I remember vividly when the fussy stage of eating hit us. We went from a toddler who very happily ate absolutely everything I gave him, to a stressful monster who only wanted to eat the same tiny selection of foods over and over and over.
Three and a bit years later, while Nicholas generally eats a wider variety of foods (thank goodness!), the range of vegetables he’s happy to eat is MUCH smaller than I’d like. I don’t stress about it… well not in front of him… but I definitely dream of the day when my child is no longer fussy. Please let it be before he moves out!
Feeding My Kid made a super helpful infographic with lots of useful tips to keep you sane when dealing with the challenge of a picky eater who refuses to eat their veg. And for even more practical advice, read How to Get Your Kids to Eat Vegetables by my paediatrician friend Dr Orlena Kerek.
