As I write this, she is sitting at the other end of the table scarfing down her lunch of:
- 1/3 cup chicken noodle stew with cereal
- 1/3 cup cottage cheese
- 3 steamed carrot sticks
- 1 strip of toast (left over from her mid-morning snack)
- 1 handful of peas
- 1 handful of puffed corn
- 1 handful of cheerios
- 1 inch of banana
It's insane! This is on top of what she ate this morning:
- 2 pieces of toast
- 1/2 cup apples and cereal
- 3 inches of banana
- 1/3 cup apple/mango/peach puree
Watch out people...she's an eating machine! You don't want to be around when she's hungry and mommy and daddy can't get the food to the table fast enough. Our normally sedate little girl turns into a holy terror of whining and screaming. It's actually kind of funny when she sees us reach for the box of cereal (a.k.a. baby crack) she starts kicking her legs and pounding on her tray in anticipation. She can't even wait long enough for us to stir the stuff.
Last month I prepared an entire deep freezer of food for her and we've been plowing our way through it ever since. We're getting to the bottom of the barrel and are looking for some new ideas. What are some of your kids' favorites?
