I’m a picky eater. There. I said it. Now I really shouldn’t wonder where my kids get their pickiness from but, I do. Before I was a mom, I swore up and down I would give my kids fruits and veggies, nothing but the healthiest and the best for my little mini me.
My daughter, she started out really well. She would eat anything I gave her, it was glorious. As time went on, I was much more lenient with what she ate and eventually she developed her own taste for what her favorites were. She still eats well, loves fruits and veggies, but slowly she would choose less fruits and veggies, more crackers and cheese.
Now, my son, totally different story. I couldn’t get the kid to eat anything as a baby. No pears or peas as a baby for him. Oh no, it was milk or nothing. Slowly I started finding things he would like, fruit oatmeal and yogurt are a hit and now he’s almost two, and they’re pretty much still the only thing he likes. Any other food I give him, he literally looks like I tried to poison him. It’s a struggle and it makes me feel like a failure that my kids doesn’t eat as well as other kids. I try, I give him everything healthy and I even tried smoothies. Nothing worked.
Until now, I have a trick. I will make it fun! I’ll dress it up, put it in a fun container, on a fun plate, or in a fun muffin tin. I change it up every day so it’s new and never boring. My secret weapon is to have my daughter sit with him so he can watch her eat and almost instinctively, he follows her lead. Tyson Chicken Nuggets are a must have in my house.
