I know I should probably post this in the feeding section, but I thought I should try posting it here as it seems to get more foot traffic
DS is 16 months old and is a fussy eater. The texture, colour and smell of food all matters to him. He would look at the food first (he doesnt like green or yellow coloured food), then he would touch it (he doesnt like feel of meat), then he would smell it (He seem to like sweet smell), then he would attempt to eat it (if the food passes the test).
Breakfast is not a problem, he eats cereal, with / without milk. French toast, pancakes, fruit etc. He loves nutella, so when he wont eat something (toast with avocado) I would put a tiny bit of nutella on it, so he sees it and smells it.
He has yogurt and crackers, fruit and biscuits as snack and he loves them.
Lunch and dinner is what I am having problems with.
At the moment, he is addicted to noodles. I think because it long and fun to eat. I would make him noodles with vegetables or chicken and etc, but he would only pick out the noodles and wont even touch anything else. So for the past week, hes been having just plan noodles for lunch and dinner!
I would like to know what sort of lunch and dinner do you feed your toddler (as many ideas as possible please). Have you come across similar situations before if so how did you overcome it!
Also if your child wont eat what you serve, would you cook something else to serve him or let him starve for the night ?
