What I've tasted

It has been a month plus since I started solids. Mummy's running out of ideas on what to prepare for my meals. Rice cereal is now an occasional food, once or twice a week. These are what my little taste bud has tried so far:
  • Apple
  • Banana
  • Pear
  • Papaya
  • Potato
  • Sweet potato (Yellow ones are more tasty)
  • Pumpkin
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower &
  • Water (Yes... only tried it when I started weaning)

Mummy would introduce each food few days apart. This helps to single out the culprit if allergy occurs. Though I think the chances are low, we play safe. Moreover, there isn't much food I can try at my tender age.

Along the days, mummy would try to mix and match the ingredients. She searched online for ideas and pieced them here:

  1. Pear + Apple (Steam and blend)
  2. Banana + Rice cereal + Milk
  3. Potato + Carrot
  4. Broccoli + Cauliflower
  5. Sweet Potato + carrot
  6. papaya + Milk

These are some 'equations' that Mummy can recall on how she prepares my meals. She would adjust the pureed food with milk or rice cereal to make it comfortable for me. Usually, Mummy would prepare my food in the night and refrigerate it. Next day, Grandma will warm it up for my little tummy. The refrigerated food must be consumed within 24hrs. For her easy preparation, my lunch and dinner are always the same... so how should I respond?

Meal time again? Boring...

Well, as my age catches up, I'll get to try more food. For now, milk is still my primary food, I'll work for it.
