Picky Fellow

Jack and I thought that getting kids to eat everything was a cinch, because Francis always did. Then came his brother! Turns out that we make very choosy eaters, too.

Felix’s first food was soft ice cream. He was a year old and had rejected everything but breastmilk. I was a stick and happy he would eat anything, no matter what it was.

He likes meat; fennel, cucumber, carrots and chard stems; and most starches. He likes bananas with cinnamon, dried apples, and raisins. He doesn’t like many candies, and he loves to build.
