    I love love love hash Browns. In fact I'm surprised she doesn't like them as I ate tons of them when I was pregnant. Lol. I've offered her a hash brown dozens of times when we've been out for brekky. She's never touches them.
    What was funny was dd likes to break food into tiny pieces to eat. Rather than bite into them. But she picked up half of the hash brown and bit into it like a 'regular' kid. DH and I sat there astounded! !!
    Unfortunately a lady walked behind her high chair in the cafe and accidently knocked it and that was it. All over. She melted down over the surprise of her chair being knocked and I couldn't calm her.

    Ha, ladies I was just half reading your recent posts and half reading one of those "4 Ingredients" cookbooks and there was a hash brown recipe that I wanted to try.....I wonder if you could hide something else in it?.....maybe a tiny bit of carrot?? Mashed steamed cauliflower could work too I think?

    And then I found some tomato & BBQ sauce recipes too......I'm probably dreaming that my dd will even taste these but, think I might give them a go. They seem easy enough that it's worth a try?!

    Tonight's fare:
    1407744849002.jpg
    vegetarian burger, green vegies and a little bit of bread roll. All completely untouched.

    When does a fussy toddler cross over to being an actual concern? How normal is this? I'm considering taking her to see a doctor, but everything I read seems to telling me it's "normal".
    All she's eaten today is a quarter tin of spaghetti and some rice crackers. Everything else I've offered has been ignored.

    @Marigold how old is your DD? Does she sleep well? I'm not sure when it becomes a problem but maybe if u think it affects her sleep or behavior? I have a fussy eater too but not as bad as others from what I've read. I'm not at the point of thinking it's a problem but I can see why you may want a professional opinion. So much conflicting info out there

    She has just turned 2.
    Her sleep goes from good to bad, but she's generally sleeping through the night these days, sometimes waking once for a small bottle of milk and she still naps for 2 hours during the day.
    I don't give her bottles instead of food during the day so she's not filling up on milk, she's just not interested in food. (she refuses milk in a cup, all other liquids she drinks from a cup though, she just likes the comfort of a bottle I think.)

    She snacks ok-ish some days, as in she will go for Sultanas, grapes, biscuits, ham and grated cheese, but will usually not eat a square meal. She picks at her favourite meals like rice, spaghetti bol and sometimes chicken, but it's rarely more than a few mouthfuls.

    My sons Paed and GP and OT all try to reassure me that I am doing all I can but its so hard. We are going to see a dietician and also a feeding specialist who is trained in speech pathology and OT so we can try and get an action plan in place. But we also have SPD here, so that affects him in that he literally will starve himself.

    Argh.
    Had to give ds a suppository tonight as it's been 9 days since he pooped (sorry.. Tmi!!)
    He eats no fruit or veg (mainly dairy, protein and carbs) so no fibre.

    Dd is so fussy that I'm just at the end of my little straw.

    I'm so sick of this!!!!!!

    She ate a piece of toast with peanut better (no crust), a raffertys veg pouch and 2 100ml bottles of milk ALL day! She's only 8kg at 18 months!
    Pushes EVERYTHING away!

    I'm sick of throwing food out.

    Sorry.. Tired and venting to all of you. Praying it ends soon and they both start gaining weight soon!!!!!

    It doesn't sound like its affecting her then. Stressful for mum though Everyone tells me not to stress and it will gradually improve. My DD ate pretty much the same as yours at 2 and now at 3.5 I would say she is somewhat improved. I now try to stick to set meal and snack times and in between only offer water and I think it helps. When she was 2 I was resigned to her being a "grazer" and she snacked on fruit, crackers, cheese, and some other foods that came and went. No real meals as such. Now she is a bit older and I've kept offering the meals she will eat Tuna Mornay, Tacos, chicken and veg (although we struggle to get 2 bites of chicken into her), pasta with only grated cheese on it or plain rice with nothing else. We all eat together at the table and I try to take the emotion out of it. If she wont eat I tell her thats ok, she just wont be getting anything else until the next meal/snack time. It doesn't usually sway her to eat more of what's in front of her but she will usually eat more at the next meal/snack. I hope things improve for you
