    Tonight she did a full bowl of pasta, mushroom, 1 bite of carrots and Chinese melon. No meat at all... So I guess if I look at yesterday and today, she had a balance diet lol...

    I did read a while ago, but I'm not sure what age this applies up to, that for babies you should look at their diet over the course of a week rather than worrying about what they have each day.

    You need to look at her diet over the whole week, not just daily, toddlers dont need everything daily

    I just read the article from raising children, I think my DD meets the diet requirement for dairy, fruit (she often eats much more than she should), meat. Carb she may meet half and vegetable maybe 1/4 I am really struggling with the veggie part, DD only likes eggplant, mushroom at the moment and if I Iet her she can eat a dozen of mushrooms, and half an eggplant. I am not sure if I should?? Because that sound like a lot of mushroom for a little kid.

    Mushrooms are great but too much of any food is not good - just keep offering a wide variety and skip the mushrooms for a couple of days - toddlers like what they know so if you let her choose between mushrooms and another food she will go for what she knows - what about corn on the cob or peas? Would she eat those? Or capsicum or carrot sticks with dip as an afternoon /pre dinner snack?

    DD does eat a bit of carrot, maybe once or twice a week. She was into corn many months ago not sure if she is still into it, I can try that on Friday. Capsicum , she would have a bite hate everything that is green so green beans, broccoli, zucchini (with skin), celery stick, leafy vege are all out.
