“They only want to eat cheese!”

    I said cheese because I’ve had a lot of experience with it.  I feel like all kids are obsessed with cheese!  Mac & cheese, cheese doodles, cheese sticks, cheez-its, or just slices of cheese.  Cheese is fine, but I feel like too much of it can be unhealthy.  I’ve also found that too much of cheese also destroys their pallet, causing them to be picky eaters.

It’s not only cheese.  It’s salty foods as well: TV dinners, frozen pizza, chicken nuggets, and cold cuts.  Excuse me for being so blunt, but it’s all crap.  This crap, or fast food, can cause constipation due to the lack of water and fiber in the diet (fact courtesy of kidshealth.org).  By the way, fast food can be bought at the supermarket; it doesn’t have to come from a drive-thru.

If the child you are feeding knows nothing else besides the foods presented here then you may feel as if you have a real problem on your hands.  However, I have compiled a list of foods that children may not say no to:

Pork tenderloin

Scrambled Eggs (eggs are a great meat-alternative)

Tuna Fish

Oatmeal with a sprinkle of nutmeg

Bowl of fruit

Grilled Chicken with steamed carrots

There are more foods to be listed..Send suggestions to theniftynanny@gmail.com or TWITTER @theniftynanny
