Royce has been eating solids since he was 6 months old. His first foods were hard boiled egg yolks and avocado. Now he eat nearly everything. I’ve been trying to come up with lots of fun ideas for him to enjoy and try new things.
For lunches and dinners, I typically try to meal prep his meals so all I have to do is microwave. When he wants to eat, he wants to eat immediately. I cook all the meats at once, chop and cook all the vegetables, and portion the meals out.
