Parenting officially became hard once I discovered that my oldest was a picky eater. It was honestly to the point I didn’t think I’d be able to get anything healthy into his body.

My son ate everything in the baby food jars just fine, but as soon as I started giving him solids of my own that every meal I prepared became a challenge. He would gag and act like he was going to throw up. He didn’t like all the different textures of all the new foods he was eating. There were a handful of things he actually loved and would eat.

 

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes

Pancakes were included in this small list. I was introduced to a fantastic pancake recipe and it is delicious! (Recipe can be found in this previous post). It made me feel sneaky by adding in healthy items – like applesauce, and oatmeal – into his food. Yes, I turned into one of those sneaky moms!

The day I learned to cut pancakes for kids with a pizza cutter was the best day ever. It’s a great time saver and my kids love to help. I think letting children have an active role with their own food prep helps them be more engaged in eating.
