Jack is a good eater. I worried about this because his dad is definitely not a good eater (fruits and vegetables aren’t part of his diet at all). I needn’t have worried, though! I think between daycare and a few others in his life who will sit down and eat yummy foods with him, he has a fairly adventurous palate.
Jacks food repertoire includes:
- soy beans
- Baby Bel cheese rounds
- little trees (aka broccoli) – steamed
- yogurt (right now he is on a Gogurt kick)
- baked chicken strips
- pretzels with peanut butter
- PB&J sandwiches
- rice & beans
- bell pepper
- peanuts, almonds
- fruit & grain bars
- bread & goat cheese
- scrambled eggs
- waffles, french toast
He likes his share of junk, too, especially chocolate, but he doesn’t get a lot of it. Recently he discovered “real chocolate milk” (as opposed to “chocolate milk” which is what we called his milk for a long time) and has been asking me to make his milk brown. We limit this to once or twice a week. His favorite cookies seem to be David’s snickerdoodles (I can’t blame him – those things are gooood!).
It’s funny to me to look at this list now because even at a year it would take him a whole week to finish off a jar of baby food. He was so not into solids for a long, long time. Now he’s all about them and doesn’t even seem to remember nursing. I guess he’s a fan of whatever he is doing at the moment.
