So moms of toddler's who have made the switch to whole milk. Does your little bundle of energy like white milk? Phoenix is not interested in it much. He prefers (like most kids I guess) chocolate and strawberry milk. I was fine with it until I saw that chocolate has 28g of sugar and strawberry has 32g! Hello! Like this kid needs anything else to get him all riled up!
So I thought about just doing one cup (I try to do 3 cups of milk a day) of chocolate or strawberry a day and white the other times. When I tried this Friday he refused to drink the white milk. I ended up giving in and squirting some chocolate syrup in it! But of course I don't want to do this every day!
The same day I was watching something on Disney Channel with a french talking dachshund. He's some kind of "snack chef", he made a smoothie using milk and yogurt and I thought "Bingo!" Who doesn't love smoothies?!
I also have recently started having trouble getting him to eat veggies and we are getting in a bit of a food rut. Breakfast is usually one of the following. Oatmeal with a jar of stage 3 fruit (easier then having to cut up a bunch of fruit) oatmeal and go-gurt, cream of wheat and apple sauce, fruit or yogurt. But if I'm feeling especially awake I'll do pancakes or waffles. Lunch is usually a Gerber micro meal. But I'm getting sick of it and he seems to be too.
So I was wooooondering if any of you mommy's had any tips for getting him to drink the white milk and any menu ideas and/or recommendations for a good baby/toddler (EASY & FAST) cookbook.
Now I know there are people reading my blog. I have a stat counter that says so. BUT for whatever reason you want to be undercover readers and ya never leave me any comments.
Show a girl some love and give me some tips ;-)
