What has driven me to start making banana bread with pureed cauliflower? ( no joke, I tried it today it was good)
Before Silas was born I was proud of the fact that my two kids were super eaters....I may even have crossed the line into smugness. My first two kids will eat just about anything including foods that most kids don't like. Spinach, peppers, tomatoes, black and green olives, edamame, hummus etc. Romans favorite food is oysters from the can. Their typical snack would consist of trail mix made with whole raw walnuts, almonds , sunflower seeds and dried fruit. That all changed with Silas . He would act like I was trying to poison him when trying to feed him babyfood. Even at a year old he would spit out yogurt if it contained a piece of fruit. He prefers his food in liquid form. All this wouldn't have been so bad if he had been an average weight but by 12 months his height was 90th percentile and his weight had fallen off the bottom of the chart....he had been holding out at the 3rd percentile for several months before. I remember the public health nurse looking at me like I had been starving my child and referring me to see the nutritionist and dietition....gasp...me?
