Thursday’s Thirteen


Deeder’s Diet

Thinking of Deeder’s upcoming week long stay with his grampa and gramma in Washington I wanted to make out a list of things that my little dude likes to eat. So, here it is: 13 things in 5 categories, just to keep it simple!


Juices. Darren buys frozen juice concentrates a lot and Deeder completely enjoys them, especially the blend flavors.

Milk. We get organic whole milk by the gallon now because Deeder goes through so much of it! He always has a sippy cup nearby with milk in it throughout the day.

Water. Deeder likes to drink it from water bottles or a cup, he wont take it in his sippy–don’t know why.


Oatmeal with raisins in it and honey or a little brown sugar on top.

Scrambled eggs with cheese on toast

Blueberry pancakes with apple sauce on top and bacon on the side


Peanut butter and jelly (or honey) on wheat

Grill cheese sandwich with ham and tomato soup

Bean and cheese quesadilla, with sour cream for dipping


Breakfast or lunch items, depending on his mood. Example: if he had oatmeal for breakfast I make him eggs for dinner. Sometimes on Daddy’s day off we go out to eat; sometimes that gets complicated and I end up feeding him at home after we get back.


Potato chips.

Junior Mints.

Sierra Mist.

As a bonus, I think I’ll add on the bottom here a little list of things he used to love but wont touch anymore:

Cheese sticks
Mash potatoes
Green beans

I think I’d classify him as a kid who will eat anything. Just because nothing seems to really bother him–if he’s hungry he will eat what he’s offered, even things that I would guess might be spicy to a young child’s taste.

    Great list! Zack is very similar – if he’s really *that* hungry he’ll eat almost anything, regardless of how spicy it is!

    This is a helpful list for the old Gramma Momma, too. :) I’m glad Darren and Diederick are coming when I’m not working, so I’ll have time to make the pancakes with bacon. Yum! We could all go for some nice breakfasts around here. :)
