I know this sounds bad, but mealtime is definitely NOT my favorite. I wouldn't say Cole is a fussy eater, he eats what he likes, he's just not very adventurous. A lot of things get chucked on the floor. He's loving cheese noodles, grilled cheese, fresh fruit, string cheese, yogurt, baby food. I am ready to give up the baby food, but he loves it, it's good for him, so I go with it.
The one thing that's gotten him to try a few new things is the fork. I bought suction bowls for his highchair and gave him a fork and he discovered how fun it was to poke the food and feed himself. It sure beats the slop on the spoon!
