I thought of monitoring how much fruit LC eats in a day. Lo and behold! When I counted that day, LC ate 3 bananas, 2 indian mangoes minus one “simot” seed (he gave it to me),
And seven rambutans.
He ate 2 of the bananas and 5 of the rambutans for his morning snack. The rest he ate in the afternoon.
Yes, yes, he eats rambutan! And he knows not to eat the seed.🙂
He can peel and eat lanzones, kiat-kiat and dalanghita (this picture was taken many months ago) all by himself.
So I figured he can do rambutan, and indeed he can! I peel a portion of the fruit, since its skin is quite tough. Then he continues the peeling on his own. Now this is what we can call “masmasarap ang pinaghirapan.” ;)
Amusing isn’t it – how strong his pincer grasp has become or is it his determination to eat fruits?🙂
