I've been scouring the net for help with my fussy eater and found a couple of books that have really helped
1. Give Peas a Chance-the foolproof guide to feeding your picky eater by Kate Samela
This one is from the US but is easily adapted to AUS. written by a peadiatric nutrition specialists. It has great ideas on how to add new foods. Love the writing style, easy and plain english.
2.Feeding Fussy Kids by Julie Maree Wood with Antonia Kidman. Some great recipes and ideas on boosting nutrition in the few things they will eat.
I borrow both from the library. I've used some of the ideas and for the past week ds has eaten something at every mealtime and has even tried a few new things too. No miracle cure but a lot better.

Hey thanks for posting this! Just today I was worrying once again about my fussy eater turned even fussier eater! Im at my wits end with what to cook for him. The little variety that he did eat, has reduced to only a handful of things now!
Do you think these books will help me with my 4 year old?

The second book has some great recipes and a few tricks to get extra in them without them even knowing. I feel a lot less stressed about it all and I think that has helped DS too. Now if he starts to muck around with his food I just say to him "Are you all done, will Mummy take it away now?" and he usually has a bit more. We have gone from barely getting him to eat half a sandwich to him even eating everything on the plate. I bought him a new plate, this one http://www.ozbabybargain.com.au/prod...ss-bus-platter and have been filling all the holes with different things and giving him a fork and letting him go for it. And it's working!!
Good luck, it's so stressful when they won't eat anything.

Off to the library I go. I really like that plate too, so I may even have to invest in that too! I will try just about anything to make Ds's food more appealing to him!
Thanks again for the tips.
