I tried to be the good mom and make homeade baby food, my kid wouldn't eat it if it wasn't in the jar. I tried to stick to the healthy list and for a little while my child did eat whole grains and hummus, my husband and I aren't health freaks but we always buy good quality foods and eat well balanced family dinners.
My kid will only eat hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, rarely yogurt, gold fish, peas and corn and if we try to get him to try something new he induces his own vomit. He will indeed go hungry longer than its healthy to if given a healthy choice or no choice. For a while he would eat meat balls (not pasta or pizza) so I woke up at 6 am to make them and he told me he didn't like them any more.
Anyhow over the past several months people have told me all sorts of things and pointing out so and so's kid who eats tofu and granola and I really do feel badly every time I put chicken fingers and alphabet fries and peas on the plate but I can't let the kid starve. I have had him cook healthy foods with me, pick things out on the grocery store.
I would love some constructive ideas and to see if anyone else feels like they have the bad mommy stamp on their forehead for their child's eating habits
