Taken from "The Battles of The Prophet" by Ibn Kathir page 85-87
Ibn Ishaq said, "I have heard some stories about the digging of the trench in which there is an example of Allah's justifying His Messenger and confirming his prophetic office, things which the Muslims saw with their eyes."
In the context, Al Bukhari narrated on the authority of Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) who said, "We were digging (the trench) on the day of Al-Khandaq (i.e., trench) and we came accros a big solid rock.
We went to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said, 'Here is a rock appearing accros the trench.'
He said, "I am coming down."
Then he got up, and a stone was tied to his belly for we had not eaten anything for three days. So the Prophet (peace and blessingsf Allah be upon him) took the spade and struck the big solid rock and it became like sand.
I said, 'O Allah's Messenger! Allow me to go home.' (When the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, allowed me) I said to my wife, 'I saw the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in a state that I cannot treat lightly.
'Have you got something (for him to eat?)'
She replied, 'I have barley and a she-goat.'
So, I slaughtered the she-kid and she ground the barley; then we put the meat in the earthnware cooking pot.
Then I came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of ALlah be upon him) when the dough had became soft and fermented and (the meat in) the pot over the stone trivet had nearly been well-cooked, and said, 'I have got a little food prepared, so he get up O Allah's Messenger, you and one or two men along with you (for the food).'
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asked, 'How much is that food?'
I told him about it. He said, 'It is abundant and good. Tell your wife not to remove the earthenware pot from the fire and not to take out any bread from the oven until I reach there.'
Then he said (to all his Companions), 'Get up.'
So, the Muhajirun and the Ansar got up.
When I came to my wife, I said, 'Allah's peace be upon you! The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came along with the Muhajirun and the Ansar and those who were present with them.'
She said, 'Did the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) ask you (how much food you had)?'
I replied, 'Yes.'
Then the Prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, 'Enter and do not throng.'
The Prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) started cutting the bread (into pieces) and put the cooked meat over it. He covered the earthenware pot and the pot whenever he took something out of them. He would give the food to his Companions and take the meat out of the pot. He went on cutting the bread and scooping the meat (for his Companions) untill they all ate their fill, and even then, some food remained. Then the Prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said (to my wife),
'Eat and present to others as the people are struck with hunger.'"
From another hadith that:
"They were one thousand who took the meals, by Allah they all eat, and when they left the food and went away, the earthenware pot was still bubbling (full of meat) as if it had not decreased, our dough was still being baked as if nothing had been taken from it."
My kids shared the story above after listening the Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in masjid.
From that story, we learn that we have to put trust in Allah and the power of dua.
Insha Allah, you will share the story to your kids at home.
