30 New Food Challenge - Updated

UPDATE: She is doing wonderful with her new food challenge. She has tried corn, including eating it off of the cob, canteloupe, watermelon, grape tomatoes, blueberries.... and has not only tried these new foods, is actually incorporating them into her regular diet. Thank you dear Lord! Our daughter finally is eating a well balanced, nutritious meal (one of Mommy's pet peeves).

Our eldest daughter (picky eater) has a new challenge. She learned about charts on Sid the Science Kid and so Mommy created a chart for her. She is to try 30 new healthy foods and then, she is able to collect the reward.... a roller coaster ride! It turns out that this is something she is obsessed with and is so looking forward to riding on one (a super fast one she tells me). So, the plan is to ride the one at the Indianapolis Zoo (hopefully that works out -- guess I had better check it out).

So far, she has eaten:
- Cucumbers
- Roasted Sweet Potatoes
- Tortilla sandwich (using tortilla shell instead of bread)
- Spaghetti

We encouraged the spaghetti by teaching her the song "On Top of Spaghetti".
