What is the first thing we do at the Little Light House before diving into snack or lunch? Thank God through prayer, of course! 

There are many reasons why we love to begin mealtimes in prayer, but one reason is it alerts our kids that food is coming soon. This is helpful to our picky eaters, especially, who may have anxiety around mealtimes.

Be sure to check out the lyrics to our two different mealtime prayers we sing as a class at the Little Light House along with some other ways you can give a heads up that mealtime is approaching by clicking the download button below.
