Top Toddler Food Cafe Distractions
Have you ever planned a cafe date with a friend (and your delightful toddler) and attempted to have coffee? Pretty fun. It always starts the same way; you convince yourself that it will be a good idea, and it will be good for you to get out. Moments later you are sweating profusely, partaking in a spoon grabbing, hot coffee dodging, sugar flying duel. Your friend who does not have children, now does not want them, and you regret leaving the house.
This was me. And I see others. What I also see, are gossip deprived mothers plying their kids with prepackaged snack after snack after snack. I did it once, and I had a bloated, crabby Harry all afternoon. So now I have at my disposal some much healthier options that aren’t too messy, and at times give me up to 20 minutes of silent-child-peace.
- Leave the house when your babe is not too tired
- Make sure they are not starving, but could eat something
- Call ahead to find out if the cafe has a highchair, with four legs (preferably)
- Bring very tempting homemade snacks
- Bring a suction bowl to attach to the table
- Bring wipes
- Bring sense of humour
