...I feel like a bad mommy because some days ds doens't eat any fruits or veggies. I know he's "supposed" to get 5 a day and all, and that one tablespoon = 1 serving, but does that 5 have to all be what he actually consumes, or just what I offer (even if I know full well he won't eat it)? Erg. This is confusing.
He eats crackers, bread, pasta, rice, and dry cereals (Rice Crispies, Cheerios), and he will always eat cheese, meat, and egg yolk if it's offered. I just really want him to get in the habbit of eating enough fruits and veggies, but when I don't have any that he can or will eat, what am I supposed to do?
He often begs for something like salad that I'm eating, but if I give him something, he'll spit it out and put it on the floor.
