OutDaughtered quints and big sister Blayke never seem bored on weekends. In fact, Danielle and Adam Busby seem dedicated to keeping the kids interested in activities from Friday through each weekend. Even during the recent hurricanes, they found things for the kids to do at home. We reported that they all made beaded lanyards for their masks. But, Danielle ended up finishing them off. Now, they spent Sunday making popcorn.
OutDaughtered family enjoys a popcorn day at home
Danielle Busby took to her Instagram on Sunday night and shared about their fun popcorn day. She shared a lovely photo of Riley, Hazel, Parker, Ava and Olivia all in the kitchen. Circling the pot, they all looked like they hoped it would just hurry up. Obviously, those cute kids couldn’t wait for a tasty snack. The photo also showed a glimpse of Danielle’s new kitchen.
The OutDaughtered mom captioned her post with, “Popcorn making kind of day #sundayfunday.” One fan asked where the quints got their tees. But, they all look like Tie-Dye ones. And, we reported in early October that the kids all went outside and made their own tie-dye tees with ice. But, Danielle forgot to mark them. So, she hoped they knew who made each one. It looks like the tees the kids wore on popcorn-making Sunday might be those ones.
Is it okay for kids to eat popcorn?
Some people might wonder about kids eating popcorn. Is it okay, and is it good for them? Well, if you love the idea of some popping family fun, rest assured it’s fine. Except, you should avoid too much unhealthy topping, according to Healthline. Try and limit the topping to a bit of drizzled “butter” with “some grated Parmesan cheese on top.”
Other nutritious snacks that the OutDaughtered family might consider include “celery” with “raisins and peanut butter,” Or, “cottage cheese” on “whole-wheat toast.” Actually, “children who eat cheese are less likely to get cavities.” Perhaps Danielle Busby already gives the kids those types of snacks. She could also try baked sweet potato fries, carrot sticks and hummus or frozen fruit popsicles. She could get the kids to help prepare them and then later, they could all get into them on a hot day.
Other tips on snacks
Healthline also notes that people with kids should be careful about nuts. Although they come packed with nutrients, take care that none of your kids suffer from “nut allergies.” And, some kids can’t tolerate gluten. It looks like Danielle’s children seem okay with gluten. But if your kid struggles with it, fear not. The outlet suggests some recipes that look and sound equally scrumptious.
