How far will she take this....

She gags at the smell of food, she survives for days with very minimal amounts of food, she prefers to have nothing touching on her plate, and her latest is the fact that she uses a different utensil for each item on her plate. A spoon for her corn, and two forks. One for her rice and one for her salmon. At least she ate that meal! That's my Claire.....

OMGoodness! Has she been checked for OCD? ;)

We have one picky eater too. They keep mealtimes interesting don't they?

Karen said...

Sounds like my boy. (Except that he would never eat salmon.) Something about your attitude sounds familiar, too. ;-)

I always thought that I'd never have a picky eater. Well, I've got two! It isn't too fun, is it?!

That is quite funny that she uses different utensils for different food and two forks for her salmon. Never a dull moment with your beautiful girl!

It could be worse, she could be like Prof. Fleinheart on Numb3rs who only eats white foods :P

Oliver is like that too. He needs different plates though.

Sounds like my hubby. Although, he will use only one fork. LOL! They even removed Dale's tonsils as a child thinking it would rid his picky eating and minimal liking of food in general. He has said many times he eats only because he has to, not because he enjoys it. She may grow out of it, she might not. Don't fret though...if the Dr. says she is doing okay then no worries.

hey, whatever it takes to get them to eat!

Jodi said...

Has she been talking to Mr. Bill? Last night he had to have 3 forks for three different foods.

ROFLOL!

That is too funny. And I thought my daughter was nuts for having to have a specific spoon when she eats! LOL

Mine just hate food!

Oh, my! She is finnicky. She is like a very exquisite cat who turns her nose up at the slightest thing. She will need to be pampered all her days. :)
I guess Claire doesn't eat with her hands. Does she eat pizza with a knife & fork? Tell her Jamie Dawn said she needs to get a bowl of pudding and eat it with her hands. I'm sure her response will be...
Eeeeeww!!

Oh boy! I don't miss those days. LOL. Hang in there :)
