DS is 18 months old he used to eat so well now dinner is such a struggle. All I ask of him now is to try something. If he has one mouthful Im happy. I find sometimes just putting the food in front of him and letting him do it in his own time works best. The more I stress the more stressed he becomes.
I've started doing basic meats eg grilled chicken, nuggets with vege inside, mince, sausages and pairing them with salads eg egg, asparagus, cheese, steamed vege, carrot sticks, pineapple, beet root, lettuce, cherry tomatoes or coleslaw/ potato salad and my DS loves it! Means he is eating a variety of things including vegetables without the nightly dinner fight. Just have to keep him away from Nanas for awhile as he was starting to get a sweet tooth due to things my mum sneaks him. He's also enjoying his fruit more during the day now that he's now getting the artificial sugar.
