    Default 2 toddlers on formula and 3rd a month away

    Hi I'm just seeking some advice on how people got their kids off formula.

    I have an almost 3 year old and a 17 month old both still on formula with a newborn due around New Years. I was wondering how I could get my two toddlers off formula at the same time but the problem is they are both REALLY picky eaters. I actually worry everyday for my almost 3 yr old that if I cut her formula intake she'll be malnourished in some way as she won't touch vegetables or fruit. I think I could get my 17 month old reasonably easy except when he sees his sister with a bottle he wants one also. With the newborn due soon it's a large possibility of me using those bottles so I can't hide them. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I just switched my kids over to milk at 12 months. They didn't have any complaints about the swap. Formula for 3 kids would cost a fortune!

    Have a look at veggie smuggling websites, there are tonnes of ways to get veggies into kids without them even knowing. Also would she drink a fruit & veg smoothie in a cup that you can't see into so she can't see the colour? Is she would, you could do spinach, banana and ripe pear; it is super sweet and I don't think it tastes healthy because it's so yummy. Good luck :-)
