  • She's bein feed table foods. She eats mashed potatoes, corn on and off the cob, grits, oatmeal, fries, chicken nuggets, this she eats most of the time. (sometimes), pancakes and bacon. this is about all she eats.

  • offer her some fruit my children enjoy bananas (I cut them in circles) watermelon, oranges, strawberries and apples. My kids also love to dip their fruit in yogurt and peanut butter.  Have you tried rice, cheese?
