The broad bean monster

The broad bean monster lives in my house.

"I don't like carrots"
But you liked them yesterday.

"I don't like those bits"
Mushrooms used to be your favourite.

"I won't eat that"
Parsnips are lovely. You used to like them.

"No, not that"
But butternut squash really is yummy. I'm not even lying about that one.

So I offer my son a selection of baked beans or broad beans.

The boy chooses broad beans.
I didn't expect that.

"Yay, yay special beans"
Really? I don't remember them being special.

He polishes them all off before even contemplating his (usually first choice) fish fingers.

My son is odd.



  1. Been there, done that! My son will nearly always eat his veggies but sometimes he will refuse fish fingers, chicken dippers etc over the veggies. He is going through a very fussy stage at the moment but today is a really good day he has eaten pasta and sauce and we made pizza together and he is eating that too :D

    I have a fussy vegetable eater normally. He'll eat pretty much anything, as long as it's not something new to him. Curry is still his favourite though.

  3. Hahaha, sooo funny. My daughter is like that too. And my son as well, still, thinking about it. Only the youngest is at that lovely age where she gorges everything.
    I should try those special beans on mine!

    1. Seemingly, if you add special in front of any food at the moment he will eat it!
