When the Genius was a baby, she had some pretty serious feeding issues. She was unable to eat even baby food til she was close to two years old. We had her in therapy for months to help her be able to eat. Because of that it seemed like we got both the girls off to a rough start on eating foods. Now we are trying to make up for that and help them learn to like a variety of foods. The Genius actually likes some healthy foods (grapes and spinach salad without dressing are one of her favs). The Hippie could live on wheat bread, sugar and crackers. We have started some new dinner rules at our house. The girls were not thrilled with these new rules, but they have accepted them and our dinner time is going MUCH smoother now. The other night we had grilled chicken, bacon wrapped asparagus, cauliflower mashed "potatoes" and spinach salads for dinner. The Genius actually liked the dinner! She asked for seconds on her asparagus. The Hippie was not very thrilled and hardly ate any of it. We asked her if she understood these new rules. She said, "Yeah, it's cause you want us to eat new and yucky foods." Kids!
