As thankful as I am that Caleb is eating, I would really like for him to eat something other than cheese pizza, grilled cheese, cheesy brown rice...you get the picture.
We went for his 15 month check up today and he gained 2 pounds in the last 2 months, which is completely wonderful since he hadn't previously gained ANY weight since his 9 month check up.
For lunch i decided to trick him a little. I made him a smoothie using frozen yogurt, milk, strawberries, peaches and...spinach!
The other flavors completely overwhelmed the spinach taste and he drank it! I wouldn't say he liked it quite as much as a milkshake, but he liked it enough to drink most of it. I am so excited that I tricked my snookums into getting a little dose of vitamins that he really needs. Do any of you have any other "trick" recipes to share? I have heard of that cookbook "Deceptively Delicious" that is supposed to have all kinds of recipes that trick kids into getting their veggies. I may just have to go check it out.
For dinner he ate a big tray full of macaroni and cheese with ketchup (yuck!) and finished it off with a big helping of fresh strawberries...at least I can get this kid to eat one good thing willingly :)
mommy, don't you want some?
