Another month, another campaign to get the boys to eat properly. This time I mean business.
Boy One has some sensory issues associated with his Aspergers and he really can’t eat certain textures. He’s game though but you can see when something isn’t for him and there’s no point in making him eat stuff. Mainly his problem is with bits, unpredictable irregular bits.
Boy Two is just plain picky. For so long he got away with whatever limited, regular, processed stuff his big brother was having. Plus lashings of ketchup.
Boy Three is nearly four. With picky role models.
Lately I’ve noticed that both big Boys’ skin as been bad – rough, dry and sore. As they are both on different parts of the journey through puberty with all the huge nutritional demands that brings, I figured some proper nutrition was needed.
There have been some successes too.
Tuna burgers. Put tuna steaks in food processor with a slice of bread, some spring onions, an egg and whatever else you can get away with. Whizz. Make patties (floured hands help), chill then grill or fry.
Salmon burgers. As above.
Mincey mince. Whizz the other stuff you’d put in spag bol or shepherds pie mince into a purée. Fry mince, add purée and cook. Thus my boys ate their first courgette.
Chicken and sweetcorn with a sauce made from melted Philly went down well too.
Though I must confess I’m running out of ideas now.
I’d love to hear your suggestions.
