  1. Prep as much as you can in advance. Depending on the recipe, try to prep as much as you can the night before to make the mornings go much more smoothly. Whether that is chopping up vegetables or mixing ingredients together, do as much as you can. You can store all your prepared ingredients in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
  2. Involve your kids in the kitchen. My son is only 17 months old, but I find that even at his age, when I involve him in the cooking process by getting him to "help" me in his learning tower (whether it's transferring chopped vegetables from a plate to a pot, or playing with tupperware), he eats his meal much more readily.
  3. Pack the lunch and snacks in a cute lunch box and containers. There are so many options that you can choose from with a whole variety of designs. I've linked my favourite bento-style lunch box, insulated lunch bag, kids cutlery, and toddler cutlery.
  4. Opt for foods that aren't super messy.
