What Al Ate
- At breakfast, he ate the strawberries first, then some egg, then some sausage. He left the avocado.
- For lunch, he really just ate a few bites of chicken. As a snack, he had part of my Lara bar (dried cherries, crushed almonds and cashews). We did a small egg hunt in the backyard, and two of his eggs had raisins and about 8 chocolate chips. So he ate that as well (yes, a treat!).
- Dinner, he only ate a few bites of ground beef.
- We are still in a food strike, it seems. (In these times, I just nurse him more than usual. He drinks water or maybe juice, though he’s only had juice about 5 times ever. And if he is hungry, I trust that he will eat in a day or two.)
Besides a possible egg or strawberry allergy, this is all okay for 6 months and up. Avocado? I would slice the avocado half with the skin still on so that baby has something to grip! Additionally, sausage is a choking hazard because it’s circumference and firmness is similar to that of a grape, and grapes are a major choking hazard. But grapes are fine when they are cut down in size, so a sausage is fine if you cut it down. I cut it in half lengthwise, then again into smaller pieces. For a younger baby, I might just cut an entire sausage down the middle twice (quartered) and let her/him have the whole “strip”.
