First, it was the Battle of the Broccoli.
Now, we have graduated to the Banana Wars.
My son loves bananas. He would be perfectly fine with eating them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I ate bananas on a regular basis while pregnant with him, so it’s no big wonder that he likes them so much.
Banana (NaNa) was one of the first words he learned how to say.
My son has been doing pretty decent with telling us when he is hungry by saying “Eat.” But as of a couple of days ago, all he asks for is bananas.
He comes up to his dad or me and says, “NA-NA!” He’s so excited that he can ask for what he wants. We go to the kitchen to get a banana for him and he does the happy dance behind us. When he gets the banana, he continues to do the happy dance while eating.
He ate four bananas on Monday. It was crazy! My husband had to go to the store and get more because we ran out of them.
On the one hand, I’m very excited that he is using his words and is asking for things. I’m also happy that his favorite food is something healthy vs. junk food.
But then again, I’m wondering how many bananas is too many for a toddler to eat each day?
Is this something I should be concerned about? Or is it just another phase that he is going through and he’ll grow out of it?
