Toddlers are so so picky! My best tip for you is to make it fun. Use cookie cutters to make cool fruit shapes, offer them a lot of colorful food, and make everything finger food! 0 Likes

My 3 y.o is the same way!! Pickier then my older one too that’s for sure. I’ve started including her in my meal planning which has helped. We look through kid-friendly cookbooks together and she picks things out that she wants to try. 0 Likes

I have a few picky eaters as well, what I like to do is blend the food into their meals so they get all the servings needed. ( i.e. if I make Mac & cheese I blend broccoli into the sauce mix before adding it at the end). 1 Like

Try letting your little one be involved in the cooking even if it’s a small task 1 Like
