I took more photos than usual on this day because that head band looked so darn cute on her! Plus, she’s now a year old (wow!!!) and I find myself just watching in aww.
Her plate contained apricot, dragon fruit, strawberries, grapes, salad (lettuce, onion, black sliced olives, ground flax sprinkled on top and pink hummus). You’d be really surprised at what a child can consume without teeth. They have strong gums (ever been bitten by a gummy child?), and I believe our daughter breaks food down with her saliva by sucking on it before chewing. She definitely does that with apple slices quite frequently.
For this plate, she chewed the lettuce and spit it out, then ate small portions of everything else. Normally she wouldn’t finish a plate this big, plus we nurse before she has solids. But I like to offer a variety, and lots of it. They’re more likely to try new things voluntarily this way (our kids at least).
