This has been done to death and I'm sorry for doing it again! I'm sure I've asked it as well but I can't find the threads I'm looking for!
So DS goes to day care one day a week. It's a nut and egg free centre. He doesn't like fruit (except sultanas) and doesn't like veggies.
I usually send him with a hot meal or sandwich (I've started sending a ham cheese and sauce wrap) yoghurt or custard, sultanas and usually just add some cheese and crackers. I'm 100% sure he's bored of this. I'm bored of sending it! I seriously have no idea what to send with him. He never tried anything different and only wants to eat crap! I really don't want to do that. I'm in desperate need of ideas please. I'm happy to make stuff. Just have to hope he tries it for me.
Please hit me with your ideas!!

These are great! Thank you! I make so many different things and he rejects them every time! Some times I wonder why do I bother trying but I want him to eat more!

Keep offering. Depending on your parenting style and babies age you could be more strict.

You might find at day care he is more willing to try new things?! Especially if all the other kids are eating it.
Pasta with hidden veg in the sauce
Lentil and mashed veg patties
green cheesy pasta cups (whizzed up broccoli)
banana, oat and date biscuits (just whizzed up banana and date and add oats and bake)

These suggestions are great! I'm going to try them. I can only hope he will eat them!
Inner hippy - he certainly does eat more variety at day care. He will try different fruits and different treats they have.. At home he just says yuck. For everything!!! I do worry about sending new things and if he refuses them then he won't be getting a full meal (they'd give him something if he wouldn't eat his lunch)
