My 20 month old doesn't eat much. His main things are yogurt, vegemite on toast or sandwiches, cheese, avo and banana mash, grapes, tinned fruit salad, scrambled egg with ham and cheese, tinned spaghetti
Search for things to give him that have goodness in them I found this
Serves 2 toddler size serves
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
2 tbs apple puree
whizz it all up until smooth and serve. So easy and he thinks it's icecream!!
I also have been adding carrot and sweet potato puree to his tinned spag and he hasn't noticed the difference
What have you found that works?

Whenever i have people over with kids they always eat my cornflake chicken , even the fussy ones! ( it was a mkr recipe I altered)
Whizz up cup freedom food cornflakes ( organic, low salt , fortified) 1/4cup cheese (grated) 1 garlic clove, handful baby spinach, tablespoon chia seeds and you have your crumb mixture - I buy the little chicken drumettes ( or just cut them from a wing myself) as they are great finger foods for toddlers then just do a normal egg wash crumb and put them on a tray with baking paper, spray over some olive oil and bake in 180 oven for 25 mins - they are great cold and good for lunch boxes
Also veggie chips - using a peeler slice thin slices of parsnip, carrot, beet root , put on baking tray , spritz with olive oil and bake for ten mins - Ds calls then purple and orange chips and even my fussy 10 year old niece eats them!
In summer I make homemade ice blocks - Greek yogurt with fresh fruit , purée and pour into moulds!

Don't worry about him eating meat, at 26 months I was convinced my son was a vegetarian but at about 2 he suddenly became interested in meat and couldn't get enough of it!

DS1 can be really picky at times but he loves chilli con carne! He sings to himself while eating it lol. I put 2 tins of red kidney beans in it aswell. He will have 2 big bowls of it. Also Sheppards pie I put heaps of peas and corn in it.

Damn I wish my fussy eater would eat these sorts of things but she won't try anything mushy or saucy!
