  • my 3yo is the same, but i have just come to the conclusion that all I’m doing is stressing myself out worrying about it. And it just put a lot more pressure on me that i didn’t need. so i now rotate the three dishes that he will eat. i occasionally throw something new into the mix, but if he doesn’t eat it, then i just shrug my shoulders.

  • Just dont tell him what hes getting and then put on the dinner table at dinner time or you can hide veggies in your cooking

  • Getting creative with food serving, as already mentioned, is a good place to start. Also letting your child help prepare the meal is encouraging. Also growing your own veggies to cook is good, a bit extreme but gets kids involved with food from the start

  • We make our food like art ie spaghetti in the bowl, spread the sauce over it then carrot rounds for eyes a potato cube for nose and spinach formed into.a line for mouth. Be creative and let your child help.
