Cheese, Bread, and Juice
What do you do with a boy who doesn't want to eat any of his usual foods other than cheese, bread, and juice? And the occasional potato product like fries. Two is asserting his control over dietary choices in a rather annoying fashion. For nearly three weeks now, he has refused to eat old favorites like yogurt, bananas, applesauce, carrots, and craisins. If you serve anything other than juice in his cup, he tosses it aside in disgust. He's pulling the same crap with my mom when he's at her house, so I know it's his issue and nothing to do with my cooking or the freshness of food in our home. Mixing unwanted foods in with the preferred items does no good, since he just picks out the choice bits. I'll be so glad when he moves past this.
