Eating Habits

This post is dedicated to the unique eating habits of my funky munky. Her favorite foods still include fruits and vegetables thankfully. She loves green beans, potatoes, corn (plain or on the cob), mandarin oranges, bananas, blueberries, peas, watermelon, and probably others I'm not thinking of right now. Milk is still pretty easy to get her to drink, although she prefers chocolate over white, thanks Daddy! She is not fond of hard cheese surprisingly enough. However, if it is a dip she will eat it. In fact she'll eat anything if you give her something to dip it in. Lemons in ketchup, YUM! This drive me nuts as I can't stand it when my food touches.

Other dairy foods that she likes to eat are yogurt and cottage cheese, although this one depends on her mood. She likes her morning oatmeal, eggs, pancakes, waffles, bacon (sometimes), and especially donuts. We can thank Grandpa for that one. Are we noticing a pattern yet? Everyone else feeds her junk and mean mommy won't ever let her have anything fun.

Truthfully she is not too much of a picky eater, and does eat pretty healthy foods most of the time. The occasional junk isn't going to hurt overall, but I'm not planning on introducing certain items until I have to, like soda or candy. Contrary to popular belief, even if that fruit punch or Hi-C is 100% vitamin C, it's still pure sugar and she doesn't need it. I'd rather she drink water.

She's still not a big fan of meat. She will eat chicken once in a while, and does the occasional chicken nugget. But overall meat just isn't her thing right now.

She loves pudding and cookies, although we try to limit her to lower sugar ones like vanilla wafers and newtons. Loves her Cheerios and hates Kix. Devours macaroni and cheese. If she could make her own favorite meal, what would she have? Probably mac and cheese, chocolate milk, and maybe green beans. But first she'd have to dip the beans in the cheese. Throw in some corn on the cob, and she'd be in heaven.
