Some days just feel like parenting failures when it comes to feeding my three-year old. Take today, for example.
Breakfast: toast with butter and cinnamon sugar, 1/2 bagel with cream cheese, milk (Why didn’t I give her fruit or peanut butter? I don’t know.)
Lunch: noodles, yogurt and broccoli. She also had on her plate asparagus and chick peas, both of which she likes, but she decided to forgo them.
Snack: applesauce, cheese stick, milk
Supper: most of 2 corn muffins, 2 bites of chili, the top of a chocolate chip blondie.
Yes, Sweet Potato had an all-carb day. I suppose my carb-aholic tendencies are rubbing off, but I always hope she’ll eat more of what is on offer. I also need to do a better job offering her high protein foods at breakfast in particular, as well as throughout the day. Well, tomorrow is another day…onward and upward!
