He Finally Ate A Vegetable!

Some call it a starch but I call it a vegetable! A couple of days ago MJ ate some sweet potato! MJ has always been extremely finicky about vegetables.   He doesn’t even want me to have them on his plate next to the other foods he eats.  I try to introduce different foods but if the texture and taste are different or not to his liking, he protests and takes it off of his plate.  For this reason I always have to make sure he takes his vitamins etc.  a few days ago I decided to try again with him.  When he was a baby he LOVED the sweet potato baby food and I thought that would continue as he got older, but it hasn’t! I put a baked potato in the oven for a little over an hour.   I took it out, mashed it up, and added a little butter and a dash of brown sugar.  I took a plate of it to MJ at the dinner table.  I said “MJ look at this sweet potato! It’s just like the sweet potato pie that I bake.  Do you want to try some? Its delicious!”  To my surprise he said yes! I gave him one spoonful and asked him if he wanted more.   He said YES! I scooped some on his plate and ran to get my phone to take a pic of him eating it.  Well he ate it so fast that I didn’t get a chance to take a pic! I’m thrilled that he finally tried it and I will most definitely continue to make it for him.  Maybe he has turned a corner and is willing to try more foods. I’m going to continue to try and introduce more veggies into his diet.

      1. They are really good for you too. Tons of fiber, Vitamin B6 and Potassium, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Manganese. Of course, that is before you load them with brown sugar and butter. lol. I might have to make some. Right now.
