BUT...VEGGIES. They are a no go.
Not always though. There are some random days that he will chose to eat a green bean.... The only thing I have gotten him to consistently eat is beans. Like black beans.... And he is will usually eat them better if I put them on a fork?? I have no idea why they apparently taste different on a fork.
BUT, as soon as I turn my back... this happens:
My. Newly. Vacuumed. And. Mopped. Clean. Floor.
This is almost a daily occurance now. I have tried being stern and giving him a time out when he throws food on the floor, I have tried making him clean it up, I have tried a combination of things... I dont know if he thinks if they aren't on his tray he doesn't have to eat them...because today I caught him stuffing a bean into the catcher part of his bib...nice Hayd..nice...very sneaky. Little do kids know that as soon as your a mom you have eyes everywhere! And sometimes he just throws food or swings his arms super fast on his tray clearing the food to be funny... he screams and laughs hysterically. And then I cant help but laugh at how much fun he is having...its a nasty cycle.
I have tried just giving veggies first and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. I dont know what to do with him. I am paranoid about what he eats. I want him to get the things and nutrients he needs to grow and develop big and strong....but he won't eat his veggies. He LOVED all the veggies pureed in baby food. But not table food form.
He loves cheese so much Ive considered melting cheese over all his veggies. Disgusting? Maybe...But what the heck do I do to get him to eat them?
HELP! Did anyone else's kids do this? My game plan for now is just to keep giving them to him. Loading a fork with veggies one pea at a time if I have too....Any suggestions please?
How can I stay mad at this face though....
He was soooo handsome this Sunday. He looked like such a little man. He was not having the picture taking though. Right after this picture he threw a total fit...weird he didn't want to sit still some more after having to be quiet through all of church. But I HAD to get some pictures. So thats why these pictures look like they are all over the place, because Hayden was all over the place :)
I really love this picture. :) I love my two men...
