Lately, I've been trying to include more veggies and fruits into his diet, and trying to cook more at home. It's definitely not easy. I was told by several people to learn how to hide more veggies into his food (by blending, etc.), but I've been trying not to do that because I want him to appreciate vegetables; actually learn to like them. It's been a slow process. When I first started serving veggies to BJ, he pretty much refused. Then, I got him to eat a couple of raw carrots (*gasp*) by serving some chive & onion dip with it. He mostly ate dip but hey... a couple of carrots is better than nothing. haha.
Tonight, we ate sausage and squash with rice, but BJ was only eating the rice!
I didn't want to force squash down his throat, because I think that would be considered child abuse, lol, so I bribed him instead! For every bite of squash, he got to eat a small potato chip. lol... Like I said, I'm not the perfect parent... but the fact that he's eating veggies at all is a small step towards healthy eating! He even ate a banana for dessert! If you have any suggestions on healthy eating, please let me know... but don't criticize me. I'm trying!!! :-)
