Dragon’s eye master

While we were told Dian wasn’t given much solid food in foster care, he has immediately taken to it. Evelyn thinks he’s already looking less gaunt. He loves veggies and even fed some green beans to Selam yesterday, which she found very entertaining. And she ate them! That’s a great thing since she’s become much more fussy about her vegetables in the last few months.

And Dian clearly is experienced with eating dragon’s eye. It’s a small, round fruit similar in appearance and taste to the lychee nut. About the size of a grape, it has a soft outer shell. Dian expertly takes a bite to crack the shell, removes the peel with his cute, little, dexterous fingers and pops the fruit into his mouth, then presents us with the small purple pit. He can eat these all day long. So could I; they’re very tasty though a bit of work for a small reward.
