On Saturday night I decided to make Cole something he would actually eat, it's been a little heart breaking for me to send him to bed with out dinner every night so I made him his favorite; chicken nuggets and smiley face fries. He hardly even ate this. After we cleared the table he says "I'm so hungry! I need a snack, my tummy is grumbling". Such. a. stinker. I didn't give in though.
On Sunday I tried again with something he likes. Pizza. But, I made a margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella, parmesan, fresh tomatoes and basil. Everything was chopped up small so it wasn't as scary for him and with some coaxing he ate it! What a relief.
Then Monday came. We went out for a nice family lunch and some shopping and Cole was exhausted by the time we got home, he took a three hour nap! I decided to make some pasta that night since he had tried it and liked it at my mother's house the week before. Cole was still asleep when I ran out to the store to get some stuff to make a salad and when I came home my husband had already given him chicken nuggets and fries!! Well, I made the pasta with marinara with carmelized onions and roasted garlic for us and we did get Cole to try a bite.
Maybe there is some hope for this kid?
