    Default Food for a teething toddler

    Poor 16mo dd is cutting 6 teeth, including all 4 molars, at once. She's not keen to eat at all. She just wants to bf. I've tried soft foods but she's rejecting those too. Does anyone have any suggestions for foods that might entice her? She's a slow teether so this will probably take a few weeks yet.

    Creamed rice, custard (homemade with extra eggs), baked ricotta, watermelon, cucumber, soups (my kids adore soups), poached chicken/fish flaked/shredded.

    Yoghurt, scrambled eggs with cheese, tuna mornay pasta bake that my DD eats cold, fritters, pikelets, muffins..savoury/sweet, cold roast chicken, potato salad, jelly, slices like a zucchini one you can serve cold, fritatta, fish cakes.

    I tend to give my DD who's just over 14 months food she can eat cold or at room temp.

    Yep, anything soft like PP's suggestions. Have you tried fruit smoothies? Mine would usually eat bananas as well.

    I found the Hylands Teething a tablets worked for the pain as well. My DS cut most of his teeth (eyes and molars were awful) without much drama apart from buckets of drool. But my DD struggled and did 4-5 at a time as well poor thing. Hylands worked when panadol didn't. They are magic.
