Always Eating

As a father of three kids, something I struggle with is their constant eating. Who knew when you had a kid you actually had to feed them? That’s sarcasm… kind of. But in all seriousness, I had no idea they’d eat this much. I have two sons, seventeen and twelve, and a fourteen year-old daughter. They’re eating me out of house and home. 

For the past couple of months, it’s seemed like the school lunches I was making just weren’t cutting it. They all eat double the amount I do. I understand that they’re growing, but my goodness. That’s a lot of meal prep each morning. It would start back up at 4pm when they get home from school up until 8pm before dessert. How many hours could one man spend in the kitchen? All I wanted was some time for myself when I found exactly what I was looking for.

I was after literally any way to minimise the time I spent preparing meals. When I came across the idea, I was skeptical that the portions wouldn’t be big enough and I’d be preparing meals anyway. My skepticism was quickly curbed when I decided to try the weight loss meal delivery Melbourne service, where the meals came ready-made and the kids could defrost them whenever they needed. They were also eating less frequently! I guess these meals are packed with more substance than the ones I was making were. Fine by me.

Now that I’m spending less time in the kitchen, I feel like a better Dad. We have time for many more after school activities, and I can even help the kids with their homework, rather than acting like their personal chef every day. The impact of the diet meal delivery on our family has been immense, and I am so glad I’ve made the switch over to pre-prepared meals. Talk about wins all around!
