Sweetcorn {The Ordinary Moments}

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.

    Ahh corn on the cob is delicious though. Z used to try to live off sweet corn but wanted nothing on it all, including butter. There would be impending doom if we tried it πŸ™‚

    My niece is exactly the same with sweetcorn! Alice has just started to get a taste for it and asks for it with her peas, she likes the two together. It is funny how they latch on to something and eat it so much. Thank you for hosting for Katie while she has some extra cuddles with her gorgeous boy x

    Oh I love a corn on the cob but I can’t get my eldest to eat it – it got in her teeth once and now she says she doesn’t like it! X

    Sensible boy – corn on the cob is awesome!! I remember it as an Autumn treat from childhood too so last year I tried to grow some but it crashed and wilted and we went back to looking for it at the market!!

    I remember Lil G going through a similar phase. I wonder what it is? For me it’s the lashings of butter & burnt bits #TheOrdinaryMoments

    My two love corn on the cob too, we don’t have it often enough.

    Aww bless him. I do like it too, but not when its stuck in your teeth (adult problems). I lived in Arizona for a while and they used to have these little Mexicans on bike trailers riding round with hot corn on the cob inside.. it was like $1.50 and they’d put butter or paprika on it…such a tasty snack! Im sure he would love it haha x

    Phoebe loves corn on the cob too! She used to just suck it and we’d only know what went in when we changed her nappy the following day πŸ˜‰ But now she’d just devour a whole bit and just leave the core!

    My girls used to love it but we haven’t had it for ages. Must try it this week! Lovely to see you yesterday x

    I don’t blame him corn on the cob is lush. Baby has just decided she likes ‘sweetcorns’ as she calls it, but haven’t yet tried her with a cob! Thanks for hosting huni x

    Aw this is so cute Donna, I love that he loves Sweetcorn so much. I wish my girls loved vegetables, I can just about get them to eat a few peas but even that is pushing it. Thanks for hosting for me and sorry I haven’t been to visit your blog in a while, it has been a hectic couple of weeks. I thought I would have a mammoth catch up! xx
