Im about ready to pull my hair out trying to get my daughter to eat properly.
She is 17 months and until recently ate brekky, lunch and dinner with no major problems. We have just moved houses and spent a short time living with inlaws - dont know if the move had anything to do with it.
For brekky she normally has weetbix softened with hot water with milk which i feed her then she will have 2-3 strawberries or a bannana, or for a self feed option toast or cereal pieces with a cup of milk and fruit.
Lunch is normally a sandwich (cheese, vegemite & cheese & ham & cheese) followed by yoghurt or more fruit. If its not a sandwich i will give her a jar (she likes the pumpkin and ricotta one).
Dinner i try to give her what were having but modify hers a bit so she can eat it. Meat is ok she will eat that... just everything else is a problem She hates veg except sweet potato and pumpkin. She wont even eat potato unless its a chip (oven baked...not deep fried). I find that most food is just played with smooshed all in her hair and dropped on the floor. Last night we had crumbed chicken, peas, corn, broccoli and pasta and she wouldnt eat the pasta or the veg... even mixed in together and broken up - just spat it out and played with it.
Snacks during the day are normally pretty healthy. She will have cheese, fruit, sultanas or the cereal bars made for kids.
Anything from a jar she will eat!
She still has 2 bottles (morning & night). I give her S26 Gold Alpha Pro step 3.
What should i be feeding her at this age?
I dont know what to do. Open to all suggestions!
