Hey Everyone, it’s Munchkin Meals time!
Munchkin Meals is a link up that Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life created to share what her daughter was eating, I link-up monthly to share what Emmett’s been eating.
It’s been awhile since I posted a Munchkin Meals update, I apologize for that! Rest assured that Emmett’s palate continues to advance, and he now has favorites. 🙂
Most days, whatever we make for dinner, we will give to Emmett as well. There are times, when it’s a spicy meal, we’ll make him something else, but we usually start with whatever we are eating. Occasionally we’ll have to veer from that and give him yogurt or a grilled cheese sandwich because he’s refusing to eat what we made, but we try at least offer it to him. It seems to work. As of late, he’s eaten things like shredded salsa chicken and pulled pork, two things he had never tried before and now LOVES!
It’s fun to give him new foods and watch him experience the different tastes and textures. One of his most recent favorites are garlic stuffed green olives from the olive bar at Wegmans. You wouldn’t think an 18 month old toddler would like green olives, but he does. He’s just like his momma (although, I hated them as a kid).
Emmett has never been big on eating meat, other than chicken nuggets, he usually refuses chicken breast or even burgers. What we found recently, is that he likes shredded meat. I can’t explain why, but I’m not going to question it, we’ll just take a few minutes before dinner and shread up the chicken, steak or pork and serve it to him that way. As for burgers, well, I don’t have answer for that. 😀
Be sure to stop on over and visit Brittany, and link-up with her Munchkin Meals!
