I love cheese. It was the thing I missed the most during our travels in Asia. I missed it so much that I ordered fried cheese at a bar in Tokyo, even though I suspected it wouldn't bear much resemblance to American fried cheese (I was right: I received fried tofu balls with a little bit of cheese inside).
So it has been hard on me to watch my daughter refuse cheese. How can she not love the stuff? I cut myself several slices, and sit down to eat it in front of her while she is in her high chair for dinner or lunch. She points to my cheese, because she always points to what I'm eating. I give her a piece, she squishes it in her little hand and then shoves it away.
Tonight, I got smart. She seems to only want to feed herself things that aren't squishy, so I cut myself several slices of the least squishy cheese I could think of- Parmesan. And she ate it. And wanted more.
Anyone know of a non-squishy meat?
