Parenting is the hardest, yet most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. Trying to get picky toddlers to eat is hard enough with all food options, but on a limited diet it’s even harder
Our go to meals for our dairy allergic son are chicken, ground turkey, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, burritos, peanut butter and jelly and rice bowls. Breakfast is usually eggs, oatmeal, toast, pancakes, and French toast.
Our daughter on the other hand is much harder to feed. She usually eats lunch meat (turkey or ham) chicken, ground turkey, rice bowls, fruits and vegetables. Her breakfast is usually eggs, rice bread toast, and safe pancakes from scratch. Her snacks are hard because she has one or two types of crackers she can safely eat, fruits, vegetables, and one of two type of store bought cookies. She is becoming more vocal about what she wants or doesn’t want and it’s getting harder to meal plan. Today was a preview of what the future holds with her tantrum at lunch. She wanted what brother had and not what was on her tray.
It’s a challenge to not deprive Nick of foods he can eat but not tease Adelyn with foods she can’t eat.
