I have mentioned to you sometime ago that I bought Gerber for James. I was told that if you let your baby get use to Gerber, they will become a picky – eater which as much as possible, I try my best to avoid James to become one although there’s a huge possibility that he will kasi I am one picky – eater too. I don’t eat veggies and other ulam sa totoo lang. I don’t like to be forced kasi the more na I am being asked to eat a food that I don’t prefer, the more na ayoko. Sometimes, I base my judgement on the looks of it and how it is being served and sometimes, sa kung sino pa ang nagluto. #ubodngarte Hahahaha. I know but this is the way I am. But then, when I started to blog again, I have decided to try some other food. There will still be time na mejo maarte talaga ako when it comes to food, yung tipong I stick to my comfort food all the time but then I will try my best to at least explore things around me. I think this will be one step of achieving new, don’t you think? So when I said that James has the tendency to become a picky – eater too, hell I am not joking. Hehe. Good thing Daryl wasn’t. He can eat whatever kahit lupa. Hahahah! Joke lang Bebe. =) I am hoping James would appreciate food like Daryl does. So, why let James try it? I just want to.. Hehe! I want to discover the things that he would and wouldn’t like at all. I want to see which food he likes the best.
His usual routine is, he will be offered lugaw or pandesal in the morning when he wakes up or even a biscuit. Later in the morning, around 10am onwards or before I go to work, I will have him eat cerelac. Sometimes, if Nanay’s able to cook food like the other day, he will be offeredveggies like sayote for example. I just didn’t see if he like it though. Then the whole day, he will have milk unless Nanay would offer him rice only or bread or anything in a small amount.
When I was buying Gerber, I don’t know which flavor to pick. I was standing there for 5 minutes lang naman kasi kasama ko si James or else baka tinubuan na ako ng ugat sa pagkakatayo ko dun. Hahaha. When I go to malls kasi with James, kinakarga ko na lang sya kesa sa baby carrier kasi mas madali akong mapagod eh, I think.
Two days ago, I let James try Gerber. I bought the Banana Flavor kasi I love Bananas eh. Feeling ko din kasi it’s one of the safest flavor I can go. Yung ibang flavor kasi na available sa groceries are Squash, Carrots then yung ibang mixed na. The moment of truth came… Drum roll please!!! James… didn’t.. like.. it. Nakakainis! Hahahah. I thought he would love it pero nung sinubuan ko sya, nag asim face sya tapos para syang masusuka. I tasted it myself and found na maasim pala yung Banana Flavor kala ko pa naman matamis. I stopped him from eating it kasi nga para syang masusuka. Although hindi naman ako nawawalan ng pag-asa na magugustuhan din nya. Baka di lang sya sanay sa ibang flavor pa. I have read somewhere din na it takes 15 times ata bago maging familiar ang mga babies sa bagong lasa. So I’ll try it again next time. I also bought the Monggo and soya flavor ng Cerelac and so far, he liked it. I tasted it and it was almost the same taste with the rice and soya flavor.
I was able to see other food that can be introduced to James pero I opted not to for the meantime. I want him to be able to eat fresh vegetables pa rin. =) I badly want to visit Healthy Options outlet for their organic food. I have heard a lot of good reviews about it so I am trying that too. #makikigayalang. Maybe in the next couple of weeks. Tara! =)
