    Heidi,
    That's funny, my M was the same. Lettuce is only a recent add-on, but she happily eats all the "goodies" in the salad (peppers, craisins, tomatoes…) I like that you didn't pressure him and he is finding it himself. It is amazing to watch isn't it? (Lettuce seems a really tricky food!)

    My son astonished me last night when I was eating a salad and he asked for a bite "without too much salad dressing." The salad dressing part isn't the shocker – it's that he'll eat just about any vegetable but has never wanted salad. After seeing us eat it for years now, he decided a few days ago that he'd eat some with croutons. Yesterday's salad had no croutons – just cucumber and lettuce and he ate a fair few bites of it in the end.

    He's not a picky eater but still, it was lovely to see him enjoying a new food!

    I'll need this when I have kids.

    SO important! Many parents think then their children won't "learn to like" plain foods, but I have found just the opposite to be true. I never grew up with ranch, but we did use ranch, thousand Island, several home-made sauces and dips, and M happily ate and eats with or without dip. I think there is alot of fear about fat that underlies not using sauces, dip and fats with foods…

    I though the tip about adding dips and sauces was simple but brilliant.
