    Easy dinner tonight, I'm struggling through the days at the moment and even with a 3hr nap today I was too exhausted to make much effort. DD enjoyed it though

    I've recently discovered that she'll eat lettuce if it's shredded/cut in strips and is only green, so no fancy red of purple ones. I get excited when she eats green things!

    Just wanted to say that for anyone who finds this thread upsetting or thinks it's about judging parents on what they feed their kids, that is not the reason I have participated in it.

    I post here as it helps motivate me to cook and gives me ideas for things to try. DD doesn't always eat what I give her and has her fussy days, but I know I'm lucky to have a good eater. You'll also notice that I pretty much only post dinner. I struggle with lunch and she has the same thing for breakfast every day with the exception of one weekend day when we might make scrambled eggs or pancakes.

    Hopefully people can take some ideas from this thread to help with their fussy eaters, and also share what they are offering as we can all learn from each other.

    Totally agree @Cue

    I post here because I like to share ideas... And despite what some may think its a total non-judgement zone aswell. Getting kids to eat is a struggle & yes I am lucky that my DS tries new things, but that does not mean we don't have nights where he throws everything off the side of his highchair. :-)

    @Cue I started the 'other' thread that may have sparked some people to say they would never post in here. By no means did I mean any negativity towards this thread. Just that I wouldn't post pics here because foods are so limited with my dd... and that a thread for difficult eaters would be a 'safe' place for posters to share their battles and wins with food. Plus I don't think I'd have anything good to contribute or anything in common here but that I might with other problem eater families... if you get what I mean!
    Also. ..seeing the amazing food some of your kiddies eat can be upsetting for us mummies who can't get their kids to eat similar. I'm totally jealous of the amazing food here.
    hope that explains my purpose.

    I completely get what you're saying, it's just that there were a few comments that made it sound like this was a braggy thread that made other mums feel bad and I wanted to clarify that it isn't the case at all (or at least not the intention). Having read through the other thread there are kids in there that eat things DD wouldn't touch, so we all have our wins and losses with these little terrors!

    Good luck with your fussy eater, hopefully things improve for you soon.

    I dont think that was the purpose of this thread at all, its clear your intentions were good I have posted in here and also in the problem eater thread as I have 2 fantastic eaters and one who is so hard to feed he reduces me to tears often! So I can see both sides of the coin

    @Tamtam
    I said this previously, but I started this thread. Does that mean I can speak on behalf of it? I don't know...anyway... I think yours is a great thread. I popped in to have a look, and some days I feel like DD would fit in well with your little ones. I know I'm pretty lucky with DD though, and it makes a lot of sense to have somewhere to share with people facing similar struggles. I just want to add that if anyone wants to post pictures of half-eaten weetbix, rejected green beans or biscuits for breakfast then they're more than welcome to


    Assss for DD - no pictures today, but her lunch was about 2 bites of a mushroom and a rice cake. She ignored purple beans and the zucchini slice that she LOVED 2 days ago. The zucchini slice looks like this:

    Yep... totally agree with you guys.
    Cue... Sorry if you thought the other thread was bagging out this one. .. That was not my intention!

    DD is really hit and miss with things like slices too, it's so annoying because she'll devour it one day then refuse to eat the rest of it on subsequent days.
