This one has given us a run for our money in the picky department. Food? Who needs food? He's happy to survive on love and adventure. When I was a new mother a few years ago, I remember reading a Dr. Sears book that discussed picky toddler eaters (don't you love that man?). He suggested taking an ice cube tray, filling it with various foods (fruit, cheese, crackers) and then leaving it out for your toddler to graze on.
As it so happened, our first two were very enthusiastic and even adventurous eaters. We never had to worry about it. But Hugo. Oh, Hugo. The current rule in the house is that Hugo gets just about whatever he wants to eat whenever he wants it, because this boy just does not care about food. We actually tried preparing our own version of a peanut butter mix used to fatten up children in developing countries (thanks, Irene!) to no avail. He's just a skinny little thing. Don't worry darling Hugo, you're just fine.
Current foods that are tolerated include scrambled eggs, rice, strawberries, and cereal. And of course everything tastes better when you feed yourself.
Any tips from moms and dads of picky eaters?
