Make Sure That Your Kids Get Proper Nutrition and Vitamins…Without a Fight
We all face different challenges with our kids, and if you have more than one child, you know that every child is different. We did just about the same thing in regards to feeding the boys with our older two, and somehow, D is the better eater. He will try almost anything once, loves broccoli, milk, salmon, and kefir, and I feel like he is getting the nutrition and vitamins that his body needs to grow healthy and strong. The Captain, on the other hand, is not likely to try new things, turns up his nose at food often, and would live off of bread and sweets if we let him. I do not want to label him as "picky," but he is definitely a food snubber.
What happened and why are they so different? I am not sure, so I cannot tell you, in all honesty! We served them both pureed baby foods, both were breastfed and formula fed, both had a sensitivity to milk that they have seemed to grow out of, and they turned out completely different. (While the verdict is still out with Baby Brother, I tried a different approach with him, baby-led weaning, to try to avoid the food snubbing as his oldest brother does. I'll fill you in when he's 5. ha!)
