These past two weeks with Hailey’s (22 months) eating have been odd. I’m not sure if it was teething, her schedule being thrown off because of vacation or if it’s a new stage in her eating development, but meals have been more simple. Some as simple as yogurt and chia seeds with fruit.
Sometimes a wheat English muffin thrown in if we’re feeling wild.
Some of the simplicity I can blame on my laziness nutty schedule (that fortunately should be calming down soon).
I’ve tried to get fancy a few times…
but with lackluster results. The only foods eaten in the above meal were the olives, the goat cheese and 1/2 a red pepper strip.
Hailey seems to have gotten wary of peels in the past week. She will scrape the flesh off a pepper stick then leave the skin; same with peaches. It’s an odd new behavior for her and I’m waiting to see if it sticks around or is just a phase.
I can always count on her eating three things, though. First, fish.
Secondly, avocado. I love that she loves this one.
Finally, cream cheese sandwiches. It’s a recently discovered favorite food. She gets really excited when she asks for ‘Cweem Teeze!’
Life should calm down by next week, and then I am looking forward to getting back on track with serving vegetables on a consistent basis to her, but until then, avocado, cream cheese and fish will do just fine.
Also, I have to share these cute snacks I’m talking about on Thursday on WCCB News Rising…
I had so much fun creating alternative versions to the classic Ants on a Log.
Celery, peanut butter, raisins
Celery, cream cheese, craisins
Celery, hummus, black olives
Red pepper, guacamole and black beans
Now, let’s hear from you!
