Harper is slowly becoming somewhat of a challenge to feed. And it’s driving me insane. Up until a few weeks ago, he was known as my garbage disposal because he would eat ANYTHING I put in front of him.
While he has always enjoyed both fruits and vegetables, he has preferred vegetables to fruits ever since he started solids. I could put a head of broccoli in front of him and he’d chow down on it. I loved it! I never thought he’d become a picky eater.
Now he’s exactly the opposite – he LOVES fruit. And vegetables? Well…sometimes he’ll eat them, but they mostly end up on the floor. I’m having to be sneaky about the healthy stuff these days. Like today…I made him this for lunch:
A turkey sandwich with cheese, avocado and tomato on it.
Might I add that it looks absolutely delicious?!
I put cheese all over the place and melted it because Harp loves cheese and I figured if the good things were stuck in between the cheese, he wouldn’t notice. Either that, or he wouldn’t feel like sitting and picking through it in order to remove the “yucky” things. Hahaha! Oh buddy, was I fooling myself!
This was the end result:
It’s frustrating to put so much time, effort and money into getting your kid to eat their veggies only for them to be thrown to the side! So…I need some tips/advice from you seasoned mothers out there! Is there anything I can do differently? Or should I just not press the issue in hopes that it’s just a phase?
