The secret to feeding a toddler

Sometimes feet also find their way into a
bowl of yoghurt.
I've concluded my girl will eat anything, provided it fits two main criteria*:
1. It is exceptionally bad for you. 
2. It makes an exceptional mess. 

With a sometimes-employed third:
3. It is on my plate and I appear to be enjoying it. Generally this is pilfered, chewed, declared 'cuck!', and deposited back on my plate in a mushy pile. Repeat until all pieces of the food in question are either actually eaten (by me) or returned. 

Examples of food fitting the criteria:

  • Chocolate 
  • Chips
  • Biscuits 
  • Hard boiled eggs. Shell must be scattered as far as possible. 
  • Yoghurt. Eaten with fingers. 
  • Salad veggies from my plate.

Preparing to scatter shell far and wide.
* The exception is meat. She's quite the carnivore. 

Are there any food-related rules in your house you didn't instigate?
