Breakfast Cookies or Breakfast Yuckies
While I'm writing about food and my eaters that I have to feed in my house, I'd just like to say that it annoys me when TV chefs tell me that "kids love this dish" or "have your kids help you and they'll eat the meal." My first child is thankfully growing out of his hyper-gagging and vomiting stage of life so he no longer gags at the table when I make him try at least a bite of new foods. I remember that he vomited all over the table when I made him try butternut squash soup. Just gagged everything up. And then child number two can gag down the food that doesn't appeal to him but he doesn't like things like rice and pasta that number one likes and number three lives on. And child number three would not touch bread, couldn't touch bread without shivering when she was little and first started eating food. That was a weird one. I'm not sure she'll ever eat like a normal person in her life but I had to leave that battle alone because it was making some very awful dinner-time experiences. Child number four is my best eater. Finally the one who followed the parenting books advice on feeding children that "if they see you eat it they'll want to eat it too." At least with lots of things she does. But the others? HA!
I think that next week we'll just have cereal every morning again.
