My toddler is a grazer when it comes to eating. She may not eat a full meal but will snack through out the day. That is something with time I would like to change, but for now I am okay with it. For the most part she is not picky when it comes to eating. If we are out & about & decide to get something to eat she will ALWAYS ask for chicken & fries.

At home since she likes to nibble throughout the day I try to NOT feed her much junk. She will have a cookie, chips, or gummies sometimes though. I do not want to keep her from all the yummy stuff all together. For breakfast she will have oatmeal, toast, or fruit. Lunch & dinner is whatever we are eating. She loves salads. So when I am on a salad kicks, we will both have salads for lunch! For her in between snacks she is obsessed with blueberries, grapes, pretzels & cucumbers.

When it comes drinks, at home all she drinks is milk (regular & coconut) & water. She may have a sip of daddy's tea or sprite if we are eating out. Or maybe an apple juice when we go to Starbucks.

For the most part, I think she is a good eater. So no complaints. 




What does your child eat on the regular? Is he/she a picky eater?

I hope to see you mamas next week! The topic will be - Choosing the Size of Your Family. How did you decide how many children is right for your family and why?

  1. She sounds a lot like my 3 year old. It's 1:30 pm, and he hasn't had a meal today. He had many, many snacks: a boiled egg, cheese, an apple, a handful of pretzels, and a spoonful of peanut butter. And about 3 cups of milk. I think he's having a growth spurt.

  3. Sounds like you have a great eater....grazing is ok in my book...tiny tummies can only hold so much!

  4. My daughter is getting really picky lately. Some days it's a challenge and other days she never stops eating! lol!

  5. We are really lucky in that we do not have a picky eater. My 3 year old eats just about whatever we eat. Some days she chooses not to eat something in particular, but usually it's because she's feeling stubborn about something else. Like not wanting to stop playing and come to the dinner table! Given enough time, she will eventually eat what is on her plate. A little bribery never hurts either ;o)

  6. You're doing well :D I have a grazer as well-- sometimes I need to tone down the snacks so he'll actually be hungry enough to try something new, though :) When did your daughter start liking salads?

  7. I think it's great that she's not too picky and actually grazing isn't bad so long as she keeps eating. It sounds to me like you're doing a great job mama!

  11. She has been eating salads with me for at least 6 months. Off and on, like I said whenever I am on my salad kicks.

  12. Sounds like my daughter. I have made the mistake of giving her snacks in a bowl and letting her sit on the couch if she is wanting to watch cartoons. She is so messy! But its like a must do thing now! :P

  17. My little guy is a snacker, too, so I try not to be too worried when he's not hungry for a huge meal!

  18. Grazing is actually the more healthy way to eat as an adult so she is getting a good start! Sounds like she loves what mama loves!

  22. My little one grazes throughout the day too! How on earth did you get yours to eat salads though??

    ReplyDelete
  23. I was eating them at lunch all the time, & occasionally when we would go out to eat. She just started throwing a fit for some. So now she gets her own bowl. Usually romaine lettuce or spinach leaves. & of course cheese & ranch! HA.

  24. Grazing happens 24/5. When the weekend hits, this lady LOVES her breakfast food. It's like she's grazing during the week so she can enjoy a long, leisurely breakfast on Saturday morning. This kid! :) At least she's got the right idea, eh?

  25. Ha! Breakfast is the most important meal right!?
