I love lollipop. Dad didn’t introduce chocolates till I was almost 3 years old. I wasn’t aware of chocolates at all and never liked the taste anyway. I love fruits and juices but like fresh ones.
So going back to lollipop, when I was in Hyderabad, Jessie akka and others used to eat lollipops in my presence and I got curious. Mom decided to cheat and get me one. Wow! It was amazing and I loved it. It is one of my favorite snacks now. Dad gets me so many flavours and shapes. Whenever I am cranky or looking for a snack, I pop one open 🙂
Now let me go back to my play. Have fun.
I am so small that I can be fussy and still mom would whip up something fresh for me. Not that I am fussy all the time. Or may be I am. I have a choice of eating what mom makes for me or asking for something special. Usually mom already makes something special for me.
I like eating finger-food like fries, chicken cheese balls, nachos, peas, boiled vegetables (sometimes) and things like that. Mom makes amazing patties for me and serves them with garnish and I can’t resist. Mom can do these amazing fast in the short time I am about to get hungry to when I get hungry. Anything she makes is first tested on dad and we wait for symptoms and if all is well, then offered to me.
I like juices a lot. If nothing works out and I am not eating properly here come juices and soups and stews to make me feel comfortable. Ammamma makes one of the best mutton soup in the world and she makes it in a jiffy. I relish on the food offered to me. Nanamma on the other hand makes the best fish curry in the world and I don’t complain about the food for the 3-4 days the curries are with us. One such box is coming tomorrow and I just can’t wait.
Because I am a fussy eater (which child is not!?), mom displays amazing patience with me while feeding and lets me be comfortable while ensuring I get all the nutrients. Tough job she has!
What about your child? What do they like eating?
