As I've mentioned before, my Lydia is a PICKY eater!! Lately it feels like it's gotten worse, or maybe I'm just noticing more through the different food during the holidays meals. Honestly during most of out holiday meals, Lydia ate bread, biscuits, fruit, some raw carrots and juice.
This week we've been putting the same variety of foods in front of Lydia but this time we're limiting her fruit and bread until she finishes more of her meats and veggies...
I don't like conflict at meals. But I don't want Lydia missing out on all the proteins and vitamins, either.
Two days ago I fixed some yummy sauteed pork chops.... when we "laid down the law" Lydia knew she wasn't going to just to eat the bread we had on the table. A few minutes later she started to eat.... she ate ALL of her pork chops. And then some of the leftovers the next afternoon!!
Last night we fixed spaghetti and meatballs. Usually if our spaghetti has larger pieces of meat (ie, sausage, chicken,etc) Lydia will just eat the spaghetti. In fact we've joked about switching Christopher and Lydia's plates when they stop eating because Lydia usually leaves all her meat and Christoher leaves all his spaghetti!!!
But last night, she LOVED her meatballs! She had two more servings of meatballs... she ate a little more than an adult serving!!
While I doubt this is the end of our "picky little eater" at least she is eating SOMETHING NEW!!!
Here is a fun pic of Christopher and his yummy meal:)
