Picky Eaters Unite

Miss Eliza Marie has decided she is going to join the picky eaters club! All of a sudden she is shunning food she once devoured. She is still scarfing down most fruits and veggies so I can't really complain. AAHHH well I knew her eat anything attitude was too good to last. I am not really stressing it though because I am not about to get into a power struggle over food with a 19 month old.

I offer her what I am making for dinner. I try to make things I know she likes. I may give her one alternative-like pasta-but I am not a short order cook and that is not going to change.

I am going pack my muffin tins with healthy snack options a little more often. She is just super busy most of the time. I think she is just too busy to eat. It doesn't really bother me if she comes and goes and snacks here and there.

Only two more computer free days and I will be back.

Welcome to the club! Our Little H is too busy to be in her high chair..she does better at a little table (E has a little table doesn't she?)I really don't think they need much at this age and they will eat what they need to so I try not to stress...it is frustrating to see a meal go uneaten though!

N has a very limited menu himself...yogrut, bananas, oatmeal, cereal/granola bars and ketchup. No he doesn't dunk anything but his fingers in the ketchup!
It is very frustrating.

I think my little one is looking into joining this club too. But I'm encouraging otherwise by not giving in! What ways are you using the muffins tins? For meals and/or snacks?
