I’m disproportionately excited about carrots.
Why? Because this is the 3rd vegetable that F will eat. It’s taken us 7 & a half years to get here but Yay! (As I write this I had a flash back to 6 years ago and a dietician suggesting I try carrots for F as part of the “she won’t eat anything what should we do” plan.
Well, salt fiend that she is, finally she likes that they are sweet.
So what veggies have we got in the bag?
well, mostly the beans inside the pod (she picks them out herself)
ah, corn on the cob with lots of salt and butter
roasted, of course. The best way to cook carrots.
Coming up next! Butternut Squash
actually she likes this already. She thought the roasted orange delights she liked were carrots. And like the fiend I am, I went along with it. Then one day she caught me out and I thought “oh pants”.
She suprised me. She wanted carrots so I roasted some. She ate them.
so now no matter what I’m cooking for dinner, if she wants carrots, I put on the oven and roast carrots.
whatever it takes. I want her to eat so badly, I’ll do anything.
well, except when she asks me at 7pm. Then I make her wait until the next day. By the time they would be ready it would be bed time.
Oh, and if we don’t have any carrots in the house, then she’ll have to wait until the next shopping day.
Ok, I won’t do anything so that she will eat. But I do try very hard to have the things she likes to eat in the house. But if we are out, we’re out. Maybe she will try something else.
Note: I hate wasting anything so I just have to say: I use the small oven. I wouldn’t turn on the big oven just because she wanted carrots.
Oh and she eats tomato soup and ketchup (Heinz I love you). But not together, eww.
