If you don’t know what it is

Apparently I have a few more things to teach Reid about eating. The “if you’re full, stop eating” advice I gave a while ago wasn’t as exhaustive as I thought it was.

We were in the car one night recently and Reid was eating a hard-boiled egg and some veggies. After a bit, she held a bit of something up and asked me what it was. Being a good and conscientious driver, I kept my eyes on the road and told her not to eat things she couldn’t identify. Reid said, “I think its egg. (And then, while chewing) I’m sure it was egg.”

So Mama’s Helpful, Healthful Tips for Eating now include:
If you don’t know what it is, don’t eat it; and
If you’re full, stop eating.

What would you add?
