    Default Recipes for super fussy toddler..?

    My son is so fussy when it comes to dinner time. The only things he's sure to eat is pasta, sausages and chips. That's it. Unless I puree the hell out of vegies and hide them in his food he won't touch them.

    Should I just try new things and if he doesn't eat them, just keep on trying? Night after night?

    Just want to give him some variety as the poor thing must be so sick of spag bol by now! haha

    Thanks

    I would keep trying. I heard a toddler can require over 10(?) times of trying a new food before their taste buds will adjust. Also, even when my ds is going through a picky phase and flat out refuses something, I require that he keeps a little bit of it on his plate throughout dinner. Having to look at it throughout his meal somehow helps him forget that he doesnt want it.

    Some toddler friendly meal ideas...

    Marinate salmon in soy sauce and honey for 30 mins and then grill for 5 mins. I serve this with rice noodles, broccoli and asparagus. Or brown rice. Or home made chips and salad. Ds loves it.

    Tofu -- in a stir fry. Easy and delicious.

    Scrambled eggs -- ds thinks having breakfast for dinner is fun. Lol.

    Pumpkin soup

    Tacos -- so easy and you can hide a lot of veg in them

    Risotto - easy texture for toddlers and easy to hide veg

    Tuna patties


    Hope that helped! Sorry for spelling/grammar- I'm on my phone!
