Speaking of food....

A local mommy message board I am on, from here on out referred to as the ADMers, has lots of awesome bloggers like her, her, her & her - the fearless leader of this adventure.  We are doing a blog hop, and no, I do not know what that means really - but you can play too by clicking on the mcklinky down there. And, leave some love to all the other awesome participants.

This weeks topic: What is your child's favorite and least favorite foods? Are you Happy about it? What do you do to promote a diverse palate?

Fitting huh? I didn't even know this was going to be the topic when I wrote this post. Am that good, clearly.

Favorite food of G - fruit. carbs. puffs.  she is a freaking puff-a-holic. But for real, she lurves her some fruit. All fruit. Am pleased.

Least favorite food of G - veggies.  In fact, she dislikes veggies so much at the current moment that I can't even hide them in other food (like french fries...) because she will magically eat everything in her mouth BUT the veggie, stick her tongue out with it on there and then gag. Yes. I am serious.  I think this talent is genetic as I her aunts did the same thing growing up..... 

I am totally happy about her choice to love all things fruit. I am not happy about her dislike of veggies, clearly.

We try to just give her some of everything at every meal.  I don't force food on her, but I do make her try everything even if she spit it out the last time we had it.  As we have discussed, I want her to have a more diverse palate and open to any and all suggestions on how to make this a succes!

Now, don't forget to join us each week (add the mcklinky to your page!) ) And visit Paige to join in all the fun. (and for way better directions on how to play)

Okay, I know it sucks, but I'm glad to hear someone else has at least a slight picky eater with the no veggies thing. Um, and I totally relate to the gagging. In both my son AND my husband. Yep, you read that right.

Interestingly, both of my kids love both fruits and veggies. Meat is the problem at our house.

Oh the puffs! I remember them all too well as we went through about a billion and one (ok, maybe not *quite* that many) containers of them. And I remember maybe sneaking a few of them as well, lol. I wish Livi was more of a fruit eater now though...

I think the "try everything" is such a good idea. I'll remember that when A hits the picky stage. She also eats fruit like it is going out of style. Which is alright with me.
