One gone, two gone, three gone, four…
Five gone, six gone, seven gone, more!
More? Are you sure? Really?
Yes, and I’m losing… well, very nearly.
She’s always eaten well has our little one
And we try to encourage by making meal-times fun.
But you might describe her food as ‘unadventurous’
Because she won’t eat greens for anyone, especially not us.
Yet this last week has raised our eyebrows somewhat,
With the question, “Mum…Dad…is that carrot hot?”
Trying not to choke with surprise on our chicken casserole,
Our faddy food journey has reached a turning point, a goal.
On her plate each night, the veggies have been jostling for room,
I could name them all with ease, thanks to Mr Bloom.
So here’s a message for stressed out mummys,
Don’t worry if they won’t have veggies in their tummys.
They may change their mind one day… when? It matters not one jot
But when they do, make sure their greens are not hot!
