Onward and forward in my quest to ensure Sweet Pea and Little Man are properly introduced to a wide range of healthy foods. Last week the twins tried zucchini:
(Yes, Sweet Pea is wearing a Christmas bib. Sue me.)
As usual, Little Man liked it and Sweet Pea didn't. Little Man is very much like CC was at this age: he likes everything and greets each spoonful with a wide open mouth. Sweet Pea is much different, usually clamping her mouth shut at the sight of something new on a spoon, or (if I trick her into opening her mouth), keeping her mouth open until all the food falls back out. Sigh.
They also tried pears:
Little Man could have eaten the entire pear; I had to cut him off so Sweet Pea could try a little. She maybe liked it. She ate two or three spoonfuls before refusing any more. That's a better reception than she normally gives something new, so maybe she's a pear fan. Little Man didn't mind: he ate all of hers, too!
