    Default How to get nearly 4 year old to eat

    Dd1 is nearly 4 and is a fussy eater. She used to eat anything until she was about 2 and then started the I don't like anything but what she wants. She is now nearly 4 and my awesome eater dd2 is now starting to copy her and 'dont like it' I have 4 kids under 4 and I can't keep cooking dinner that they refuse to eat etc

    Default How to get nearly 4 year old to eat

    What does she eat? Do you eat with her? If there are no medical reasons and she's just being fussy it's just persistence and not making a big deal over food

    Find a food she will eat and add to it so you know she will eat something then if she won't eat it that's fine, don't make a fuss and put her dinner away until she wants it , my friend did this and after a few weeks her son just went back to eating what they did ( within reason obviously as she may genuinely not like particular foods ) just try all eat together and enjoy your food so she sees food as a good thing and not a fight

    We all pick one dinner a week we want, we must have a fish and veggies and a meat and veggies dinner one night every week and veggies are included in every meal but we meal plan together so DS feels like he is involved

    My DS1 (2 Years) is the same.. only milk.. no solid food.. I've tried almost everything.. he just tastes and spits it out.. except for corn and boiled peas.
