A MUM has shared her genius time-saving hack for feeding the kids in lockdown by making her own “canteen.”
Taking to the Facebook group Organising Ideas Australia, the anonymous parent shared a snap of the snack station she had created for her two boys aged 12 and 13.
She had assembled a range of sandwiches, fruit, popcorn, nuts and a handful of chocolate eggs on a plate for her sons to help themselves to.
Captioning her snap, she wrote: “I'm a little sick of constantly being in the kitchen so this is what I did for my two boys today.
According to the mum the trick had been a huge success with her kids, with fellow parents eager to copy the idea themselves.
Some admitted they had already put the idea in place after becoming bored of constantly catering for their children.
Commenting, one wrote: “I've done this every school holidays for years. Pack their lunchbox like we would for school and that's what they get for the day."
Agreeing a second said: “Mr two and four have their own baskets in the fridge. I was over being the slave in the kitchen for them every five minutes."
