Our word of the week this week has to be food. As this week it feels like Ethan is wanting to eat us out of house and home!
Ethan is still obsessed with the Kinder videos you can find on youtube. Because of this, he is asking us for a kinder bar at silly times of the morning. The earliest being 5.30 am! This really isn’t the type of food I want him to start his day with.
I do limit Ethan’s kinder bar eating as he would easily eat ten a day. There is no way he is eating any before 10 am in the morning. I’m doing everything I can to stick to this rule. It means that the fact I won’t give him a bar of chocolate at 5.30 in the morning could potentially result in a meltdown.
Ethan isn’t silly though. At cretin times of the day, I will tell him he can’t have a bar of chocolate until he has eaten something healthy. For example, I will tell him first banana, then chocolate. He has tried to use this tactic in the mornings this week. If I can’t have a kinder mummy will give me a cake!
He has also come home from nursery wanting lots of snacks. As his diet is very limited this will be a cake, chocolate or crisps. We did have him eating Muller Rice but since our holiday he has gone off of those. To fill him up, out of desperation, we ended up getting him a Happy Meal at 3 pm one afternoon.
We have so many struggles with Ethan and the food he will eat. The fact that he wants to eat is fantastic. We just can’t keep up and need to stock up on some healthy snacks for him!
