These days it takes over an hour for Enzo to eat a meal. And not just because he rejects most things we give him. Which he does, of course. Because my sweet little curry-lovin’ hummus and pita eating machine has turned over a new leaf. His diet now consists almost entirely of cottage cheese, strawberries, and wheat toast. How can he be so adventurous in so many ways except in his palate??

ANYWAY it takes forever to get food in his mouth. It seems now that he’s mastered walking, he’s moved on to other tasks…

Anyone have an adventurous eater out there and feel like sharing some tips and tricks???

Ally Em is my first adventurous eater. She has never met a new food she’s not willing to try and usually it meets with her approval. Kevin turned his nose up at everything we offered him and his diet consisted of fish sticks. It was pathetic. Now he’s 14 and eats everything that isn’t hidden. Ben was and still is a creature of habit. SAME SAME SAME is good, different is not. I don’t know WHAT I did differently with Ally. My thoughts are that probably, I did nothing at all and it’s really up to the child what they put in their mouth. It’s the one thing they can control and we cannot (well, to an extent anyways). My dr. (and many others) will tell you not to look at their day as a measurement of how balanced their diet was, but to look back on their week instead. That was how I got through Kevin’s toddler years.

Ugh, food is such a battle! N will eat like 4 things. Drives me insane. I cannot get him to eat fruit for the life of me! Hang in there. 🙂

The only thing I’ve figured out is that everything is a phase that probably won’t last longer than a couple of weeks. Helps me keep things in perspective 🙂

Maybe it’s a blessing that it takes him so long – he can entertain himself with food while you get some work done, cook the next meal ahead of time, or answer some emails?

At this age Jonas survived mostly on little puffs. Then it was nothing but sausage. I feel your pain.
