It was one of the biggest things I did not want to happen to me. I thought we were in the clear. Elle loved all foods when we started baby food and finger foods. She ate most of everything. Then...it stopped. Now she is eating pretty much...NOTHING.
Picky, picky, picky.
Let me preface this by saying she does eat at a different time than we do and does not eat what we eat for dinner. With Kenny's schedule being different everyday and we never know what time he will arrive home night to night week to week it is just to hard to prepare dinner, keep it warm and as a family sit down to dinner. I hope/plan for this to change in the future but for now this is what works. Elle eats around 6. Kenny gets home around then. Then he does bath time, stories and bedtime while I make dinner for us.
I have talked to our pediatrician and we have looked at her weight gain because Elle is pretty small and she says that her weight is on the lower percentage but isn't abnormal and that being picky is normal for her age. So I am just praying that she will become less picky in the future and I am trying my hardest not to cater completely to the pickiness and give her junky bland foods that are unhealthy. Our ped. and I decided that on days where I do not feel like she eats anything then we will give her a Pediasure for extra calories and nutrition.
In addition: Please know I do not care/judge you if you give your child chicken nuggets. No high horse here. Elle eats Chick Fil A chicken nuggets once a week probably and gobbles them up. This post was intended to be more a vent about Elle being picky than chicken nuggets.
