My husband and I recently had our first born and I really want to raise our son right and keep my family healthy. My husband andI aren't overweight and I want to keep it that way But diabetes runs strong on both sides of my family and even though I don't have it, I don't want my son to get it either. The solution? Moderate helpings and healthy food. Not so difficult, right? As if.
My husband is being unbearably difficult. He won't eat beans, watermelon, cheese, apples, strawberries, tomatoes, slow-cooker meals, pot roast, most soups, raviolis, raisins, fish (excluding tuna), fried chicken, any veggie except corn and bell peppers, he puts mass amounts of salt on everything, getting him to eat chicken is an uphill battle, kool-aid or soda pop is a must for every snack and meal, red potatoes are a no go, meat must be eaten with every dinner, and he's okay with me breast-feeding our son just because it's a 'glorified sugar supply*.' He seems to think we can legitimately raise this kid on meat and potatoes which is just ridiculous.
I'm a SAHM and I spend hours scouring for recipes online and in magazines just to have him reject 99% of them, Is there anything I can do to get him to change his diet or change his way of thinking?
* I do not intend to offend anyone with statement. It's simply a frustrating aspect as to how my husband thinks.
