New Food, New Taste

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!  =)

  1. maasin nga yan mommy jen. pero gusto yan ni baby A tsaka iba pang fruit selection nila.kapg medyo constipated sya prunes ng gerber pinapakain ko sa kanya.

    By the way, if you're introducing new food to baby james, do it after 3 days or week para makita mo kung may allergic reaction sya sa kinain nya.bago ka mag introduce ng bago. Mahirap kasi ma point kung saan food allegic kapag halo halo na yung kinain nya.

    1. Ah ganon ba? Thanks for the tip Mommy Joy! So far parang wala naman syang allergy pero would you think na ipa try ko ulit sa kanya yung Gerber Banana? Sayang naman kasi dalawang spoon lang nabawas.

    2. check mo muna kung pwede pa. kasi parang naalala ko 2 to 3 days lang ata pwede kainin from the day na binuksan mo sya. check mo yung instruction sa bottle. hindi kasi ako sure e.

      good thing walang allergy sa food si baby james. Wag ka muna mag egg pala. Stick ka muna sa first food like squash, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes. yung apple mommy jen, pang pa tigas yan ng poop kaya hinay hinay lang sa bigay. Yan kasi natutunan ko sa mga nabasa ko e, hehe. =)

    3. Thanks Joy! Ang helpful. Mejo tamad kasi ako magbasa minsan and nagagawa ko lang ang mag internet kapag nasa office at walang trabaho. Hehehe =)
      Alam mo na, walang time kapag nasa bahay.
      Yung mga squash ba saka yung carrots ilalaga ko? Heheh or yung sa Gerber na lang muna. Mas prefer ko kasi sana na kumain sya nung mga veggies talaga eh. Kaya lang unsure ako kung dapat ko bang ilaga o kelangan kasama talaga sa lulutuing ulam. I remembered kasi, pinakain ko sya ng patatas galing sa menudo, ayaw nya. Nalasahan nya kasi ata yung menudo eh.

  2. may mantika kasi pag galing sa ulam e kaya nung simula ko palang sya pinapakain, yung cerelac vegetable flavor hinhaluan ko ng nilagang carrots or squash. kapag fruit flavor na cerelac hinahaluan ko ng ripe mango or banana. para atleast di naman ganun ka artificial yung food nya diba.

    1. Sa ngayon kasi Joy as in Cerelac lang as is hindi ko pa na try haluaan. Yung nilagang carrots/squash ba na nilalagay mo as in nilaga mo lang sa water ng walang halo?

      Delete
    2. oo yung distilled pa din gamit ko. kung gusto mo sa fruits ka nalang bumawi kung nahihirapan ka pa maglaga ng gulay. ihalo mo yung fresh fruit sa cerelac

    3. Thank you Joy! Sige I'll try fruits muna. Di ba sasakit tyan nun kapag pinakain ko ng mangga? hehehe. =)

    4. kasi ako hinahalo ko yung ripe mango dun sa cerelac na rice ata flavor nun. unti lan pakain mo kasi nagsisimula pa lang sya kumain e.

      naalala ko kasi first time ko pakain si baby A ng cerelac yung banana and wheat ata, e sabi ng pedia hanggat ngumanganga at gusto kumain e pakainin ko lang. Di pala dapat ganun, kailangan i moderate mo yung bigay ng food kasi pag nasobrahan mag vomit sila. Takot ako nung halos lahat nun, inilabas nya.wew!

    5. Oo nga eh, Minsan yung feel ko lang na mauubos nya yung pinapakain ko. Ang meron kasi ako ngayon yung rice and soya. Yun ata yung plain so dun ko na lang ihahalo Mommy Joy? Ayaw nga ni James yung banana and wheat eh. =( Mas prefer nya yung brown rice and soya ata. =)

  3. i guess yun plain lang mommy jen. assorted flavor kasi pinapakain ko dati kay baby A na cerelac dati. Pero mommy jen, kung kaya mo as much as possible fresh na fruit or veggies mas maganda. Paturo ka nalang sa mommy mo mag prepare. Hindi ko din kasi nagawa dati yung madalas mag luto ng natural na food e kaya pinakain ko sya cerelac dati. Mabuti nalang din, di sya choosy sa food nung lumalaki na except awful talaga yung tasle.

  4. Cerelac is great way to fulfill your baby daily dietary and nutritive requirements. It has Iron, Calcium, Fatty Acids and Vitamins thats helps child in early stage development.
