My 15 month old has just SORTED his lunch! Is this normal?

I just dumped peas, carrots, potato and chicken on his highchair trya, and he grabbed the bowl back, has seperated the potato and carrot and put it in the bowl, and is happily tucking into the peas and carrots.

is this odd? It looks mighty odd!

Sounds like a boy who knows what he wants

Aitch that's so funny

so true, belgo, the carrots don't deter her in any way from drinking the water...

DD3 (also 15m) filters out the peas and carrots in her mouth (she is not to fond of them). Spits them out into her fingers (keeping the rest of the food in her mouth).

Then she holds them out to me until I move her bowl within reach whereupon she deposits the food she doesn't want back in her bowl - ready fo the next spoonful.

Still I guess a lot of you get the unwanted food thrown on the floor so we shouldn't complain . Will he eat the carrot potato?

I typoed, it's the chicken and potato he tries to avoid, he will eat the carrots and peas. He gets peas a lot, it's about the only protein he will take

sounds normal to me. boy is very good at extracting all the meat from a dish and eating it first.then finding all the vegtables and putting them on another plate. We now keep a spare bowl on the table for this as I got fed up of having half chewed dicards on my plate.
only way I can get carrots down him is to mash them up with spuds.

ds1 is nearly 5 yrs and always eats one type of thing at a time like all the veg first then all the potato etc. I think that's odd
