Moe is an EXTREMELY picky eater. He doesn't like to drink hot chocolate. He thinks it's strange to drink liquids that are hot. Moe eats his cereal dry and drinks his milk on the side. He claims to love pepperoni pizza, but takes most of the pepperoni off and scrapes off a lot of the cheese. If a chocolate chip cookie doesn't taste right, he takes the chips out of the cookie!
Moe is also the only kid that I know who is actually allergic to....VEGETABLES! And on top of that, he's allergic to most fruits, especially citrusy fruits. I take him to his allergist every year, hoping that he has grown out of his food allergies. He's developed a tolerance for spinach and lettuce, so we MAKE him eat salads for dinner. His salads consists of only lettuce, since he's allergic to tomatoes and doesn't like to eat avocado and probably won't eat anything else that I put in there anyway.
Here is a conversation we were having as we were eating our salads:
RM:"I love having cucumbers in my salad, but I don't like having carrots in them."
ME: "I don't like having anything crunchy in my salad, unless it's nuts.
Moe: "I don't like having SALAD in my SALAD." (as he struggles to eat the last bite)
Whenever a mom complains to me that their child is a picky eater. I tell them no one can beat my kid in the picky eater department!
