It's been almost a week since we began The Dinner or The Beans. So far Charlie has eaten baked beans every night for 6 nights. Tonight he ate them with pasta, which is actually a step up from BBQ sauce, which is what he normally has with pasta. He's also eaten beans with various vegetables and all sorts of stuff. Ben has mostly eaten the dinner, as has Elissa. We've only had one meltdown over dinner, compared with an average of every second night, so I'd say that's a win.
I need to keep an eye on Charlie's protein intake, but I don't think it's a big issue at the moment. So we'll play it into another week, and see how it continues to evolve.
