Re: 2yo slooooooow eater
My ds1 is a slow eater. He gets really distracted (has ADHD and SPD). He's 5 now, he's been this way since he was a little over one. I never push him to eat faster or tell him he's slow as that can create bad eating habits in the future (like eating too fast to please me and then creating bad tummy aches, obesity, etc).
For trying new foods I just keep offering it, it takes roughly around 12 times for a child to like something new. When they are older and they really don't like it then I don't offer anymore, kids just like adults do have different tastes.
