What you need is a plan and you need to stick to it. There is at least a dozen options in this thread alone. You need to be persistent for a week. Whatever advice you like the best start with that. It might take a few goes to get it right but you have to be persistent. Don't let it get to you because he will see it gets a reaction from you. Food is one of the only things toddlers can control so he's just trying to take control.
I agree with JATS, my standard response to "I don't like it" or "I don't want to eat it" is now "That's fine, you don't have to, just remember that it's not another meal time for another X hours/until morning" and eventually she learnt that if she came to me an hour later saying "Mum I'm hungry!" the response was always "Ok it's (next meal) at (time) which is in (however long) and you can play/clean up, etc until then"
I used to work in a bakery and have an intrest in nutrition
it's a one of those useless infos that live in my head
like that the last successful invasion of Britain was the battle of Hastings in 1066
these things just stick in my head for some reason I'm full of useless facts
that I've always wante to use
No where did I attack this woman
I wasn't even quoting her I was reffering to another post
No I don't think it's mean at all.
I would offer him a healthy option instead like fruit or yoghurt, if he doesn't like that then I'd just wait until he is hungry and try again.
tonight he ate 3 teaspoons of spag bog mince. he wasnt interested in the spagetti or the cheese i offered him which he said he wanted. i was happy he had his 3 teaspoons. they werent full sized teaspoons but he still had his 3.
to everyone who is focusing on the sausage roll, substitute that for spagetti bog. would that be mean of me to give him that if he is hungry or go without?
he is asleep now as he is tired and i know he will wake up later.
