My passion for cooking and eating wholesome foods really took off after having my (now four-year old) daughter. Like so many first time moms, I tried my best. I nursed, made everything from scratch, kept her diet as organic and simple as possible and did a victory dance each time she would eat a vegetable. Tim (my husband) and I pretty much eat everything so I had big hopes for this kid but boy oh boy was I wrong.
She is the quintessential picky toddler and maybe even worse. Hates vegetables, won’t eat red sauce and doesn’t like sweets (so no bribing this kid with muffins or cookies). Her diet consists of bread, cheese, yogurt, macaroni and cheese, some fruit (were talking honey crisp apples only and strawberries), an occasional slice of pizza and earths best organic chicken nuggets. A small part of my foodie heart dies each time she refuses to try something new or throws an anti-food tantrum….
