Food Glorious Food

The wee man eats everything, even things that aren't technically food, like woodlice and bits of stuff off the floor. As I left to go out swimming tonight he was sitting on The Chancellor's knee devouring her Bombay mix, this is pretty impressive as I don't even like Bombay mix. The other day I was eating a pot of olive and mushroom anti pasti, the wee man promptly walked over and helped himself to both the olives and mushrooms (as you can see from the picture). He didn't bat an eyelid at the strong olive taste and there was a point in time where I thought he didn't have taste buds that functioned properly.

His need to eat everything you're eating makes life quite tricky as your food doesn't tend to get to go in your mouth and there are things we as adults eat that aren't really suitable for him.The wee man doesn't really care though and I've become pretty relaxed even giving the odd paprika max crisp for example. I don't blame him for his love of these are they are by far the best crisp on the planet, even if my local shop charges 85p a packet.

Apart from his love of bad stuff he eats very well, with plenty of fish, veg and fruit in his diet. Today at the our regular Tuesday club at the Baltic he ate as much of my cooked breakfast as I did, including black pudding. I still think he can't taste things. It has made life quite easy for us as we haven't had to battle with him and I always say it's the only real success we've had with him, apart from keeping him alive. Whether or not he'll still be like this later on is anyone's guess probably not but for the time being it's anything goes.

  1. Lily used to be the same. She ate absolutely everything, and we thought we were on to a winner, with our toddler who had such a wonderful palate. Pah, she's 2 1/2 now and we can barely get her to eat even a third of what she used to.
    Make the most of it. Wee man will no doubt be spitting out those olives in a very short time!
