Me vs. Rap in the battle against unhealthy food choices4:01 PM
One of the problems I have had in raising my son is his fussiness over certain types of food. As you may have read in my previous posts, my boy has a long list of food that he will neither smell nor taste. He keeps his choices limited and he’s afraid to try out new meals. He's not much into vegetables and fruits and he wouldn't dare to eat tomato-based dishes. He can also choose to starve himself instead of him eating food he doesn't like.
|Living near a fastfood restaurant definitely doesn't help me win this battle.|
|The only time that you can get him to eat fruits is when it's served with crepe or pancakes.|
I admit I'm partly to blame in all of these because I easily gave in to what my boy wanted to eat. He didn't like sandwiches so his baon would often be sweet cookies and fruit juices in Tetra Pak because I wanted him to eat while he's in school. I didn't want him to go hungry because I know that he'll be missing out on the nutrients that he's supposed to get from food. If he doesn't like our ulam, I would fry chicken nuggets for him. Para wala nang away. I didn't want to force feed my child. What I didn't know back then was that I didn't really help him get the nutrients he needed. Akala ko noon, basta busog ok na.
|Not much of a sweet tooth but he goes gaga over donuts.|
|Limiting his soda and chips intake is still a work in progress.|
