Quoting Colt's mommy:" I usually give LO a V8 juice (low sodium) a few times a week for lunch and for dinner I usually always ... [snip!] ... I just have to tell him that he needs to eat at least x amount then he can get down and play and he usually complies."
Yes, Lily must eat veggies. I do not eat meat and offered meat to her and she loves it, but if she hated it I wouldn't force it. Veggies I wont budge on though.
She must TRY everything I give her... and if she has 2 or 3 bites and doesnt like it then thats fine she doesnt have to eat it. She has to try. Lily doesnt like mushrooms in all foods but likes them made different ways so if she does dislike a food I will offer it made a different way. Like broccoli... and then broccoli tempura or it steamed. If she still doesnt like it then she doesnt have to eat it. She has to try though.
