Everything i could lentil soup mashed potatoes. <hes> <hes> you know any kind of protein. She was such a great eater and then all of a sudden that are like three three and a half. She decided she did not like fruit. She'll never eat fruit again for taste funky to her and at some point you do have to realize that kids are themselves and they you know they have to be allowed to develop their own tastes. They have to be allowed to assert themselves in certain ways but at the same time i am as a concerned parent and someone who knows the value of healthy eating for every part of growth and development you wanna make sure they're getting a balance.
