I think I've said that more times than I can count. Meal time is such a drag at my house, at least when it comes to Anthony's mealtime. He is such a picky eater. He is bored of baby food yet he doesn't seem to be interested in regular table food. Whenever I feed him something if he doesn't like it he just spits it out. Drives me crazy. He should be off formula by now and on to whole milk, but of course he doesn't like it. Yes I've tried mixing it and he cannot be fooled. If there is milk in it he wont touch it. I have tried numerous things and so far have not found much he likes. This is concerning to me because he was only in the 10th percentile for weight at his 1 year check up, weighing 19 pounds 14 ounces.
Here is a very short list of what he will eat.
Pancakes with butter and maple syrup
peanut butter and jelly sandwich (sometimes)
Here is the longer list of the things I've tried that he spits out.
vegetable risotto (from baby food recipe book)
macaroni and cheese
oatmeal (baby oatmeal or regular instant oatmeal)
broccoli cheese soup
So could somebody please tell me what babies like to eat, cause I can't seem to figure it out.
Do I just give him the few things he will eat over and over? Surely it can't be that nutritious to just eat yogurt, pancakes, fruit and pbj's day after day.
Any suggestions for getting him off the formula and onto milk? My friend suggested adding Ovaltine to flavor it, but I haven't tried that yet. I plan on picking some up next time I'm out shopping.
