    Default Show me your problem eater thread!

    So the other thread about kids food got me thinking. ...I would never post a pic there because my dd is a difficult eater....

    BUT I thought if you have troublesome eaters in your house this might be a safe place to share your kid's food. . wins and fails!! And maybe get some ideas.
    No judgements!!

    I'll start. .. my DD is 19 months. She has a rare genetic syndrome that affects her eating and rarely. .. if ever, feels hungry. I struggle each day with each meal to find nutritious yet high fat soft foods she will eat. She has sensory issues and low muscle tone making food choices hard.

    Here's tonight's dinner. She ate a few mouthfuls.
    Ravioli with grated cheese, strawberry. .chocolate custard!

    Grrr.. won't add my pic!!

    Good on you @Tamtam. My 18mth old is a very picky eater (totally opposite to her big sister) and rarely sits down to eat a meal... just this afternoon she has eaten: strawberries, grapes, a marshmallow (ok 2), a little piece of chocolate cake, sucked on a lemon, a piece of nectarine and an apple. She has had 2 x jatz with french onion dip, a pouch of custard, some lamb risotto (pouch) some home made chicken korma and rice, a bottle of formula and a lot of water... not feeling very good about food choices today. I am trying to keep her busy, but she is constantly at the fridge! (Btw, she is normal body weight at the moment, think she is having a growth spurt)...

    Bahaha! Love this thread! Thanks TamTam, I am sooo embarrassed when I go into the other one and read what other kids eat. My DD's range of foods is so limited!

    For dinner today she ate half a packet of Raffertys Garden Italian Lasagne. Sounds ok, but that is the only thing she will eat for dinner so she has the same thing every single night. This is followed by a couple of spoonfuls of Tamar Valley Mango Yoghurt. Again, no other brands or flavours are acceptable. I have tried home made meals, she will not touch them.

    Apart from that she eats: Farex cereal with apple, white bread toast with peanut butter, cruskits with cream cheese and purée fruit. That is it.

    She is such a horrid eater and I am so embarrassed when we spend time with friends who have bubs the same age who eat so well. I don't know how this has happened, DH and I are both healthy eaters who eat a good home cooked diet.

    Oh I am so glad to read someone the same. My DD who is almost 10 is also a fussy eater and weighs about 24kg or so .

    She will eat one thing one day and then won't touch it the next week if I make it.

    I feel much more at home in this thread than the others that show what wonderful foods their children eat.

    My 2 year old son used to be a great eater then one day turned super fussy, he will eat fruit, yoghurt, porridge, rice cakes and carrot. He will occasionally eat plain pasta and about once a week I can get him to eat some mince.
