The real reason I can't stand how Gabby eats? It's because of how Jack eats. He's a chowhound and will eat anything and everything (except white potatoes and bananas). We took him out for his birthday and he ate crab legs for lunch. He loves all fish: shrimp, crab, salmon, red snapper, cat fish. He also loves veggies: beets and spinach in his applesauce, green beans, brown beans, black beans, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes. And, he likes fruits: apples, pears, mango, pineapple, blueberries. It's amazing!
I thought for a while that if Gabby saw the praise that Jack was getting for eating so well that she'd want praise too. I don't think she cares. Our latest system is that Jack sits next to me at meals and eats off of my plate and Gabby has to have a smaller portion of what we're eating and then after she eats it, she can have PB&J, chicken nuggets, etc. If anyone has any other suggestions, please send them my way. Meal time is very frustrating at my house lately.
