    what things does he dislike? might be easier to suggest things if we knew what he doesn’t like.

    My nephew 5 loves a ‘tasting plate’ cheese, veggies, fruit, hummus, crackers and other things. He likes to be able to pick at different things.
    Popcorn, pita chips ( just toast a pita bread).

    Hi there, how about boiled eggs, a sausage or chicken strip with yoghurt dip ( i always cook extra protein so i have it handy for snacks that are filling).

    - Muffins (sweet or savoury)
    - Mini pizza scrolls
    - Pizzas
    - Fruit pancakes
    - Bliss balls
    * all freeze well to batch cook and he can help make them, helping usually gets my kids more keen to try something new too.

    - Fruit platter (can use play doh stencil things to get cool shapes/things in softer fruits like watermelon) with yoghurt for dipping
    - Tasting plate
