Nomsie- I do the same sort of thing with my girls.
Also for dinner, I will serve it in courses. The other day I gave them carrot sticks first, then a small bowl of frozen peas and corn, then a couple of steamed broccoli florets each, then some mashed potato and sausage. They ate every last bit, but if I had have given it to them all on the same plate, probably just the sausage and potato would have been eaten.
My girls both love fresh dates, corn thins with peanut butter, dry cereal like nutrigrain, muffins (banana or apple) and I make a great anzac slice. Also popcorn or pretzels are a special treat. They like carrot sticks with hommus, raw beans and snow peas, banana, strawberries and blueberries, pita bread wraps with avocado, cheese and ham.

These are all great ideas.
I think that most toddlers are fussy, and most of us parents are going grey because of it!
Mine is super fussy, but one thing I can always usually count on is sushi,
Good luck and as my friend says, they all go through stages, with their food you just have to keep trying xx
