Our 15 month old son is starting the terrible two's early, and for a few days would not eat the food I tried to feed him. He had been eating the same meal as us, just vitamized, but for some reason, he put his foot down and said loudly 'nnnnnnnnnnnnno!' I was tearing my hair out until my husband remembered something he used to eat as a child - semolina.
We can buy 1 kilo of Semolina for $3.00. We only use 1/4 of a cup of the stuff, so it will last ages. Little LJ loves it, for a week he ate nothing else but Semolina with a piece of fruit mixed in. His favourite is with banana. Yesterday he was feeding himself with a spoon in one hand and using his fingers on the other hand, he just couldn't get enough of it. I have attached a photo for your entertainment.
To make the Semolina, put in 1/4 cup semolina to a saucepan with 1 1/4 cups of milk and about a heaped tablespoon of sugar. Cook until the mixture thickens and pour into bowls. This is enough for two meals for LJ. I then cut up a piece of fruit and mix it in to each bowl. I use bananas, sultanas, plums, stewed apple or nectarines, but any fruit could work. Just be adventurous.
