Molly has been eating table food for quite a few months now. She knows what she likes and is certain about what she doesn’t like. There are even a few things that she tolerates, depending on her mood, of course. It is to early to tell if Molly will grow up to be a food critic, but I do know that at 17 months, she already has a rating scale for food.
Yumm, Yumm = this is great and yes, I will have some more please
Nutri-Grain bars (blueberry, strawberry and apple)
Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal without milk
mac ‘n cheese
spaghetti with sauce
Yumm = this is good, I will finish what is on my plate
chicken and rice
Fiber One brownies (got to get fiber in)
Spitting it out = this is not so good, please don’t serve this again until I am an adult
Feeding it to Tobi (our dog) = you shouldn’t have bothered to put this on my plate, I am not even going to try it
True confession of the night: There are a few foods I would like to feed to Tobi too.
