Adventures in feeding a toddler

Sometimes I don't understand how kids manage to stay healthy. There are days that Julien will only eat yogurt....or applesauce.....

I am not of the mind to put it in front of them and if they eat it fine, if they don't then they won't starve. In my mind, I don't eat food I don't like, so I don't expect anyone else to do it either. I won't make a completely seperate meal for him, but I will offer him yogurt and toast once we are finished eating if he has chosen not to eat what was made.

Although, one trick I recently discovered was feeding him from my plate. I cut up his food, put it on my plate and in between my own bites of dinner, I offer him chicken/ham/turkety etc on my fork, and 90% of the time he will actually eat it.....but, if I then put it onto his plate and give him a fork, he stops.......

Just a random pointless post for the day
