Max's Diet

These are things that Max currently likes to eat:

  • Pirate Booty
  • Nilla Wafers
  • Pizza
  • Mac n Cheese
  • Pickles
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Soy Sausage
  • Cookies
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Goldfish Crackers
  • Chips
  • Avocado
  • French Fries
  • Cheese
  • Toast
  • Bananas
  • Ice Cream
  • Salad
  • Quiche
  • Chicken Legs
  • Spaghetti
  • Popcorn
  • Steak
  • Cereal

When I look at this list, I'm shocked at how much of it's junk food. He's been a very finicky eater for quite a while now. He used to eat sweet potatos, broccoli and cream of wheat along with all kinds of healthy things. When he was a baby I would mix mangos, bananas and yogurt with wheat germ. I tried to get him to eat healthy as he became a toddler, but I was just so happy to see him consuming calories of any kind, that I didn't care that he was developing a taste for junk food. A lot of his little friends eat junk food and quite frankly I'm surprised at how often it's dished up to little minds and bodies that need real nourishment. Well, now that I've seen this on paper, I'm going to put effort back into trying to get him to eat things that are healthier for him. Me too, for that matter.
