I love food. Chocolate especially. The mister shares my love of chocolate and we are known to buy a weeks worth of chocolate and eat it in a day. I've heard it's good for you. Something about endorphins. I know you can get them while exercising but eating chocolate is so much better. Also, chocolate apparently sets off similar chemicals in your brain that falling in love does.
Lufflump, however, does not like chocolate. He's eaten it before but doesn't like it. He'd much prefer to eat savoury food like olives, chips and anything really salty. I think it was because I ate chocolate and cake all throughout my pregnancy with him. I caused his dislike of sweets. It works out well though. We, adults, eat the chocolate while Lufflump eats apples, oranges, olives or vegemite sandwiches. Apparently that's healthier than chocolate.

Lufflump doesn't like a lot of things. In fact he refuses to eat a lot. He does love certain foods though like sausages. I think he could eat sausages forever. He also likes spicy food especially curries. Let's not forget yoghurt. He makes yoghurt companies rich. In fact we are looking to buy a yoghurt machine to save money, that's how much yoghurt he consumes. The only time he eats vegies are when they are on pizza.
I worry. The mister tells me I shouldn't, that his body will eat what it needs to, but I still worry. It's part of being a mother isn't it? I worry that he isn't getting the nutrients he should be from vegetables. I worry that he drinks too much milk and that he should be using cups instead of bottles. I worry that he eats too much vegemite, doesn't that have a lot of salt in it?
He does eat fruit, an apple and orange at least, every day. Sometimes he'll eat carrot but more often than not he just chews then spits it out (like an old man).
I know this isn't a common toddler problem so please help me out with suggestions. What do you put in your kid's lunch box?
