This isn't really an etiquette issue, so I put it here. I could use some advice, particularly if you have knowledge of teenage boys
DS13 is the fussiest eater I have ever known. Tonight, I thought I was so smart for buying cold chicken from the deli and reheating it in the oven myself, for much less than hot chicken. He said it "tasted weird"
Maybe I need reassurance. Here's what he WILL eat:FRUITS
Loves apple juice
Occasionally will eat apple slices
Sometimes mandarin oranges (I buy the kind in water)VEGETABLES
Loves corn, especially on the cob
Loves spaghetti noodles (not the sauce; just the noodles)
Whole wheat bread
Hot rolls from the can
Sliced cold-cut turkey
Fried chicken (unless it's heated in the oven, apparently)
Nothing with flavorings or any sauces
Loves peanut butter (His daily requested lunch is two PB's on wheat bread and Wheat Thins. He will drink a juice packet).
Lives for pulled beef from the crockpot, and steak (but it can't be 'wet').DAIRY
Occasionally string cheese
Loves chocolate milk (I buy lowfat)
I hope this isn't a medical thread (if so, apologies), but is he going to starve to death? He's otherwise in good health, though having skin troubles, no allergies, illness, etc. His doctor asks about his diet but doesn't seem too concerned.
He likes chips (I buy low-fat), and Chex mix, but absolutely no sweets and very little candy. I think that's a plus! He also gave up soda on his own.
I don't want to flap all over the place about this, as we're very close and I don't want to borrow trouble. Do teens generally grow out of this?
