* home made hash brown patatoes, sunny side up egg.. and some ham
(breakfast really but loves it for dinner)
* we don't do much of a pasta as it is just bad habit and empty callories
as it is mostly dry grains that used to be a plant years ago.. and lost
most of it had to offer during the shelf life :-) then was processed and cooked so we are talking plain fuel here.. so she has it sometimes but
only very occassionally.. when we get lazy... or nothing else is around :-)
* soup with lots of things going on in it borderline of stew..
My DD eats breakfast very late.. some 2 hours after waking up as she nurses a lot on a wake up so that kills her apetite for good. I stopped chasing her for breakfast as I just go with the flow and she will eat when she is ready, at least till we nurse I know that she is just sattisfied. Then she eats the breakfest on her terms with apetite.
Lunch is on the same terms, she is ready then she eats depending how much she ate for breakfast.. but it is kind of slow.. starts fast and slows down as one of pp noted.. :-)
Dinner is welcommed always with entusasm.
we do sometimes MC D although it is super bad and yacky but
sometimes we are out in town and long and she won't look at
much anything else so we give in..
we do let her have any sweet snacks she wants as we usually
have lots of dry fruits and kind of healthy options candies
or gummy bears made of real fruits form whole foods store..
or raisins in youghurt.. as above..
I like sweets in moderations, I think that brain needs sweets
and if she wants some she gest them, I first offer fruit and
most of the time it is enough or she will have both.
she is not abusing sweets, so I think it is healthier then
forbidden fruit as people in later life go on the binges..
I never had it forbidden as a kid and I never have any
wild cravings.. aside from pregnancy
I like small sweet something and it is never always..
and never big and I can do without.. and it is not
everyday anyways but maybe few times a week at most
and we are talking a candy or two.. oooooooops it is not about
