Am just having the usual mother's guilt and a bit of doubt over what I feed DS - and how much he eats, or doesn't eat.
Today I am giving him: 6 rice cakes with avacado (bleurgh) Steamed babycorn and asparagus (!!! because I can't stand the stuff) halved grapes, red and green plum a biscuit if he isn't fed up by then maybe watermelon if he eats none of the fruit as he will always make room for this, if nothing else...
Should I be giving more carbs? More fibre?
Also I can't stand slimy squidgy avacado but have loads left, what else can I do with it?
Of the above a good 2/3 will end up on the floor... I wish he ate more.
I'm with you on this, DS doesn't seem to be eating much at the moment. I'm putting it down to teething. I think though that it could do with more carbs/protein though. It's really hard to get a balanced diet isn't it? I'm struggling.
Relax, he will eventually. Just keep presenting different options to explore. Think of it as messy play time! It's all a learning experience. What about chopping up a banana with a blob of custard on the top and let him get really messy.
They get all the nutrients they need from milk at this age so if he's taking milk I wouldn't worry too much.
Are you sitting with him to eat? They love to mimic and it would be good for him to see you eating so he can copy.
