Flavour of The Day with Noora

A Vegetarian Baby

All Yousef is accepting to eat are fruits and veggies. I have to hide from him when I open the fridge because he starts crying for an apple or tomato. In normal conditions, it would be great to have a baby who loves healthy snacks. But, what is worrying me is that apples and tomatoes are all he eats all day.

If I am lucky (which is very rare), he will have scrambled eggs for breakfast OR dinner and a maximum of 3-4 table spoons of whatever I cook for lunch and that is it. This has been going on for more than a month now and it's so frustrating!

His paediatrician is telling me that it is not a big deal and that he will grow out of it but I can't help but worry.

Has anyone gone through this with their baby? Help!

Hi Noora this is very normal, this age they start moving and exploring they don't want to sit and eat. You r right, you are lucky he likes veggies and fruits better than sweets. I am sure this will pass, kids are amazing with all the phases they go through! Worrying us all the way :)
