We have a winner!

Pears. Zeke Likes pears. He likes them so much that he screams when he realizes we are done with the pears and I'm feeding him rice cereal. He also throws stuff off of his tray, like the spoon and his sippy cup. He's learning that gravity applies to inanimate objects even though he firmly believes he, personally, is exempt. Mike says we should mix the pears with the squash. Then he'll either start liking the squash or start hating pears. I really wanted him to like vegetables. Maybe there's still hope for the carrots.

Sugar is the answer, of course. Pears have a lot.

"Just a spoonful of sugar helps the squishy squash go down..."

And that's what grandparents are for, yes?

It sounds like you are volunteering to come feed Zeke squash. Awesome. Next time we visit we are bringing squash and pears for you (to feed to Zeke)(and to taste for yourself if you like).

And the sugar?

We used to take a spoon full of squash and then dip it in the pears for Hayley. She ate all her squash. Maybe not a bad idea.
