Lesson #128: Win One, Mom

Some lessons never go out of style.

Remember how I “tricked” Mila? Yep. Apparently, you can do that with solid food, too.

I have been having a hard time getting Mila to eat vegetables. She loved ’em then didn’t. So, today when I already failed with broccoli for lunch, I took what she didn’t eat and tossed it into her scrambled eggs.

Oh yeah, Mila ate her broccoli today.

Update: Attempted the same thing with the zucchini she didn’t eat at dinner last night. As long as it didn’t fall out of the egg (or she didn’t spit it out), this worked, too. Not as well as the broccoli, though.

Lesson #95: Food Tricks

Apparently you can trick a baby into eating what she doesn’t care for much at all.

On the third attempt with peas, I added in sweet potatoes and Mila gobbled it up. No problems at all!

That was a while ago… today, I mixed kiwi with banana oatmeal and Mila gobbled it up! She had kiwi with regular oatmeal the other day and made the same faces and coughing noises.

Mila does really well with new foods, not that you’d know it from these pictures. I tried Gala apples the second time around and she liked those much better. The peas are fine as long as they’re mixed with something. And the only thing I haven’t gotten her to eat yet are avocados. Maybe it’s the greasy texture…but those came right back up!
