My mother-in-law is away on vacation, so I am responsible for feeding my kids. She usually makes them a noodle soup (of some sort) for lunch as she reckons they enjoy something soupy and that it is easier for them to eat. My oldest daughter is getting a bit “sian” of her food, but because grandma is queen of the kitchen, she has no choice but to eat it. So this week, with Grandma on hols, I have decided to give them an alternative.
This week so far I have fed them:
Monday – Bee Tai Bak soup (low shi fun)
Tuesday – Macaroni and cheese
Wednesday – Fried rice with corned beef and corn – not the healthiest but at least they ate it!!
Mother-in-law will bend over backwards and takes orders for lunch. She will cook 3 different things for the 3 kids based on their request. As for me, too bad – it’s “take it or leave it”…and the funny thing is, my way seems to be working. Even little D is not so fussy these few days. She has been eating Mummy’s cooking, and I don’t even have to run and scream after her to eat. She even sits with everyone and has her meals!! (Must say, she is beginning to enjoy oats for breakfast, when breakfast for her is usually just a bottle of milk.)
Guess. When their “supporter” is away, they have no choice but to go with mum’s rules.
