The Fudgelet has finally been getting better about eating more foods we eat. It’s still tricky since he only has the 4 front teeth, but I have been making dishes to provide him with new options each week. This installment of Fudgelet Food will let you know about our biggest success…
Before the Fudgelet was even eating solid food, I heard of making yogurt melts. A mom had shared a Pinterest picture where someone piped out small bits of flavored yogurt and froze them for her baby. I attempted it once he started eating food, but he did not care for yogurt at all, and I was not going to waste my time with the piping. I didn’t want to waste the yogurt mixture I had made, though, so I ended up filling some silicone molds with it. Lo and behold, a few months later he loves them, especially the ones from the Lego people mold I have. So, I am sharing what worked for me and how you can alter it for your own taste buds.
I haven’t written about the Fudgelet’s food for awhile. It doesn’t mean I haven’t been making him food, but I have just been lazy about sharing it on here–sorry! He has been getting a whole variety, with different meats, vegetables, fruits, and snacks from the store. I started him on some store food because 1) it was easy finger food to give him practice picking up and chewing (especially before he had a tooth) and 2) I knew that when we visited Maryland I would want to just buy store food and give it to keep things easy. Eventually he will be doing regular table food, but since he is not ready yet, we wanted to make sure he would eat the store purees, and not just Mommy’s. 🙂
I guess Wednesdays could have a “WFAWs” (What Fudgelet Ate Wednesdays) series? As the Fudgelet neared his 6 month mark, we started him on solid food. Today’s post I will share his first foods and first reactions. It’s been fun for all of us, although also a learning curve for everyone.
