Potato Flatbread with Chicken Flakes

Since the school year started, I’ve been thinking of ways to be more creative with our breakfast. My goal is to feed my kids a filling meal in the morning so they could be energized in school and be able to participate in activities. My kids usually have bread and pancakes for breakfast. They rarely eat rice in the morning. I started working around the same time that the school year started, so I needed to create breakfast as quickly as I could. Below is a recipe that is filling and easy to prepare and perfect for families who don't eat rice for breakfast. This is also a recipe where you can prepare the chicken filling in advance and store it in the refrigerator and even prepare the flatbread recipe separately on different days. This is perfect for working moms like me. My Potato Flatbread with Chicken Flakes recipe is easy, delicious, and healthy! It’s the perfect grab-and-go breakfast for busy bods.   Potato Flatbread: Ingredients: ·     150 grams U.S. dehydrated po

Today : Cravings

It was already dinnertime and D was still asleep from his aftie nap. But few minutes later J called me and asked for yogurt. Why yogurt? J doesn’t eat yogurt in the first place. Oh, it was D. Unfortunately it wasn’t available in  our fridge. Also, I forgot to buy some during our grocery last weekend. Now I am in trouble. He just woke up and for sure he is in a bad mood. When J told him we ran out of yogurt, he started crying and was furious already. I went upstairs and tried to explain the situation. He really wanted yogurt. But I don’t understand where is the entire craving coming. He would normally ask food from me out of nowhere but when I tell him it’s not available he doesn’t get furious but this time it was hours of negotiation. When I told him it was already late and we cannot go out anymore to buy yogurt, he then asked for noodles! Holymoly! I just finished cooking a healthy and decent meal (chicken roast pot) for them and he was asking for noodles! Again, I told him we don’t have noodles and I want him to eat food I will be serving for dinner. But he was crying out of frustration. Instead he then asked for sandwich. 

He was riding his toycar at the same time eating his sandwich while we eat dinner and few minutes later, he told me he wanted to eat rice. Then, we are friends again and back to happy state like the crying never happened.

Sometimes I feel guilt for not giving him what he wants. But mom instinct tells me that what if in the long run he would ask for more material things and I won’t be able to provide him? What would happen then? I want to teach him contentment that he should be happy for whatever he has in life.

How about you? How do you deal with your kids’ wants?
