The current challenge we face is trying to get Benny to eat at least 1000 calories a day. Many foods that he used to like, he no longer shows an interest for the time being. Today, I thought I would try with ice cream. In the stroller and off to the ice cream store we went. Upon entering the ice cream store I asked the gentleman behind the counter to direct me to the ice cream with the most calories. He looked at me and said, “lucky you!” I replied that it wasn’t for me, but for Benny. B”H I did get lucky in choosing the right flavor. Benny enjoyed almost a full kiddie scoop of vanilla ice cream with peanut butter and chocolate mixed in. I also ordered a coffee milk shake for the freezer. We also stopped by the local grocery to stock up in fruit by the foot. He really seems to like that.
The other challenge I face is getting Benny to eat without me eating with him. I am not the one the doctor is concerned about!
We are open to creative ways in getting Benny to eat, feel free to share!
