A Day of Meals for a 1 Year Old and 3 Year Old

I admit — I had high hopes for Noelle when I started her on Baby Led Weaning, and she seemed to gobble up everything I put in front of her without a fuss.  I thought maybe, just maybe, I’d get a free pass and not have to deal with a picky eater.  Nope – baby [...]


A Comprehensive Guide to Feeding Our One Year Old

I’ve spoken here before about how lucky we are that Baby Markers is a great eater. She has very rarely turned down a meal and appreciates different flavors, textures and variety.

A Day of Meals for Drake

I have always had poor eating habits. As a child, it would take me hours to finish my meal and eating was such a chore. Even as an adult I don’t eat regularly and am quite picky about a lot of foods. It’s hard to try to engender good eating habits in my children, despite [...]
