Adventures in Food: Avocados and Bananas

This week on “Adventures in Food”…

…Hudson tries avocados and dramatically shows his displeasure of them. Ellisa reacts indifferently, not quite sure what to think. Stay tuned next week when we discover how the twins react to pears and peas!

Avocados and Bananas: About a month ago the twins both started with cereals; rice, oatmeal, and barley. Hudson was ready from the get go but Ellisa was aprehensive to start solids. About two weeks later, she jumped on board and started cereals too. Before long, they were both downing 2 servings of 4 tablespoons of cereal a day. That’s when we decided to mix it up a bit and start introducing fruits and veggies. Last week marks the beginning of bigger and tastier things; avocados and bananas.

Side Note: One of the reasons Charles and I wanted to have children was to laugh at them while they tried new foods. So I can’t help but document each new food we give them. This post is the first in a series I like to call “Adventures in Food.” If you can’t laugh at babies trying new foods, I’m not sure what you can laugh at. Enjoy!

Avocados:
WARNING: These are long videos, especially if they’re not your kids. If you’re going to spend any time watching these, watch from 30 sec–1.30 sec of the avocado video. Hudson’s reaction is priceless.

I have to say, the background music is perfect.

Bananas:

Sorry about the low quality video here!

For some reason, Hudson seems to be much more sensitive to the tastes and textures than Ellisa. Ellisa’s face shows that she isn’t quite sure what to think, but she doesn’t react as dramatically as Hudson does. Hudson is starting to warm up to the bananas but we’ll have to keep trying the avocado. I was told you have to give a child close to 20 tries before giving up on a new food. This mommy’s not ready to throw in the towel quite yet.

    Avacado is used for guacamole only! Seriously, try feeding Hudson some Guac and it will improve.

Let the peanuts know your thoughts.
