It's a BIG salad. Tomatoes like volleyballs.

Bug is not a picky eater. She mostly eats whatever is put in front of her, including green beans and spinach. What we have reached is the independent stage, where she wants to feed everything to herself by herself. What we have not reached is the stage where she can do this well with a utensil. Yesterday, she put her bowl of macaroni and cheese right on the top of her head. Which she has never done before. And she had just had a bath.

Still, she has her favorites. (Do not show her the pink and white Grandma's cookies if you want her to eat anything else, ever.) If Bug had free reign of her mealtimes--and also long enough arms to reach the pantry-- this is what her diet would consist of. Pretty sure the American Academy of Pediatrics would dig this:

I should've left a spot for elecrical cords. A spot near the bottom.

This made me laugh mostly because my kids' chart would look very similar. Just replace the hot dogs with chicken nuggets and you're there. :)

Hmm...compared to this, I think I need to step it up a notch with my child's nutrition. Mac & Cheese would definitely be the base of the pyramid. With candy and cookies reinforcing the base, just to be sure. (If he had his way, that is.)

oh yes, electrical cords are quite tasty. Aspen likes to gnaw on my computer cord all the time.
