A Toddler’s Guide to Eating in 10 Easy Rules
Somewhere between the start of solid foods and preschool, it happened. Your child was gifted “The Rulebook”. You’ll think, maybe my little face stuffer is getting sick. Maybe she’s tired. Maybe he’s teething. Then the endless hunger and interest in trying everything kicks back in again, but only for a short 12 hours. They’ll spend the next 5-10 years following it diligently; with short bursts of weakness. Those binge periods are what fuel their loyalties to their race. The rules are subject to change and include but are not limited to the following-
- If I liked it yesterday, I will not like it today. Unless I do.
- I want a banana. Unless Mom opens one for herself also. Then I do not want my banana. Why does she ruin everything?
- 20% of all food must hit the floor.
- Food that comes from dirt is gross, but actual dirt is delicious. Sand is also good.
- NEVER like the same thing as your sister, at the same meal.
- Eat ANYTHING if Mom promises chocolate after. Then tell her how delicious her cooking was.
- Juice is a meal.
- Milk is a meal.
- Chic fil A is ALWAYS good. If you are extra rotten on a busy day, your Mom will buy you Chic Fila. Ha. That’s my favorite song.
- Absolutely never ever drink anything when you have a fever.
