    Default How can I get my 20 month old to eat savoury!

    My 20 month old has recently refused to eat anything savoury. I've tried a variety of different sandwich fillings, crackers and cheese, toast with cheese spread, scrolls. he did have a bite out of a cheese muffin recently. I tend to give up and give him fruit and a yoghurt as I don't want him to have nothing! What should I do? Is it just a temporary thing? I'm worried he's not getting a varied diet.

    Have you tried dips? Guacamole or tzatiki with veggie sticks or crackers?

    Just keep offering and make sure he sees you eating and enjoying the snacks - make up an antipasto plate for the two of you - boiled eggs, olives, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese etc

    My DS loves fruit and yoghurt too 😊 he really enjoys a "smoothie bowl" which I put avocado, spinach, banana, kale and yoghurt in, I top it with slices of kiwi, puffed rice and chia seeds .
    Does he eat muffins? Can always sneak extra veg in there, or maybe chickpea cookies?

    If they have been a good eater and this is a new thing, then I'd say it is just a phase. My first went through this, loved veggies then around 2 just started refusing every veg except carrot. I just made sure each meal there were foods she would eat (so she wouldn't go hungry) plus some she wouldn't. After a few months sge just started eating them again and everything was back to normal. I never offered yoghurt and fruit at the end just because she was being a fussy pants.

    My 2nd has always been fussy. Again, I make sure each meals includes foids I know he will eat plus a 'challenge' food. If he refuses an entire meal I try not to give him an alternative right away but let him leave the table, pack away the meal then offer him an alternative 30 min or so later. That way he doesn't sit down to a meal knowing something else is coming if he doesn't like it.
