Well I think the baby food grinder was a good idea. Brandon has dysphagia so its hard for him to eat solids and jarred baby food, well, its yucky. Anyway, I made some hamburger helper last night for Kelly and the kids. Brandon kept trying to get into Kelly's food. That was a great thing to see for me because he really hasn't had much interest in food. So I decided to try grinding it up and see what happens. I made it pretty thick because you have to add water to it or milk to get the consistency really thin. I was afraid if I added liquids it would make it taste yucky. So I gave it to him like this. He ate it!!!! But I am not sure if I should make it thinner. He only ate about eight bites. You can hear him when he eats. Because of the dysphagia and poor muscle tone in his mouth everything he eats is like eating peanutbutter. You know how its hard for you to eat peanutbutter and swallow it. That is what he looks like when he eats anything that isn't really thin. He opens his mouth really wide and you can see him struggling to eat it. So I may have to make the consistency thinner. But I am so psyched to see him eating things. I think his problem is that baby food is just yucky. We shall see. I will keep you posted!

That is great,
I know the twins love the flavor of the gerber toddler meals, they have all diffrent flavors; turkey stew with rice, chicken stew with noodles, spagetti and meatballs, diffrent raviolis etc. I have a hard time getting them to take the first bite of most foods but if they see the gerber bowls they run to it. One bowl is enough for both the twins so you could probably get two meals for Brandon out of one. I like them better than feeding them the hamburger helper stuff or other "adult" meals because they are fortified, and "made" for toddlers. I think I pay about 1.25-1.30 per bowl, and get it on sale sometimes for 10 for 10.00.

Glad that he is doing better, hope it keeps up.
