what's for lunch?
Just like every other mom in the world, I suppose, I worry that he doesn't eat enough. Seriously, there are nights when I can't go to sleep worrying that he didn't really eat anything all day.
This lunch is rather blanc, wouldn't you say? But the boy won't touch anything of any color for fear that it's a vegetable. I've tried nearly every vegetable under the sun. He'll eat some of them some of the time but most of them not at all. And attempts to "hide" them in food have failed miserably. Maybe he's a super-taster?
Anyway, today's lunch is a hit...I've learned to not give him too many choices on the plate...3 things that he likes equally seems to be working. And if I put a whole big sandwich on his plate, even if it's cut into quarters, it's overwhelming to him. A small round sandwich is much more inviting.
