I have never had a child who had texture issues with their food. Chase was a bird-like eater who only picked at what was put in front of him, but would eat it. Blake would eat anything given to him, no matter what it was, so feeding him was super easy. Maddisyn was also a bird-like eater but she was a bit pickier and didn’t really like meat. She would devour sausages cooked in spaghetti sauce or potatoes, and she LOVES corn on the cob but other than that she was hit or miss.
Holden on the other hand, I have not had a child this picky in my life, and hope that Kinley eats much better. He doesn’t like potatoes because the texture is too weird. Loves yogurt, cheese and other milk-like products, which is really great. Will eat sausages and sometimes pork chops but nothing else for meat. One thing this child will eat with zero doubt in my mind is rice! I could make a huge pot of rice, give him nothing but rice for supper and he would be beyond thrilled with it, and eat it all night long and not want to share haha. I don’t mind him eating it, but dang can he ever make a mess with it! haha.
Coping with the picky eaters and textural issues has become an ever painful thorn in my side, and I have resolved that my children WILL eat what is put in front of them or else they will eat nothing! No, I am not that mean usually, “nothing” for the little ones means cheese whiz sandwich which neither have a problem with and would eat it day and night if given the opportunity.
Does your house have a picky eater in it? How do you cope with it? What is their favorite, and least favorite foods?
