who stole their taste buds?

After years of a pretty bland, probably typical American toddler diet, my kids are beginning to surprise me. Little e. still prefers the comforting tastes of plain old cheddar cheese, but she did eat some of her dad’s sautéed rainbow chard today and downed all of the black beans that she could find on the table.

Her big brother, not to be outdone, polished off his brown rice with the help of a little honey and then demanded to eat “the good cheese” being the stravecchio and the Irish cheddar.

And while I’m happy that they are willing to slightly push the food envelope, all of this has me saying, “Hands off my plate, kids!”
