And my streak of children who eat most things is over.
Henry has been developing a picky-streak in relation to veggies for a while, but he can still be coaxed into them on most days. (Like, "You want a piece of bread? The peas have to go first," style).
But then there is Ezra. What is up with this kid? He doesn't eat MOST things. I don't understand it.
He will eat the following:
Cereal with milk
Crackers with peanut butter/jelly
Bananas (kind of maybe)
ANNNNDD that's it.
(Please note the distinct lack of meat. He started out liking them and now just throws them on the floor.)
He doesn't like bread of any kind most days (Randomly he ate a quarter of a peanut butter sandwich yesterday. Progress?)
Ezra thinks veggies are gag-worthy (raw, cooked, sauted, NO! NO! NO!)
It's hard only because we do the whole "offer lots of healthy variety" thing and it hasn't worked. All my other kids appreciated a huge range of things and only Henry has gotten remotely picky about stuff.
I don't quite know what to do with him. It goes against everything in my little Morgan-heart to offer foods to children that are not "the meal". Yes, I know he's 14 months old, but this a NEW problem, after three other kids.
(Spencer has eaten exactly ONE THING he didn't like and it was mushrooms. I don't blame him. Oliver is pretty steady, he likes most stuff.)
Anyone have some brilliant ways to convince a baby to try new things?
