i have always thought that “picky eaters” are made, not born. is this a phase? will she ever eat non white/brown foods again? HAVE I RUINED MY FOODIE CHILD???? should i stop projecting my identity as a vegetable lover onto her? should i simply spray her vegetables with sugar?

oh boy.

    My non-expert advice: just ride it out. I’m sure that if you don’t make a big deal of it, she’ll join team vegetable eventually. I weirdly remember hating peas and other perfectly delicious vegetables as a little kid, and now I’m all about the greens. Added bonus: those white foods might fatten up her skinny self!
