Not So Picky Eater

One thing about Ethan is it’s very easy to feed him. Just get him chicken rice or noodles and he’s good. He loves spaghetti bolognese and will order that most of the time when we dined out. It’s either that or noodle soup lah. It’s easy to feed him BUT he only eats the same old thing every time.

My spaghetti boy..

Kids eating spaghetti

And now there are TWO!

Ayden is following his big bro’s footsteps by eating spaghetti and noodle soup or chicken rice when dining out. BUT unlike Ethan, Ayden is more adventurous. He goes beyond noodles and rice. He’ll try almost anything. When Ethan was Ayden’s age, he was already quite picky but Ayden is not. He’ll want to eat everything! Oh, Ethan doesn’t self feed until much later (coz first child, pampered mah) but Ayden is such a pro at that. 

I never liked my kids to eat lollipop or drink sodas as those have zero nutrition for them. Ethan never eat those until he was 5 or something but this Ayden…

Ayden first time eating lollipop

Only 21 months old and already eating lollipop and drinking sodas. 

He insisted to have that lollipop and the Daddy gave in so that was his first time eating lollipop >_<

Ayden eating lollipop

Aiyer kenot tahan see his apek face here!

The lollipop was strawberry flavour. I don’t know he was grimacing over the sourness or happy to eat empty calories but I guess it is the later as he finished the entire thing -.-

Ayden eating ayam goreng

He also loves to eat fried chicken drumstick and will curi mine when I’m having my lunch or dinner.

Ayden always eats first (in his high chair) and then gets down to play while I eat but these days, he’ll climb onto my chair to steal my chicken!

Oh well, it’s better to have a child with a good appetite than to worry over a picky eater isn’t it? *touch wood, don’t jinx*

    Those not picky about food have the tendency to grow fat, like me. The picky ones stay as thin as a rake, like you. Hmmmm…glad to see your boys are (still?) all right. Maybe they are blessed with good genes.

    Cham lah, he discovered to joys of having junk food at such an early age. Hope he doesn’t get attached to them!

    Hahaha, Ayden looks so thamjiak eating that lollipop. How come he knows that lollipop can be eaten? He has seen other children eating them?

    Yes, better a not picky eater than picky eater.

    Of course, I love child with good appetite. My Sam is on and off, sometimes her stomach like black hole, never full and sometimes makan sikit saja cakap kenyang >_<
