Chuckles is being finicky again, and he’s down to about 15kg, a worrying number. Also, cooking fresh rice, chicken, and rice; chopping/mixing it all up so he doesn’t just pick out the chicken; and making fresh batches every day is becoming time-consuming and tiring. Which would be okay if he ate the fresh food consistently… I’d be happy if all it took was switching to fresh food, more work or not!
Basically, if we mix the food exactly right (size/shape/temperature/bowl type, all matter) and if all the ingredients are fresh enough (he refuses any refridgerated/frozen and reheated food), he’ll eat it. If not, he just backs away and refuses to eat. Waste of good food and frustrating that he’s not eating.
I looked around today, did some research, and come up with this:
It’s apparently a fresh food with chicken, rice, vegetables, vitamins, and minerals. Best of all, it’s ready made. I’ll still have to talk to Chuckles’ nutritionist to see if this is acceptable, but it’ll make our lives a lot easier if we can just use this instead of cooking every other day for him.
Also, the following is a review of the food:
Best of all, I bought a few packs, and Chuckles gobbled up one meal’s worth and looked pleadingly up at me for more.
I’ll keep you all posted on what the nutritionist says re: the completeness of the food in terms of nutrition.
