Octopus? Really?

Joe loves his solid foods.  Avocados, parsnip, carrots, chicken, spinach, beef… and so on and so forth.

However…

I’m worried about having a picky eater.  I don’t think that Chris or I were particularly picky eaters {though Chris did have a reputation for gagging and making himself throw up whenever they went out to eat at a restaurant!} but I’m a bit of a picky eater, now.  I know that, many times, children learn how to eat based on their parents’ eating habits.  I’d like for Joe to look at ours and see a diet full of healthy, diverse choices.

I’ve been hearing really good things about the book “My Two-Year-Old Eats Octopus: Raising Children Who Love to Eat Everything”.  It covers a range of things from breastfeeding to preschool, from parents’ eating habits to problem eating, from eating at home to eating at restaurants {and actually enjoying it}.

So far, everything that Joe has eaten he’s loved.  I’m hoping that this book will give me some more tips on how to continue to encourage him to try new foods!

Are there any strange foods that you ate as a child?  Any strange foods that your child eats now?
