Just a note to share some excitement that my little guy is no longer refusing Corn! Woot Woot!
He has never been a fan of corn .. and aside from I think a total of 3 times that he took a teensy taste .. or a few munches .. or the one! random time at a friends cottage where he actually stole a raw corn and ran away eating it and I was like "let him have it!!!" .. he has been altogether anti-corn. A sad thing if you want to have a meal say .. just corn and BbQ ribs and salad .. as we had last night .. which in the past he would have only eaten the ribs! Well, I can happily say we are in week 3! of true corn loving land .. I was really worried it was a passing phase but we have had 3! meals of corn and he has had at least a few real serious bites of delight of "his corn".
This was a great new taste appreciation that took absolutely Zero work on my part .. no taste trials .. or strategies were used .. well, ok actually we have been loading up his corn with lots of butter and making it generously salty .. and we have been talking to him about how corn grows and how the kernels become popcorn [which he adores] and that whole process of drying it .. and sometimes we call the corn "popcorn corn" and he has been saying that .. so that may have helped him a bit but honestly this one new taste love has been so easy and such a nice surprise to know that just when I think "aaah my little guy will never eat corn!" .. that in fact it may take time .. like years even .. but it can and may and probably will happen!
