Thursday Thirteen #95: Thirteen Things My Kids Will Eat

May 30th, 2007

Dear Thursday Thirteeners and the Usual Suspects,

Is food an issue at your house? It isn’t here since my father-in-law taught me this neat trick: Just give them whatever they want.

13 Things My Kids Will Eat

13. Dinner out. Always. Seven nights a week would be good by them.

12. “Dino Mac!” (Annie’s Organic Mac and Cheese) “Not that other kind! Dino Mac!”

11. Cheese pizza

10. Waffles & pancakes

9. Strawberries? No. Raspberries.

8. Raspberry & strawberry breakfast bars

7. Chocolate milk & hot cocoa

6. Cheese sandwiches! And tomato soup!

5. “I like when you turn off the computer and make Dino Mac for me!” (No doing until I’ve posted. Sorry, kid.) “Dino Nuggets!” (Chicken nuggets from Costco.)

4. Bagels with cream cheese & any kind of jam. No, just raspberry.

3. Ice cream, cookies & candy

2. “And cake!”

1. Spaghetti with marinara and tons of fresh grated parmesan.

    My youngest (9 months old) will eat pretty much everything except bananas and cheese. My oldest (4 years old) would be happiest if it were breakfast every meal. Happy TT.

    When my son was nursing he had 3 chins. At least. He was a rolly-polly curly haired blonde cherub. At age 18 months, he went on what I refer to as the “Air Diet” He would eat about 1-3 bites any of the following: yogurt, any flavor, cheese, apples, pretzels and inexplicably, broccoli. After the 3 bites (on a good day) “I full.” He would then be “full” for 6-8 hours. I was so grateful when he added pb&j to his menu. Now? Himself is 12 and eats any thing (except meat) and in large quantities, please. My point (and I do have one) is that this too shall pass. Probably.

    My mom keeps my 3yr old some days and I will ask what he ate and she has told me before–Ice cream or cake for breakfast.. I use to cringe, but I have learned that it really doesn’t matter, because he does eat regular food at other times…I don’t force him to eat either… he will eat when he’s hungry…spaghetti is a regular food at my house also…

    Love the list. I, too, would eat cake at every meal. Ice cream is a nice nutritional addition – dairy. :) How about cheese cake… hmmm, is that nutritious?
