In general, Belle eats what we eat (or refuses to eat what we eat.) And some dishes I post are more toddler-friendly. She really enjoyed the carrot salad the other day and the rasam (mind you, as an Indian baby, she eats spicy food.) But, sometimes for her lunch, I get excited about making her lunch baby pretty. This usually coincides with one of her refusing-to-eat phases. Or sometimes with her, I will only eat cheese and nothing else phases. While it is clearly a petty form of bribery to gussy up the food for her, it also fills my need to craft and beautify; so win-win I say.
The other day, I cut her omelet into animal shapes, including a fish and then accompanied it with a variety of vegetable options. Finally there were tiny fava bean hummus sandwiches (shown here opened up.)
What did she eat? First the chickpeas and egg, then the bell pepper and carrots, finally toast. But, the corn ended up going to the dogs.
