i made chili for dinner last night, and before i added any spices i took some mince and onions out to give charlotte today. i even wrapped it in a spare tortilla and handed it over. she picked it up, pulled a bit of the meat out and put it into her mouth. she then grimaced, spat the meat out and flicked the tortilla so all the mince fell onto her tray. she then sucked on the tortilla and decided that is was no better and threw that on the floor. not a successful meal!
i gave her some rice cakes instead to appease her, and an apple fruit bar. she had a bit but didn't seem that bothered with these either.
