A grain of rice
Well, it's been a few days since I've reported on J and the One Bite Rule. Overall, J's eating more of his food without as much fight. He's tried a few foods that he didn't want to eat. In general, I was feeling like we were having some small successes... until last night. Last night we decided to eat dinner early so we could do some fun things together as a family before bedtime. B thought he was giving J an easy night by making his "new" food be white rice. I had my doubts, but was hopeful. J ate a great dinner, but refused to eat even one tiny grain of rice. He touched it with his tongue, but would not put it in his mouth. He chose to go to bed over an hour and a half early, to skip all the fun we had planned, just so he wouldn't have to put a tiny grain of rice in his mouth. I was (am) so frustrated! Will keep trying, but don't see much success with new foods in my future. That's disheartening.
