We continue to be amazed by what a wide variety of foods River likes to eat. She doesn’t always eat large amounts; she’s still an enthusiastic little nurser and gets a lot of nutrition from breastmilk. But she is happy to eat a surprising selection of solid foods as well. Broccoli, carrots, and peppers are favorites, as well as fried rice, Thai coconut milk curry, veggie and bean soups, whole grain bread, squash, tofu, blueberries, and tangerines. The other day I looked over at her and saw this:
She had easily consumed almost all of the lentils, veggies, and brown rice on her tray and was busy gnawing on part of a very strongly flavored blackstrap gingersnap. Her table manners may not be the best yet (hey, what do you expect, she can’t even use a spoon yet!), but she has quite a sophisticated palate for an 11-month-old.
