I found them at this fab bakery in mascot - mini brioche hamburger buns!!! So yummy! I stock up and freeze them!
What a great post! My little girl was a great eater till she turned approx 14mnths/started daycare - now she refuses all vegies/meat/anything warm practically. she lives on an abundance of fruit, yogurt, custard, vegemite sandwiches, anything with carbs really. I think the fact that i let her snack throughout the day isnt helping things but my question is: If your child refuses main meal of lunch or dinner do you offer something else? I try every night to give my little one a nice healthy dinner for example but she cracks it, and wont eat anything. so i give in with a vegemite sandwich :S she is almost 18mnths.
I ended up making a conscience decision to show no emotion over food with him. He was offered dinner if he refused I didn't pressure, get angry, make deals or offer anything else. I just told him if he didn't eat it he would have a shower & go straight to bed. This happened twice. On the third night he came out and decided to try his food. I would test his strength after each bite (as I told him he needed to eat a variety of foods to grow stronger). I would act like he was getting stronger after every mouthful. I also told him that if he didn't like anything he could spit it out but he might be surprised and like it. He went from a boy who only ate pasta (before that he ate soooooo well, all homemade heathy food) .... To a boy who now eats just about anything. I'll only introduce new foods once or twice a week. He eats chicken, fresh fish, salmon patties, steak, carrot, corn, peas, etc. all sorts of fruit, eggs, avocado, fresh dates, etc.
The only things he genuinely doesn't like are strawberries (crazy kid!!).
I found that not making food a stress or pressure and just a 'well that's what I'm offering take it or leave it' seemed to work for me. I'm now in the same process with DS2. He is a quite happy to go to bed without dinner but does have a late afternoon snack so I'm thinking of cutting that out as I don't think it's helping him want to eat dinner.

Dd looked pretty impressed with her dinner, I tried a bento style but day before grocery day I didnt have much to work with. She had broccoli, peas corn and carrot, a little bit of Moroccan chicken and some creamy pasta. She ate all the broccoli, all the peas corn carrot, some pasta, no chicken. This kid will not eat meat!
