This Week’s Topic: How does your toddler’s mealtime go usually?
My Squishy used to be the King of the Plate!
He would eat anything I put in front of him. Trees (aka Broccoli), Squash, Melon, Grapes, Peas, Tofu, Soy Dogs, Pasta, Yogurt, Chicken, Turkey, PB&J, Fish Sticks, Fake Chicken Nuggets, Mac & Cheese. The list could go on and on…
I thought we were one of the lucky ones who skipped the whole picky thing… But it seemed like the day he turned two he decided to be sassy about his food!
But now? Now it is hit or miss. Currently he is obsessed with “Bars” (Breakfast Bars, Granola Bars, anything in Bar form really…) and “Yurts” (Yurt =Yogurt or Fruit/Veggie Pouches like Plum Organics or Ella’s Kitchen)
That seems to be all he asks for these days. Honestly, I don’t mind the pouches at all, at least I know he is getting his veggies in this way. But it can be frustrating when I prepare a nice meal, and he just smashes it or throws it.
On days when he doesn’t eat much at all, I substitute one almond milk with a PediaSure (I just wish they weren’t so loaded with sugar.) My pediatrician also recommended a multi-vitamin on days when he isn’t eating well. We like SmartyPants.
As for the food throwing, smashing, and for the first time ever today a tantrum over his food, I am implementing the one warning system.
One warning to start eating like a big boy or he will be done. If I do have to take him down, he will be able to go back to him meal if/when he calms down.
Once we finally graduate out of the highchair fully (we have tried a couple of times, but he likes his high chair…) we are going to start to do some fun meals like bento boxes, color meals, and muffin tin meals. Hopefully that will get him back to trying new things and enjoying all food! I still think he is a bit young for this now.
