I share quite a bit of behind the scenes of how I feed my family over on Instagram and I decided to put together a version of my shopping list since I had a few requests. This download, which is free, is the way that I organize my food planning.
Now, clearly, there are hundreds of apps that do this sort of thing, but for me, I actually don’t like to walk around a store looking at my phone. But I do love crossing things off of lists and being able to organize my shopping at a quick glance. I realize that I might be behind the times on this one, but if you prefer a good old pen and piece of paper and you are set in your ways on this topic like I am, this might help.
Here are the basics:
- Things are organized by category so you can both get ideas for how to vary your diet—and that of your kiddo—but also so you can remember what you need to buy.
- There is extra space to add special ingredients or other things you might need at the store.
- I’ve included some foods that are helpful to have in the house when feeding toddlers including snacks, sauces, and all kinds of grains and pasta.
- The download is printable, so you can simply highlight or circle what you need and take the list to the store with you.
