Meg grew up in Connecticut and when she wasn’t busy pretending to be a mom, she was in the kitchen learning family recipes. She won over her husband, Alan, whom she met her freshman year at Stanford, with some very fancy homecooked meals. After working in finance and strategy for Gap and NBC-Universal, Meg returned to Stanford where she earned her MBA. Now with three kids of her own (Avery, 5; Brooks, 4 and Ryder 1), Meg’s husband doesn’t see too many of those fancy meals. But her kids eat very well! She believes good food is all it takes to make a friend, and she is grateful for all the friends she has made through her videos.

  1. No offense to meg or anyone, but whose kid actually eats whole wheat sunflower gluten free granola chips? And other veggies? It's hard to get kids to eat food like that, any tips? But still I'm a kid and eat pb and j for lunch chips and something to drink.

  2. My favourite food for lunch is cereal put milk in a thermos and cereal in a separate container and when it's lunch time pour the milk into your container so simple and easy!!!

  3. Have these moms not heard of things such as: rice cakes with their fave spread (nut free of course), general leftovers from dinner the night before, a canteen where they can buy food, bringing their kids hot food, salad with a little bit of meat on the side, or just a good old fashioned vegemite on whole-meal bread sandwich?

  4. You can see all the work you put into your videos, that's why I love this channel!! I'm due in 3 weeks and your channel has helped me. Thanks😊
