    There's nothing wrong with whateverworks parenting. I think of it as a bit like attachment parenting - I have a strong attachment to the concept of all being alive and fairly sane at the end of the day so I'll do whateverworks

    Winning with beans and eggs. There's quite a bit of good quality protein in dairy too. Does your DS like yoghurt and cheese?

    Loves yoghurt & cheese... He's a pretty good eater really, just the meat thing is a bit hit & miss so not overly worried!

    Winning!

    Yoghurt is our fall back food when all else fails. We are lucky in that there's a local brand of nice Greek yoghurt he likes and that's easy to get at shops/supermarkets.

    Although I'm wondering if he only likes it because it's the same colour and similar texture to Sudocream, his most favourite food...

    You should write a book about #whateverworks parenting. It should make you instantly rich and think of all the "potatoes" you could buy with your sqillions

    Potato...ha! I do this with pasta, I call it cheese and they'll try it. So what if there is a lot of 'cheese' in their world....

    I was thinking about this thread today as DS ate all of his serving and most of my serving of spaghetti bolognaise. Yes, made with beef (red meat) and tomato. It's currently his favourite food...

    A reminder that for most challenges that crop up with babies and toddlers, the best approach is probably to ignore it and/or roll up into the foetal position on a comfy couch to chant "this too shall pass, this too shall pass"

    DS seems to have turned a corner with his meat eating, but I've probably relaxed alot more about it, we eat with him every night now & have pretty much the same dinners, it seems to have improved his eating no end!

    Same here! I also started giving them more of our normal food and to be honest it has more flavour! I think I was too focused on being super healthy and was leaving things plain. As they got older they needed more taste. My two still don't eat a chunk of beef or chicken, but if it's minced or chopped into recipes they will eat all fish and meat. They loooove ham but I'm trying to limit this a bit.

    I agree....this too shall pass is a great motto for parenting
