Blogtoberfest – Day 11


Bastian is a truly fussy eater, I know a lot of people say that there is no such thing as a fussy eater and there are ways of making a child eat vegetables, such as hiding them in other things he will eat. But when the list of healthy things he will eat is vegemite sandwiches, toasted cheese sandwiches, pork or chicken sausages, yoghurt, apples, strawberries & bananas then it is hard to hide other things with them.

So you can imagine my surprise when were out at a 4 year old birthday on Sunday and he polished off all of the grapes that were on the cheese plate and then later on in the day he took a huge slice of watermelon and proceeded to eat 90% of it, only stopping after he accidently takes a bit out of the green rind which he didn’t like one bit.

Then to further impress us last night he sat down to a dinner of chicken schnitzel and a few slices of carrot, mash potato and a piece of asparagus, assuming as normal he will take one look, maybe eat a piece of chicken and push the plate away, only to have him eat all the asparagus and carrot and take extra carrot of daddy’s plate.

Looks like all our recent talks with him about how he is 3 and a big boy now not a baby might be working.
