As Little m is getting older she is also becoming pickier with what she wants to eat. I used to be able to feed her ANYTHING and it would be gone in minutes. Now, she karate chops me when she sees me coming with a spoon. She spits her purees out. Her once beloved fruits like blueberries and mangoes are tossed overboard for the doggie. Her pediatrician told me, "Food before one is just for fun." I agree, BUT things can become frustrating when the wee babe sits in her highchair screaming and swatting at the foods she used to like but no longer does, for reasons unknown. That's not fun for me or her.
What I need are ideas. It was perfect timing when Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life came up with the Munchkin Meals link up. Mama bloggers are showing what they're feeding their babies and from this I am hoping to find several ideas for future meals!
For breakfast, I recently found Little m's new fave - pancakes! I make a big batch of wholewheat pancakes and add the frozen pureed fruit that Little m no longer wants to eat. So far I've tried blueberry and banana and both were a hit. She loves being independent and feeding herself like a big girl, so now I just give her a whole pancake instead of bite size pieces. I do my best at every meal to include some proteins and carbs and fruits or veggies, but well, it's a work in progress.
So there you have it, Little m's mealtime eating at 9-10 months of age! I'm lucky I have a fairly good eater!
