Why Won't She Eat Bastard Anything...?

Why won't she eat bastard anything...?
She used to love chomping all night.
Now it's a battle just to get near her face,
With anything that won't end in a fight.

Why won't WallyBubba eat anything...?
I'm so bored of watching her pick.
And chuck on the floor, what I've been slaving for,
And look at me like it's a trick.

Why won't my daughter eat anything...?
I've tried everything that I know.
Veggie bakes, dippy things, pies baked with love...
But if it's not made of chocolate, it's 'NO.'

Why won't my child bloody eat anything...?
Humans can't survive on yoghurt alone.
I can't leave the house without a whole bunch of munch,
Once the cheesy puffs are finished we go home.

Why won't she go back to eating anything...?
When she just shoved everything in.
Now it's teatime warfare, that for mummy is not fair,
So thank f@*k for petit filous and gin.

  11. This is completely 100% z!! Cept he would live off milk and strawberries if I let him!

  12. This made me smile as you could be talking about me and R. Tonight was a fight to get him to eat anything, a lovely casserole made especially for him but no he didn't want it. In the end it was one spoon of petit filous and one spoon of casserole topped with petit folous. Yuck to me but he ate it and at this moment in time ill try anything :)

    1. We had the same thing with bolognese... Apparently not enough meat in her yoghurt previously! :/ bleurgh xx

  13. I think they all do this. Just give her a bit of what you're having (minus the gin) and ride it out without stressing. In a few months she'll be back to eating everythingish again and you'll have to deal with the negotiations over how much is enough before dessert!

    Apparently when I was a toddler I didn't eat properly for nearly a year, my mum took me to the docs and everything. He said I would eat when I was hungry. Now I need my mouth wiring shut I eat so much!!

  17. What mine won't eat in the high chair she will happily munch from the floor afterwards. After it's been trodden in. Do you have a pet, put her dinner in the pets food bowl (a clean one obviously). On the floor. She will probably have it eaten in 10 secs. Floor food. It's the future.
