Fried Rice is the Gateway Starch

Last night Max ate a bunch of new foods, all in one meal. He has eaten rice cereal. He has eaten peas. But he has consistently rejected them in their non-smooth format. Last night Julian made Chicken Fried Rice for dinner. We had chicken, peas, broccoli, and fried rice. We also had some leftover white rice since I cooked up a little too much when I was making the rice to make into fried rice. Max likes to eat whatever I am eating, so he was happy to eat some broccoli. And some chicken. And then I tried him on a few peas and he went for them. And then he ate some of the fried rice. And then he even ate some plain rice. And he was loving it! As MitreBob said, fried rice is the gateway starch...
