I feel like a freakin’ rockstar! Thanks to Jessica Sienfield and her lifesaver of a book Deceptivly Delicious, I am rockin the food pyramid like nobodies buisness. A few days ago, I was in the dumps over my child’s eating habits. You can see my previous dismay here.
Today, Cooper’s menu included:
Recipes from the book with *
2 Sweet Potato Pancakes *
Tender Chicken and Stars (Earth’s Best Organic baby food with peas and carrots)
Meatballs made with butternut squash puree *
1 cup of mixed berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries)
If you were counting, you would know that is 2 meats, 2 dairy, 1 whole grain, 3 veggies and 3+fruits. *Insert happy dance* He is not so into milk, and I think it is upsetting his stomach, but we are working on that one. I have said countless times today as Cooper put something in his mouth he would otherwise spit out, “Haha, gotcha!” Yep, to my 1 year old. I am up for no Mom of the year awards. In your face Dr. Sears.
