I am so very proud of Raegan's eating habits. One of the things that I was very determined to do was make sure that I introduce her to a variety of healthy foods as a baby so that hopefully she would not be a picky eater. Zane is actually a pretty good eater. This is very surprising, because Luke is horribly picky and when Zane lived with his mom when he was very little he ate McDonalds almost every day. But by some miracle of God Zane eats most fruits and vegetables. He really doesn't like most ethnic foods though - Taco Bell and spaghetti are about as ethnic as he gets. I love just about any kind of ethnic food there is, so I really wanted to introduce Raegan to a lot of things early so that she would hopefully feel the same way I do. I've also read that the flavors of what you eat while you nurse pass to your baby, so I hoped that she was getting a taste of the goodness from the get-go.
Here's a list of foods that Raegan eats well. I put a star by the foods that she L-O-V-E-S.
-Fresh Canteloupe *
-Black Beans *
-Turkey and Chicken (not a huge fan of beef so far)
-Water (she loves drinking water, which is great in this summer heat)
I flavor a lot of foods with garlic and/or onion and she really seems to like those flavors too. So far the only foods I've tried with her that she doesn't like are blueberries, beef, and any kind of cereal, no matter what texture I make it. Not too worried about that one though - she likes most fruits and vegetables, and that's the important thing! Hopefully she will like cow's milk more than I do....
