Not all moms will have the energy and enthusiasm to cook “grand” meals for their kids, such as this 19-year-old mom who considers herself “lazy” to prepare food for her children.
Being such, she is fond of preparing five-minute dishes for her kids, but look like gourmet feasts, and social media netizens are giving her a standing ovation.
The teenage mom of two toddlers, who is also a TikToker who goes by the handle @alexis_marie125 on the platform, shares videos of the meals she makes for her kids.
Some of the meals she shares on TikTok include one which only has hot dogs, chicken rice and vegetables, and another that combines pizza and marshmallows, among many others. All easy to prepare.
Despite some comments she is getting asking her if the food she feeds her children are balanced, she is mostly receiving praises from netizens.
“My son has Taco Bell and a donut for dinner. You’re doing great!” said one.
“Good job, at least they’re fed! My parents did the same thing as we were growing up,” another said.
Netizen @dumgf, meanwhile, commented, “Fed babies are happy babies, and props for cutting the strawberries and everything, sometimes I don’t have the energy for that.”
“I had my first son at 16 and had my daughter at 20. They are 30 and 27 now,” netizen @valleygurldragon wrote. “Time goes by so quickly. Cherish these meals. you’ll remember them fondly.”
The teenage mom also has something to say to her detractors.
In one of her TikTok videos, she spoke up, saying, “I know that I make a lot of people mad by what I choose to feed my kids. I feed them what I know that they like and what I know that they will eat. Now, I’m not saying that I don’t introduce new foods to them. But if I see that they don’t like the food that I am giving them, I take a break and I don’t force that food onto them.”
