The war against pasta

When Noah was little and I was introducing solids and textures, I was cautious. I wasn't adventurous. I didn't give him lots of variety. Mostly because I didn't really know what to do. And I felt the need to not overwhelm Noah. And I'm totally reaping the consequences of that now. Noah tends to be quite picky and textures {like pasta} that are wobbly or wiggly he gags at or just plain out refuses to try it.

I've definitely learned my lesson. I've introduced and re-introduced foods to Jude until he tries it and eats it. Namely, pasta. Noah will NOT eat pasta. Not even alphaghetti. Or kraft dinner. {I'm so serious.} Pasta has got to be the easiest meal to make for kids so I was determined to have at least one child who will eat pasta.
And we're finally there.
{And he's using a spoon!}
Check it:

He's messy, but um...he's eating PASTA! I am happy. 


  1. I think I am Opposite Land to you. I was the same with Kyler - didn't give much variety, was cautious in what I gave him, but now he eats practically anything and everything (minus stews and such). But for Brayden, I introduced everything and he is a very picky eater. And also, will not do pasta! Did when he was 8 months or so, but not now. It could be his tongue tie as well... *sigh* I hope he starts to eat more things, because I literally feel liik I have run out of ideas with Brayden! Haha!

  2. That is SO strange, although, I HAVE heard that somewhere else before, I think it was Monisha who was advised to introduce EVERYTHING to her children at a young age, except for sugar of course, though, it does seem that every parent caves with on the first birthday with icing on the cake! Poor Noah, he's definitely missing out!


I love hearing from you!
