Hi! I'm the 26 year old mom of a very energetic 11 month old little boy. I have always been very active (I'm a former ballet dancer and teacher) and a "healthy" eater, but I delt with eating disorders for most of my teens and adulthood, finally receiving treatment for those issues the year before I got pregnant. My husband and I both strive to set a good example for our son Aiden, both in the foods we choose and keeping active as a family. While I don't need to loose weight, I do need to work on making healthier choices on a daily basis (choose a nutritious snack over the cookie, water over diet soda, etc.). We've started being more consistent with healthy, home cooked, family dinners almost if not all nights of the week. We've also been meeting at the gym every evening, letting Aiden run and play with other little ones in the kids club while we work out.

Right now my biggest challenge is finding foods that Aiden will actually eat! He loves fruit and enjoys a good amount of veggies, but most of the time he would just rather play than eat. He is very open to tasting new foods, but will often take one bite and then ignore the rest. For now I just stick to the "keep offering a variety of foods, don't give unhealthy options, and he won't starve" approach, but if anyone has any suggestions on how to coax a young toddler into eating more healthy protiens and veggies I would be grateful!
