  • they 100% don’t eat everything but i am definitely lucky they eat a variety of foods. wasn’t luck that got us here. it takes effort to get all 3 of my kids to be okay eating different foods and textures and not just “kid food”. and it started when they were just a few months old. 

yes, of course my kids eat mac + cheese or pizza and hot dogs on occasion (we love the banza mac and cheese and pizza, yough pizza is great and butcher box has great hot dogs!). we don’t make all 3 meals a day 7 days a week and i dont restrict them from eating anything. but in our home we make everything with natural and simple ingredients. our meals and snacks easy and quick to prepare and i don’t try to “sneak veggies in” or lie to them about it. they’re always offered and sometimes they’re enjoyed and sometimes they’re called “yucky”. when i make my oven baked chicken nuggets, they know there are vegetables in there. same with my pesto, they know there is spinach in it yet they still eat it even if it is the forbidden color “green”😵‍💫

they help us cook when they want, we try to have them make their own choices on what they want to eat (within reason and usually we give options) and we don’t call foods “kid food” in our home or force anything. food is food and it’s meant to be enjoyed. of course each child is different in their preferences and eating habits like my 2 year old who will eat everything in sight for a week then the next day only eat bananas, meat sticks or drink milk🫣

try new things in the kitchen, know that no two days are the same with kids and it’s not always easy but try to have a little fun with the oh so dreaded meal time at times. and sometimes you can try it all and your kid still may be picky and want nothing that’s okay too. i used to only eat bacon grilled cheese and pizza bagels and i eventually grew out of it🙃sending everyone love and support for feedings - it is not easy!!!😘
