I am having a very serious mommy moment. My kids don't eat and it's been going on for so long. You have to understand the severity of this...you see I am French Canadian and I take food seriously - I dream about it, plan around it and I love to eat and I love to cook. I had a fantasy about motherhood that involved me standing in the kitchen in my apron (ok - it's a chic DwellStudio apron) stirring simmering pots of delicious home cooked local organic food with my kids smiling on - their small hands holding out plates in anticipation of my wonderful meal. They don't want anything.....There is no hiding veggies under spaghetti or any of those tricks...They are on to me and that just does not fly at our house.
My son will eat the following and only the following -
pizza - but if there is even a flake of dried oregano forget it.
waffles - but only Van's frozen and nothing else. Fresh waffles are apparently not waffles.
Grilled cheese with American cheese
That is it! Where am I going to hide the zucchini?
I will come clean and tell you that up until now I have been almost force feeding him vegetable baby food - because he seems to tolerate the consistency - but he's two and a half!
We are all going to Europe next week and I am terrified of being away from my safety stock of food.
If you have tips, recipes or anything to help! Let me know. I will do anything....
