Eating habits of a toddler...

As anyone knows, telling a toddler what to eat (and having them listen) is close to impossible. Just this morning I woke up early and made Bug a scrambled egg with cheese, normally a favorite but due to holiday ciaos breakfast have been yogurt, Cheerios, and juice lately. She took one look at it and said, "No, me no like. No want." Then handed them to the dog. And yes, we end up eating Cheerios, yogurt, and juice... again.
So, here is where I give props to the chef who created the menu at Cafe Hon. As I skimmed the kids menu the other day I noticed the 'toddler plate' which included: 2 slices of American cheese, 1 slice of white bread, cucumber slices, French fries, and a pickle. Brilliant, must have been a mother!!

"Me no like" they teach that in "how to be a successful at the terrible two's" school, I think the course is called, "how to drive your parents insane."

We are currently on a chicken nuggets kick, morning, noon and night...

It doesn't get much better when they get older. My eight year old still complains about anything that I make for dinner. She won't eat chicken, pasta, fish of any kind including fish sticks, nothing with mayo, and get this not even mac and cheese. She would be happy living off of steak, burgers, french fries, pizza, and hot dogs. Not exactly healthy. Although I can get a salad or two past her every once in a while. We have come up with a new motto "You will eat what ever I make you or you can spend the rest of your life grounded". She has made more of an effort now. Thankfully my three year old will eat anything you put in front of him. I think the picky eating is a girl thing.
