One day, she'll eat melon. The next day? She friggin' hates it. Yesterday, she gobbled up her chicken. But veggies? Disgusting. Don't even come near her with them.
The hubster and I had a couscous salad the other day - but Anna was having none of it. Then, just because I was snacking on the leftovers yesterday, she suddenly had to have some.
The child is odd.
I, on the other hand, will never say no to a good meal. Or a snack. Or an appetizer. Or a dessert. Or an amuse bouche... So I have a little trouble understanding my somewhat picky eater right now. (Mind you, my Mom tells me I was an INTENSELY picky eater when I was little. This must be my karma/payback).
So anyway. On with the point of the post.
Who out there has tips on getting your picky eater to eat healthy stuff? There are tons of things Anna will snack on, but I feel like she's living on cheese, yogurt and crackers and hummus. She should be eating other stuff, shouldn't she? How do I get her to love veggies again?
On a side note - how horrid would it be if Anna single-handedly brought back scurvy? (I'm Mom-of-the-year just for thinking that, aren't I?)
Help me out Mamas. What do your kids eat?
