Comments for Dinner with Sean

PeasDinner with Sean: 05/02/07

If Sean had his way, dinner would always be from a short list of favorites: waffles, pancakes, hot dogs, artichokes, crepes, mac' and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Sometimes we'll make something off that list for dinner to include Sean in the dinner decision making process but we can't always do it. Nor do we always want to do it.

We're trying to get Sean to eat a greater variety of things and to prevent Harriet from becoming this stubborn about food. He's pretty good about chicken and fish but forget about beef. Tonight though we had beef and sure enough it was a struggle to get him to eat. We also had baked potatoes (something he also never wants to eat), asparagus and pineapple. The whole dinner was me trying to coax him to eat.

Part of the problem too is that he gets overwhelmed by the portions he's served and there I don't blame him. Tomorrow we're going to try giving him an empty plate and I'll serve him portions of what Ian serves me rather than having Ian serve us both. I'm hoping that a few successes at eating one or two bites of something will encourage him to then ask for more of the things he does like from any given meal. We'll see...
