My dd is 2 and a quarter and she's such a fussy eater! Her main issue is with fruit and vege, she basically won't touch them. She just says it's yucky and turns her head away and screams.
I'm working 4-5 days a week and am exhausted trying to cook things with hidden veg that she will actually eat. I get really upset with her if I make a big effort and she won't touch it. Stupid I know but it really pushes my buttons! I can hide vege in a few things but the portoins size is so small compared to what she should have.
She loves eggs, fish & chicken, pasta and any type of bread/cracker/cake/snackbar. She will eat the squeezy fruit pouches but lately it's only one variety. She will eat avocado sushi but not avocado at home, grrrr.
I keep wondering if it's something I did thats made her like this? We are a pretty healthy family and eat lots of fruit & vege and rarely eat takeaway. She had no processed food when she was little and starting to eat.
She is a very good eater of the things that she likes so at least I'm not worried about her weight.
She does still have reflux which I know can be tied to fussy eating.
Anyway just wanted to have a vent, any support/advice welcomed!
Oh yeah before I had kids I used to laugh at people who said their kid was fussy and secretly think it was all their fault... ah parenting, what a great way to keep your ego in check
