Do you have a PICKY EATER??? I sure do!
Check out the article at http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/491034 to read about supertasters and picky eaters. I didn’t realize 50% of children ages 18-23 months were considered picky eaters. That percentage seems high to me. I guess I am lucky in that I have one pipsqueak that is NOT a picky eater and one pipsqueak that IS a picky eater….hey that’s 50/50 odds, humph maybe these specialists do know a thing or two. It was never so apparent as last night at dinner when one of my children had licked the plate clean (rib roast, green beans, bread ) and gotten seconds and thirds on the beans and the other child only ate the bread. All I could think was “how nutritious, bread for dinner” but he continues to grow like a weed and is on track on the growth and weight charts. My picky eater is also the child with the hearing issues and the childhood apraxia of speech issues. Connection???? Hmmmmm maybe so. We are scheduled for getting our second set of tubes AND having our adnoids out next week. Maybe that will help the appetite if he can smell better. One can only hope! Now only 14 more attempts to serve green beans before he’ll eat them!
