Win for mom in the food battle!


As most of you know, FOOD has been a battle in my house with my four year old. Or I should say it was a battle, until I decided that it just wasn’t a battle worth fighting. For the longest time, CJ was so difficult with food. It’s still much easier to list the foods he will eat as opposed to the foods he won’t eat. His intake includes, crackers, chips, white American cheese, apples with no skin, bananas, sweet potatoes, fries (regular and sweet potato), yogurt, ice cream, fruit snacks, Kraft macaroni and cheese, fruit snacks, milk, pretzels… not a whole lot. But I must shout HOORAY!!!! This past two weeks we’ve made progress, he now eats chickens nuggets and grilled cheese. It started with McDonalds nuggets, which I know are definitely not the greatest but it was a start since this child would never eat any meat prior. Now he likes the Purdue Dinosaur preferred chicken nuggets and asks for them!!! Woohoo!!! He also decided just a few nights ago that grilled cheese was good; I didn’t even use regular bread (it was the Pepperidge Oatmeal bread) but I did use our dinosaur shape cutter and it had no crust! Progress for sure!! I am only hoping it continues this path and he continues trying things. It’s okay if he doesn’t like something but just hoping he tries them and he is getting a little more adventurous. On the other hand, my littlest man (18 months old) loves everything except cantaloupe. There isn’t anything he won’t try


About alyshacarmody

I'm an art teacher aka working mom that has two wonderful boys, ages 4 and 9 months. My husband is a police officer who works nights; so I find that my style of parenting isn't always what others approve of, but it works for us! I am very crafty so I am always finding new projects to try and think that I am "green" or at least try to be. My philosophy is live laughing and loving. This blog is intended as an adventure so we'll see how it goes...
