So . . . I've been concerned for a while about my 14-month-old, Quinn, who has virtually given up eating. He does okay with toddler snacks like arrowroot cookies and puffed-wheat apple wheels, but has been refusing his cereal and baby food. He's still quite chubby and healthy and active, which prompts my husband to say, "He must be doing okay", but his solid waste has become VERY solid and dry, and nearly white. Any mom knows that one of the first places bad health signs turn up is in the diaper. Today, we took him out to lunch with us, and he once again turned down the food I brought for him. His daddy idly offered him a small piece of bread from his sandwich roll, and Quinn happily grabbed it, stuffed it in his mouth, and it was gone. I offered him a small piece of grilled chicken from my sandwich, and same thing. Turns out that what he doesn't want is food someone else is feeding him. He wants to feed himself. So now I'm trying to decide what I can get for a 14-month-old with not a lot of teeth to feed himself without too much horrendous mess. We already do peanut butter sandwiches on thin sandwich rounds, and grilled cheese would work, too. Apple and banana slices aren't going over too well, but strawberry slices are good. We'll try some other fruits and veggies as they come in season. Waffles cut into squares - no syrup, please - do okay. Sweet potato fries, baked in the oven. Maybe some pieces of omelet? This is the first kid I've had who developed this particular eating quirk. Nicky always ate everything in sight, and Sarah went through a phase where she would do nothing but drink milk for two days, then eat everything that didn't run away on the third day. Anyone got any other suggestions for toddler finger foods?
