Firstly I want to say 'don't stress'.
Toddlers are not emotional eaters. They eat when hungry. If I stuff myself one day, I am not very hungry the following day either. & if I stuff myself for a week, I could go a day or two on crumbs
My DD is/was a 'fussy eater'. I spent HOURS concocting 'interesting' meals and waiting anxiously by her side to praise if she so much as licked something.
A YEAR later (she's 2 now) I 'gave up'/'ran out of energy'. & told her 'to eat what she was given' (I'd give her fruit, shed ask for cheese, I'd tell her 'no cheese, your morning tea's on your table' and ignore her)
Surprise surprise, she gave in!
She now has;
Breakfast; porridge w berries (1/2 cup) or toast (2 pieces) or 3 weetbix.
Morning tea: fruit (1-2 whole pieces)
Lunch: chicken or ham salad sandwich
Afternoon tea: 3/4 cup yogurt
Dinner: what ever we are having but only 1/2 as much as we eat.
She also still has 200ml milk morning & night.
She's very tall, and 15 kg.

Hi Tubster. I get a lot of recipes from this book: http://www.booktopia.com.au/deceptiv...061767937.html and some from this book: http://www.fishpond.com.au/Books/Bab.../9781863965569
The pikelets in the first book are great. Just uses a shake pikelet mix and you add like pureed sweet potato etc and there is another recipe in there with puree beetroot and ricotta and grated apple. Sounds not too flash but they love them.
There are also some really good muffin recipes in these books with heaps of carrot, pineapple, apple, cauliflower(!), squash (!) hidden in them. I just cook them up in mini muffin tins and freeze them for daycare lunches.
I also cook 2 of these each week: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/5546/zucchini+slice and cut up and freeze for lunches. Sometimes if work has been busy and I get home really late I will even get one out of the freezer for my tea!
Would love to see what others give their 1-2 year olds for food. I learn so many good ideas from you other mummas.
