Can’t compare and don’t compare. Social media is good for things to do like playgrounds or crafts with children. But once you go wow that kid is such a good eater. Or omg he talks already at X age and why not mine is going to be a losing battle.

As long as your kid is healthy and happy, that’s all it matters!

Switching topic a bit. What do you make for your kids to eat? We do:

Steamed ground pork with rice (hide veggies in there)
Mac and cheese (also good for hiding veggies)
Udon in soup or any other type of asian noodles
Cold soba with chicken
Grilled cheese sandwich
Pasta with red sauce
Sushi


Share some ideas!

We have no problems with veggies. We have a problem with getting him to eat meat and protein. He likes eating plain boil choy sum.............

He also loooooves carbs.

The only reliable way for us to get him to eat meat right now is feed him cha siu bao, grandma's dumplings, or steamed fish.
Other protein we try to sneak in is egg yolk in oatmeal and some eggs in fried rice.

My 2 year old loves carbs especially in the form of noodles, pasta, and potatoes. She however is no fan of vegetables - at least at home. The other night she picked out (or spit out) all the zucchini out of her chicken and rice. I've tried chicken meatballs with spinach mixed in and she doesn't go for it - same with beef meatballs with carrots in it. It's been a real struggle on that front.

OTOH, she generally likes fruit a lot - she will eat almost an entire banana on her own at any time, same with mangos. She's big on most berries too.

Eggs are a big winner particularly in boiled form - she'll wolf a whole egg down seemingly in seconds.

I told her to put her phone down but it's so hard. Any tips?
When you guys bang, start comparing her to other girls you've slept with. I'm sure it'll go over real well lol

for my youngest ones i would make myself a stuffed mini pita/ sandwich etc. with veggies and meat and cheese and some sauce like ranch. (usually veggies or meat they wouldn't eat). put it in a panini press and then eat it in front of them and give them a bite. then ask them if they want one too.
they always said yes because they felt like they were eating "adult food".
now they're 7 and they tell me what they want in them.

also a good rule of thumb i was taught is to feed them meals that are the size of the fist (because according to the doctor their stomachs are the size of their fists). I never used to believe this until one day i guess they were over stuffed and they puked out like 2 lbs of food. after that i fed them smaller meals and they tended to eat alot more of different veggies and meats. No more issues with throwing up.

Their fist size?? That’s tiny... it would be like 4 bites for my 3 year old.

Good idea on the pita. We did tacos this week.

another trick I'd do is keep them happy meal boxes and make homemade fries and another healthy dish, put it inside call them to eat tell them I got them a happy meal and watch em go to town!

Just to be clear it's fist sized when empty. It will stretch for more food but the compression of the stretching with cause throwing up.

We fed ours homemade congee with finely ground chicken. Bland af but the little buggers loved it. Literally chicken paste.
FYI Once the kids go solid foods the smell and consistency of their poops become adult-like :shrug:
They never liked the baby food from the stores. Except the one that came in a foil pack with a plastic tip I forgot what it's called. They looked like Capri sun's with a valve.

Any mushy food will do like ripe bananas. I find all the baby food at Superstore to work just fine especially when they are starting. They're not really "eating" at this point, you're just trying to get them comfortable with the texture and basic tastes of things.

My kid hated the vegetable ones - didn't like carrots or peas. Was a fan of most of the fruit ones and anything that had protein in them (that comes later).

Look up ‘baby led weening’. It’s a lot of work but he’s had over 100 foods before he turned 1 and isn’t picky at all. Will literally eat anything.

My boy turned 1 on Saturday. Just had my parents over and did a nice bbq. Was quiet and enjoyable and just got to spend time with him.

When your kid starts solid, my mind was always blown when they put out logs as big as their forearms.
If I was an adult with poops as thick as my forearms I'd cry too.

My daughter’s poop is bigger than kinder surprise and hard as a rock. Poor girl.

Doctor said to give her lots of water to soften it.

We find prune pouches and pear pouches help with the poop. The prune is super effective.

You can also steam/cook pears yourself.

Prunes, pears and apples. Applesauce comes in loads of flavours if they don't like the plain kind and it works wonders.

It works on adults too so be careful if you eat one and then decide to finish off the one your kid half ate
