Munchkin has started choosing food for himself! He currently gets presented with a plastic plate, which he can eat from in his highchair. Because he loves eating so much, this works really well...the plate usually manages to stay in an upright position on the highchair tray with the food on top(with a Mummy intervention or two). He loves being able to choose what to eat and how to eat it. It is rather interesting to note that he currently eats like his Daddy. He picks one food, and eats all of that, before moving on to the next one (Mummy, on the other hand, is a grazer - eating a bit of that then a bit of this all in a rather more random manner!).
