Parents – throw those hands up in the air (and wave ’em like ya just don’t care) if you currently deal with or have ever dealt with a picky toddler who loves to give you a run for your money when it comes to actually eating something with nutritional value during the day. I can’t tell you how many times I’m left baffled and shrugging my shoulders trying to crack the super secret code to get my toddler to actually eat the food that I prepare for her and NOT solely eat graham crackers and Goldfish. The struggle is real, y’all!
I was that mom when my baby was starting solids when she was 6 months old. You know, the one who makes all of the baby food from scratch, only uses organic fruits and veggies in the purees and swears that introducing a unique array of foods to the baby while they’re young will make them develop a taste for healthy foods for the rest of their life – including the toddler years.
