I used to feel envious of other parents who had kids that would gobble up anything they put in front of their toddler. How was it that my child would be the one that wanted to move nonstop and refuse to eat half the stuff we would make for him? Hunny, try this peach. No! Hunny, try this rice. No! Hunny, try this French fry. No! Which then we would default back to asking if he wanted avocado toast. Yes! But I’m changing my envious ways and accepting that I have a selective eater. Not picky but selective. He eats well and has his favorites. He just doesn’t care to eat everything and anything we put in front of him. And that’s ok. It didn’t always feel that way and I thought that I needed to push more often to get him to eat other things. But why create frustration or unnecessary stress for myself just to get him to try meat or grilled cheese? Maybe this is a sign that he’ll be a foodie and has discernible taste. In due time he’ll be ready to explore new tastes and flavors. For now, I’ll pick my battles and this isn’t one of them.
