow down the process of strolling through the grocery aisles, but knowing the products well will be advantageous especially when on a budget and with a picky eater in the family.
Cook more meals at home. Having a picky eater at home is hard work. Sometimes, we know moms tend to give in to their child's cravings by bringing them to their favorite restaurants. This habit does not only blow up your expenses but it also makes your child eat unhealthy meals. Why not try to mimic their favorite dishes instead? This way, you get to control the preparation of meals by including healthy ingredients. You will also be able to save extra money.
Stock up only the best. Another tip for a mom-on-a-budget would be to stock up on fresh produce and canned goods. This way, you can plan meals way ahead of time and be able to study different kinds of dishes with your ingredients on hand. This way too, you are ensured that you won't run out of nourishing meals and drinks for your picky eater—like Lactum 3+ or 6+!
