Because Aki has mood swings when it comes to eating, I have become more conscious of what I feed him. When I go to the grocery, I review the labels before putting an item on my basket. Because of this new habit, I have learned that pancakes, Hanzel sandwiches and wafers, do not have anything significant to offer aside from calories.
I got the idea to introducing peanut butter from Faye‘s post. Not only is peanut butter yummy, it is good source of protein.
After reviewing the labels of different brands, I chose Tobi Creamy Peanut Butter Spread
because it has 0% sodium.
One serving or two tablespoons have 8 grams of proteins. That is half of the daily protein needs of toddlers 2-3 years old.
Aki ate about 3 tablespoons. Yes!!!
A sure sign that a picky eater likes his food – plate licking. To set the records straight, I did not teach him that nor do I encourage him to do that. For memories’ sake, I just had to take a picture.
PS: Spoonfuls of peanut butter is a choking hazard. Feed only in super small portions. Better yet, spread it on bread or fruits.
