If you’re like me, you dread the summertime simply because when the kids are home, all they do is EAT.
Eat. Play. Eat. Eat. Fight. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
Mine are still toddlers at almost 4,3 but they eat.
They get close to a month off for the summer from preschool and the hotter it gets the bigger their appetite is.
(older pic but still..)
Being a mom takes a lot of imagination when it’s meal time and I don’t mind someone else doing the cooking, especially if it’s free. And Daddy loves to hear FREE too.
To keep you from digging too deep in your pockets here is a list of FREE meals for the kiddos right here in Metro Atlanta from Atlanta Parent magazine and few other online sites.
Keep scrolling to start grubbing. You’ll thank me later.
