So DD will be 3 in a couple if weeks and she's the fussiest eater.
I'm getting so sick of her not eating meat that isn't sausages or chicken nuggets (even then she refuses it), will only have rafferty pouches, every attempt to give her veggies otherwise fails, she will eat carbs (including potato such as hash browns or chips) and the pouches and soy yoghurt and that's about it.
She's dairy intolerant to dairy, allergic to sesame, peanuts, tree nuts and egg unless baked into something.
I'm wondering if I just need to bite the bullet and stop giving her these foods and only give her what I want her to eat and hope she eats something?
If I give her new foods with foods she likes she has the food she likes and doesn't even touch the other food so that doesn't work....
How did everyone else solve their non-adventurous fussy eating toddler problems? Or did you not bother? Did they grow out of it? Or do you still have older kids who are just as fussy as they were as toddlers.

Id just keep putting new things on the plate with the old faves, don't make a comment about what she eats, take the stress and pressure out of meal times. Eventually she will start to try new stuff

Is it a texture issue or the flavour of things she doesn't like?

We weren't too adventurous with her food when she started solids because there was so much she couldn't eat. So now I think she just gets scared to try new things as we still always have to tell her she can't eat certain things as they will make her sick. So there is an element of anxiety there too.

Can you hide veg in other things like bubble and squeak or sauces?
What about letting her help when you make dinner. My DS was being picky and I started to let him help, just little things like adding herbs or spices before I turned on the stove but because he helped make it he was more willing to eat it.
Definitely don't make a big deal over if she tries things or not as I still remember my mum carrying on if I tried something new and I still feel self conscious now if I find myself facing something unfamiliar.
