Food fight!

Posted on: January 19, 2012

Little M has been eating rice cereal for about two weeks now.

She’s getting better at taking it, but she’s also getting messier too.

Everyday, it’s a battle to get her to eat.  It’s either she doesn’t want to be confined to her highchair, or she’d rather suck her thumb, or she wants to hold the spoon herself, or all of the above.  Some days are easier than others.  It’s literally a food fight, in a cute “baby” way.

After every meal, we end up with rice cereal literally all over her face, on her hands, and all over my hands.. it’s not pretty.

Sometimes we have to put one of her singing toys in front of her so she can pay attention.  Other times, I have to be the one to sing the songs that her little singing toys sing so she can pay attention.  Either way, singing is almost always definitely involved in her “eating” process.

But.. I have to say.. watching her eat her rice cereal is pretty cute, when she wants to eat.  She opens her mouth wide and then she “chews” on her cereal before she swallows it.  It’s like she’s a little person.  It’s too much for me to handle.

Did you have any activities to get your little one to eat (and pay attention)?
