Diary Of A Picky Eater
Day Four: Monday
Because we were late for preschool, Luca had 1/2 bagel (buttered) and 3 gulps of milk before we dashed out.
(at preschool) 4 pretzels, 1/4 cup apple juice.
(in the park) 1 1/2 slices beef bologna (the birds got the bread), 1 banana, 1 oatmeal cookie.
She refused carrot sticks but accepted 3 dried apricots.
The meal began with Luca's wails when we switched off her video because it was time to eat. After a short, sob-filled time-out, she returned to the table as if nothing had happened. And in fact, she was a delightful dinner companion, pausing between bites of chicken cutlet (about 3 ounces) and cheese tortellini (4) to blow kisses, sing songs, and talk to the flowers in the centerpiece. Happy as she was, she wouldn't touch her spinach and tomato salad.
1/2 an apple, 1/2 cup milk.
