Katie has asked me to host this week’s Ordinary Moments as she’s in that wonderful newborn haze with her newly extended little family. So if you’d like to link up, add your link at the bottom of this post.
Little Man loves sweetcorn but more specifically he loves corn on the cob. He would eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner if he could and it’s always the first thing he chooses if we offer it to him at meal times or if it’s on the menu when we eat out.
LP used to love sweetcorn but since starting school and other children’s tastes rubbing off on her she hasn’t touched it but Little Man still loves it, eating it as much as he can. I’m not sure whether he loves the actual sweetcorn or the novelty of biting the corn from the cob but whatever it is he just can’t get enough of it.
Little Man won’t often eat a whole children’s meal when we’re out but if we get him corn on the cob it will disappear in no time. I have never known a child love a single food so much as he loves corn on the cob.
I remember as a child loving corn on the cob. It was always a treat – something we would get when we went to the pick your own farm a couple of times a year. I’d help my parents strip the corn and then cook it before slathering it in butter and having it for lunch. Even now it’s something I love to eat, especially on the barbecue in the summer, and it looks like Little Man has inherited my love of sweetcorn too.
