We are incredibly blessed that Lil’ CB is a great eater and always has been. Our little foodie is the kind of eater that will gladly try anything and often try it before you tell him what it is. His lists of favorite foods boasts delicacies like mussels, sushi, shrimp, anchovies, meats of all cuts, and Kalamata olives, and he’s never met a cheese he didn’t like. My mom always shakes her head in disbelief when she watches Lil’ CB eat and usually mutters something like, “You don’t even know…” because it is a well-known fact in our circles that I was a HORRIBLE eater as a child. It wasn’t so much that I was picky; it was more like I haaaated eating. Things could not be more different for our little Cowboy, and boy am I grateful!
Our little foodie at work: shoveling mussels in garlic sauce down his mouth; hoarding tuna rolls; trying pig’s feet and blood sausage.
We can hardly take credit for creating this adventurous eater, though. Rather, I really feel like the reason why Lil’ CB eats so well and eats nearly anything is because when his foster mother really started him on solids, he just ate smaller, perhaps more watered-down versions of what the adults in the house were eating. It was probably very similar to Baby Led Weaning, maybe with kimchi and seaweed instead of cucumbers and avocado.
