Good morning everyone!
I hope you are having a great week!
We’ve been having a very stressful one; our 22 month old suddenly decided to not eat his meals and to only drink his milk. The only other food he wants is yogurt, ice cream, cake and rice. His daily routine hasn’t changed; we prepare his breakfast, his lunch, takes his afternoon nap, take him outside for his daily walks and prepare him dinner. Happily, he is still very energetic.
This isn’t his first time not eating but it has never lasted this long. Last time, we spoke with his paediatrician about this but she didn’t think it was serious, we were explained that this is a normal behaviour and that many kids his age go through this phase. As first time parents, it’s been hard not worrying about it.
I did my own research online about this; we believe it might be due to him still teething!
Feeding him used to be the least of my worries but since he stopped eating, we are getting very creative with his meals yet nothing is working. Luckily, homemade waffles have remained on Nate’s preferred dietary regiment. Please let me share with you our favourite simple and delicious homemade waffle recipe, it’s very easy to prepare and only takes 15 minutes. We mainly prepare these on Saturday mornings for him and he loves every single bite:
These are the ingredients you will need to prepare your own:
- 1 3/4 cup of flour
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups of milk
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon of baking soda
start by combining all your dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl:
mix the wet ingredients together:
add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients:
stir all the ingredients until soggy:
pour the waffle batter into a pre-heated waffle iron:
depending on the intensity and size of your waffle iron, cook until they are browned:
Voila! delicious homemade waffles for your family:
Serve them with your favourite fruits but you could also add whipped cream on top or any of your other favourite toppings:
Again, Nate’s little chubby hand had to be part of my pictures:
Whatever the reason is that he suddenly stopped eating, it must not be that serious, at least we hope, since he can make exceptions for waffles:
Thanks again for stopping by!
