Lucas isn’t a picky eater and I am very grateful for that. I hope this continues until he he gets older. I don’t know what we did right. Maybe it’s giving him home-cooked baby food and, later on, meals. Maybe introducing him to various kinds of food also did the trick.
I am not saying he will eat everything, but it’s not difficult to feed him the “good stuff”. Right now, a household staple would be squash, oatmeal, bananas, peanut butter, carrots and anything in Chop Suey.
He has also developed liking for specific snacks:
Yogurt and yogurt milk.
Nothing special about these pancakes. It’s same recipe as the letter pancakes, only I made it smaller. Lucas likes eating with his hands than being spoon-fed.
Mami’s cake pops and mini doughnuts.
I like it when he’d tip toe by the dining table sniffing for some of these freshly-baked goodies. I personally like the chocolate doughnut recipe because it’s not too sweet. Plus, it’s baked, not fried. Need I say more? 🙂
Grapes. With skins on!
He loved peeled grapes. I would peel him a batch everyday. He finally learned to eat a whole grape. He’d still spit out the skin but we’re getting there. Plus I don’t have to peel them anymore. 🙂 I specifically buy crimson seedless grapes. They are sweeter than the other grapes I’ve tasted from the supermarket.
Cheers to you, Little Jedi! And to your happy, healthy eating habit. I am glad that at least one member of our family is eating healthy. 🙂
