Score One for Mommy!

No, I didn't post this somewhat gross picture of my daughter to make you queasy. Instead, I want proof (and a hearty congratulations) that she is consuming broccoli and cauliflower. Emily and I have daily battles over what she eats. In short, I offer up a variety of fruits and vegetables, and she rejects them. That (with the exception of bananas and sugar-free applesauce, both of which she truly loves) pretty much sums it up. I've tried to be tricky, and occasionally can sneak in vegetables in soup without her realizing it, but they can't really amount to much. Yesterday, Emily and I went to the Farmer's Market and bought some locally grown broccoli and cauliflower. We went home, I cooked it, pureed it, and added it to some (organic!) macaroni and cheese and voila - success! Score one for mommy!


  1. Woohoo! I think that's what we're heading for. Elisabeth is already an incredibly picky eater. She will NOT eat vegetables. Most fruit is okay, though. Actually, she won't eat most things. *sigh* I may be consulting you for advice and tips!

  2. Awesome! Remember, your job is to just keep placing healthy things in front of her, over and over. Suddenly, she will try it :)
