Elyse ate a few pieces of diced chicken tonight! We have been trying for at least 2 mos I think. This past weekend, she started eating a little bit of scrambled egg on only the 3rd introduction! We have been trying so hard to get her to eat some kind of protein consistently, hopefully this won't go the way of the chickpeas :) (She will eat cheese any day though!) My little princess is quite changeable....she will eat something for a couple days and then stop again, so I hope hope hope this will stick :) BTW, i have a 2 page feeding article that may help some of you with resistant eaters from one of my SLP magazines....I will try to find it online if anyone is interested! I have been following the ideas with some success.
Check with your
doctor first!
