The Pea

My kids are difficult eaters. They weren't always that way. I made their baby food and they'd eat pretty much anything, green beans, corn, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes and every fruit I'd throw in to the processor too. I fed them avocados. They loved avocados. Now, those days are but a distant memory fading from my over-tired brain.

Bug has been known to try vegetables in recent months. But he wants to spit them right back out, and any attempt on our part to get him to swallow the vegetables results in him throwing EVERYTHING back up.

I'm convinced Bear watches everything Bug does and does not try and acts accordingly.

Here is a little clip of me trying to get Bear to eat a pea. One little pea. Make sure to listen close around the 0:42 mark. You'll get a good idea of how vegetables really affect my little Bug, even when he's not eating them himself.

Lol. Ok I think this is cute, but ofcourse, it's not my child. It's always cuter from the outside right?

This post could be about Ava - word for word. She LOVED all fruits and veggies, until we introduced them in their normal, whole state. Not pureed. Then she turned on us. She still loves her fruits, but veggies are off limits. I tried making veggie fritters once, and they were good for the first two bites. Then I think she figured out what was in them. She put the remainder on her plate and said, "All done, mommy."
