    My ds who turns 4 on Tuesday refused food till he was 2. He is still the fussiest child. If he could eat Nutella sandwiches he would for every meal. But we are really pushing him to eat better. Last night he actually for the first time in his life ate a small serve of mash potato with silverside. He loves apples banana watermelon and grapes. Has only just started to eat mandarins. Finally will eat 1 weetbix with hot milk for breakfast some days. Loves scrambled eggs. And party pies dim sims steamed and noodles. But everyday we battle to get him to eat properly so if by bed time he complains he is hungry I will make him a hot milk milo or activite to give him more vitamins. Each day a step in the right direction. He weighs 14kg and my 1 year old eats more than him and weighs 13kg (he was born 10lb6 so started off huge)

    She's had her standard 2 mouthfuls of cereal. So here's breakfast take 2...
    I should probably just save my time and just tip it straight into the bin directly, but I have keep trying to feed this kid.
    Scrambled eggs with grated carrot and yellow cherry tomatoes and some grated cheese. Lets see how she goes, I'm betting 3 mouthfuls, max.

    I want to try the whole, well if you don't eat this you don't get your honey toast, yoghurt or fruit, but I'm too scared to send DD to bed with no dinner thinking she will wake in the night. Then,on the other hand I worry she will never eat well if I let her go straight to her favourites!

    Sorry, I'm an over thinker,over here! :s
    I'e now reached the point where they get dinner or nothing. I have 4 kids and if I only offered their favourites I'd be cooking 4 different meals every night. They don't wake up during the night hungry but they are in the morning and I get them to eat a good breakfast. Works for us.

    If it's a genuine dislike then I'll make them something else but if it's just general fussiness then no. DD2 is terrible at trying anything new. Now she will at least take a few bites.

    This of course all depends on how strong I'm feeling and whether I'm up to the battle.

    My most feared question in our house is "what's for dinner". I hate it when they ask as I know half of them will turn it on and cry or scream. DS now just refuses to come to the table.

    It's a circus here some evenings.

    Four bites. She then asked for rice. Rice for breakfast.

    I like the yellow cherry tomato idea - I might try that with my fussy 3 yo DD. I'm hoping she may not notice??

    She basically eats fruit, crackers, toast with vegemite, chicken nuggets and fish fingers. A little bit of raw carrot or cucumber. I'm always trying to get her to eat my home made creations of muffins/savoury pancakes/alledgedly kid friendly meals and she always refuses them. I'm starting to give up even trying. My mum & MIL just tell me I'm stressing myself out and to just feed her what she wants... I'm not sure a diet of biscuits and chicken nuggets are appropriate so alas I keep trying. Glad to hear I'm not alone!

    I got desperate today and offered him honey on his toast. Two bites. All he wants is fruit bars and arrowroot biscuits, and I wasn't the one who first fed him either of those things. So frustrating.

    I do the eat this or eat nothing with DS1 & DS3 and they both sleep through the night regardless. They are really great eaters though.

    DS2 I refuse to do that hard approach with, as he has a genuine reason for struggling with food. Its frustrating but the saying "they wont starve themselves" isnt true for DS2, if he doesnt want to eat something he will starve himself and it causes way more harm than good.

    However DS1 used to be fussy. I started the eat this or eat nothing approach at 2.5yrs old. By 3yrs his eating had improved immensely and now he will try almost anything. DS3 isnt at all fussy so far at 1yr old.

    hi, my DD is younger than yours but only once has she woken in the night due to hunger. I couldn't figure out what was wrong because she hasn't had night feeds for so long then finally I tried a bottle and she scoffed the whole thing then went straight back to sleep!

    This was after she had eaten literally nothing though for dinner. Unfortunately my MIL had come over that night and decided she wanted to feed her dinner. As well as being fussy over foods DD is also incredibly fussy over who feeds her and often refuses to eat for other people.

    Anyway, not sure if that really answers your question! DD is too young to reason with so of she refuses dinner I generally try something else: yoghurt or toast but have been wondering when to stop doing this too.

    Oh and I have spoken with DH and put a ban on MIL trying to feed her dinner!
