Does your one-year-old like veggies?

Mine does, and I'm wondering whether I've hit the jackpot, or whether picky-eater-ness happens later. His favorite food now is spinach and potatoes, rice and lentils, and pureed carrots, sweet potatoes, and turkey. Crossing my fingers that this will last!

  • At one, my son loved his veggies, and still does going on 4. But "picky-eater-ness" still comes later...I found that for my son, as long as I serve them with macaroni and cheese or other food he loves, he'll eat his veggies (mostly). Don't worry, you'll still be able to experience the joy of it because the taste buds will mature, the textures will change, and sometimes they just don't want to eat something.

  • Mine eats just about everything! His favorite is green beans. He'll eat those BEFORE he eats his chicken nuggets! I'm praying he stays like this!
