I decided this weekend that Nico was going to begin eating kale. Marta hates kale and I love it. My thinking was that if I could get Nico on my side we’d have voting power.
The first problem is that steamed and blended kale sans all salt or oil is actually kind of disgusting. I tasted it before serving it to Nico and realized I would need to do some serious doctoring if I wanted to win her over to my side.
So I mixed the kale with sweet potato, corn, and peas–basically everything sweet. And she ate it. Success!
We were just getting into bed tonight when Nico woke us up kind of moaning. Diaper check and what do we see? Yes. Diarrhea. The second time since this afternoon. Since she ate kale, that is.
But no worries. I will try again in six months or so, when her digestive system is stronger. And maybe then I’ll mix it with ice cream…
