Opposites


While Chloe and Pearl have many things in common, there are so many ways these girls are drastically different. Food preferences is one way these girls part ways. Chloe has the most unusual tastes I have ever witnessed. She only eats from three food groups, dairy, carbs and condiments. Yes to Chloe, condiments are a main entree. Give her a knife and a pile of butter and she has a meal. It doesn't have to be butter. It could be sour cream, cream cheese, ketchup or ranch dressing. The only fruit she will eat is a raisin and the only vegetable she will eat is an olive. Is that a vegetable? She also loves peanuts and popcorn, both things I am probably not supposed to be feeding a three year old.

Pearl, on the otherhand, eats like a healthy adult. She loves salad, veggies, and fruit, especially watermelon and mandarin oranges. She will try just about anything. It is a good challenge to have a healthy eater in the home. It forces me to buy wholesome foods when I shop.

I think olives are fruits.

If it makes you feel any better, my friend's son will eat ONLY peanut butter sandwiches. Nothing else.
