    Probably just a stage. I wouldn't put too much attention on it. As long as they are happy and healthy they'll be fine

    I have two fussy eaters!! its so annoying as i invested in a thermomix a year ago and my cooking is pretty good!!! They are obsessed with yogurt more than anything, they absolutely point blank will not eat vegetables and i do carry on with it on there plates.... its so fustrating. I make wonderful simple vege soup that they used to eat but now won't , homemade breads and healthy pizza all big no no now!! Then they had a devilled sausage stage they didnt mind but now its a no no!! I made home made pasta and beautiful sauce but no!!! In the end you just get sick of cooking..... mine will not even eat homemade chicken nuggets and chips....arrgghhhh!!

    so when they wake i make a green smoothie and put it in coloured lidded beakers so they cannot tell or a fresh carrot beetroot and apple juice, half hour later its cereal and toast and then all day its a struggle!!!!!!

    My DS is exactly the same, thinks he knows what everything tastes like before he's tried it.
    He's been like this since 12mths old, he's now almost 4.
    We're starting to see an improvement now though..
    Broccoli being something he LIKES , shocker!
    I can't get him to eat anything that's a sauce or in any way runny.
    That excludes a lot.
    He's only recently tried pizza, that being the very first combination food...
    bread cheese and meat in one bite.
    It kills me because I'm not a bad cook, he's missing out hehehe

    You're ds sounds like mine, if its saucey its automatically 'eewww'.

    He LOVES broccoli too :/

    Dairy is 'eeww' , most fruits are 'eeww' .

    Milk and cheese he's ok with, the occasional yogurt too, but that has to be in one of those squirty pouches.
    Fruit, not a single bit, he attempted an orange segment today and almost gagged.
    Nuts, dry pasta, rice, and cereal he's ok with.

    DS is a fussy eater too, his interest in foods comes in phases, for a while he loves savoury pancakes, then it was nutella, now he loves cereals. Everytime I make him lunch or dinner I have my fingers crossed that he will eat them! At the moment hes into noodles, PLAIN noodles, so I would try to feed him something different first, if doesnt work I would give him noodles so he wont go to bed hungry. Drives me crazy sometimes.

    I feel your pain! Our household could feed a third world village with the amount of perfectly good food we throw out due to our fussy DS....

    I have found something lately that seems to be working tho, at meal/snack times, I give him two options ie; do you want cream cheese or jam on your toast? He is told that he must choose one or I'll choose it for him... When he decides - its like it was his decision all along (gotta love that male mind at such a young age!)

    If he chooses cream cheese on toast & doesn't eat it, his current fave toy/colouring-in book is taken off him for a day - but placed in an area where he can see it but not touch it - drives him nuts! But every time he sees that "banished" possession & whinges for it I remind him of why it's there... I'm a mean mum huh...

    Seems to be working so far....

    Good luck

    Excellent.
    The two choice thing is only starting to work for us now too,
    as he's only just grasped the meaning of it.
    We had some speech delays but he's really come far in the last few mths.
    It was so hard, dealing with his refusal to eat, and then not being able to bargain with him because he didn't understand.
