He gets it from me.

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
  • carrots
  • little trees (aka broccoli) – steamed
  • salami
  • yogurt (right now he is on a Gogurt kick)
  • pasta
  • baked chicken strips
  • pretzels with peanut butter
  • PB&J sandwiches
  • tea
  • apples
  • bananas
  • rice & beans
  • cucumbers
  • bell pepper
  • peanuts, almonds
  • fruit & grain bars
  • peas
  • corn
  • tofu
  • bread & goat cheese
  • clementines
  • oatmeal
  • 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.
