My son goes to daycare. I was never really sad about this because my sister works at the daycare that he goes to, so I know that she was always there to check on him.

I work full-time but luckily my DD stays home with my DH. It is a blessing in disguise. It is hard being the bread winner at times but he loves the time he gets with her.

My littlest one is home with me as I am a SAHM. But my older started Pre-K this year. Their meal program is state funded so she's actually getting healthy and balanced meals. They also have a daycare program... actually, that's their main purpose and they just got the grant to run a Pre-K last year... so all the kids there are getting the same quality of food. Sure, there are some things mixed in there that aren't ideal (like mac & cheese day) but overall, I'm impressed. And even more so that my usually picky child is coming home and reporting that she did eat most or all of her food

Hi! I work from home and we have a nanny that comes to our house weekdays while I'm working to watch our 3 boys. It works out great for us because it feels like the best of both worlds and is probably the most manageable.
Even in our own house I still struggle to make sure our kids are eating healthy food and appropriate portions. It seems like everywhere we go, the kid meal choices basically consist of mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, goldfish and fries. I think, no wonder my kids are getting so picky about eating healthy food! We let them have everything but try to keep a balance of healthy food most of the time and processed or junk food only occasionally. I feel the extra effort is totally worth it. My kids are still very picky and still eat their fair share of junk food but we always have a fruit or veggie with every meal and I'll make them eat something healthy before their unhealthy snack.
We eat all the same things you mentioned. My kids also really like oatmeal, bananas, blueberries, raisins and yogurt. Applesauce and the fruit/veggie purees in the pouches are convenient for traveling and so are the go-gurt yogurts - but even those you have to check the labels to see which ones are really healthy because a lot of them have a lot of sugar or high fructose corn syrup. I found a lot of kid-friendly meals on pinterest too. They're not always a hit with my kids but I'm trying. ;)

Who cares for your little one(s) while you are at work?

I am lucky to be a teacher and my summer is ending, so my little guy is going back to daycare tomorrow. I hate that part. It's harder for me to leave him than it is for him. We love the care he gets there.
The only issue I have is they don't serve the healthiest food there. I don't allow them to give him juice. And this year I am going to start sending his snacks at least because they almost always give his age group cookies or crackers, and not even appropriate portions. So far I am sending unsweetened applesauce cups, cheese sticks, and baggies with grapes. Those are his favorites. Any other ideas I could send that would be low maintenance for the teachers in his room?
