As a mom and social media lover, I turned to TikTok to find some recipes and tricks for feeding my toddler. I started looking for experts, but I realized that the best tips were from regular parents like me. The life hacks I’ve learned in the space of just one minute are amazing, especially when it comes to nourishing my family. It has inspired me to start cooking, and I now enjoy having fun in the kitchen with my daughter every day.
How does it work?
After I started liking and following several parents’ accounts, TikTok knew what my interests were, and my feed got even better. Don’t be anxious if at first you see dancing or funny things in your feed because the algorithm will learn your preferences fast.
Who should you follow?
To help you get your account started or improve your feed, I’ve rounded up some of the most practical and useful TikTok accounts made by parents and experts, for parents.
