This seemed like fun, and since Logan’s been eating stuff that’s starting to qualify as interesting, here we go! For reference, he’s 8 months as of July 1st. This fun project is hosted by Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life, who has a little munchkin that’s a month older than Logan.
Logan’s breakfast entailed mozzarella/cheddar cheese, cut-up cherries and broccoli florets. He was pretty enthusiastic about it at first, but he didn’t get into the cheese much. It’s a work in progress. I offer it up about twice a week.
Just to prove I definitely don’t make up his initial enthusiasm :
Lunch is usually something simple – he gets cheerios and other finger snack food, and he also had about half a pouch of this:
He loves basically all flavors of Plum Organics. They, and baby yogurt are my go-to things when he doesn’t seem in the mood for table food. He ALWAYS eats a ton of the pouches, and yogurt is probably his favorite food, ever.
We ended up going to a 4th of July event in Bellevue for a few hours and had some Red Mango frozen yogurt there. Logan ate about half my mango and strawberry toppings, but I didn’t remember to take a picture of it. I’m really quite new at this food blogging thing.
We tried something new for dinner – a turkey meatball, blueberries and finger food. It was his first time eating meatball (the husband and I had them too) and his second time eating blueberries.
He’s pretty picky about what berries he likes. He loves any and all of them in purees, but as for raw berries… he flat out denies raspberries, and this is what I’ve dubbed his blueberry face…:
That said, he does eat blueberries, and I think it’s just an initial hurdle. I’m pretty blessed that – so far – he isn’t a picky eater. *knock on wood* He’s a lot more likely yo go after finger food than the real food I offer up, but he always at least feeds himself a few bites of everything. Sometimes I hit the jackpot and find something he loves, in which case he eats the whole plate.
Happy belated July 4th – it was a beautiful end to the day over here.
