I need some mom suggestions...
I always said that I did not want to be the mom that let their child eat the same thing at every meal and I am afraid that I am turning into that mom. I always try to fix him different things but he will grunt and throw the food on the floor. I always admired Kate Gosselin (strange, I know) because she cooks a meal and her children either eat it or they don't get dinner. I want Parker to be a child who will eat and try lots of different foods but right now we are on a path of Parker being a toothpick and his mommy pulling her hair out! :)
With that being said, he is becoming picky and I need some suggestions on some new things to try. Right now these are the things that I can always count on him to eat:
Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Swirl Bread
Whole Wheat Waffles with blueberries
Whole Wheat pancakes
Tyson Chicken nuggets
Sometimes mashed potatoes
He loves french fries and I try to avoid that unless we are in a restaurant and he's acting like a maniac. He actually did eat my spaghetti last night which is huge. For a few weeks, he was just refusing to eat. He would turn his head to the side and say, "All gone!" The only meat he will eat is chicken nuggets. I am concerned that he's not getting enough protein.
What are some things that you feed your children? Now keep in mind, he still only has two teeth! (Poor thing. He's probably going to start kindergarten with only two teeth!)
