Toddler Meals – Toddler Talk Thursday
“How does your toddler’s mealtime go usually? How do you deal with not eating, or picky eaters?“
Katie is not so much of a picky eater as a…NON-eater.
We have always had trouble getting her to eat much, even from the very beginning
, when we struggled with her lazy nursing and lack of weight gain.
We can get her to eat a little bit of almost anything, but it is rare for her to want to eat what we feel is enough.
Two bites and she’s “all done!”
Even the above ice cream cake we made her for her birthday she only ate about half of it before she was satisfied, (even though she loves ice cream, and is always excited to eat it!)
Victoria is another story, (thank goodness!)
She can stow it away!
Much of it still ends up on her face, bib…and thumb these days, however.
I’ve started to not worry about Katie so much…she is growing and gaining weight, albeit slowly.
She eats healthy food: some of her favorites include scrambled eggs, broccoli, and green beans, (!!) so we’re good in that department.
I can always get her to drink quite a bit of a breakfast smoothie, so we do that pretty often.
Right now we are in the midst of a no-dairy trial period to see if it helps her constantly runny nose and congestion go away.
It has been difficult…I didn’t realize how many of my go-to dishes included milk or cheese. Or chocolate! (Which almost always has milk in it.)
It will be worth it, though, if we find that it clears up these issues she’s been dealing with.
In the mean time, I’d love any dairy-free recipes or tips you can give me!
