My DH took DD to the Drs yesterday for a needle. She had gained back the 1lb that she lost finally. But the Dr told DH to feed her more carbs, breads and pastas and such, to help her keep the weight on. Now DH keeps trying to stuff her full of bread. I keep trying to tell him that she eats enough carbs, and that too much breads is too much sugar, but he won't listen now that the Dr told him that.

On a usual day my DD eats:






Grilled cheese with soy deli slices (or veggedog)


nutragrain bar/oatmeal cookie


meat substitute (we're veggetarians)

She doesn't eat everything everyday of course, but a few bites of everything. But she always goes for the grain products first. I don't see how you could add more carbs in her diet, without them taking over. She'd never eat anything else.

What do you guys think? I think DH told the Dr that she never eats bread (he's not usually here ). But do you think she gets enough carbs?

Yes, That's what I think too. I've been trying to get her to eat more protein, but you know what trying to get a toddler to eat something they don't want to is like. I tried to explain to DH that she gets lots of carbs in potatoes carrots, corn, cheese, and other foods too. but now he's stuck on loading her full of breads. I actually got her to eat some veggie chili lastnight . I'm just afraid that now that I've started working that DH is going to fill her up on grains all day while I'm gone. I really try to push fruit and veggies THEN give her grains otherwise that's all she'll eat. I wish that stupid Dr never said anything, DH has never looked into healthy eating habits for toddlers, so he just takes the Drs advice. grrr.

DH worries because DD is small. I understand that, but she's not skinny, or unhealthy, so who cares if she is small? She's a happy healthy lil girl. Why mess with a good thing? IMO
