Yesterday Ava tried broccoli. Here's how the conversation went:
Mom: Ava, would you like some broccoli? (puts little bit of broccoli in mouth)
Mom: Ava, try a little more broccoli.
Ava: Yak! (Note: the broccoli had BARELY touched the tongue)
Mom: How about a little more broccoli?
* yak! = gross coughing sound
After the failed broccoli attempt, we switched gears to the beloved pears.
Today we tried again, in sticking with the "introduce a new food over three days" rule. Today I took the upper hand. I added a little of the beloved apples to the much detested broccoli.
Mom: Ava, would you like some broccoli and apples?
Ava: Ya . . ummmm
Mom: [Hehe, my plan is working. The broccoli shall win today!] How about some more broccoli and apples?
Mom: Look! You've finished all the broccoli and apples! [Woohoo! Score one for the broccoli!]
Ava: Mmmm... mmm...
Who will win tomorrow?
