Aside from breast milk, I watch what my nephew eats (he is about 1 year old) and he is fed nothing but fruit. Mangoes, bananas, cherries, watermelon, and then little fruit bars and yogurt. I told my mom it doesn’t seem right to me and she said this is just what babies eat.
I just want to give him some mashed vegetables instead, along with maybe some low mercury fish for lunch or dinner instead of the constant fruit plates. He does occasionally eat cheese.
I have seen them give him ice cream (some hagen daaz kind I think) and a part of me breaks inside. It doesn’t seem natural or good in any way. Am I overreacting? I don’t say anything of course but as somebody who grew up with an eating disorder, and had a terrible relationship with food I feel strongly about it.
