Turns out, I've learned that there are many other things to worry about as a parent, and Cora's picky eating doesn't top the list.
Things seemed to go well when we introduced Cora to solids, but with severe food intolerances, significantly delayed teething, and possibly some sensory issues, eating isn't always the smoothest thing for her.
There are a couple of things that Cora will usually eat, but you can never be sure. Something that has her yelling with glee one day often hits the floor the next. Homemade soup is a big hit, and the only way I can mix textures in a way that my girl finds acceptable. If it's all cooked together the texture must be similar enough to keep it in her mouth. And soups are a great way to get in the veggies.
We still make it a priority to enjoy our meals together as a family every day. It's messy and sometimes it feels like work to plan, shop, cook and clean.
But it's still fun.
