Where to begin... My son has decided that he won't eat food that isn't crap. He just pointed to some oranges and told me "I will not eat that at school" He's having snack right now I went through a list of things he could have; cheese and apple, banana and milk, cheerios... he wants cake. So he's having an apple and cake. It's getting to where no matter what I make for dinner (and I'm a badass cook) he wants either a scrambled egg, peanut butter & jelly, a cheese sandwich or goldfish. There is no fucking way I'm letting my son eat goldfish for dinner; they may be whole grain but the sodium is so high. Oh yeah, and he's decided he hates milk.
I've attempted to sneak spinach into spaghetti sauce which worked but he hates spaghetti now. There are days when his lunch box still has the real food I pack for him in it.
I just don't get it; if a child is hungry they'll eat, right? Maybe he's just three and being willful but I'm still worried about proper nutrition.
