Do any of you mamas out there get into a rut? It is time to feed your baby/toddler and you walk into the kitchen and can’t think of a dang thing to feed him/her? Or you feel as though they eat the same things day in and day out? I definitely feel like this. So I decided to share with you wonderful moms out there how to get out of the food rut. You would think after 5 kids I would always have these amazing food ideas but I still find myself searching for new things to feed the babies.
