In his continuing efforts to prove that he is indeed smarter than both his mommy and his daddy, AB has adopted a healthful diet. His favorite food: vegetables (unless there are some fresh berries lying around). He loves broccoli and green beans, and will even eat veggies that neither NSAH nor I care for very much, like zucchini and squash. (I do try to set a good example when we're eating out, and will eat those two veggies if they come mixed in a side dish.)
He also--for some reason unknown to us--does not like cheese. Whereas I could eat cheese melted over anything, the only cheese he likes is grated parmesan liberally shaken over his pasta with red sauce. He does get his dairy, though. He loves to drink milk, and will share my yogurt on occasion.
Tonight, NSAH and I ordered pizza. AB does not like pizza. Instead of trying to force him to eat something unhealthful
that he does not like, I made an exception to my "Everyone eats the same thing at dinnertime" rule. I offered to make him something else. His final choice, which he helped me make: a single slice of smoked turkey, fresh spinach, shredded carrots and hummus on a whole wheat wrap. Little showoff.
