Molly finally, (at 7 years old) has her first loose tooth. She got her first tooth about a week before her first birthday so the dentist said not to be surprised if she gets her grown up teeth a little later too. I was talking to her about her day and as I was looking at her, I noticed that there seemed to be a small gap between her bottom teeth that hadn't been there before. I asked her if her tooth was wiggly and she showed me, with her chest puffed out in pride, that indeed it was.
We made sure to give her some softer foods so that she has an easy time eating. Our only issue was finding a vegetable that she would eat cold that wasn't too crunchy. I offered edamame or peas but she wasn't interested. At this point in time we're fine with no vegetables as long as she eats.
Our fruit side is unsweetened applesauce and grapes. Molly requested both of these since they are nice and soft but still taste good.
Our dairy side is a twisted cheese stick. Molly said that she missed this in her lunch today so we ran out and got some for her.
Our extra crunch is baby goldfish. We figured that there was enough mushy food in here so a little crunch was a nice touch.
Finally, our dessert is low fat strawberry yogurt. Molly said that she still likes vanilla but that strawberry would be a nice change. She's so sweet when she asks for things kind of shyly.
