|I'm Juliette, Oscar's Mum. I love cooking. |
This is Oscar. He cries if I cook him anything other than pasta with cheese.
He loves eating, don't get me wrong, he will eat a huge portion of the food he likes. It's just that the things he likes are few and far between - Pasta, Pears, Porridge, Cheese and Vanilla Yoghurt isn't far from the full list. He would be very happy if that was all he ever ate.
I, on the other hand, want to look after my little boy and would like him to eat a varied diet. Not only super healthy meals (although that would be amazing) or even quite healthy meals but yummy treats too - just good food.
It's not like I am cooking him horrible meals, ok well, there might have been a few disasters, but generally it's good. I've done my time, I've been to cookery school and I have a Cordon Bleu qualification but still there is so much that gets rejected...sigh.
My husband Nick it brilliant, he doesn't mind, he gets to eat what Oscar won't and has faith in my culinary abilities.
So, the battle is on and this is a journal of our mealtime mayhem and the things we are discovering and learning along the way.
I would love to hear from anyone else out there who feeds fussy kids and spends their days blending and hiding vegetables. Please drop me an e-mail at - firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your stories.
