My new favorite recipe

Here's what I've learned about kids and eating--they come out of the womb either picky or eating everything.

Eloise has always been a sparse eater. Every meal she "needs help", except when she is eating something sweet. It's taken a while to find my rhythm with her and knowing when to push and when to back off, but we seem to have hit a balance lately.

Lily, well, she came out eating. She eats exactly like Dave--mostly meat, veggies and very little sweets. Just the opposite of her sister who eats like me, no meat and everything sweet.

But I have found a new recipe that satisfies all preferences for eating in the house. And it's simple to make, which is always a plus.

Spaghetti with Parmesan and Bacon -- Delicious!
It's over here at Cooking Light.

Thanks for the recipe. I have a bit of the same going on at my house. I wondered if it was because Steele had a difficult time eating at first. But from your post, I'm wondering if it might have something to do with birth order?.... Whatever it is - it's always nice to find something everyone likes.

OH man! I'm going to give this recipe a try and test my own theory of picky eaters.

Tonight I got ALL of my kids to eat spinach, broccoli, califlower, zucchini, and peas. Only in the form of meatloaf meatballs and mashed potatoes. The LICKED their plates!!!

Tyler=texture issues but otherwise decent eater. He has his moments.

Jessica=ZERO issues. actually doesn't eat typical "kid" food so makes it hard to feed her on the go

Isaac=hates most foods and will throw them across the room to let you know he hates them.

But I'm willing to bet ANYTHING with pasta and bacon will be a hit! Thanks for the post!!!
