Last week, my little guy ate only Kimchee for dinner. He usually loves rice mixed with soy sauce and sesame seeds. But last night, he only wanted Kimchee (rinsed with water). It was fresh from the Korean market that day and it was very delicious.
Since then, he has these unusual meals consisting of a single course. We keep a daily log so it wasn’t that he had had extra snacks before his mealtimes. Our pediatrician said toddlers get picky with eating so not to worry. But it makes cooking for him challenging because I have to make different things in hopes that he’ll eat something else other than his one course. Thankfully, I don’t worry as much since he is still pooping like a champ!
Some of his meals include 1.5 Claussen pickles, 1 slice of Farmer John’s ham, a big bowl of grapes. Yesterday, his dinner was a big bowl of cantaloupe. Jeff and I were chowing down on Papa John’s pizza. Usually he loves pizza!
I wonder if he’s going to be a selective eater. When he was younger, after he had finally outgrown his food allergies, he ate everything! He used to love salmon, eggs and avocados. Now he won’t eat any of the super nutritious (and easy to cook) foods!
If anyone has advice to get selective eaters to eat more than one course, I’d love your words of wisdom. He seems lean to me already! He won’t even try one bite- he closes his mouth and says NO!
Here are some cutie pics of all the fun I missed while at work today.
I got home early and took him to the aquarium. He refused to walk by himself though so I had to carry him for a big chunk of the visit. Next time, I’ll have to bring the ERGO with me.
Thank you for sharing my day with me. Now it’s time to sit and watch a little TV. His choice tonight was Sight Words Level 3!
