Bread Story

The li'l Master was a big fan of bread when he was much younger. Ever since he started solids and able to eat wheat-based food, he's been eating plain bread almost every morning. But he got tired of it when he reached 18 months old.

Now he takes biscuits for breakfast and occasionally bread. He has a funny way of eating bread. First, he'll bite and eat the sides/skin. After all the sides/skin are gone, he'll take a bite of the bread and chew, then spit it out. :-| If we don't stop him, he'll continue to bite, chew and spit. He's exactly like jie jie. She was also going for the sides/skin at one point of time when she was a toddler.

~ biting the sides/skin ~

~ no more skin ~

So what happens to the remaining bread? While he's engrossed in watching tv, we'll quickly feed him. Sometimes, he gets tricked, sometimes he doesn't. When he doesn't, I'll finish up the rest if the bread hasn't turned dry and hard.

He'll not eat (but play with it) when he's not in the mood for bread, even with jam or butter spread. I've also tried making nice shapes (star and flower) with my cookie cutters but he's just not interested. Sweet buns and flavoured bread, he's okay. Got to face the fact that he's a big boy now and doesn't like plain food anymore.

Ur boy and my boy would make a perfect team. One eats skin, the other eats white portion. When SP was CE's age, he only wanted the white part. I ended up buying skinless bread for at least a year. No worries la...I was told the skin part is more nutricious.

sue said...

Aiyo, I only like the white part...

Tracy said...

Haha, the opposite with Des. She won't eat the skin (just like her mommy). Whenever I've brushed on the butter and jam, she'll want me to trim away the skin. Luckily she loves to eat bread with whatever but not plain, like her mommy (again) *blek*

Jaanvi said...

I tried to give my son the soft portion(9 months old) but he didn't liked it...:(

mybabybay said...

Hi Slavemom, you sure got one really cute kid. Couldn't help smiling read how he eats his bread, ha ha.
When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
You have a great week and have fun with the cute guy, Lee.

little prince's mummy said...

Wow!~ really pattern, eat onli bread skin~~ haha~

Health Freak Mommy said...

Only eats skin? That's funny coz most kids hate the skin, including me when I was a kid. What about toasting the bread? Wld he eat the whole slice then when it's crispy?

slavemom said...

Paik Ling, surprisingly he doesn't like the bread end wor.

Sasha, I wonder if he'll like it if I cut out the skin for him. :-\

Jac, sometimes I'm edi full, still gotta finish up his leftover whites.

Hazel, even if I spread some jam or peanut butter, it's vy thin oni.

Linda, the lil doggie has become a tikus. hehehe

Wen, yup... mommy's the tong sampah. :p

Juana, based on the comments I got, my kids r really weird... prefering the skin than the whites. :D

Sue, most ppl do, my kids r weird! hahaha

Tracy, like Mommy, like daughter. :)

Jaanvi, maybe he prefers the skin too. :D

Mich, if oni he'll take the whites as well.

Unc Lee, and a mother needs to eat twice too! hehehe

Yatie, good girl Afriena. ;)

NomadicMom, I'd hv a big headache too if my kids dun eat bread. It's vy convenient food.

Fiona, at least there's no wasting.

Debbie, I'd rather he not touch the whites. I can still finish up for him. But no way I'm eating wat he spit out. ewww...

Wonderful Life, my kids r the odd ones out. :)

Joanne, no way I can force this lil guy.

June, doesn't work either.

Little Prince's mummy, weird leh.

Shireen, that's a great idea. Maybe I can jes toast it a lil so it won't be so heaty.

Lemonjude said...
