  • It’s just a phase.. Sometimes when we eat out I’m sure others think we’re depriving our toddler! Always a bowl of plain rice with nothing Else! But that’s what he likes!


  • Happens to lots of people – I just persisted till they eventually got interested in food again.


  • yes i got the fussy stage too. sometimes they want the same thing over and over for every meal. lol


  • Its a stage my daughter was the same till she discovered tomatoes and bbq sauce now she will try anything as long as its covered in that.


  • My daughter went through a cheese only stage from 18 months to 3 years, very annoying, even when going to Hungry Jacks or McDonald’s all she wanted was cheese (the counter staff were brilliant HJ’s charges 25 cents per cheese slice McDonald’s 50 cents). I tried everything to get her to eat something other than cheese, I made mac n cheese and hid cauliflower in it, I made cheese sauce to cover chicken nuggets. Yes it is a stage and they grow out of it, doesn’t make it any less frustrating.


  • It’s very common with toddlers.
    keep offering a small amount of a variety of foods. Talk about the colours of foods they are eating. Keep mealtimes stress free by not hastlying them to eat
